Oh, yeah. (Shoot. All those Minnesotans I'm surrounded by ARE having an effect, lol.)

Paying for teacher's gifts, sharing school supplies, bad grammar bringing down Western civilization. I'm shocked. Shocked, I tell you! I had no idea that hand sanitizer was such a hot topic.

Gosh...I gave gifts to teachers (usually $5 giftcards to Starbucks or Target - once the kids were in HS though, I had them write notes to teachers they felt especially grateful for)....I also brought in whatever school supplies were asked for. I just did. Some of it I might not have understood but I generally bought what was on the list. I'm sure whatever I did is now being touted as contributing to the downfall of Western civilization....

They also both had hand sanitizer in their backpack/locker....

May I just say the threads around here SUCK at the moment, I can barely bear reading them, let alone bothering to respond. I haven't seen such nastiness in a while.

I would also like to apologize on behalf of all "furrners" for the behavior of our Eastern Europen not-friend for continuing her anti-American spew in the education forum. I swear, we are trying to get her reclassified from "furrner" to "alien", as in real-dinkum other-planet alien.

Julia - love the pic.
Oh, I loves me some furriners. Y'all talk even weirder than my relatives do...

Seriously, I am sooooo not "America love it or leave it" under normal circumstances. Shoot, I complain about Florida a lot. But there are also really good things about it, too, and they need acknowledged as well. I completely understand conflicted, it's relentless negativity I don't get.

Yeah, the small-stuff people obsess over at the kids school makes you want to scream. Should we use the small boxes of tissues or the large ones? Should we insist people bring in roller towel with the small sheets or the large? Can we stipulate a brand of hand sanitizer? The good thing about being labelled a trouble-making smart-alec is people know better than to ask me those kinds of questions.

Haha! So that's the trick, is it?

Honestly, reading some of the stuff you guys go through with the older kids' schools and peers' parents makes me want to keep LSE 3 forever! Or hide under a rock...

Aw, poor Macie! Good luck - hope the vet doesn't cost an arm and a leg (a vain hope, I know).

I am so not in the mood to get up early tomorrow.

I have to go support the Women Marine Association bright and early tomorrow. It's a good cause. Just not in the mood to get up early and do a 5k walk. But I will. Because I'm quite sure, those Marines didn't feel like doing much of what they did all the time either. 5k is a very small token.

Good for you doing the 5k, mm.

I hope macie feels better. Poor pooch!

My BB is severely allergic to ragweed. Every year he ends up on a short dose of steroids. It's the only thing that gets his itching under control.

Thanks Hopes. Macie has been on Prednizone off and on since Dec. - she seems to be itchy all year round. Not good. The vet does not want to keep her on Pred. more than necessary as it is hard on the liver (I think)....she's been on Atopica (which is cyclosporine). Quite pricey but safer than long term steriod treatment.
