I’m sorry your office opened too early, but happy you’re back home now. LS’s company sent out a survey asking what measures could be taken to make employees feel safe coming back to the office. The overwhelming response was “none”, and the company actually listened. They’re closed at least through September. Since Read more

My AC had a hiccup a couple weeks ago (also AZ) and I freaking panicked. It went fully out this time a few years ago and it was HELL.

I’m pretty sure it’s because I spent my first seven or eight July fourths in my grandparents’ 15th floor condo. The fireworks were SO CLOSE. The building swayed, car alarms went off, and I’d be hiding in the bedroom under a pile of pillows. My whole family would be having fun, trying to get me to chill out and join Read more

I hate fireworks. They trigger a panic response in me like nothing else. I had a full meltdown at Disney World a few years ago, it was mortifying.

I’m super annoyed with myself for that one. I was just being careless. It’s freaking sore now, too.

We had a fun weekend lounging around mostly naked, watching movies, and playing video games. LS is off all this week to relax and get some projects taken care of, so that should be nice. Last night we decided to just throw together a salad to go with our leftover pizza to keep things easy, but I still managed to cut Read more

It’s so freaking fun! I just poured my second batch about an hour ago, and it’s going to kill me waiting to cut into it.

It is fun! I also have sensitive skin, and we both have eczema, so I like making our own products.

Cold process. Curious about hot process, but not familiar. I just mixed the lye for my second batch! I got a real mold with a silicone liner, it should come out much more cleanly.

I played around with melt and pour years ago and it was super fun. I can’t wait to play with colors and stuff!

Yeah, I’ve been working on building up some real usable skills. Brushing up on my knitting and sewing, doing a little canning.

I would not attempt this with small children running free. I’m already doing all my mixing outside with the dogs closed inside.

I have some weird little silicone ice molds that aren’t very good for ice, so I’m probably repurposing them for this. Shit, except the ninja turtle ones are technically LordSparrow’s so I can’t just steal those.

Not weird, that seems to be the going trend 😂 My mom thought it was maple fudge at first (then was bummed she won’t be getting maple fudge) and TeenSparrow says it looks like goat cheese.

We have two refrigerators with attached freezers and a chest freezer. The chest freezer is dedicated to meats and ready to eat meals for emergencies. Mostly homemade meals we portion out and freeze, but also a nice selection of pizzas, chicken strips, and the like. We’ve been eating out of that freezer a bit too often Read more

We’re definitely giving him a dose of Benadryl with dinner and trying to figure out what could be setting him off.

He was a stray picked up off the street at about 7 weeks old, and we took him in two weeks later. He’s four years now. Read more

We’ve been trying elimination. Started by removing poultry, now I’m getting him off beef. Food is getting so much more expensive.
