  1. Focused bunny: funny! It's not that money is terribly tight -- I'm just trying to be a smarter shopper all around. I should have added that my babies just turned 16. But I can tell that they're still up for the fun of eggs, candy etc. I took the lazy way: I was at Costco and saw a huge thing of jelly bellies (one boys favorite) and a huge thing of M & Ms (other kid's favorite) and bought both. Also, when they were four, I bought HUGE baskets at Good Will, spray painted them a chocolate color and added yellow ribbon. We use the same baskets every year. I also bought clean grass. And we have Easter!! Thank you!! Alley p.s. adding that Michaels didn't have much at all.
  2. I can't spend a fortune. I'm trying to smart. I can easily get to Michael's, Kroger or Walmart. (I know that Michael's gives a homeschool discount.) Which do you think is cheapest? Or would you go somewhere else? Thank you so much!! Updating: I should have added that my babies just turned 16.

  3. Maybe. . . I wasn't aware of an annoying scent or anything. I'm usually fine w/ perfumes, flowers, sprays etc. We all had a set of ear buds to listen to the audio with. I'm not aware of ever having gotten motion sick. That's usually DH who can't go on roller coasters or rides that spin anymore. Or he gets sick. I might too, but I stay off of those rides.
  4. The four of us took an audio tour of a Vanderbilt mansion in Asheville, NC over the weekend. The audio tour was about 1.5 hours long. Within 15 mins. of starting I felt physically ill -- as if I hadn't eaten enough breakfast and I was having low blood sugar. That's all my brain could figure. I sat down as often as the tour allowed. I had no food in my purse. Anyway, once the tour was done one of my boys said that he felt faint and nauseas through the entire tour. He had told his brother, "grab me if I start to faint." I had felt faint too. I couldn't believe it: we both felt ill from the audio tour. Afterwards we ate and we're fine the rest of the trip. Do you know what might have happened? TIA! Alley
  5. I love visiting DC. My first suggestion is that you stay in Alexandria. Old Towne Alexandria is really cute and safe. There's a super easy station to access Metro in Alexandria that will deposit you easily to any museum you want to see. Their Metro is phenomenal. Here's a good place to start looking for hotels: https://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotels-g30226-Alexandria_Virginia-Hotels.html The many fees are my only worry about rental homes -- you can still save a ton, but just know up front every single possible fee involved w/ that particular home. I love helping re: creating a trip -- let me know if you want other ideas. Alley

    And Michael's give a homeschool discount!
  7. If your kids are ten and under -- LEGOLAND, Florida or California. (There are eight around the world.) Btw, older LEGO-fanatics will love it too. The theme park was purposely built w/ pink-knuckle rides only -- it's a theme park just for elementary kids. And kids love it. So do the adults, again especially if you have LEGO-lovers. If you want more into, pm me and I'll share the whole 9 yards!! 👍 Have fun! Alley
  8. Sending hugs and I want add "have your own back." I love the words you've been given -- they're really good. Alley
  9. Thank you so much Selkie! You made me tear up. I just believe how long this has hung on. And, yes, I'm really down. Thank you for sending encouragement -- I needed it big-time! Alley
  10. Hi Everyone, Yes, I got the shot, but the kids and I both came down w/ a flu anyhow. At this point I'm bored, but still feel blah. I'm also really blue -- which isn't something normal for me. I've watched Mrs. Maisel -- 5 stars!! Also Grace & Frankie -- also love!! Kimmie Schmidt too. The first season was cute. Do have you have any suggestions? We have Netflix and Amazon Prime. TIA! Alley
  11. I have to wear shoes that are good to my feet too. Every summer for the last ten years I've worn Keen's -- I always get the closed-toe style. Also, mine last ten years at a time. I've only bought two pairs and I wear them constantly. Before I wore keens, I loved my Tevas sandals. I adore these shoes, but the older I get the more I want to keep my toes protected. (Although not sure that's necessary.) Alley
  12. How fancy is the occasion? White House Black Market has beautiful dresses. Alley
  13. This is what I was going to say. I do this every summer. I put an older bra that I don't care much about under my rash guard. It's very comfortable.
  14. Can you help me find it? I want to buy one for my good friend's bday!! Alley
  15. I just want to encourage you to take this really seriously. In mid-40s every cold I had turned into a nasal infection or bronchitis. I was just like you in how I handled it. Annoyed that it went on so long. I've later learned that serious infections can wreak havoc with your health. I won't bore you w/ details, but do not take this lightly. I'm 54 now and get colds that are just colds, so whatever happened w/ infections stopped happening. But please take this seriously and jump right on it, Alley
