  1. My personal behavior would stay close to what it is but my desire for my state would be to open up. We've been floating on fake money and it's drying up. I would want our economy and schools to open. Five years is too long to do this. We would have a generation of seriously under-educated kids. I'm in CA. We're still living with pretty heavy restrictions. Tons, TONS of businesses are closing. The economic consequences are just starting to be unveiled. It's going to be bad. The academic/mental health consequences are already becoming quite evident. If we did this for 5 years, I don't even
  2. Lol, about the temp range. I was just talking with someone about the pool we had when we lived in Florida and I said something about our solar heating and she looked at me funny and was like, “why would you need to heat the pool in that weather?” And all I could do was shrug and say, “we were pretty cold sensitive when we lived there.”
  3. I could go for a blackout starting now.
  4. I'm in the bluest of blue states and still receiving a countless amount of texts and calls. Once again, I can't wait for effing election season to be over.

Totally leak proof and they come in a variety of sizes. Worth the cost. ETA: the 10 piece on this one is a terrific price. I just picked one up for my
  6. I have had an extremely adversarial summer with Ds's special ed director, so I'm in a bit of a fighting mood. I would first, as others have said, look over the documents and make sure that's all good. I would then give her a call to talk about it. I would probably start off nice and say something like, "Hey, I just wanted to touch base with you. When DS came home he shared that you seemed annoyed with me. Unfortunately, without the camera on, I have no idea what your non-verbal reactions were to what I was saying, but it was enough that ds felt very uncomfortable." and I'd go from there. She'd
  7. I use natural instincts because semi permanent looks less dramatic at the root line as it grows out. I hate getting that skunk line that comes with permanent. Semi doesn’t completely wash out so you end up with an ombré look at the roots. I’ve used natural instincts for at least 8 years. It’s good stuff.
  8. I’ve heard of hs groups like that (on here) but have never experienced one irl. You would definitely be welcome to the local Christian hs group (which already has Catholic participants).
  9. I don’t think you started the exodus but there has definitely been one.
  10. We did Quiplash on Jackbox tv over zoom. It requires a device for each person plus a device to zoom over, but it's a lot of fun. It can be a little saucy but it's super funny.
  11. 🤔 I'm not sure what I said to warrant this comment? It sounds like Brightspace is an LMS. I'm sure there's a million different kinds out there.
  12. It's wild to me that you haven't encountered these. The 2 colleges I have attended in the last 4 years (and my kids' high school) have had online platforms, even for in-person classes. It's a place to see your grades, retrieve files, receive communication, etc. My current school uses iLearn. My previous school and the high school use Canvas. How does your university handle communication with students?
  13. Can you access weekly testing? I know not every place is like where I live but I’m in healthcare and can get tested weekly. In one sense, your dh is right in that you will be overexposed, even compared to most healthcare workers. In the other sense, I don’t think quitting or forever distancing are reasonable options. He can’t make you quit and you can’t make him be ok with your exposure, so it sounds like you’re going to have to live with the distancing for as long as he needs you to.
  14. Online has been a mixed bag for me. I have one class that has a rock star instructor who is so thorough. She does multiple small group discussions in addition to her recorded lectures and really holds our feet to the fire. I’m learning a ton. I have another class and the instructor is lazy, only has prerecorded lectures, and we’re basically having to teach ourselves. These instructors would probably be the same in person but being online really turns up the volume.
