  5. Swaps
    I have some books that I can't seem to get rid of anywhere, and I'll admit, some of them are rather old or even not so popular (maybe?) but still have lots of life in them. They range from small children books all the way to adult/teen books, some even craft books. I'm not sure how many books...
  6. Education
    Does anybody do this. My ds has made such progress I don't want to backslide. I was considering giving him two weeks off the start of June and then going back to a light schedule (LA, Math, and fun experiments, Liberty Kids, etc). Maybe an hour/day. Then two more weeks off in August. Any...

  8. Health and beauty
    My arm is officially nicknamed "the pincushion" :( We did the fruit/veggie testing today. He does not think it is oral allergy syndrome because of the serious reactions I am having. He says that is not oral allergy syndrome. So far the skin tests have identified these allergies: apples (he...

    We bought a quarter side of beef last winter and I'm trying to use up some of it. I've got a round steak thawing in the fridge. I'm thinking of putting it in the crockpot with some onions and bell peppers. Maybe some onion soup mix and tomato sauce - served on top of mashed potatoes.... Any...
