  1. This; we used to foster kittens, there is kitten formula commercially available.
  2. Good morning! Online speech therapy for three kids is the first order of the day today. Gets our week off to a running start.
  3. Just seeing this this morning Scarlett. Praying for your family.
  4. Sure thing! And the Bransons, Cooks, Dawsons, Edwards, Franks, Garrets, Hansons, Isons, Johnsons, and Krafts. 😁
  5. Good morning. We are going to church at noon. Our group's turn this week--last names A-K.
  6. I learned it when living in Guatemala as a kid. Not for human trafficking but for people one paid to help one cross the border illegally.
  7. I got up, then I went back to bed because bed is warm and my house is not. I should get dressed.
  8. Chick fil a breakfast sounds like it was well-earned!
  9. I'm going to bed. Wasn't super productive today but the kids all got fed.
  10. It is so good to see you again Julie! Thanks for the update ❤️
  11. What a lovely tribute. I'm glad you had a loving and generous woman in your life. Let those tears flow, they sound appropriate and cathartic. (((Hugs)))
  12. I went to the dentist today because my sensitive tooth was getting worse. Turns out it had a crack and now I have a temporary crown.
  13. I do have veggies go bad but I'd rather have veggies sometimes go bad than eat fewer fresh veggies because we don't have them on hand. I don't teach my kids to always finish everything on their plate either; extra food going into our bodies when we are not hungry just becomes a different kind of problem and ultimately can result in "wasted" health. I try to teach my kids to listen to their own bodies and stop eating when they are no longer hungry.
  14. It makes me so happy when I can do this! I made black bean soup last night and didn't realize until this morning that there was some left out in the pot all night. I was sad not to be able to eat it myself but happy I could feed it to the chickens.
  15. It really is. Unfortunately there are still a lot of mask refusers here, and covid-severity-deniers. Even my dentist's office wasn't having everyone mask when we were there one month ago--the dentist and hygienists wore masks but the front office staff didn't and they weren't encouraging patients to mask. I had to go back today and this time everyone had masks and there was a sign on the door requesting that patients wear masks. I'm trying to walk a line between caution and isolation. I figure if my family always wear the best quality masks we can manage we at least ought to end up w
  16. I'm in that group, it was amazing to see people come together and share stories.
  17. As far as the theology question, my take is more "we are supposed to have challenges here on earth, God intends that as a way for us to learn through our struggles and through helping carry the burdens of other people's struggles". While I don't claim that every person or every family faces objectively equal struggles, when you get to know a person or a family well you discover that they do all have struggles in life--serious and challenging ones. My kids are a lot like yours--lots of ADHD, dyslexia, sensory issues, anxiety; many, many cumulative years of speech therapy. They are my crew
  18. No mask mandate for the state. The studio owner will not mandate or even encourage masks. They have worked with me to create some private lessons just for my family, but there is no way to replicate the blackbelt class.
  19. https://easternppeimports.com/ I buy from this company; these seem legitimate, though I have no way of 100% verifying that anything is what it says it is.
  20. N95's are available here: https://easternppeimports.com/ No washable mask can do what disposable respirator masks do because they can't retain an electrostatic charge. This video explains why the charge is important:
  21. My family likes these KN95s; there is a $15 off discount until the end up the month with the code HALLOWEEN https://yuli-co.com/products/kn95-face-mask?variant=31694785478754
