  1. SAME. I find it strangely reassuring that I’m not the only one.
  2. No way. My entire childhood was dominated by my dad running his own business, which limped along, neither thriving nor dying. That meant he put in incredible hours while our electricity at home sometimes got turned off.
  3. We don't have AC. When it gets into the 90's, I wish we did. But it never stays there for long, and we get very cool in the evenings no matter the daytime temp.
  4. You totally quoted her. First sentence- “please don’t quote”
  5. The brunt of the virus takes about a week. The residual symptoms...we all still have them a week later, so I’m guessing several weeks. Ds just got off oxygen yesterday, 2 weeks post onset. But again, he’s a special case.
  6. Not really. Ds16 added Zyrtec and thought maybe it helped a little. Ds18 already takes Zyrtec. I think this is mostly just one you have to ride out. Watch out for secondary infections. Ds 16 (the otherwise heathy kid) ended up with walking pneumonia. At the same time, the kid who was hospitalized (ds18) had no infection of any kind- just really nasty viral symptoms. (((Hugs)))
  7. I really think you could have the same virus that my son had ( 3 of us have gotten it). Both of sons got a rash with it.
  8. Please don’t go. You will absolutely spread this to someone else. The virus that put my son in the hospital last week was caught at church. A baby in our church also caught it and landed in the ER. I’m sorry you’re missing Holy Week. That’s hard. (Btw, ds also had a rash)
  9. I hit check out and the kindle button pops up (in overdrive). I click that and it redirects me to Amazon, where I have just one more button to push and it gets sent to my kindle.
  10. My library’s overdrive does a direct link to amazon for kindle check-outs. It’s super easy. It’s my favorite thing about my paperwhite (well, maybe tied with being able to read in the dark). I’ll try to take some screen shots of the library stuff.
  11. It's been 10 years since we lived near Orlando, but I can only imagine there are more homeschoolers. There were a ton of groups, non-traditional private schools, and opportunities. Hopefully someone with more recent intel can help you with more specifics.
  12. A dress shop lady told me that the vast majority of brides fall in love within the first 3 dresses. So I think even when they plan to make it an all day affair, it rarely is.
  13. Suck it up, Buttercup! Said with love and sympathy. I think you should definitely go.
  14. I grew up with one and we also had one for 6 years. We LOVED, adored, cherished our pool. Missed it so much when we had to move. I’m a huge fan.
  15. Our piano lives tucked on the other side of the dining table, flanked by dog crates/beds.
