#momlife today: 1. Pack school lunch/soccer bag, check homework, school dropoff. 2. 75-min drive. 3. @StartX group interview/stack rank 30 hopeful teams. 4. 45-min drive. 5. Finish "witch cat" costume & bake 24 Halloween cupcakes for school. 6. Start laundry. 7. @WebSummit prep!
Hoping this is my last key decision today, now that I have worked out the best way for @calista to wear both a witch hat and cat ears 🐱🤔🧙‍♀️ Image
...ok, who was I kidding...here's to all the moms & dads who are up late making costumes tonight! 🤣👩‍👧💕🎃 Image
TFW you finally wrap up a weeknight-holiday mom shift 😪 ImageImageImage

Box fan air filters work...

Pic #1: MERV 12, MPR 1500 @3M @Filtrete, at 8:30AM today. In use nonstop for 1 week, in SF, in a bedroom with doors/windows shut. Taped to a cheap box fan on medium setting (2).

Pic #2: the same filter, at 6:30PM today. Outside AQI was 200-230. ImageImage
Per the @nytimes, 87% of smoke particulates are removed from a room within 35 minutes, with a box fan air filter on a medium setting. (In an unfair comparison to expensive purifiers being run on high....you can also run the box fan on high!)

nytimes.com/wirecutter/blo…
Pro tips:
1. Seal all air gaps with either gaffer or duct tape (see pic)
2. The filter can go on either the front or back. Pick the side *farthest away* from the fan blade, to get the most air flow. If you like, go even farther by adding a cardboard box (picture a wind tunnel!) Image

What a residential neighborhood looks and sounds like in San Francisco tonight 😲
Has been going on for 20-30 minutes and no signs of slowing down. (from Bernal Heights) @Bernalwood @SFist
Related: I am now sitting in the puppy crate. He's done great, but an hour (and counting) takes a toll when you're only 15 weeks old. ❤ Image

Kicking off July 4th weekend with a @HamiltonMusical watch party for @girlscouts @troop61691 - and our scouts LOVED it. Thank you @disneyplus @Lin_Manuel for sharing it in time! 🤩🇺🇸

PS Interested in Hamilton-with-kids? See thread for our cheat sheet. @GSNorCal @zoom_us
1. Set up a @zoom_us meeting, and make sure to have a couple of breakout rooms. Kids get bored on text-only, and Zoom supports video sharing during the show. Also, if (when) any kids get chatty, they can 'take it outside' into a breakout room, while the show continues for others.
2. Provide kid-friendly context for @HamiltonMusical - we posted both @CRFUSA's Federalist Papers worksheet (for grades 4-6) and @NYHistory's online exhibit on Alexander Hamilton, to @troop61691's @GoogleForEdu Classroom.

Heard from my daughter's 4th grade teacher that alternate-day school attendance is being considered for next year - eg, K-2 on Mon/Wed, 3-5 on Tues/Thurs
(thread)
Pros:
- dropping daily attendance from 520 to 260, in the same physical space, makes distancing more feasible
- school 2 days/week should mitigate most of the social/emotional toll that kids are going through
- less scrambling by parents to home school
Cons:
- home 3 days/week means parents must work from home 3 days/week ongoing
- parents without remote-work jobs must scramble for childcare, as well as 'substitute teachers'
- parents must continue to manage lesson plans for whatever subjects/lessons aren't covered in-school
