    Thanks for the all the pill advice!

    I do have a pill spitter and crusher, even though it's very rare that I taken even an Advil or something similar. Medicine kind of weirds me out. Anyhow, this is one of those capsules that can be pulled apart, but the medicine is so horrific I cannot possibly put it in food. I only drink water--no exceptions as it's one of my obsessive issues--so I'll just have to keep trying. I do appreciate the advice. :)

    This is a great thread, I agree.

    What about putting the medicine in apple sauce? I used to do that with a horrible tasting medicine and if I ate enough apple sauce the taste kind of went away

    I don't like applesauce (well, I've never tried it, but I know I wouldn't like the texture), but I considered slicing Jello to make a pocket and pouring the medicine in, but that's not an option. It is the MOST horrible taste I've ever experienced, and I am not being dramatic. I just went today and bought an alternative. :)

    Brendan, very nice! You seem to have it together! :thumb: Since you've travelled so much, I'm sure you've been to London. I'll seek you out when I start to plan my trip there!

    I have to ask, out of all the countries you've travelled to, hat places did you really NOT care for or would you revisit them all again?

    1. I am the proud mommy to a female 'mutt' dog Koda, a two different colored eye cat Jakob Simon, and a crazy former stray Boots.

    2. I love that my job entails me getting paint all over my hands, and getting dirty everyday. It makes me feel like I accomplished something.

    3. I love nothing more than finding an amazing bargain, I frequent the thrift shops and just recently splurged 40.00 on a huge assortment of 2.99 apparel! I revamped my whole wardrobe!

    4. I've considered getting my Masters in Eating Disorder awareness or some type of counseling degree in that area due to my battle I had for years with the disease. I can proudly say I'm past that dark area of my life!

    5. I love that my SO and I are remodeling our house mostly on our own and with the help of our family. We've only been there a year and have added a whole new bathroom upstairs.

    6. I procrastinate. (I'm currently at school avoiding going home to make a phone call to Comcast that I don't want to make).

    7. I love painting any and everything. SO will often times be surprised what I've done to the house when he gets home, not always in a good way!

    8. Even though I was upset about my age recently, I've realized that I am an in amazing place in my life. I have a house, fantastic true friends, a great career, charming pets, and a 100%A supportive SO.

    9. I drive a standard. I'm very proud of that one :blush:

    10. I secretly like when it's rainy or overcast because it gives me an excuse to go home and jump right in my pj's.

    3sons, we share some things in common afterall .....:p:p..

    I was premature and wore leg braces for a few years. Somehow I overcame the leg braces and went on (as a 6' 4", 230 pounder) to play Division I college football........

    (I refuse to cross my eyes because I was told they might "stick" that way.....:lol:)

    Major.......:)

    :haha:

    Well, if nothing else, we also share a tendency not to walk away from an argument.:) And we're both patriots.:p

    I never made it to Division I football, or 230 lbs, or 6 feet. I did play rugby a bit in college, though, so I feel I overcame it as well as most.

    My oldest son is frighteningly good at crossing his eyes. He can ping-pong them back and forth, and do it without any aid (I can't cross them even if I put my finger in front of my nose). I find it creepy.

    You're probably right..... :)..... I do have that tendency... but lately I've ignored politics and have been quite happy and content with my wife, my dog, my guns, and my plan to build a compound on 50 acres in Idaho.....:lol::lol::lol:

    Oh, cool, we're allowed to do more than one of these!

    Round Two:

    1. This time last year I weighed in at a hideous and horrifying 220 pounds. I now weight 150, and my goal is 25 more. I feel so much better. There was just something about seeing that huge number on the scale that jarred me into reality. My rheumatologist had to change all my diabetes dosages!

    2. Food used to be something I looked forward to all the time. Now, it's something to sustain life and to fight against. It was more fun the other way, but it wasn't right for me; I'm too weak! I still love to cook and bake, but after we eat I wrap everything up in foil and stick it in the freezer for my husband to take to work for his lunches that next week. When I bake breads and pies, they're always for other people and I no longer make a few extras of anything. I've learned that I cannot be trusted with food in my house, so I don't keep much any more.

    3. I'm hosting Thanksgiving again this year. Fortunately, I've never been a lover of big hot meals or turkey, so I'm not worried about falling into temptation. I got fat on pizza, burgers, and snacking late at night. Other foods do not tempt me.

    4. I am 5'6" tall.

    5. I have two sisters and one brother, all with education degrees. My brother is the dean of finance at a university out west; one sister taught elementary music for twenty years and is now a high school music teacher, but my other sister, who is a licensed elementary teacher, is an insurance underwriter. She makes three or four times the money any of the rest of us make.

    6. I love raw lemons, and I often juice them and pour the juice over crushed ice. Sugar is for sissies.

    7. I would kill for a deep-dish Sicilian pizza right now, but because pizza very nearly killed me, I can abstain.

    8. I don't watch any television whatsoever, but I do buy the DVD's of Ugly Betty, Scrubs, and MASH. Sometimes I'll get on Hulu or YouTube and check out old episodes of shows I watched as a child, or maybe a segment a friend recommends, but not often.

    9. For an older broad, I'm pretty tech savvy. These days, anyone of any age who isn't tech savvy has chosen to be out of the loop of mainstream planet Earth.

