  1. We have so many parents at my daughter's school who are screaming to not have to wear masks any more and basically have the school operate like its 2019. Do these people live in some sort of altered reality? Honestly, I might not be able to keep my daughter there if they listen to people like this.
  2. Well the other shoe dropped. Turns out they were fighting me, just behind my back. Got a call from the director of Special Education today that they needed to place him elsewhere, was told her phone has been ringing off the hook and they brought in a behaviorist. When I called the principal later to ream her out, she claimed that they had only just called today. Yeah right, so how did a behaviorist come watch him so fast? We know nothing happens fast with this stuff. I think they freaked out after his first bad day, and from what I've been able to tell over the last few days, they can't get ou
  3. You ever have a hard time getting your shower clean no matter how hard you scrub? Re-caulking works miracles. Also, taking the door entirely off of the shower and taking it apart to clean it helps, too.
  4. Fingers crossed for you. Offer still stands if this one doesn't work out.
  5. Congratulations to your son! That is a lot of hard work!
  6. Thats how I feel about project management jobs. I liked my boss. I liked my coworkers. I got a lot of praise and was told I was good at it. I was bored stiff. My manager is quitting the company. She is burned out from having too much put on her shoulders and fighting for good. No idea who I will get as a manager, but at least some of the worst options just got shuffled around so they will be staying there for awhile.
  7. First week of school was a little rough. He's learning routines and day 1 was super extra. Like, can count on one hand the number of days like that he has had in his life. He's nervous and not sleeping well and it's resulting in him acting out. I think we need to find a way to help with sleep apnea. We suspected it and went to ENT to have his adenoids and tonsils looked at, ENT punted to a sleep study that we had to wait 6 months for and cost thousands, and then we got the results back which determined he did indeed have sleep apnea, cause unknown. Then COVID happened, couldn't get in for
  8. I didn't care for the zombie episode. I just think the genre is tired and overdone.
  9. End of Sunday and the dining room is definitely more full with boxes, and my kids are mostly down to the bare minimum of clothes that they could live out of a suitcase and just their bed linens. Our room is close, as well. This leaves the bathrooms, the laundry room (30% done), kitchen, and the bonus room/office to pack. We are taking 3 days off work this week to pack and finish up the project list. If we do well, we might be back at work on Friday (not holding my breath). My husband painted one pantry door before we realized it didn't look very good. So we decided to patch and paint our old d
  10. I'm actually rethinking the formal living. It may need to be the playroom for a few more years. The biggest issue is the dog eating everything. We may need to put up some baby gates to keep her out.
  11. So my daughter had back to school orientation today. This little turd sitting in front of her had his mask off the entire time the teacher was talking. Then as we were leaving he had it down below his nose and she just walked right up to him and pulled it over his nose and said there you go. She is my new hero.
  12. I hear you. The temptation to light it all on fire is strong. I'm making a Goodwill run tomorrow and my entire trunk (its a wagon) and one back seat is filled. Some people finally took this freaking board monstrosity off my porch after trying to give it away for 2 weeks, and finally found someone to buy the cargo hitch box I've been wanting to sell since we no longer have a car with a hitch. (I had to get a roof box this summer for our summer travel and it was an ordeal because there is a shortage.) While cleaning out the garage I was reminded that our Boomer parents have dumped some "ant
  13. I have never even had 1 night away from my kids. Their grandparents suck.
  14. It definitely enabled us to do some things that would've been a struggle. Greater focus on therapy for my son because we had a more flexible schedule. Saved a bunch of money on childcare. I think we are going to have to figure out a summer camp solution for my oldest next summer. I'm not sure the little guy will be ready for that environment by then but maybe.
  15. School starts Wednesday. My kids are making me nuts. My daughter is surly and has an attitude about everything, and my son won't stop talking about Terraria. Please someone else take them for a few hours, we are all tired of each other after 18 months.
  16. Yeah with thie market it makes it harder to make a leap to the next level. We did that almost 8 years ago, and we almost doubled what we paid for this house compared to what we sold for. That old house has now almost doubled again in value, but this one has more than doubled and you can't enter this price level now without equity or a trust fund. Fortunately we actually aren't upgrading much. I don't think this house will sell for what we paid for the new one but it'll be close (within 10-15%). Can you get a storage unit for all the basement stuff? I normally hate paying for those but it sound
  17. Oh if I lived on the Gulf Coast I would absolutely do a stilted house. There are actually a few houses out here in a river valley that have the foundation rising out of the ground and I think they must use it as storage or a garage. I mean sure park your car in there and gtfo when you evacuate. Or just store things you don't care about there. No one has a basement in western Washington because of the water table.
  18. I am tired of nation building, too. I would rather use our military for targeted air strikes instead of boots-on-ground occupation. The Republican military-industrial complex is bankrupting our nation, and I work in the defense industry. There are useful programs but right now we need to fix our crumbling infrastructure.
  19. I'd lose my crap with Tina for sure. You are pretty much a Saint. Well day 2 of garage organization and I feel a lot better. It took awhile to start packing but we got probably 50% of the garage done, maybe 60. The rest I'm ok with leaving out while we fix up the house (or some things like paint we will leave behind so the new owners can touch up if needed). A lot of it large tools at this point. I think tomorrow is pressure washing. I offered to do it but got turned down. So maybe I will pack some more. We need to do a dump run, a friend might help us out next weekend.
  20. My husband finally asked me to clean out the garage. This has been a sore point for the last 2 years. My husband has ADHD and just cannot clean up after himself. I have a little more sympathy towards him than I used to now that I understand more about it (and that now I understand that his "I'm not sure I really have ADHD and meds just made me a zombie in 4th grade" are a river in Egypt). It was quite the chore and I spent about 5 or 6 hours in there today and I'm about 80% done. I finally had to give up on some of the loftier goals of everything in its proper place and finally had to resort t
  21. Honestly, Strange kind of sucks. His ego is always messing everything up.
  22. I am not a big MotU fan but we really liked She-Ra. We binged this one night and enjoyed it, although man that ending was dark. It kind of bummed me out and left a bit of a sour taste in my mouth, admittedly, but its clear they are setting Teela up to be the new hero and Adam stood in the way of that. She was ready to take an immediate backseat when he came back. That was his mistake, too. He didn't have to be the one to wield the sword.
  23. You need a new job or a new boss. Is your company big enough to get a transfer? Why is morning girl so special?
  24. I'm making my family eat everything in the pantry and freezer before I buy anything other than milk, bread and eggs. We just ran out of Zbars. Pray for my children.
