Happy Saturday!  I slept in a little bit today, just until shortly before 9am.   The guy came over to fix the roof from what was leaking just after 9.  Looks like it was a problem due to the skylight.  

We are joining a gym right near dd's TKD so we can drag ds there whenever dd is at TKD, which is 3-4 days a week.  He's putting on too much weight and doesn't get enough exercise, so hopefully this will help.  We ran by there today for dd and dh to see the place and ask some questions and then couldn't sign up because I forgot I needed to have bank account numbers not just a debit card.  So I did my membership online and I'll bring ds on Monday and do his.  Ds is actually going to get the big membership that allows guests, I'm getting a cheaper membership that doesn't, and dh will be ds's guest when he comes.  Dd wouldn't go too much anyway, but they won't allow her until she's 13.    I hope this works out for all of us.  

Then I ran to Target because dd's shirt got wet at the science center yesterday and she was standing there in her cami/sports bra style bra and I realized she was still wearing a kid's size and she really needed bigger ones.  She thought they were fine but they weren't staying where they were supposed to be.   And I decided I was going to buy all new nice underwear and get rid of all the old, stretched out, frayed stuff.   

Then I went to BJ's for science center stuff and a few things for home.  

Then I set up a subscribe & save order for paper towels on Amazon.  I try to use hand towels when I can but I still go through a TON of  paper towels.   Amazon is slightly cheaper than any place else.  

Can anyone give me a good reason for paper towel pricing and sizes?    There's the Regular roll, then the Big roll, and the Mega roll, and the Super roll, the Double roll,  the Gigantic roll, the Huge roll and the Triple Roll.   And the big ones relate to the Regular rolls in all different ways that aren't even nice round numbers but things like 1.83 times the regular roll and the pricing is all over the place.   I expect things to be a little goofy trying to price compare between brands but that's ALL ONE BRAND.  I can't even stand there in the grocery store looking at the packages, looking at the unit prices and figure out what the best deal is.  It's ridiculous!

You know, saying "ignore this thread" to this group is like saying "don't push the big red button!" 

Homeschoolers.     They always think the rules don't apply to them.

Daddy update:  Yesterday, the doctors decided to put in a trach and a feeding tube. He's been intubated for 7 days. The longest they can keep you intubated is 14 days. After that, the risk of infecti

Ok. This is the first time I dared to venture into this thread because of course it says, "IGNORE!" But I can't! So someone please explain this thread's purpose to me and if I'm REALLY supposed to ignore it. 😀

Welcome!

The thread started out as something else and then the person had her question answered and changed the title to Ignore This Thread.  There are *ahem* some people who can't follow the rules and refused to ignore.  It has morphed over the three years! that it's been going.  Now it is basically a group of homeschoolers who check in every day (or so) and we've become good friends.  We post about whatever is going on in our lives, whether it relates to homeschool or not.

Everyone is welcome, although we do have a couple of rules.  The main rule is that this is A Happy Place where no one puts anyone else down.  :)

Me too!

Welcome!  

So another thing is that we often award "thank you trophies" to say congratulations or good job.

Haikus, poetry, and musical numbers are encouraged.

Also there is a strict rule against ITTers dying.

Thanks! I didn't want to intrude but when I saw the post about a macaw possibly being good eating, I couldn't stop laughing! We eat our share of wild game but that's one I haven't heard of.... And now I have! 😂

Very good introduction, Junie,

And yes, Servant, you are more than welcome to stay and play. We are always happy for new people to stop by.

Also, we put Booya at the top of every page. People who are wrong but Booyah. You don't want to be wrong, do you?

-Original Booya Babe

Boueauyaient I think would be the proper French spelling...

I had to do this tonight, too. Captain had an accident while on our bed. Blech! 

my kids do not understand that bedtime means sleep, not come into my room every 15 mins until midnight! 

If you keep a squirt gun by your bed and just continue to shoot them every time they try to come in then eventually they will stop.

Good Morning!

Happy Sunday!

Somehow my headache found me again while I was sleeping.  😞  Not sure if I'll make it to church.  I might have to settle for First Baptist Church of the Livestream again.

Apologies to all of the Astros fans here.  I am rooting for the Nationals all the way.

I rooted hard for your team a few years ago.  Gotta love Orbit (probably the best mascot in baseball), Altuve, and Verlander.

But, I'm hoping that DC gets a World Series trophy this time!  Baby Shark!

 

ETA:  Booyah!!

How long are you going to keep me in suspense? I'm not about to sift through 3,000ish posts to find the answer. 😀

The Island is our personal and private retreat.  If anyone on ITT (Ignore this Tread) is having a bad or difficult day, someone usually calls Rocco (the Cabana boy who is always neatly dressed in pressed shorts and a spiffy polo) to fire up the chopper (one of many forms or transportation) and transport said ITTer to the Island. There are many options for recovery from a lounge chair on the beach where Rocco ( and his brother Roderigo) will give you a foot massage and pedicure whole bringing you tropical drinks (of your choice) with little umbrellas in them.  There’s also the lodge on the Island with a wrap around porch and Adirondack chairs and a huge stone fireplace inside where you can sip hot chocolate or tea and read a book and be cozy. Critter, our resident ITT author and artist, has a gallery there. Swen is our pastry chef, fully trained in Denmark....  we have a tremendous staff.

Good morning!

Praying for your head, Junie!

I’m between morning service and Sunday school. Our class is on a series on aging and end-of-life decisions. Oy veh. Very informative and helpful, though. 

Which reminds me, if you are so inclined, can you pray for FIL - his broken shoulder will take a good 2 months to heal (I am guessing longer) and he relied heavily on his arms to help him with basic mobility because he has very poor balance.  

Coffee!

Love the picture Bookie!  

Happy Sunday.  It's a plan classes, do laundry, maybe straighten a few things up day.   So what have I accomplished so far now that it's almost noon?  Put some clothes away that had been sitting around since last week since I need the basket, washed dishes, and read a bunch of posts on TWTM forums.   Sooooo productive.  

Still to go - that actual class planning, school planning for my kids, and all the laundry.  And maybe the straightening.  And a trip to the science center because I still haven't cleaned up from my workshop Friday and I need to figure out how to set up pendulums when I don't think the ceiling supports will support them.

Ok. You can all laugh at me now. I JUST figured out what that little number beside my name is because I did a little investigating this morning when I realized that number somehow doubled literally overnight.

ITT does that.

I konmaried my closet between church and driving ds14 to The Big City for youth orchestra rehearsal. I think I got rid of at least half of what was in there. The girls are making good progress on their seasonal clothing change-out. 

Now I have 2-1/2 hours to read and/or nap in the van.

I am back from church. We had a guest speaker. He was good. Long sermon and a little hard to follow at times,  but he had a lot of good points.

 DH is boarding now. 

Oakland is getting creamed by Green Bay.😱😢 Poor Derek.

It was foggy this morning. I don’t know what that’s all about. It never gets foggy here in October.

I always pictured Rocco in a loin cloth with little English skills.

It's BOOYA! 

#noh

Svengo. That is NOT Rocco. I should know, I made him up.🤣 Rocco is very clean cut, he is Italian, so he has an accent, but his English is perfect.

I skipped Sunday School this morning and was able to knock down my headache.  I went to church and sang in the choir.  :)

One lady at church told me afterward that I looked "glowing and radiant" and wanted to know what my secret was.  Um, I'd like to know, too, actually.  😉
