  1. I've sold a car and a Peg baby stroller. That's it. I'm about to use it again within the next couple of days to sell some more baby stuff.
  2. I can't tell the difference between the FedEx truck and the UPS truck and since we live in a neighborhood I tune out the trucks because who knows who it might be for. :) If I knew it were most likely to be for our house then I would be more alert for it.
  3. :iagree: Strongly agree! LOL! I love these threads when we are just having fun like this. :) Excellent! :leaving: toy tea owner who shares the brewing fun with sweetie :)
  4. I came up consistently ENFJ. It claims that type is only something like 3% of the population. I know they called it the teacher type and I really resonated with the descriptions. That was fascinating. Thank you. I just got my husband to take it and he came up as ENTP. His was amazing. Reading his description was as if someone knew him all his life and wrote it only about him! It was nearly freaky.
  5. It sounds to me like you are still on target, still a bit ahead in many areas and moving ahead well. No worries! What's amazing is that you have been through what you have and are still in such good shape. Good going :)
  6. I've bought Charmin Ultra for years and love it. A couple of weeks ago we discovered this house we've leased-with-option-to-buy is a septic tank! Yuck! I would never have guessed this great neighborhood was on tanks! HUGE affect on whether we decide to buy at the end of this. So...now we use Angel Soft and I really don't like it but it's "best" for septic tanks.
  7. I completely agree. I have found this place an easy place to ask thoughts and opinions on (I know some others disagree). However I would really like to ask a vaccinations question that should be straight forward bur I'm ultra concerned about the responses of those that might not even be in the neighborhood of my thoughts. You know what I mean? I'd like to ask a question of those that believe in "pink" but those that believe in "purple" might attack to bring me to "their side". :) I'm glad to be a homeschool board dweller. I tried a mommy board for a while when I was pregnant and newborn wi
  8. Oh my goodness! You are most definitely NOT alone! That's the #1 thing I think my guys do best. That and bring it up 10 seconds later to be sure you haven't changed your mind. I'm trying to figure out how to balance not treating them like the toddler that needs to just learn to obey and the young men who can talk and reason. "Because I told you so" is unfair to their age but when is it that I keep crossing the line into lawyer/argumentative and I going bonkers?! Just so you know, you are not alone. :)
  9. WAY before having children I was a teacher in a preschool. (After that it's amazing I had children! Maybe that's why it was so long after teaching there) Anyway, we had a 2 1/2 year old that had bit the children since he was walking. He was a nightmare! My happiest days were the days he didn't come to school. It was just terrible and absolutely nothing the parents or we did had any effect. One day he, his sister and their dad was in the living room of their house and Alex (the boy) took a chomp out of his sister. Out of spontaneous reaction the dad grabbed the boy and BIT him back! That
  10. Yep, we are back to the upper 60s and lower 70s with rain every few days. I wonder if we'll get another cold spell before the season is over. (cold spell = highs in the upper 40s or lower 50s) I'm afraid I'm happy for you to keep your ice. I lived in it for about 4 years and it was about 4 years too long. :)
  11. In my experience of libraries is that it would totally depend on your library. When we began homeschooling we lived in North Carolina. The library was absolutely invaluable! It was wonderful. We couldn't live without it. We couldn't homeschool without it. Now, however, it's completely the opposite. Our local library is old, the book are outdated or irrelevent and the children's room is almost an afterthought at best and the workers are rude and just don't care. As an example, they have almost none of the recommended books for SOTW 3. It's just wretched and outdated.
  12. Yes, best ever for us as well! I do not like 3D so we saw it in plain theater and it was still absolutely incredible. I must see it again before it leaves the theaters. :)
  13. I haven't read any of the other responses but I know what I'm doing. My youngest of the oldest two is 8 years older than the 3 year old. I'm keeping the things I've "tried and trued" because I KNOW that I'll use them. Well, I know as much as I can but ultimately we'll see when we get there. I wouldn't want to try and put back together things that might be out of print by the time we get that age. I've actually saved most of the things for kindergarten and the grammar years even though I didn't know there would be a 3rd boy. However, I have SO much I do need to get rid of. :)
  14. I'm about half way finished with Gulliver's Travels. I hope to be finished by Monday which is when I plan to start my next book. I haven't decided what to read next though. I believe it will be something light.