    10. I hated elementary school with an intensity that, even now, has still not entirely passed. I was taught nothing, and spent all seven years (counting K) sitting out in the hall tutoring slow kids. I learned to read years before I started school, and often my teachers would take my books away from me and insist that there was no WAY I could possibly be reading and understanding them. I was forced to do reports on thin baby books at school, when I was reading Gone with the Wind at home. I've been obsessed with astronomy since I was about five, but I learned early on not to talk about it or try to do any projects, etc, about it in grade school. Even though I could answer every question the teachers and science fair judges asked me, my projects were eliminated because "no little kid could possibly have done that." It didn't take long before I was doing projects about "Which will rust: pebbles or nails" like the other little kids. Sigh. There was nothing and nobody in the elementary school for a little child like me. My own kids had the same problem, but by then I knew enough to fight for them. It did little good, but at least a few things were changed. To this day, some of my worst nightmares are about grade school, and being forced to write lists of little one-syllable baby words when my teachers knew I was beyond that, and being "rewarded" by being sent out in the hall to help the slow kids, and sitting in agony while other kids struggled to read aloud the simplest things, wishing I could just open my library book and shut it all out. Oh, God, even writing this down, I'm breaking out in a cold sweat of remembered horror. I hope all of you elementary teachers try to accommodate the fast, bright kids in your rooms. I know you're swamped with the lowest common denominator, but please try? I know there are a lot of little kids like I used to be in our schools, dying of boredom and wishing they could just be themselves without a battle with adults every time.

    Yeah, Momacita. I know what you mean. I remember the standard testing in the 5th grade. I scored 99 on every test, you could not get a 100, "cause no one in 5th grade is that smart. Children who are at the top are just as hard to teach as the children at the bottom.

    I don't think it's so much that bright kids are hard to teach as it is to find the time to do right by them since we have to deal with so many lower kids. I've had teachers who actually ordered me to "SLOW DOWN" because they simply didn't know how to deal with a kid who was finished so fast and expressed such eagerness to learn MORE and MORE, FASTER and FASTER! With so many kids who must go slowly, it's easier to delegate the bright little kids to the hallway to be unpaid teacher assistants than to do all the work necessary to give these bright little kids the education they deserve. Many teachers are angry with the bright kids for messing up their curriculum. My own children were told to stop asking so many questions. We're probably the only nation that caters to its lowest common denominator in our schools and ignores - even punishes - its cream. Sigh. I don't think this is an issue that simply throwing money at will fix. I believe it's a matter of educating our teachers so they will know how to deal with children who do not learn by rote or lists or musically dreadful Dr. Jean jingles, or the Shurley Method, or the "Daily Five," and who, while still children, have the intellect, sometimes, of an adult. In school, I wanted substance and whimsy and big words and, as Anne Shirley would say, "scope for the imagination," and what I got was the feeling that all of the adults in that building would like me better if I were slow and stupid and NEEDED their little lists and drills and jingles that offended my sense of the musical flow of the language AND the art. But oh well.

    I hear you, Blue. I had to take the standardized tests over again, with two witnesses, in fifth grade because nobody in administration believed I could have scored that high without outside help. It was humiliating. And even then, they only gave me a 99, because anything else would seem "suspicious" to the State.

    School should be entertaining .............:spitwater:
    Smart kids who finish their work with out entertainment are slowed down ...
    I have never been in favor of heterogeneous grouping
    Homogeneous grouping does not hold back the smart kids and does not frustrate the slower learner AND it is easier to teach IMHO :2cents:

    1. I have accomplished two major goals in my life: being a teacher and building a house
    2. I am mildly OCD.
    3. I really really miss my hometown, but I don't want to move anytime soon. Moving is so stressful!!!
    4. I love animals. I have always had donkeys as pets until I was about 18. They are usually very sweet and mild. Stubborn, but not mean.
    5. I once tried to play a piano piece in front of an audience of music majors. I had never played a song by memory until that time. I got so nervous I forgot the whole song!!!
    6. I want a fox terrier SO BADLY!!!!!
    7. I love my parents. They are two of my best friends. I could spend hours and hours with them a day.
    8. I once ate a lightbulb. At least that's what it seemed like. I was a three year old, and I had just been to the circus the day before. My parents bought me this fancy flashlight. I wanted to take it to VBS the next day. At snack time, my mom noticed I was standing in the corner chewing something crunchy. It did not sound like peanut butter and crackers! She asked me to open my mouth. I opened it, and there was the light bulb's metal piece. No sign of the bulb. Granted, it was a tiny bulb, but still. I don't remember this happening, but I like to think I really did somehow eat the bulb. By the way, I was fine after that.
    9. I have the world's softest cat!!! Her fur is so soft I have to make myself put her down. Everyone that pets her comments on how soft she is. Unfortunately, she does not care for petting.
    10. My dad used to be an illusionist. Once he had me to help him with a trick. He borrowed this contraption from a friend that was supposed to appear to chop through a person's hand. Well, I was the one putting my hand through it, and my dad was going to "chop" it off. We practiced it many times, and it was flawless. Well, when the real deal came he forgot to put some sort of safety thing across my wrist. The dull blade pinched my skin, and my wrist started to bleed. It really didn't hurt much, and I thought it was a cool effect. (I was in first grade). The audience was freaked out, but we just played it off like it was supposed to happen. Maybe they thought we had used some fake blood. : )

    Sounds like Jeff Dunham and Achmed's "take your kid to work day"
