  1. Don't even think twice about it. DO. IT.

    I've been getting the lunches for my kids. My kids are homeschooled, but the district has made it clear that the lunches are for ALL kids. When I was going through a depressive episode a couple of months ago, picking up the lunches helped so much.

    DO IT.

    My friend is a IEA coach and they did do some competing.  This year has been so hard on her and her business due to shut downs, ever changing rules, etc.  ......so we get away and go hiking.

    We were all set to get started, but our state just went back to a limit of 25 people for indoor and outdoor events.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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!!!

  6. Just now, Paige said:

    You could try switching to wet food if you haven't and give her a probiotic supplement like FortiFlora, but there's plenty of options. My foster cat had some vomiting issues and the fortiflora helped a lot. I use it because it's given to me by the rescue but I gave my own cat a different kind. Does she have any diarrhea? 

    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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

    Here's what I have planned for 7th grade DD next year:

    Literature/History/Writing: The History of the Horse from Beautiful Feet. DD is a horse-lover and she is SO excited about this.

    Science: Elemental Science's Earth Science and Astronomy for the Logic Stage

    Math: Finishing TT 7 now and then she'll probably do Math Mammoth 7.

    Together:

    Caesar's English from RFWP - probably all of us together

    The Art of Argument (with 9th grader)

    Story of the World 3 (with 5th 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)

    5th grade DD will be doing a Harry Potter Unity Study, so 7th grader will probably join in on some of those activities!!!!

    Extras:

    Typing - Maybe TGTB?

    Computer Coding of some sort

    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)

    Got a lot of this done!!! I am feeling so ready to start the year. 

    Still need to pick out recipes ds can learn to do. 

    Few more field trips to plan- found a cool spot but need to figure out how to the get there. 

    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.
