  1. This has been a requirement of ASU for a long time for homeschoolers. Honestly, they aren't that special of a college; find another college that doesn't treat homeschoolers like second class cierzens.
  2. We use a credit union and I guess I will call them and see if I can set up an account that is not linked to my other accounts.
  3. The fees on an account where I only keep a few dollars to keep EBay happy are not worth it for the profit I'd make selling. I don't know too much about online banks and how they are, though. This is what I meant by an alternative solution.
  4. There seemed to be no limits in EBay's TOS as to what they could deduct from my account. I am very uncomfortable with that and won't continue to sell if I can't find an alternate solution. I think I would just donate items or take a loss on another site if I can't come up with something else.
  5. So EBay recently revised their policy so that sellers must provide their birthdate, last 4 of social security number, and a bank account routing number. EBay is not processing payments through PayPal anymore and is depositing payments directly in bank accounts. They are also asking for permission to deduct "all fees and charges" directly from my bank account. I am not comfortable giving EBay unfettered permission to access my bank account. Have any of you worked around this and if so how have you gone about it?
  6. I included math and foreign language that my kids did prior to 9th grade on their transcript. My DD was admitted to several colleges with top scholarships with that method.
  7. Saxon has teacher videos, teacher manual, and publisher's exams with answer key. My DD transitioned to Saxon math from public school curriculum in middle school and the transition went smoothly.
  8. Well, I was just going to post this, but you said it better!
  9. Same experience for me, except my fateful flyer had already made its way to the trash when I fished it out from on top of the other stuff in the garbage that day!
  10. I'm enthusiastically fully vaccinated. I will not get a booster if the mask mandates and mandatory shutdowns continue, however. I want something in return besides risk for my willingness to stick out my arm, and death/hospitalization has been mitigated with these first 2 doses. Many people I talk to have expressed the same, although many others will happily go for the 3rd jab regardless. So hesitancy may be a matter of "why bother", rather than an unwillingness to deal with side effects.
  11. Baked Fish with Tomatoes Total Time: 25 minutes Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 15 MInutes Servings: 4 Ingredients: 1 lb cod fish fillet 2 tablespoons butter 1/2 cup onion, finely chopped 1/2 cup green pepper, finely chopped 1 tablespoon flour 1 teaspoon brown sugar 1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme 1 (15 ounce) can diced tomatoes with juice salt and pepper Directions: 1 Preheat your over to 400 degrees. 2 Spray a baking dish with non-stick spray. 3 Melt butter in a pan over medium heat. 4 Add onion and pepper and saute until softened. 5 Stir in flour, brown sugar, herbs, salt and pepper to taste, and combine well. 6 Gradually stir in tomatoes with juice. 7 Bring sauce to a boil. 8 Keep stirring until sauce has slightly thickened. 9 Place fish fillets in baking dish and top with the sauce. 10 Place dish in oven and bake for 12-15 minutes or until fish is cooked through and flakes easily.
  12. If they are going to be pallbearers for the funeral, then I think a suit would be appropriate (my 16 y.o. son wore a suit for his grandfather's funeral where he was a pallbearer). Otherwise, I think a sport coat and pants are fine.
  13. I agree with you and would have handled those situations the same way you did. I don't think you can fix this, however; your daughters are just going to have to experience life a bit longer and learn to chill. It gets tiring playing victim all the time and perhaps they'll come to their senses sooner rather than later.
  14. You and your husband may have to divide and conquer the post-delivery work; that's what we did when I had my C-sections, because we had no family nearby at all. That meant I was on my own while he went to work, except for the few days he took off immediately after I got home. Heavy chores, grocery shopping, etc had to wait for him to be home. For the delivery, I would hire a college student well in advance, with good references, of course.
  15. My DD was admitted to all colleges she applied to with 3.5 years of Latin.
