  1. The last place I interviewed wasn’t a good fit for the sales job, but someone from their company just put in their notice they are leaving this month. This is a mostly work-from-home role and they offered it to me. Little to no sales. I get to update certain material on the website and for the print copy (monthly magazine). I also will help add to the current directories/calendar. I start training in person on Wednesday but will do a lot from home. I attended the group meeting via computer this morning. The meeting wasn’t long and Dd left me alone. Plus I could mute my mic if I had to. Dh work

  2. I'm so happy for you!!! Hooray!!! I know your husband will probably object to this, but I suggest opening an account only in your name to have your paycheck deposited in. And if you need to use some of your money for household expenses, you can transfer a specific amount to the household account without using all of it. I think this is important enough for you to hold a firm line on it and refuse to just put your money into the main account. You might tell your husband that you want to build some savings, so that your family will have options if/when you decide to live somewhere othe

  6. My dh is an electrician so I asked his 2 cents. He says he frequently disconnects dryer vents when he is troubleshooting them because he has to pull them away from the wall. He would never consider turning off the power - he of course needs the power on to troubleshoot. He has never seen this cited in code, and believes that the plumber is not at fault. Basically, he said anybody that is arguing that the dryer should be unplugged is arguing that it should be turned off before anybody touches it. The entire dryer was "hot" in this scenario - the vent should not electocute someone anymore

  7. Morning! That sounds more chipper than morning actually is. but maybe I'll get that way over time, given enough caffeine. I was absolutely worn out this weekend. I cried most of the way through Friday from writerly stress, deep emotions, and general lack of sleep. Felt better on Saturday after getting around 7 hours of sleep (not all at one time), and Sunday wasn't terrible either because I got to come home early and then just lay down on the couch all evening and refused to do anything. I had no mental space even for reading. But I slept well last night, and pretty heavy rain meant

  8. Good morning! Happy birthday, Amy! 🌸 Scout, I hope the doctor you're seeing today can help you with the leg cramps. May, I haven't worn a size 6 1/2 since I was about ten years old. We all have big clodhopper feet in this family! Storygirl, congrats on being done with braces! The full moon above the snowy landscape is gorgeous this morning - I tried to get some photos, but they don't do it justice. Nothing much happening here today, other than the usuals. Ds21 will be home for dinner and maybe to spend the night. He is coming down to work on his truck - the toolbox on

  9. Scout, I'm so sorry you are dealing with those terrible leg cramps! Today is my birthday, but it will be a regular school day. Dd was still here this weekend and they gave me a birthday breakfast yesterday. I went with her for her final "move" yesterday because she didn't have room to take everything. She took me out to a great restaurant for lunch. It was very emotional leaving her. Pray she finds good friends and community. I worry about her being lonely. I slept in, and now I need to get going coffee meals school with ds tutor 2 students meal plan an

  11. Another school week begins. I am ready for summer, so that I don't have to be up at 6 am daily, but it's a long time away. Sigh. Fortunately, DH helps rally the kids in the mornings and also does the first dog walking every day, so that I don't have to be completely functional right away. I appreciate that about him. He is also tired in the mornings but seems to be able to wake up more easily than I do. ✔️Shower ✔️Wash sheets and towels Remake the bed One or two other loads of laundry Review materials for the school meeting tonight about signing my two 8th graders up for high school

  18. Appears I forgot to update last week! So, finished 5 books over the past two weeks: 10. Just Mercy by Bryan Steveson (audiobook) - read by the author. This was a fantastic book. And a bit depressing, but hopeful by the end. Very highly recommended. 5 stars. 11. The Diamond in the Window by Jane Langton - a middle-grades book that I'd never heard of before that someone said was their favorite as a child, and it's set in nearby Concord, in fact probably about 2 blocks from where I met dh, so thought I'd give it a quick read. Sweet book, might have given it more stars if I'd been t

I’m off to a promising start, eh? ■ Highlights of the Collections of the Oriental Institute (Jean M. Evans; 2017. Non-fiction.)

  20. IT seems that the Protestant churches that I have been a part of fully embrace extroverted expressions of faith but often struggle to relate to more introverted ones. For instance. We are told to "be still and know that I am God." This, as an introvert, is my wheelhouse. I LOVE being alone with just me and God. And yet, we are also told to "go into all the world and spread the Gospel." and all those "one another" verses where I'm supposed to be speaking life into others and allowing them to speak life into me. Because the extroverted actions can be SEEN, in many churches those are e

  21. Scarlett, sorry I'm reading this thread backwards, but I can't understand this. If you're connecting anything to an appliance that is plugged in, you're working around electricity. You're working on the appliance itself. Those vents are usually metal or have metal components. If he's attaching a metal component to a plugged in appliance he's literally working on an appliance that is connected to electricity. I get wanting to defend someone when they are down, but how you can possibly say a skilled tradesman wasn't working on an appliance or wasn't working around electricity while installing a

  25. I finished quite a few books last week! I read some American Girl books and some frou-frou fairy books for my girls. I sometimes can get my older girls to pre-read for the youngers, but I knew that if I asked any of them to read the fairy books I would have to make it up to them in a big way. It was easier to just bite the bullet and read them myself. Sigh. I did, though, actually finish some books that I wanted to read. Hidden Figures -- This book was good, although I liked the movie much better. The book jumped around a lot from person to person and it was a little bit har

  32. Yep. And the economic effect is going to be huge. I don't think the people in charge of the Chinese government are insane, they wouldn't intentionally shoot themselves in the foot like that. Viruses do mutate and jump from one host to another all on their own, quite frequently; that would seem to be by far the most likely explanation. Something accidentally escaping from a research facility would be a distant second in order of probability Intentional release into one's own population of a biological agent that cannot be controlled? Not even on the probability chart.

  33. I am seeing both sides of this (what a good Anglican I am! hahaha). I see "going to church" as more than attending the service. It is also participating in parish life, and some of that happens right before and right after the actual service/liturgy. I see people saying several things in this conversation. The Catholic/Orthodox seem to be very focused on the vertical dimension of the faith, and the more Protestant seem to be focusing on the horizontal dimension of faith, though both expressions of faith include both horizontal and vertical. In this thread, the Catholic view appea

I gave her some early spring fertilizer.

Um, we're in trouble because of the mess your dw left. How is this my problem??? What the entire committee doesn't get is that I've been cleaning out for 2 years!

  40. Wow. I agree that the insurance companies need to work this out. It would depend partly on who followed / didn't follow safety procedures. I doubt it is the fault of the homeowner - maybe the fault of the person who put in the electric wires or however that worked. Or maybe the plumber should have turned off the electricity before connecting anything. Would hate to see the homeowners lose their house over something tradesmen did.

  48. I would be delighted! I am faceblind; I can be part of a congregation (say, 100-200 people)for years and only regularly recognize maybe ten percent. I recognize people with unusually distinctive features, everyone else sort of blends together. Doesn't matter much how often I see you, how much I care about you, how much time I spend talking to you--I'm going to need lots of contextual clues to know who you are. Name tags are wonderful.
