Re: I think...

Yup. Thanks, Ish. I am as exhausted and frustrated as I have been in a long time. I'm getting better at learning this feeling, though. The first time I had it, it took me two years to decide that I had to make a change. I finally got there after a [more]

Re: What now?

part of me feels the issue isn't really the job itself, rather ...

So one of the main things that take people out of jobs is some kind of dissatisfaction with their bosses. How's your relationships with your boss?

Re: What now?

My dad once described his job like this: "It is my job to worry about everything that could happen. And then decide which of those possibilities I'm going to make real, and which I'm going to prevent."

I asked him about about how [more]

Re: An Open Letter

I replied to the end of the thread. But that's okay. We can piss on each other alllll day about this, I'm sure!

ThyPeace, not contesting, you understand, since I'm not actually equipped for those.

Re: An Open Letter

Yup, good point. If we'd been talking about swimming in the reservoir, I might have phrased it differently.

ThyPeace, But we weren't talking about swimming in it while peeing, because then we would be having a different conversation.

Re: An Open Letter

I bet there's not a single person reading this who hasn't peed in a lake full of water, someplace.

I bet about half the population has never done this.

Re: Foot Doctor!

Thanks, tconi. It sounds like the stuff our food pantry gives out is similar in type, but less in quantity for dry goods. They do give out a lot of fresh food in addition, so that may make the difference.

I took DD grocery shopping one day [more]

Re: Foot Doctor!

Thank you, Wild. I appreciate knowing more about your foodbank experiences. It sounds like yours is more like a shopping expedition than the one DD and I work at. There, the boxes are pre-packed and handed out at various locations around the county. [more]

Re: Cleaning

Thanks for the thoughts about grout cleaning and sealing. I didn't know that was a possibility either. I've dealt with this stuff for 11 years and have not yet managed to replace it. One day though, it absolutely must go. Whoever thought this was a [more]

If you had any other variety of pepper near those gems, you will likely get something else.

Re: Herb Garden Cleanup

I lost almost all of my herbs between last year's construction and this winter's cold. The sage, chives, and thyme (or savory, can't remember which) are the only survivors.

So Sunday I got ambitious and planted a bunch of seeds. Garlic and [more]

No, he's not a psychopath.

I know that Ish knows, but I think maybe a reminder for all of us is good anyway. There is a difference between mental illness and stress-induced crazy behavior. There is also a difference between mental [more]

Cleaning

I barely decluttered at all last night, though I did pack up a bunch of videocassettes that I'll never use again.

I did, though, actually -clean-. Three hours later, every surface on the main floor of the house was sparkling. The kitchen [more]

Re: Childish but.

That is a lot of silver! Good for you for going through it all.

A little organizing.

I'm not really spending much time organizing or decluttering these days. But DD is away for spring break and I'm trying to use my time wisely. First thing I did was to bag up all the books she sorted last weekend. She has been a pack rat since she [more]

Re: Chasing "The Help" Away...

I understand the sarcasm. But I will say that it's really nice to see an actual attempt at focusing on investment implications. There are many. One that I see is that the well-off will have to start ensuring housing for those that they wish to [more]
