  1. That is very exciting! You'll have to share details.
  2. There is the sensi mist which is unscented. The regular one has a terrible scent for sure! I personally can't do Flonase because it gives me bad headaches which I don't normally ever get. I have to use Nasacort instead. But the Nasacort gives my DH bad headaches and he had to switch to Flonase.
  3. I tip 20% at the nail salon, hair salon, and dining out. If I get bad service at a restaurant I will deduct some.
  4. See I feel better when I go to bed and lay flat. It feels like all the pressure is off of my ears for some reason. I'm not having trouble breathing out of my nose so it's not an issue to lay flat, but I know for some it can make things worse. Are you taking regular Allegra, or is it Allegra D?
  5. I'm 3 months with the ETD and it is NOT FUN! I wondered why some days were better and some so bad, so out of curiosity I found POLLEN.COM and can tell when the pollen count is high, my ears are so much worse. Things that help are chewing gum, Vick's Vapor Rub behind my ears and Sudafed.
  6. I had bad allergies as a kid and teen, but they were much better since getting older. I don't usually ever have to take anything. This year though has been so different! The only symptoms I have are watery eyes (not itchy) and the Eustachian tube dysfunction which causes my ears to feel really full and uncomfortable. I'm currently taking NASACORT and Sudafed from behind the pharmacy counter to get relief because I can't take my ears feeling so awful. So I was just wondering if others are more bothered this year compared to past years?
  7. My allergist suggested using Afrin for 3 days 20 mins prior to then using NASACORT or Flonase. It helps open things up so the steroid can actually get in the nasal passages to start working. He said to do it for 3 days only and then 10 days later do it again for 3 days.
  8. Some REALLY great suggestions! Thanks to all of you that took the time to give such detailed suggestions. I really appreciate it. 🙂
  9. But again, not asking if anyone thinks homeschooling would be a good fit for this family, or what your opinions are etc.. It was only what free or inexpensive homeschooling options are out there. I realize that it can be really hard for some to not give their input or opinions on everything.
  10. Wow! I can't even bring myself to read all of this honestly. First off, she's not single. Her and her spouse work varied schedules so there would be short amounts of time her son would be alone 2 days per week.. A sitter is there the other 3 days but is not being paid to homeschool a child. She's there mainly for the two younger girls. They have limited time so I didn't want to recommend anything that's too hands on and intensive. I was in a hurry when I posted and didn't have time to go into a ton of detail about their personal situation. I just wanted inexpensive or free recommendations to get them started to see if it's something that may work for their family. Thank you anyway!
  11. Yes, it is legal to leave a 9 year old home alone. Also, I was not asking for opinions on if you think this is alright to do.
  12. She has but thought he may enjoy homeschooling and learn more. The PS just are not good in the city she lives in. He is made fun of and just hates being at PS so much. There will be a babysitter that's watching the two younger girls a couple days, but I don't know how much attention she will be able to give him with school. It's a difficult situation for sure.
