The Wind!

The wind was really wild here and we briefly lost power multiple times. Lots of trees and branches and other debris around. I think it's past us now.

The brand is Asics.

I love reading and I'm reading more slowly now. Before the pandemic I binge read books when I had time and then might not find time to read again for a few weeks. Now I can read more slowly and not...

No foresight

So many districts didn't think ahead before we let out for the summer!
This teacher is likely going to have to redo some of his/her work. Like the pp said, he/she will learn that not everyone has a...

A big NOPE from me

Will the people who think this is a good idea agree to livestream themselves all day long, too? I think it's a terrible idea and we'll start to see lawsuits pretty quickly. Mommy9298, I'm pretty sure...

I feel ya'

You are not alone, I definitely feel the same way. I write out my thoughts every now and then to try to clear my head but I don't go back and read what I wrote in the past because I think it will be...

Pretty illogical

It sounds like your school needs to rethink things from the students' perspective and rebuild the schedule in a more logical sequence. Someone likely started by looking at adult schedules and got...

I like it, it makes sense

I honestly think it's a good idea for your population. My DGD is going into kindergarten this year and she would do better with this schedule than trying to do multiple subjects each day. I would at...

Odd little house

The bathroom is so bizarre! How do you get to the toilet? Do you inch your way sideways along the wall? Do you climb through the bathtub? I want to know!

Pool care

During the early fall we empty about 20% of the water in the pool by putting in a hose leading to the street. This is because the water expands when it freezes. Then we put a cover over it and hang...

I'm glad to hear you came up at the right time, even if you don't quite qualify for a new kitchen yet.

Honor your off-duty time

Don't answer emails after hours. It can be really hard sometimes, but wait until you're at work again. Those concerns can sit, trust me. Nothing ruins a night like a back-and-forth with a negative...

Teachers are still teaching

I've seen a few that say that they'll be doing distance learning and then ask for advice about curriculum. I keep wanting to point out that the teachers will be providing that!

The visual certainly makes it real. We are living in some dystopian novel.

I could be wrong, but I think that being a 'friend' on Venmo will just make it easier for her to pay you. I don't think there's anything social about it, at least not that I've ever noticed. I...

It's too contagious and too unpredicatable

So now I want to know how many children and babies have tested positive in other areas, including my own. How can we make decisions about opening schools when we don't know this number? Even if...

Pop in and drop out

My son asks why I answer people on FB. I explained that I like to drop a thought-provoking or fact-laden comment and then leave. I rarely actually get into the confrontations, I just want the...

Returning carts

I wonder if teachers return shopping carts more than the overall population? We tend to be rule followers and since we must model self-control and good behavior all the time (even when what we'd...

Aw, so sorry

So sorry. Our furry guys mean so much to us, but I've been guilty of letting them suffer too long and I still feel bad and selfish. You did what was right for Mason and he was well loved!

Big event cancellations

Yesterday (or the day before?) Philadelphia canceled two very big events, their Thanksgiving Day parade and the Mummers Parade, which is held on January 1st. They decided that there will be no big...

I really like it

I would love to live there! It's very, very different from where I live now but I like it. The one thing I would have to do is remove some furniture from every room because I don't like clutter.

Listen to us

I'd love to see a letter-writing or other campaign by teachers. We are the key to making any version of school work this year and we've been largely shut out of the conversation.
