  1. Dd just called me. She had just gotten the call that her summer internship got cancelled. It is in an "essential" business so we thought it may still go on. The thing that is most upsetting is that this was an internship that she was going to be doing along with her final two senior courses. Assuming all went well with the internship, she was too be hired full time as soon as it was over. She'd been in close contact with this company for months about future plans. Dd is just crushed. (And I am also). She had a new apartment lined up and everything. Not sure what's going to happen now.
  2. I just looked online at one of our local Mexican restaurants, and even their menu says, "cheese dip" so I guess most people do say cheese... Must be more common than I thought 😀.
  3. I'm in the deep south.... I'd say about half the time I hear "queso" and the other half of the time "cheese dip". Everyone knows what is being talked about with either term. I am trying to think about it and I think I personally call it queso most of the time, but I am sure I've also said cheese dip.
  4. My kids attend a small private school. I doubt their plan would be feasible with a larger school, and I very much acknowledge the privilege involved. But the plan is in motion to have school as close to normal as possible. Teachers will do live online classes at the same times as their normal schedules. So the will go through their normal daily schedule, just online at home instead of at the school. This will be the case for all core classes. Electives, other than required ones like foreign language, are being "put on hold" for the time being. This is supposed to all start on Thursday, so it's yet to be seen how it will play out in practise. We shall see.
  5. Thanks all! She's definitely a woman in terms of body/development. I ordered the ones that @Pen linked above. She's low in iron and there's other issues going on as well that will be monitored with blood work so we'll hopefully be able to keep up with it.
  6. This makes sense and low iron is one of the reasons we need to start them.
  7. I need to get a multivitamin for my 16yo dd. I think I've decided on the Thorne brand (but could still be talked into something else). But it doesn't look like they have formula specifically for teens. All I'm seeing is children's, women's, and men's. For all of you with vitamin expertise, would it be better to go with women's (what I'm inclined to do), or would she still need children's?
  8. I've been thinking about you and that precious baby all day. I am heartbroken to hear of his passing. I'm so very sorry for your loss.
  9. Thinking of you and Grant and hoping you got some rest last night.
  10. I had chicken pox as a child (no vax). I haven't had shingles. I'll turn 50 in a little less than two years and plan to get the shingles vax then. Dh also had cp but no shingles. He'll get shingles vax in a couple of months All of my kids had the chicken pox vax. None have gotten chicken pox. But my son got shingles when he was 9. It was awful. I just remember I was so mad at the pediatrician because he just acted like it was great because he got to see this case as he had been hearing of chicken pox vaxed kids getting shingles but had not seen it yet. Here was my son in terrible pain and he was acting all giddy. But anyway, this was about 8 years ago. Ds was always healthy before shingles and has been healthy ever since, but that was an awful 3 weeks.
