  1. Sending lots of positive thoughts. My mom, dad, and grandmother had cataract surgery with no problems whatsoever. My former-nurse mother was very excited that they gave her a video of the procedure. My dad…not so much. 😊
  2. I am so happy that you found a better work situation. That is incredible! Ecstatic to hear that the adoption continues to move forward.
  3. Still sending healing thoughts to your sister and thinking of your family.
  4. So many congratulations!!
  5. So very sorry I talk to the trees and Jann. That’s terrible
  6. Would a face shield help him feel better?
  7. If they do divorce and he wants it, he should try for 50/50 custody. Many states prefer 50/50 but many dads don’t ask for it.
  8. ((((TexasPround)))) It’s so very hard. I’m sorry.
  9. So very sorry for your loss.
  10. We have quite a few preschools in WA state as well. I’m trying to find an outdoor half-day kindergarten that meets five days a week, but no luck yet. Maybe COVID will change that.
  11. I sent my son to outdoor nature preschool three days a week for three hours last year. It is fully outdoors, the kids are masked, they space the kids out when they eat unmasked, and my area has very high vaccination rates. It’s pretty much the only thing I feel comfortable sending him to now and my daughter starts this year as well.
  12. My church group did this when I was a teenager. I was a shy kid, the fact that my mom was “in on it”, and there was three strangers in my home at 5 in the morning totally overwhelmed my ability to say no. I do not recollect the experience fondly. At all.
  13. Please vent as much as you need. So sorry for your losses
  14. Orphan Island has a female author and protagonist. There are no adults and a mysterious boat takes the kids away when they are thirteen and leaves a young one. I don’t think there’s anything triggering. The girl bucks the system and stays on the island when the boat comes to get her. It’s a metaphor for adulthood. The ending is ambiguous which could be frustrating for some.
  15. Cloud Atlas is one of my favorite movies. (and books). It’s not always happy, in fact it has a lot of dark elements to it but it’s overall message is one of hope. favorite quotes: Haskell Moore: No matter what you do it will never amount to anything more than a single drop in a limitless ocean. Adam Ewing: What is an ocean but a multitude of drops? Sonmi-451: Our lives are not our own, we are bound to others, past and present. And by each crime and every kindness, we birth our future.
  16. I’m sorry Jenny. What a crap morning. Hope things get better today.
  17. Well, since gay marriage was a long time coming that wouldn’t have worked for much of our community. I wouldn’t worry too much about my children having premarital sex with their respective partners as long as they understood that there’s a certain vulnerability to sex in general. Females who engage with males often have the possibility of becoming pregnant. All variations of partners have the possibility of sexually transmitted diseases. And in many cases, there is emotional vulnerability. I’d worry about my kids choosing a partner that doesn’t value them and weaponizes sex in some way.
  18. This is so devastating. Some of those villages are almost entirely gone. Hoping more people are found and rescued.
  19. Interesting idea. Thank you!
  20. That’s great information. Thanks!
  21. That’s true as far as the job market is concerned. I actually have a waiting list for my tutoring business so I don’t lack clients. I was just looking for more techniques to increase the success for certain students. You’re probably right about the price of a third degree though 😊
  22. I've only seen it offers as a Masters program.
