  1. I am not even six months from the first dose of Pfizer much less the second one. California didn’t allow everyone to get vaccine until April 15. There will likely be a whole lot of people suddenly eligible in about a month. Including me. I will be there.
  2. I accidentally messed up the brightness settings on my Fitbit a while back and it was super hard to see. Like hard to read in the dark of a movie theater hard to read. I found instructions to fix the brightness online and it is much better now. Is it possible you did the same?
  3. This is us too. My youngest is a senior this year. He was supposed to be doing community college. It was a disaster when it went all online last year. Since it is still almost all online, he is not doing it in the fall. (As a dual enroll high school kid, he has extremely late registration. He is not able to register until days before classes start.). I know about the CHSPE. We have good reasons for not having done it. His main social group was at a game store where he played dungeons and dragons. It hasn’t had in person gaming for well over a year. And is unlikely to resume in person until next year. The owner is immune compromised and very very covid cautious. She has good reason to do so. But it is hard for my kid. Little kids are not the same as big kids. They just aren’t.
  4. I checked the class schedule and you are correct that there are some classes that are in person. My student is a high school dual enrollment kid. He can’t register until very very late. I can’t imagine that there will be anything left at that point. I am glad that there will be some classes but there are so few of them….
  5. In my area the community colleges went to online classes after Spring Break in 2020. They were all online in Fall 2020 and in Spring 2021. They are going to be almost all online in the Fall of 2021 too. Our plan was to send my youngest there for part of high school and then after he graduated to start there because he doesn’t know what he wants to study and it is way way cheaper to figure that out while living at home. But he doesn’t do online asynchronous classes well. He needs to see people. He needs the interaction with the teacher. He needs the environment of students to provide the peer pressure to get the work done. And online just doesn’t provide that. I am concerned that the whole reality of college has changed to be online and my kid is going to be at a major disadvantage because of it. So are the community colleges in your area doing in person classes? Are the four year colleges? According to this there is no definite plan for when in person classes will happen. https://missioncollege.edu/gen_info/Coronavirus/phases-to-reopening.html
  6. We won’t but that is at least in part because it still feels like we haven’t left it. My husband is still working from home full time. His company says maybe in August they can go back. The community college that I would send my youngest to is still almost all online for the fall. They say maybe in the Spring for in person classes. The parks near me still have signs requiring masks and most people are still masking at the parks. The drinking fountains still don’t work. And won’t until Santa Clara County Health says they can be turned on. No one knows when that will be. The good part is we have very high vaccination rates. The case load is going up but not so much.
  7. I think the water dimension is 50 ft rather than 70 feet. The 70 feet dimension would include the concrete. At least that is my best guess.
  8. My Dad collects pocket watches and is a member of a national organization. Someone there can probably help you. At the very least they could tell you if they are worth anything. https://www.nawcc.org/
  9. If you are in Aberdeen, South Dakota then Storybook Land is fun. https://aberdeen.sd.us/242/Wylie-Park-Storybook-Land
  10. Elementary school. He was the music teacher. I was probably seven or so.
  11. I suggest making this fudge. It tastes amazing and is super easy. https://www.eaglebrand.com/recipe-detail/chocolatefudge-4139

  13. It can’t be done online due to privacy laws and kids. I copied the link below. https://collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/sat/register/special-circumstances/younger-students
  14. My 16 year old got his second dose on Friday afternoon. He had a headache on Saturday and that was about it.
  15. Can jellyfish get pneumonia? (Answer: no, they don’t have lungs) How do the zookeepers catch the ants for the anteater? (Answer: they don’t. Anteaters in zoos get pellets that look like dog food)
  16. You always have time to grab a jacket and put on your shoes when the fire alarm goes off. I learned this one in upstate New York in winter in the freshman dorms. It took a long time for the fire department to arrive and shut off the alarm. It was very very cold outside.
  17. Trig. Whatever it was that you were going to use in the app about trig.
  18. Sure. I am AnotherCrazyMom. I will send the friend part on my end. Nice to meet you.
  19. I am in the Bay Area. There are plenty of appointments at Levi Stadium starting on Sunday, April 25. Gilroy High School and the Fairgrounds both have plenty of appointments starting on Wednesday.
  20. I don’t know if it is science fiction enough but Phineas and Ferb is totally child appropriate and might work.
  21. We are on the other side because the child is no longer a teenager, but I don’t know that it is any easier. Meds helped immensely. So did therapy with someone that they chose.
  22. Since my sixteen year old recently failed his geometry test on this very topic a week and a half ago, I vote yes. He told me he was confused before the test so I wasn’t terribly surprised, but...
  23. Have you looked at aleks math? It says it goes by mastery and it would cover the necessary material. It tends to be algorithmic and some people find it extremely dull. I believe it has a free trial so you could check it out that way and see if it would work. https://www.aleks.com/
