  1. Some REALLY great suggestions! Thanks to all of you that took the time to give such detailed suggestions. I really appreciate it. 🙂
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. This is for someone else that is interested in homeschooling her 9 year old son. He is very mild on the autism spectrum and somewhat behind on writing skills etc.. He will be home alone some and online programs will work well for him as he loves technology. I wanted to give her some ideas of super cheap curriculum. She is a working mom over 50 hours per week and on a fixed income. Thanks for any input or suggestions you might offer. ETA: He loves his iPad and Youtube!
  7. Is there one toxic thing you just can't give up? I'm doing really good in this area EXCEPT for shower cleaning. I've tried baking soda, vinegar, Thieves from YL, dish soap, Simple Green etc.. and I just can't get anything to clean that shower grime like Scrubbing Bubbles. I wear a mask to spray it and then leave it for 30 mins or so and go back and clean it with my mask on. I'm sure this isn't helping much but I just can't find a good natural shower cleaner.
  8. I have a very open kitchen and living area so I stored all my kitchen gadgets in a Pottery Barn armoire that I put some wire shelves in. You would not believe all the things that fit in that thing and it's so organized. Extra baking pans, serving bowls, food processor, griddle, cake stands, mason jars, platters, crockpots, panini press and more. I love that thing!
  9. I love having a large one of these turning lazy Susans in my upper cabinet next to stove for storing bottles of different things (oils, extracts etc...) and I really love it. Purchased from The Container Store.
  10. So my allergist called me tonight and said no signs of food allergy. He thinks it's because the frozen yogurt is so cold and that can have an affect on the Eustachian tubes. I hate how long it lasts when the tubes get swollen again.
  11. Y'all may remember that I was diagnosed with Eustachian Tube Dysfunction several weeks ago. Anyway, I noticed today after eating a lot of frozen yogurt my ears got that really full feeling and discomfort. They've been this way for a few hours now. I just don't know what is going on with me. I have drank tons of milk my whole life and ate this yogurt for years (it's my favorite frozen yogurt place). I'm now realizing that I've felt my worst after eating this yogurt the last couple months. I gave up drinking glasses of milk each day once I was diagnosed with ETD because I wasn't sure if that could be causing it. I've been having 2 T of heavy cream in my coffee in the mornings with no issue. I've got a call into my allergist (seen him twice the last few weeks). Just not sure if my hay fever allergies are causing the ETD, and the yogurt aggravates it, or is my ETD caused by dairy. It's just so weird. Does anyone else deal with ear fullness and discomfort?
  12. After reading this thread I feel very blessed! I could not coexist with what many of you are describing OMG!
  13. In the fall stink bugs try to get in but if I keep the screens sealed off they don't.
  14. Yes, the Flonase Sensimist is what I'm using too.
  15. Yep, another sinus/allergy related thread from me. 🙂 The Nasacort doesn't cause any issues but today I switched over to the Flonase and had major headaches and sinus pain. Now I'm thinking the Flonase could have been causing some of my problems a couple weeks ago. Could just be a coincidence but I don't think so now. What nasal spray do you prefer for allergy season? I bought some XCLEAR today at the health food store and will try it tomorrow.

  17. I LOVE decorating! I spend so much time looking at IG and blogs. I can take an old piece of furniture that looks so ugly and make it pretty with paint etc... I love mixing fabrics and displaying shelves and walls with pretty things. It's really a passion of mine.
  18. We replaced ours just a few months ago and it was $6,900 for a new heating and AC system.
  19. How long does it take the oral sprays to start working good? Ear fullness and behind my eyes is my biggest issue. No sneezing or runny nose.
  20. I know there are several options out there so just curious. I've tried Zyrtec and Claritin so far.
  21. She's not eliminating soy because she's never reacted to it. She will carry an epi pen though from now on.
