  1. I have never had a flu shot and I will absolutely be getting one this year and every year from now on. I feel pretty strongly about protecting vulnerable people and hate that I haven’t done that in the past.
  2. Yes! Always! Whether I sing quietly or loudly is dependent on who is in the car with me and, if I do have passengers, how confident I am that I know the lyrics. 😁 Nobody but my mom sings along with me, but the kids don’t usually complain.
  3. That really puts into perspective how very young our country still is!
  4. I relate so strongly to this!
  5. Yes. Majorly. I’m starting to spiral into depression and trying to force myself to enjoy life again. But planning for anything requires so much more thought and effort than it used to! That makes it harder than normal to fake-it-till-I-make-it.
  6. Us, too. Then this morning my 9yo wanted to make a sign for our yard. If anyone messes with it she will be very angry.
  7. Cupcakes are disgusting, how could anyone wish they had one. There must be something wrong with you. Yuck!
  8. Oh, as for how old they are...the large bowls are from around 2000-2005, the baking dishes are probably slightly newer, and the smaller stuff is all about 5-10 years old.
  9. I’ve never had an issue, but I’ve never put anything straight from freezer into oven. I usually put the pan on the top of my gas stove when I remove it from the oven, but occasionally it goes onto a trivet or potholder on the table. After hearing the stories here I won’t be using the potholder again in case it is at all wet. I have 2 9x13 Pyrex baking dishes, 2 large glass bowls that I don’t usually use in the oven but have done so before, and then a variety of round and rectangle ones that rarely get used in the oven because they are too small for my typical use. I also have a couple
  10. We have a living room around that size, but ours has a wide doorway in the middle that can be closed to make it two rooms (Though we have it set up currently so that isn’t possible without moving furniture, and if we stay here in our old age we will use one room as a first floor bedroom.) We also have two fireplaces, so it isn’t quite like yours. Anyway, we have two couches and two armchairs plus side tables in one half, and the other has the piano, a bookcase, a desk with glass-front bookcase on top, a table that acts as a desk and a couple of small pieces of furniture (like the trunk
  11. Yes! It’s criminal, and infuriating!
  12. I definitely think there are occasions where it’s necessary to abandon a cart, such as your example and freesia’s, but I do often see people who appear to have no good reason to abandon their cart doing so. I try very hard not to judge people and give them the benefit of the doubt, so I usually just grab the cart with a smile and put it away myself. I’ve had a few people see me do it and give me sheepish looks, which makes me hope that they will think again before abandoning their cart unnecessarily.
  13. That’s good, at least. And wow, how awesome are you for writing every day during deployment! The cookies are a bummer, though. I’m sure they would have loved to have had those!
