I recline

We have two recliners in our family room. One of them is mine, mine, mine. My computer sits beside it, and I almost always immediately kick my feet up when I sit down, and leave it that way until I...

I actually enjoyed

"Unwind" although it was very dark. I did not like the sequels nearly as much. Would I let my children read it at 14? Probably. It's very thought provoking, though.

Spoilers ahead, for...

How many Christmas movies

can there be? I don't get the Hallmark Channel (or any cable, right now) Do they play the same movies over and over?

Sorry to hear you're missing Jessica Fletcher, although I wouldn't want...

A pulse oximeter

is a real medical device. The OP is concerned about her oxygen levels. A pulse oximeter should allay her concerns. Most people will not be adversely affected by wearing a mask.

1. Buy an pulse oximeter. It can tell you if you have oxygen deprivation by measuring your blood oxygen levels at various times during the day, with mask and without mask, etc.

2. Get a...

I think Netflix had

an "Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library" movie. It was made by Nickelodeon, and the reviews say it is awful in comparison to the movie. (Which is a lesson you might want your kids to learn,...

Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library

I think your 4th graders would love this as a read aloud. Part mystery, part puzzle solving, lots of good lessons on teamwork and friendship and highly entertaining.

I wonder

how many people were at the women's marches all over the country on Saturday? Probably more than 10,000.

We use a google home

which is very similar.

How we use it:

What's the weather like today?
Turn on/off certain lights. (My daughter just rewired every light switch in her house to be smart lights)
Turn on/off...

Oh, I hate those

we had those when we lived in Massachusetts. I think they came with the house. We've never had them anyplace else, we got them in a bag of flour or rice. Somehow they laid eggs in our rice, and I...

My husband asked me

several times about the plant possibly being the source of our infestation. I kept insisting that there were no fruit flies flying around the plant. I felt really stupid when I finally gave in and...

Are you using dual monitors? I use my Mac monitor to view the students so it looks like I'm looking at them most of the time, and put my visuals on the second monitor.

Do you have house plants

in the area? I fought a fruit fly infestation for months, did everything. Finally put the plant outside and solved the mystery.

I got a full sized keyboard plugged into my laptop via USB. (actually, I would have bought one, but my husband happened to have an extra he could loan me). That way, the laptop is elevated on a...

Dear Parents

1. Please turn off the television during school. How in the heck do you think they're going to concentrate with "Frozen" on in the background?

2. Don't allow your child to be eating during...

I learned to drive stick

on a Peugeot 504 that my Dad bought when we lived overseas. When we came back, it was the car we were allowed to drive, if we could. ;)

The first car my husband and I bought was a 1973 Honda...

So if we don't like what a person has to say

we tell them their opinions are not welcome? Why wouldn't a teacher board be the place to discuss appropriate protocols for schools for COVID or any other disease?

How about

giving her more to do. Free yourself up to do those exciting things that are time intensive by giving her the repetitive tasks. Or have her do those things which are time intensive.

For example,...

It's a tough situation indeed

But I can't imagine any circumstances where I would toss my 90 year old mother out. I'm sorry. Not even COVID justifies that, in my opinion. It would be too heartless.

I might, though,...

I'm sorry

this is not the complication you needed right now. I hope it gets resolved fast so you can be with your SO. Hope the testing goes well and they can resolve what is causing his strokes.

Our daughter

Not in my district
