  1. You are a fountain of wisdom and information! I appreciated your posts here when I started homeschooling in, hmmm, 2007. I still love it when I see you list a bunch of great books for somebody, and I think, there's Lori D!
  2. Your kids have just as much right to use the spots as anyone else does! If you and they can tolerate masks and wash your hands, just go enjoy the library. I wish ours would open.
  3. We're having burgers, hot dogs, and s'mores. Also Greek salad, which is chopped cherry tomatoes, cucumber, red onion, black olives, and feta cheese with Gazebo Greek dressing. We usually have all the siblings and nieces and nephews over, but not this year. I'm sad about that.
  4. I'll tell you, but let's agree to disagree: Extremely high survival rate No one high risk at home Masks are not law Other reasons Even so, I'll keep 6 feet away from others in public. If I'm around a masked person, I kind of assume he's afraid of me. But I respect his freedom to choose it. It's nice if I'm respected, too.
  5. If none of the neighbors know each other, it makes sense that he wants to meet and discuss a plan before (or in case) you need one. Why presuppose he's of a certain mindset? Wouldn't neighbors and strangers usually give each other the benefit of the doubt? Why does it need to be reported to some authority when there are no known details of anything in the letter? If you don't want to meet, then just don't.
  6. We've used t-shirt sleeves, around the neck like an infinity scarf, then just pulled up over the nose when we want the mask.
  7. Oh, wait, baby and toddler! Just model and practice. 😄
  8. Not sure how old your children are. Ours still need reminding, but there's definitely been improvement since they were younger. So far, the person working from home uses earplugs to help block out noise. No one's allowed in his work room. Over the years, I've modeled quiet voice and stopped the loud one to make him or her practice speaking more quietly. One major problem we've had is someone walking into the room talking, even though there is a conversation in progress already. We call it "making announcements" and I call it out, then make the announcer wait till a break in t
  9. Oh sorry! I just realized you gave answers already!
  10. Questions! 🤗 Can you overlap these? Do they each follow and give credit for all purchases, or do they accept certain categories? Do you report particular purchases through particular apps? Thank you!
  11. I think it would be like that for me too. Thank you!
  12. Thank you, everyone! I knew you would know all about it. I didn't even realize they worked on a desktop, which will be much better for me than using my phone.
  13. I'm wondering if anyone has a recommendation or not. I've seen ads for ibotta and Rakuten, but are they worth the effort? Thanks!
  14. We had reserved rooms in a timeshare. The code we were given didn't open the door to our unit. The office was closed. Three phone numbers were listed on the door as after-hours contacts. No one answered or returned our calls. We spent the first night of that vacation in the parking lot in our car.
  15. I have to stay near a bathroom on day 1 and/or 2. My legs get weak and shaky. I get cramps, dizzy spells, and headaches. I develop some kind of sensory issue so I use earplugs when I'm dealing with noisy kids. The cramps and bleeding have gotten much worse as I've had children, but the other problems have developed in recent years. I definitely reduce my speed, shorten my chore list, and take a nap if possible. So no...You're not the only one who struggles.
