I am thinking of getting a blood check to see if I have immunity to measles because I am 11 weeks pregnant. I was probably immunized in school or before college, but I don't know my records or if the immunity has worn off. I had measles when I was young. Honestly, I don't remember that much about it...

Our council was absolutely clueless when I called and asked if there were any homeschool troops or interest-based troops. They offered to link us with a school troop that was near us. I declined. A few months later I discovered a homeschool troop that met...
I have a Brownie and a Junior, and, yes, it really depends on the troop and even on the Council. I never realized how much varies by Council until we started moving around. We have girls joining our troops all the time. Just last week there was a new girl at the Junior meeting. I think they might've been just looking it over to see if they wanted to join next year (and for all I know this may actually be forbidden by other Councils or by all Councils -- to have...
I thought this essay was hilarious. The website seems to be heavily Christian, but the essay itself didn't strike me as such: Home Eating a Threat to Public Kitchens? (I searched a bit and didn't see that anyone had linked this yet. Sorry if this is old news that everyone else already knew about -- it was new to me!)
I knew someone who did this, years ago when we lived in Dover Delaware. I always thought it was a silly idea -- what if the cat needed to "go" in the middle of the night, or when you were at an all-day event, or some other time you couldn't be there to let them in and out? Okay, I know these things happen with dogs, too, but I'm glad I don't have to deal with it because the cats know the locations of all the litter boxes, and can do what they need when they need, without...
I am so sorry. I recently had my 17yo cat put down. It was a tough decision.

If you start with a level after Level B you need to do the Transitions lessons first, which are in a separate book. My older dd did Transitions (which doesn't take very long) then started at Level D. My younger dd tried Level A, but decided she didn't want to do much math yet. No problem -- Level A and Level B are pretty much...
Quote: Originally Posted by wombatclay Did you know St Patrick's day was moved so as not to fall during Holy Week? Nobody seems to have told the parades, pubs, and stores but the solemnity of Patrick was moved up to avoid the conflict. My understanding (as a non-Catholic with dds in Irish Dance, so I've been inundated with this stuff for the past 2 weeks) is that the U.S. Bishops moved the feast but the Irish Bishops didn't. So it varied...
For the record, my MIL has consistently messed up dd's first and middle names. Even on birthday cakes. Now that dd is 12 she's starting to get a clue, but it's been a long, long road. Other grandkids she's been okay with, so it isn't a matter of simply being a ditz about names.
Hurray!
