  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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 ye
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. Workouts on YouTube? There's some great ones. Challenges like doing a certain number of pushups every day for a month?
  12. Ticket to Ride can be played online. We love that one.
  13. No, we could not quarantine for a family event. If one of us was diagnosed or even known to be exposed, then of course we would. Dh is an essential worker that cannot work from home. Though he would be given the time off if he was exposed. My kids are doing things we've deemed low risk too. Horseback riding lessons and socially distant TKD class. (Forms and weapons instead of sparring) We even meet friends outside at parks and such. Obviously, if we had concerns about being exposed, we would drop those activities for a couple weeks, but without a positive test for dh or someone in our immediat
  14. We’ve been watching this. It has a fair amount of swearing- which I have only noticed because my 6 year old will run in from another room, every. Single. Time. There is a swear word yelling “You shouldn’t watch something with swear words!” “Didn’t you hear that?!? Why are you watching that?” This is going to have to be a show for after he’s asleep. He even catches it when the word is in the background music- not even in the script! It seems to be his gift.
  15. I would assume she had a swimsuit underneath. I've been coming out of a campground bathroom after swimming at the beach and felt very awkward because between my hair covering the straps of my swimsuit and the towel, you couldn't see I was wearing anything! And believe me, I worried people were noticing. But I was covering more than my swimsuit- and I wear pretty modest swimsuits!
