  1. You stole 295 cookies!


    Rules of the game: if you find this (anyone except the cookie thief themselves) then post here to say "I caught the cookie thief! BUT... someone else took 296 cookies from the cookie jar!" That way we know this player has been caught and we'll look on another profile. Next, copy this entire post and paste it onto someone else's profile (player must have more than 100 posts and must have been active in the last month.) Lastly, change the numbers so each increase by one. It will be easier to track that way. Please post your findings in the thread entitled SOMEONE STOLE A COOKIE! Forum Game. Have Fun!

  2. Hello! Long time, no read.

  3. I'm here. Much more lurky than I used to be, but I am here.
  4. We do not live in a super neighborhood. I only keep the windows open at night when it is really hot, and the Dude is home. If he is traveling, windows are shut....... tonight is going to be hot!:glare:
  5. A few different numbers for you....... I made fifty cents an hour for 3 kids when I was 13, lol! I paid $10. an hour for 2 kids the few times I had a teen sitter. Our piano teacher has 4 babysitters for her one child (we call ourselves her nanny team), and pays anywhere from $10 to $16 (one teen, one college girl, a mom who has an in-home day care, and me). As a nanny, I make between $15 and $20 an hour. I believe paying a teen at least $10 an hour helps them take the job and the responsibility seriously, and is worth every penny.
  6. I usually suffer horridly from allergies. I also get any cold or virus going around and get it three times worse than anyone else. I have been taking 8000 units of vitamin D every day for 5 months. I cannot believe the difference! I missed 2 days worth of doses last week, and was miserable. The next day, back on the vitamin D, and feeling fine. It is worth a shot......
  7. No new suggestions, just wanted to say I hope you feel better very soon. Hugs and smooches (maybe just air kisses, lol) coming your way.
  8. In addition to the suggestions so far, I would include some poetry. But then, I am an absolute poetry fiend. I FORCED my kids to memorize lots of poetry when we hsed. :001_smile:
  9. Didn't read other post yet, but I did this when we were hsing. We wanted the kids to explore and form thoughts and opinions, and be able to make educated choices about what spiritual options they may want to pursue as young adults. They were about 9 and 12 when we did this. The kids and I took an all day class from Terri at Knowledge Quest. Patty Johanna put it together, and it was full of info. She covered all the different types of "theisms", etc. (I am having trouble remembering what all else was covered.), from a Christian point of view, but very open-minded-ly. It was a great ju
  10. It's almost time to :party: I'm in the home stretch! Worked from 7 to 10, getting the 5 yr old to school, have to be back at 11:30 to pick her up. I will work the rest of the afteroon, then my dd and I will attend 18 yr old's graduation tonight, and then I am done working for 8 weeks!!!! I can take a break from :driving: and :auto:, and I am so gonna :chillpill: My mantra for today (besides the Just keep swimming, which you know I will be using, too:)) is "one more day, almost there". Have a great day today, folks. I will do my best to do the same!
  11. My son has always had a hard time sleeping. He didn't sleep through the night till he was 4. We had the best luck with Hyland's Calm and Forte' tablets. He still doesn't sleep much.
  12. My son and I are extros, dd and dh intros. The kids take care of all the pets. WHen they leave for college, I will have to change cat litter for the first time in all the years we have had cats! DD has 8 chickens, and the kids have 3 cats. I would have more cats if dh would let me, but they are all indoor, and it seems like there are more than three most days! We have always had 3 cats. That is dh's limit. We did tropical fish for a while, and dh had a snake before we were married. I honestly don't think being intro or extro has much bearing on number of pets.
