  1. Exciting news here! My dd (child number 3), who is only 16, wanted to graduate early and start college. She's been working really hard. She applied to one school - the one I'm attending for my PhD - and GOT ACCEPTED! This college is just about perfect for her and it will be fun to run into her around campus! She didn't apply to any others because we have no money. This way she can live at home and attend college, which is better anyway considering her age (she's not as independent as somebody's child upthread). I don't want to say the name of the school because this is where we live - sorry. It's a flagship state school. If I can manage to finish in 4 more years, we could graduate the same weekend! She wants to major in Germanic studies and learn older Germanic languages. She is planning on grad school also. I guess applying for one college is pretty common. If she hadn't gotten in, she had been working on a plan B of homeschooling college, I think. And the twin stuff twins are only 9, but that scares me. The complications and expenses of twins never go away, do they?
  2. Wow! Got 20 likes on a post. I feel clever, oh so clever...

  3. It's funny this old thread got bumped, because the last time I talked to mil, guess what?! She brought up Brain Gym ***AGAIN*** and told me how beneficial it would be for all my dc, and we could just do a little every day, yadda yadda yadda. Good to know nothing has changed in 2.5 years!
  4. Will we ever all be well again?!

      awww...get well!



  5. Just tired of seeing the old status.

  6. Forget a ban on guns - I just want a ban on mentioning them on Facebook!

  7. I agree with how that sounded - $600 is a lot of money to me, believe me! However, when tuition, fees, and room and board at my son's college averages $35K a year, $1200 is a drop in the bucket.
  8. I did this while a student; my son does this gives you pocket money. At my son's school, you can work 20 hrs per week max only during the semester, and he gets paid just under $9 an hour. That's only $600 per semester.
  9. Happy New Year (a few hours in advance though)! :)

  10. You stole 205 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 205 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!

  11. If your calves are really, really tight, buy a roller. I got mine for $20 from my physical therapy place. It looks like this: After I used it every time I sat down for about a week and a half, my foot pain was gone and I was able to walk without pain for the first time in MONTHS! You just roll your calves on it to stretch them out.
