  1. My son has severe pet allergies. I wash his sheet, blankets, duvet cover weekly. I aim to vacuum his room daily with the Roomba.
  2. 1. You can't make cupcake batter in advance. They not turn out light and fluffy. 2. You do not need to refridgerate after you frost. The sugar content is so high in the frosting it will act as a presrvative for the perishable ingredients. 3. Day of/ day before, it is just personal preference. I personally prefer a cupcake the first day and always try to make them as close to serving as possible.
  3. I did 1/2 day kinder with my 1st. I said never again. I felt like I was always running around like a chicken with my head cut off and I only lived 1/2 mile from the school. As soon as I got home and started doing something it was time to go pick her up. Forget having to run an errand anywhere. IMO 1/2 day would be more disruptive to parents/kids thank 2 days on, 3 days off.
  4. iHealth No-Touch Digital Forehead Thermometer We have had it for a couple of months and it works well. My eye Dr. is using this exact one on patients. If it is good enough for a Dr's office it is good enough for me. 😉 https://wyze.com/thermometer.html
  5. My neighbor is a volunteer EMT. When my daughter broke her arm I had my son run to his house and get him. His first question was did I call 911. And then he asked multiple times. He got her situated in the car, arm braced and iced but he definitly would have wanted me to call 911 if he hadn't been there.
  6. I would absolutly do it as soon as I could. You don't know if/when office will be closed again. Their cleaning procedure right now are insnane. We went to the eye Dr. last week. They are only seeing one patient at a time (3 Dr. office). Temp check at the door, mask required. Only the patients can be in the office, one parent with minors. They wiped down the entire office when we left. Under normal circumstances there are very few people in our oral surgeons office at one time. I have never seen more than one other patient in the office at a time. (Single practice)
  7. We are moving about 2000 miles away. I am trying to plan trip from here to there and am having a hard time finding an app to do what I want. I am looking for an app that will do the following: - Start/End Point - # hours I want to drive -start/stop time each day -plan stops for the night, but allow me to easily change them and adjust the rest of my drive accordingly. With the shutdown I am trying to stay in areas that are a bit more open and not still totally locked down. -add sightseeing stops For the mostpart we are just wanting to get from point a to
  8. I always buy high end shoes. Ecco, Dansko, etc. I will usually buy from Nordstrom 1st to make sure I like them. I take them home and wear them in the house for a few days. Then, I buy them on sale at Nordstrom Rack, Amazon, Shoe Buy, Zappos etc. I got some really cute Dansko sandals last year in August for like $30.
  9. He said he thought schools would open in the fall but that they might have to close several times during the year. He has not given any solid criteria for moving to the next phase. It is just "We are not there yet." Personally, from what I saw yesterday extending the lockdown is only going to make things worse. I went to Fred Meyer yesterday and it was like Christmas Eve and New Years combinded. Every checkstand open with 3-4 people waiting in line with carts overflowing with stuff. the govenor would open up some other stores people wouldn't be crammed packed into the 2 h
  10. I had a uterine ablation in my early 40's. Best. Thing. Ever.
  11. Nope. No way no how. He is not going to allow any gatherings of any sort all summer. July 6th is the absolute earliest by his timeline., but I have no doubts he will drag it out as long as he can.
  12. Please, please do not wait. My son went from totally fine to sick overnight. We waited a day to go in. They said we caught it early and he would be in and out. The dr came out after surgery and said he was very, very sick and we would be there 1-2 weeks. Long story short he was in the hospital for 7 days.
  13. i don't think most college could afford to cancel classes altogether. I know my daughters college desperatly needs to have students on campus. They are a research school. All of their money is made from research. Not having students on campus to do that research is costing them dearly. Along that same lines schools can't afford to lower tuition for online classes either. Their costs are pretty much the same if they are online or on campus. Yes heat, electricity ect is cheaper but the cost to be online is higher too. They also have to continue maintaining dorms and buildings that no one
  14. Yes you become super sensitive to the sun. You will burn just thinking about going outside. One of the things I did the 2nd time was timed it so that it was late fall/winter while I was taking it. Living in Seattle there is no sun that time of year so I really did not need to wear sunscreen often.
