  1. the surface isn't changed at all...and there are no small white heads... but I have been trying to come up with am adjective to describe the pain...and the best one is a burning sensation...not like a burn where it hurts all of the time...no matter what you do...but it comes and goes really fast...so fast that I can't figure out if the pain is on the outside or the inside of my finger...it's really just weird.
  2. no, not any abnormal amounts anyway...
  3. I have this weird little bump on my middle finger of my right hand.....right by the first joint. It's not red or inflamed. But it does hurt some. Not a ton...but enough to bother me. I can't quite bend my finger fully without stiffness or pain. Let me describe the pain though, because it's weird too...it's not a shooting pain or an intense pain...more of an annoyance pain...if that makes sense. The pain is on the inside of my finger...not surface. But it hurts when I bend my finger fully or if something pushes down on in...like putting my blue jeans on for example...if my finger gets in between my body and the jeans, it hurts... I don't want to go to the doctor for a silly little bump...so can you help me diagnose? It's not a big bump...at all...in fact unless I told you it was there, you wouldn't notice it even if you looked at my finger. thanks.
  4. I did not know that until now...I am so surprised...but very relieved. THANK YOU so much to all of you who responded to this...I feel so much better now.
  5. I agree that my daughter's education was better than my own, however, are the college expectations higher than when I went to college? That is a real concern for me too. Plus, she has never gone through "final's week" like other kids...so when that hits in college...will she be overwhelmed by the whole idea? I just worry too much maybe?
  6. As I am compiling my daughter's final transcript as the final thing for her college entrance, I am very aware of her grades. I would not say she is super studious or an over achiever by any means, but her grades are mostly A's...not because she aced everything the first time around, but because as homeschoolers, I make my kids do, redo, and redo again if needed until they get things done correctly. I clearly know that in a public school that is not the way things are done...and now I am feeling a bit guilty because, are my children's grades not as accurate as they would be if I adopted the "public school way" ? And, I also wonder if they actually retained what they once learned...but I also know that could very easily be the same in public school. Her ACT test scores are not super high...they are ok...but not excellent. (if they would test over History her score would be higher :) ) So, I guess I am wondering, is this "normal" for a homeschooling mom to be thinking/feeling this way...and if not...how do I deal with this within my own self. thanks for your thoughts on this subject! I appreciate it greatly.

  8. Has anybody here used this program with high schoolers with success? I have 2 boys, one is a freshman and one is a Junior....both need some help with math...not major help...but help. So I was just curious if anybody here has had success with the program. Thanks.
  9. I am thinking about getting a laminating machine for the library, (I am the librarian) but I don't know enough about them to know what I might want. If anybody here has one, can you please give me some specs that I might want to consider. It doesn't have to be super big...maybe 13-17 inches wide, but I want it to use the rolls, not the pouches so I am not limited to the length I want to cover. I have a board meeting tonight, so I want to bring some ideas to the meeting. Thanks so much!
  10. good....at least it's not just me then....thanks.
  11. why is it that I can access facebook from my phone while I can't from my desktop. I am using the same internet service for both. It worked yesterday no problem. Is it a facebook thing or my computer? and if it' my computer, how can I fix it? thanks.
  12. so like at Wal-mart unless you bring your own bags, they will have to buy them? Or is this more for the little specialty stores? I remember this being a thing when we visited Washington DC..so I know it's out there...
  13. these are great....keep the ideas coming!!!!!!!!!
  14. My niece and her fiance are visiting us for Easter this year and we wanted to give them an Easter Basket. They are graduating college in May and moving to Austin Texas so he can go to grad school. They are also getting married this spring. I didn't want to burden them with an actual Easter Basket because I am sure they will want to streamline their belongings for moving, but I need some sort of practical, but fun container. But then also, I want to find some fun contents to put in there as well. We are not made of money so the contents can't be expensive...I have already thought of food...snack stuff...but looking for some other ideas that they would like. thanks for your help!
  15. so, do you use the foot patches every day.....forever...or is there a time when you just get to maintaining...or what exactly? I found them on Amazon for $15 for 10 patches (or 5 days)...so that would end up be very expensive long term...is there a better place to buy them? thanks.
  16. I am looking into a heavy metal detox...and there are so many options available...and I have no idea where to start or what method is good. So if you have done this and have some experience and recommendations, please share. I am looking for an option for my daughter who has a corn allergies, so many things that can be taken orally she can't have...so that is why I am also looking at the foot pad idea...but I don't want to spend money on a scam either. Also, if you would, what are the "side effects" of a detox...what should we expect to happen? Thanks.
  17. guess it doesn't hurt to try it, right? Thanks for the suggestion.
  18. I believe it is set to high accuracy. Both wifi and data are turned on. I did message tech support...havent' heard back...I also searched you tube for videos...I learned some new things...but nothing about my issue...thanks Lanny...I figured you would chime in at some point...guess we will keep playing with it...or trying new apps...or something.
  19. why do you think Find a Friend will be any different since both Life 360 and Google maps didn't work? Not saying that it won't...just wondering why it might work.
  20. I sent them a message...but they didn't respond...so I guess now I will have to wait until Monday.
  21. Now that he connected to WiFi... He showed up on both apps. But the fact that it takes wifi to work defeats the whole purpose of us wanting that app on his phone.
  22. Samsung Galaxy J3 Luna pro
  23. As was recommended on this board, we put Life 360 on our cell phones when we bought our daughter a phone. After a bit of tinkering we got it to work. So now we just got a phone (different brand and a less expensive one too).... For our son. The 360 app doesn't seem to work unless he is connected to WiFi. He had his locator, data and wifi on... But it still doesn't work. He is on a band trip this weekend so I also thought I would use Google maps share location as a back up... But that didn't work either. Can someone please tell me what we are doing wrong or why his phone doesn't work with either one of these? Thanks.
  24. I must not have explained myself very well...this is simply a time where kids play regular BINGO and when they get 5 in a row, or 4 corners or blackout, they get to pick a book from the table. And then we go on until the next kids does the same thing. I was just looking for a way to jazz it up a bit...I just don't know how. It's a game that is supposed to last 30 minutes or so...maybe 45. then we are done. thanks.
  25. I am the librarian of a small library and every year in conjunction with our town's Easter Egg hunt, the library offers a book BINGO afterward. This year I wanted to try and come up with Book BINGO with a twist (to change it up and make it more exciting)...but I can't seem to find a twist...can any of you creative moms help me? In case you don't know what a book BINGO is, basically it's playing BINGO and when you get a BINGO you get to pick a book from the table of books that we purchased. So if any of you have any ideas for me...please share!! Thanks. The ages for this is probably about grade 4 or 5 on down. (mostly 2nd and 3rd graders) thanks.
