  1. If I was cognitively impaired to a level where I would not be able to care for a child, I would hope that the people who cared for me would care enough to prevent me from becoming pregnant.
  2. We met at church. What is kinda funny about it is that he never would have gone to my church because we had a female pastor on staff, except that his ex (who was trying hard to not be an ex anymore) told him he should try it because we were doing the 40 Days of Purpose Bible study. The ex lived in a different state. So, he comes by to check it out, but he has a female friend visiting from out of town that weekend, so she was with him. I was a very polite and welcoming to both of them. The next week, he came alone, but I didn’t talk to him because I had seen him with his friend before. My sister hadn’t seen him the first weekend, and the second weekend she was like “Who was that hot guy and why weren’t you talking to him?!?!” Eventually he showed up alone enough times that I talked to him. After we finally went out, we were engaged and married fairly quickly. sorry if I wasn’t very clear. It’s the middle of the night and I can’t sleep.
  3. Around here, the fast food places are closing early or opening late or closing on Sundays because they can’t get people. I drove through Arby’s the other day and there was a flyer in my bag saying they were offering a sign on bonus and if you stayed 3 months, you got another bonus. (Not a big bonus- but I bet they have never offered that before!)
  4. Well, someone who lives in the house my parents used to live in got a letter addressed to me. I haven’t lived in that state or had my maiden name for 16 years. They wanted me for jury duty. If the people living there now didn’t know our family, I never would have known. They gave the letter to my sister, who opened it, took a picture and texted it to me. (I told her to) The letter stated that not receiving the letter was not a good enough reason to not respond?!?!? Google, Apple, and Target may know me pretty well- but the government is not keeping up very well.
  5. We don’t use it, but my in-laws have this really strange habit of referring to their female dog as both he and she. Like, sometimes they use he and sometimes she. I have always found it to be extremely weird.
  6. Thanks for the ideas. They are helping me think this through. I also have a 10 year old and a 6 year old that I am homeschooling too. Right now, the plan is to send them to school next year. Not only would I rather the kids all be doing the same thing, but I am *exhausted* from dealing with the oldest and I just am not up to homeschooling anymore.
  7. He has not generally been compliant with doing online school. We tried Calvert for awhile, but he would just pretend to do the reading and bs his way the assignments.
  8. Also, I AM worried about suicide. While I don’t think it’s an immediate concern, I am afraid of it becoming a concern. There are a lot of mental health issues in my family.
  9. We have appointments lined up with therapists and a psychiatrist. But the psych can’t see us until May. If he doesn’t do school, I don’t know how to keep him busy during the day. All he wants to do is play video games. If we don’t allow that, he will just sit, sometimes rereading the few books he’ll read. He refuses to do anything except youth group at church. Which is positive, but it’s only on Sunday and Wednesday.
  10. I need advice. Please be kind. I homeschooled my 13 yo boy until this year. He was refusing to do any work and we were fighting so much over school, that I made the decision to send him to school this year. He has always been depressed and anxious but the school year started off okay. Not great, but okay. They were hybrid for a long time, only attending in person 2 times a week. They have recently gone to 4 days a week. My son started pretending to be sick to get out of going. Then he gave up pretending and just flat out refused to go. (He’s also refusing to go to TKD which he has loved for years) Our doc referred us to a partial hospitalization program and he went to that for a week and a half. They discharged him on Friday. Well, it’s Monday and he is refusing to go to school again. I have NO idea what to do. He knows if he doesn’t go, he doesn’t get electronics, which is the only thing he cares about. But he’s still refusing to go. It’s not completely a behavior thing- he does have significant depression/anxiety which we are attempting to medicate. But it is partially refusing to even try. I have no idea what to do. Anyone have suggestions?
  11. I'm another with nothing but sympathy. Mine is diagnosed with all kinds of things ADHD, ODD, every kind of anxiety you can have. You're not alone.
  12. I would choose by itinerary, BUT if I was taking a kid who would want to stay on the ship, I would choose by amenities. If, when you get off the ship, you're just doing beaches, it wouldn't matter to me where the beaches are. I like excursions! I've only gone on Royal Caribbean so I can't compare.
  13. I have Pioneer Woman stuff and I LOVE it. It's bright and beautiful. I think that things you have to have and use all the time should be something you like to look at.
  14. Workouts on YouTube? There's some great ones. Challenges like doing a certain number of pushups every day for a month?
  15. Ticket to Ride can be played online. We love that one.
