Sounds good! I’ve really been getting into Escape to the Country; a British program (on reruns on DABL and I think it’s streaming somewhere). Basic premise, city Brits are looking to escape to the country. Lots of shots of countryside, lovely homes, and they always show you something interesting about the area. Read more

He’s supposed to come Monday to fix the roof, but we’re getting more storms, so we’ll see. My bigger is the interior ceiling, which is now starting to come down.  I actually had a massive leave 7 years ago when I moved in and he never fixed the ceiling then, looks like he’ll have to this time.

I’m worried about receipts, everything is over 7 years old and who knows where or if I kept proof of purchase.

We had pouring rain yesterday and my roof leaked in my bedroom. I was in NYC all day for work so didn’t know until I got home at 11pm. My bed is soaked and my laptop is destroyed (watched a movie on it the other night, first time I just left it on my bedroom). Still trying to decide if it’s worth calling my renters in Read more

I’ve really enjoyed Vivian Shaw’s Greta Helsing series (female take on the Van Helsing stories). Mystery and intrigue, small romantic sub-plot, with very likeable characters. I’ve also been blowing through Alisha Rai’s books and I highly recommend! They’re romances and in a fantastic change from the bulk of Read more

I love her books!  Adorable quirky British villages with equally adorable quirky inhabitants.  Very soothing reads.

Jesus. I have no large social media following, but I have made multiple posts reminding people not to ask for emotional labor from their black friends and/or the black people in their lives. There are a multitude of resources to educate yourself.

The number of men who want families without putting in effort is depressingly high. PSA: DO NOT HAVE CHILDREN IF YOU DON’T WANT RAISE THEM! Don’t have kids to feed you’re ego, you will fuck them up and they will resent you.

Same! I did all my laundry and have put it all away - there is NO dirty laundry. I don’t think I’ve ever done this in the 7 years I’ve lived here. It feels fantastic, but now I really know that I need to purge clothes.  It’s too much, but that project is for a later date.  Now I’m just enjoying my laundry free home.

I have this composter and have been happy. However, the openings are small and it’s trickier to remove the compost; can only use a small shovel. I really like the tumble option as it makes turning everything so much easier. I’d really focus on size of the openings and how much it will hold (how much scrap do you Read more

Agree with OWYAC, the vet treatments are most effective and safest for your pet; plus fastest acting. The last time I had an infestation, the gave me topical treatments (I opted for a 3 month supply to be sure they were gone) and the gave me pills to give my cats; works together to kill the fleas both inside and out.

Seconding puzzles! Also if you’re kids have access to phone/tablet and a library card, they can use the overdrive app (I think there are several options) to borrow ebooks and audio books. Read more

Are you in Louisville?! My boyfriend owns a bar there and was pissed this event was so packed while he was debating cancelling his dance party.  So many bar owners don’t know what to do, they need to help their employees make money, but don’t want to get in trouble with all these group restrictions.
