  1. Ohhhhhhhhhh! She was trying to tell you how badass you are -- and you're trying to refute her point. Sorry, I think she's right: you're amazing. So, my next question would be: why is it so hard to think really well of yourself? Alley
  2. What I'm wondering was: what was her point? Does she want a certain outcome? Alley
  3. I'm wondering the same thing as Arcadia. Just a thought, but can he take community college classes in September? My two are 16 and really came into their own when they started doing junior college last Sept. Alley
  4. Hi Ottakee! We don't drink, gamble or like raunchy/adult things either. In fact, I don't think I've ever even bought one drink on the four I've been on. There are some myths out there about cruising. We've done Disney twice: it's super kid-friendly. So is Royal Caribbean and they're cheaper than Disney. I'm wondering if group cruising is out there for special needs adults. Here's what Royal does for people w/ Autism -- although I don't know what your kids are living with: Here's an article by Cruise Critic talking about cruising for those w/ disabilities. Thought I should add: I don't work for the cruise industry. 🙂 Good luck! Alley
  5. There's something called price parity in cruising which basically means everyone is selling cruise for the same price, but entities like AAA or Costco include added value into their packages. If you're a Costco member, I'd book a cruise through them. There are huge savings to be had. Alley
  6. I listened to the podcast called The Dropout -- about Elizabeth Holmes who fooled everyone into thinking that her machine "with one drop of blood" was going to revolutionize blood drawing. But it was all just wishful thing. It's an amazing story -- I highly recommend it. Alley
  7. I don't have MS -- something different -- but the Wahs Protocol has been hands down the best thing I've done. I'm so glad I found it. My heart goes out to you both. Understand that you need time to adjust, deal w/ the stages of grief (denial, bargaining, anger, depression, finally a certain type of acceptance). I have a friend who's high powered, super active husband was diagnosed w/ it about eight years ago. Albeit they don't have kids, but man, he's super proactive in going outside of the box to deal w/ his MS. (His latest love: he bought NormaTec devices for his leg thinking they help). Also, what state are you in? Hang in there -- MS is do-able. (And you're not alone, we're all here). Alley
  8. I'd seriously check Costco -- they have rain, snow, and regular boots. Alley
  9. I have twin annoying teenagers. They're 16 now and I've finally figured out how to ignore them when they're being teenagey -- and put on my favorite podcasts. I have several. They really help. The main thing: I remind myself practically daily that the babies/kids who were really bonded to the mom, have to pull away the hardest or they won't become truly functional, wonderful adults. It's heartbreaking, but our sweet, darling little caterpillars are becoming butterflies. Alley
  10. Hi Everyone, I'm trying to find Costco members who booked a cruise through them for an article I'm writing. I'd be happy to use a fake name if you don't want your real name out there. Thanks, Alley
  11. Can I come to your house for Christmas? Sounds fun!
  12. Being dumb, never mind. I'm so sorry for your dh.
  13. Thank you so much -- I really, really appreciate it. It makes me think of that old quote, "If you need something done, give it to a homeschool parent." Ok, I changed it a little but I'm so right! 😂 Alley
  14. You guys are THE BEST! I love homeschooling parents so much. Thank you for commenting! Alley
  15. I know! When I saw horror stories, I've heard about so many tragedies that could have been avoided if someone knew to read, read, read on the destination. I really believe that knowing a ton in advance makes for a better trip. Thank! Alley
