  1. We were all set to get started, but our state just went back to a limit of 25 people for indoor and outdoor events.
  2. Thank you! DD12 was supposed to compete on an IEA team this year, but ..... COVID. This subscription may be a great gift for her!!!
  3. Coffee books yarn (for crocheting) cats flip flops
  4. I was lazy and didn’t do anything yesterday, so I walked 2 miles today. Back on track!!!
  5. I am so sorry. I will definitely pray for Ri and for all of you.
  6. Vitamins, Cat food, cat litter, and contacts for me are what I have stocked up on lately. Things I will probably start stocking up on: Toilet paper, Disinfecting wipes, jars of marinara sauce, meat for the freezer (we don't have a ton of freezer space, though), snacks for the kids, and I always stock up on the sodas everyone likes when they are on sale.
  7. I have a Micke and love it. But I am a fairly small adult. It wouldn't work for someone over 5'6", I'd say. The top is fairly small, also. It's really not quite enough space for me, but we have a weird-shaped room, so we had to get something small to squeeze in.
  8. I'm in! I may even sign up to do one of the virtual challenges.
  9. All right, I'll pick up some wet food to try. Can I do a combo? I mean, I know I have to gradually change the food over. Could we work towards wet food only first thing in the morning and then a mix of wet and dry the rest of the day? I've never used wet food, so I don't really know how it works!!!
  10. No diarrhea. I haaaaate wet food, but at this point, I'm willing to try anything. Also, we have another cat, so whatever we do for one, we pretty much have to do for the other.
  11. Background: 5 year old indoor short-hair cat. She has always been a vomiter. We have done the slow feeding mat (which I learned about here), she gets 6 small meals a day, changed foods (probably 6 different dry foods, including 2 prescription ones), done bloodwork (normal), and done a fecal exam (normal). She still vomits - most of the time, it's right after she eats her first meal of the day, no matter how small that meal is. What else can we try? I am so over cleaning up cat puke.
  12. Spaghetti Tacos White Chicken Chili Pizza Grilled Chicken Salad
  13. We have one from Champion and it's been fine. We live in a hurricane area, so we wanted to have one. We have only used it a couple of times, but it's been pretty straightforward to use.
  14. When SWB posted that article the other day, it really helped me put into words how I've been feeling lately. I have always struggled with anxiety, but now I think I'm adding depression into the mix. DH and I talked today and we have some really practical plans to hopefully help me navigate this.
  15. We really like the ones from Old Navy. I wash them in the washing machine, and air dry them.
  16. I’m in SE Virginia. I go between: - Eh, a Category 1 hurricane? That’s it? No big deal. I mean, it can’t be worse than the rest of this year. and - #!*!?!? Seriously, 2020? Are you kidding me? Gotta bring in all the outside stuff. Stock up on milk and bread! What I really want to do is crawl under the covers and not come out until 2021.
  17. It's fairly new, so there aren't a ton of reviews yet. My kids are older than yours, but my impression of the curriculum is that it really can be what you want it to be. There are activities/crafts and there are tons of books recommended. You get full booklist once you purchase. Only the spines are listed in the sample. But really, you can choose if you wanted to do more activities, or more videos (lots of clickable links included), or read more picture books.
  18. I saw a guy wearing one the other day - I don't know much about face shields, but I'm pretty sure his was too small for his head. The band seemed to be secured in the appropriate place on his head, but the bottom of the shield barely came below his mouth.
  19. We will be using it this year in conjunction with Build Your Library Level 5. Some of the books overlap. ROV is definitely a huge wall of text to sort through. I just printed it yesterday and I'm diving in this week.
  20. Great experiences here so far. I think a HUGE pro is the fact that a mom could do a telemedicine appt for her or a kid without having to drag alllll the kids to a germy doctors office. Also, I can go to my counseling appt even if I have a sick kid.
  21. We have a local movie theater called Cinema Cafe - watch a move and eat dinner. So at home, about every other week, we have been watching a movie and having pizza delivered. We NEVER eat in the living room, so the kids think it's the greatest thing in the world!!!
  22. Changed up a few things ............ History of the Horse from Beautiful Feet Math: CLE 7 Typing: TGTB Science: Elemental Science's Earth Science and Astronomy for the Logic Stage with a few friends mini-co-op style Together: Blossom and Root's A River of Voices and BYL 5 for American History Caesar's English from RFWP - probably all of us together The Art of Argument (with 9th grader) Fix-it Grammar - The Nose Tree (None of the kids have done any Fix-it Grammar, so we are starting here and doing it together)
  23. Not sure how old your DS is, but my kids have been loving the America's Test Kitchen Kids Cookbook. HERE This is the cookbook and there is also a baking one. My 12 year old LOVES to pick out her own recipes. I buy the ingredients and she is able to do the entire thing herself.
  24. OK, I did a few things today. Brain dumped onto a piece of paper. Made a list of allll the curriculum we are using - still need to divide everything out by which kid is using what. Made a list of books I'm still looking for - made a specific wish list on Thriftbooks and Amazon for them. I'm also going to a huge used bookstore next week. Printed my planning forms. Cleaned out my Mom Binder. Made an appointment with my organizer friend for her to come over and help me get the homeschool room in order. So basically .... I got ready to start planning 😅😅
