Ha! I grew up in a soda state by pop parents. Yes, it can be a challenge!
I live in the Seattle area too, and same. I’ve thought about moving somewhere cheaper... But it’s so gorgeous here, the weather is mild, it’s a blue state, and we’re less than two hours from the Canadian border if the shit really goes down.
I had to laugh, every year during haying season my town’s FB explodes with “marshmallow” pictures. Sometimes they are hay, wrapped to keep it dry (this is what I feed my horses)... Sometimes they are haylage, which is hay that is baled slightly wet, then wrapped and then left to ferment for the cows over the winter!
Central OR is beautiful. I have friends in Bend and they love it, although I’m not sure how the prices are there. Northern Central WA is gorgeous and incredibly cheap. I’ve dreamed of buying land in Tonasket for many moons... Bonus - you’re real close to the Canadian border if we go full Handmaid’s Tale here... One of…
That’s literally the only reason I’m here. LOL
Shit, I work here (corporate) and I’m not buying anything in solidarity... I regret that I still had to show up in the office. Oh well.
He’s a he :) He’s very smart! Sometimes it makes him a nuisance, but mostly it makes him extra cute!
Piggie Smalls says summer rainstorms mean nap time!
Jettgirl 2020: Piggie wants to know if you’re on your trip? He says he’s excited to meet his grandpa.
I’m trying to be happy on this Tuesday as it’s warm and beautiful out... But I had to come into the office today and my job feels extra soul crushing on those days. I’m having a major existential crisis... Like, I am deeply deeply unhappy with my current career but I have no idea what to do about that because my…
I hate all of these. The bumble good vibes only is especially cringey... But at least these men are letting everyone know up front that they’re gonna act like raging assholes and will expect you to put up with their shit with a smile so we can all avoid them like the plague.
I commented above but wow, you’re having the exact same issue I had this winter, and I also have Skyla which is almost the exact same age as yours. Turns out for me it was a hormonal imbalance and my doctor told me that sometimes that can happen with hormonal IUDs as they get near needing replacement.
I did not have the skin issues but I had this exact same issue this winter... I had spotting to a full period for months straight, along with awful and constant pain. Mine turned out to be a hormonal imbalance. My GP put me on the pill and that took care of the issue. I actually only had to take it for a month and I…
Ha! That is gross, but better there than somewhere that you’ll accidentally step on it in the middle of the night (as me how I know).
Gah - I’m very sorry it hasn’t worked for you. I had the exact same experience when I got on it last month except I only took it for two weeks and said fuck this. It worked for me years ago for anxiety and I don’t remember having the constant tiredness then, but this time it made me a complete zombie and like you,…
When I was a kid we used to swim in our horses water troughs and drink out of the hose that was laying on the farmyard ground mere seconds before... So yeah, the pearl clutching over this is hilarious.
She was, thank gawd! She’s kind of intimidating and I’m new on the team... So it was a relief that she bought in as soon as I came back with results.
Last week I had to tell my boss that the process she wanted us to use to do my job was not working. It sucked and she side eyed me and I felt like I don’t know wtf I’m doing. Today I got to go in and show a ridiculously awesome turnaround having used the process I came up with and it was so fun. Vindication that I DO…
I’m lucky enough to live alone after 8 years living with a partner. I honestly can’t imagine living with someone again. I love having my own space, being able to go home and be alone when I want, decorate how I want, etc. I’m also non-monogamous so it makes it much easier to hang with my partners and have one on one…
Ugh. It just keeps happening. I just got a notice from corporate security that there was a shooting outside of one of our buildings today. Glad I worked from home. I don’t think it was this kind of situation but still scary as hell and not something we should have to worry about.
