I love this! I too am in a mixed marriage with an extrovert. I love him, but need my nice breaks of solitude for my own mental health!
Thank you! These are great suggestions! I hadn’t even considered an immersion blender bc we already have one. However, our immersion blender is 5 years old and protests when I use it to make smoothies. It may be time to upgrade...
My plans fell through. I was supposed to drive to see family a few hours away but I’m just feeling weird and don’t really think it is a good idea to drive alone.

Thanks! I really love the sloth gif too! Also, thanks for the gif advice. For some reason the embed photo option doesn’t work for me. It just times out and deletes my comment. Maybe I should switch my kinja life over to a new browser.

It’s been a wild week of flu (over it now), shitty students, shitty colleagues, and fella’s stress over a big work project due today. When he gets home, I fully plan on popping a bottle of sparkling wine, putting on my sweats, eating delicious crap food, and finally watching the new season of the good place with him.… Read more
I volunteer to take it all off of your hands! I love okra (fried, in gumbos, in stews, pickled)! I remember hearing once from my dad that there is a way to prep it so that it isn’t so slimy, but I can't remember exactly what it was. If slime is the primary problem, a google search might bring up the alternate prep… Read more
