It’s close up the RV day. I had to explain to my mom and brother that my car is not a Tardis. It is not bigger on the inside, so no, I could not fit 3 large plastic tubs, 2 coolers, 8 pillows, 2 complete sets of linens (including comforters), a full laundry basket, 2 milk crates, and my bag in there.

My mom has been working to set up a Facebook raffle thingy for her non-profit using Square to process payments. You could go that route with the understanding between your two groups that any money received from Square is for the fund you want.

Right. And there’s a ton of stuff in the freezer. I just a) don’t want it and/or b) don’t want to put in the mental/physical effort to make something with it.

I am being moderately productive today. I got some stuff done, and have a plan for the afternoon. Right now I am eating a bowl of soup for lunch. Tomorrow I go in to the office for the day. Unfortunately, I have nothing in the fridge for supper, and I don’t feel like pulling anything out of the freezer. It’ll be Read more

I am currently running “tech support”’for my mom to set up a square page for the charity she runs. Problem is, neither of us has done this before so it’s mostly us yelling at each other that we don’t know what to do. It is not going well, and I am frustrated.
