Good to know, thanks!

Yep. If it weren't for KHive on Twitter, there would have been pretty much zero info stateside.
No. DST (daylight savings time) is when the clocks “spring forward” in the Spring. Real time (aka standard time) is in the Fall. Now is real time.
I was getting really nervous bc I haven't gone to the discord group yet.
Ok-ish. Upsides - DST is about to end, I have a TON of PTO to take in the next two months, my kids’ football seasons are one game away from being over. Downsides - senior cat has an aggressive cancer, dealing with divorce BS and expenses, driving 20 miles RT every weekday bc my mayor eliminated zoning AND busing, so I… Read more
DST is idiotic. We have streetlights, etc and it is a MISERY if you have small children. The days gets longer and shorter throughout the seasons every.single.year. Just stop it already.
My ex and I were house hunting and found what we thought was the perfect place - great location, reasonable property taxes, well within our budget, wood burning fireplace! - went with our agent to check it out and it was everything we wanted, except it felt miserable. The whole house felt off, but certain spots were… Read more
Yes. An older baby would be in a PICU, not a NICU.
Dogs are the best. I was house-sitting for my parents once, and their dog - a lab/shepherd mix who was so stupidly friendly he would open the door for burglars and show them where all the best stuff was - started creeping from room to room. I was following him when he suddenly turned away from the wall and physically… Read more
Gah! BTW, you are absolutely correct about The Beast - best rollercoaster ever.
I believe it's a play on the phrase "brevity is the soul of wit" from Hamlet.
They are! And we got that done right away. All but two of their friends are as well so they were able to have a more normal summer this year.
Had my first porn conversation with one of my kids at 12yo bc he’d already seen it online. Discussed what things look like on camera vs real life, that it’s often filmed for male viewing pleasure and isn’t necessarily going to be enjoyable to a real life partner, ethical porn, CONSENT CONSENT CONSENT, if it’s not fun… Read more
Pretty good. The kids are back in school after 18 months home. I'm nervous about it, but am enjoying the quiet!
Maya! Hi!!! Hope things are going well for you.
Awwwww! You deserve this! Wishing you all the good things relationship-wise, job-wise, etc.
Definitely my favorite Kate Bush album. I'm a bit weird in that I'm not a big fan of revisiting the music of my youth, but I can listen to her anytime anyplace. That voice is timeless.
My son broke his arm earlier this week, so we got a bird’s eye view of what HCWs have been dealing with. We’re in a relatively decently vaccinated region, but in a pediatric ER, most of the patients are too young still. We sat out in the hallway most of the evening bc there wasn't enough room left to separate the… Read more
My apologies to the person who left a kind comment who I cannot seem to respond to!
