  1. I was surprised by how many people can’t seem to deal/don’t know what to do with their kids........ We also saw that some think there will be another baby boom after this.......
  2. Nothing wrong with how you’re starting out with your training plan. If you start out too hot & heavy, you’re more likely to burn out/give up. (IMO). Stick with this for a bit.......then add on.
  3. So, the last two weeks have been a dumpster 🔥. The Dragon locked me in the darkness, and force fed me many jelly beans. The mulligrubs and dunwannas kept watch. Evil little beasts. And, It’s been snowing. Again. Social distancing, pms crap, normal brain crap have been weighing heavy on me. I try to remember that I am blessed, I am loved, this won’t last forever (or will it?) etc. Add in all the weird propaganda type commercials I’ve been seeing, and I start getting paranoid. We decided to plant some potatoes that sprouted in the pantry. Just to see what’ll happen. And some onion bulbs. And soon, some sweet potatoes, once the seed potatoes come. (My local store has no potatoes of all things. But I did find some toilet paper.....) So we are becoming potatoes farmers. We even built a compost bin. Once the weeds start growing, we’ll be able to start that. I continue to knit my sock. Will be done soon (ish) and start the other. I’m *thinking* of trying two at a time, once this pair is done. Why not? I never thought I’d be knitting on 2 circulars, but I learned. Not a whole lot else to do, so lets learn more things. Didn’t fast last week. Was not anywhere near the mental place needed for that. Not really there now, either, but I’m gonna try again. Feeling grumpy and blue, but trying to not be. Thank goodness my honey is being super understanding. And doesn’t flee when I start crying all over him. 😫 TTFN my lovelies.
  4. I remember that movie. Scared the shit out of me as a kid.......that and some movie (or twilight zone episode?) about a guy who had to wear sunglasses because his white eyes killed people. Weird ass movies back then. Like kudzu...
  5. Everything is weird, the world is currently crazy, people are sick, confined etc. You’re bound to have feelings, some negative, about the whole effing mess. I too have found myself irritated and irritable lately. (And compensating with food, which is no good at all). There’s not a lot we can do right now, but do our best. Today our best might be bitchy, tomorrow not. Love on your Jacks (my kitty is named Jack......officially Master Jack Sketcher, along with Lady Freebish von Blackshark and Lady Miss Harley Quinn Rocket. What can I say, we’re weird. 🤪) he knows you’re out of sorts. Let him comfort you.
  6. The last several times I’ve cooked pork it’s tasted off......Not rancid or anything, just.....wrong somehow. Very possibly it’s the pork from Walmarts issue. I know that was the issue with chicken for a long time......until we started shelling out for the better chicken. I guess once the madness passes, I’ll have to see if there is a pork alternative. (Free range hormone & antibiotic free)
  7. Thank you, and I don’t know? I’ve talked about it before........
  8. Life-lines will save your work.....and your sanity on a difficult (or long) project. You don’t have to frog (or tink) as far back. One shawl I did had 4 or 5 in it!
  9. Dental floss. It was my first time doing the fish lips kiss heel, so I ran life-lines in case I made a major boo-boo. It’s on the back burner right now, tho. Some of my knitting buddies and I are participating in the Traveling Afghan project by Lion Brand Yarn. The newest square just came out so I’m working on that right now. And I’m going to learn how to do the next sock on 2 circular needles. Nothing else to do, so I’ll learn new things and knit. Sorry, too much information ..........😃
  10. Here is the sock that I'm learning to knit. I got to the heel yesterday....spoilered because it's a huge picture.... Last week: Fasting went well. 2 walks/workouts in @ 3.2 miles each. This week: Fasting is going okay. Yesterday was hangry tho, so only fasted 24 hours instead of 36. 2 walks so far; 1@ 2.8 mi, 1@3.2 mi Plan on walking today. Will do a darebee Hiit thing later this week.
  11. Theres a show? Gah, I played that on..... a nes? Super nes? Gee, I don’t remember.
  12. Oh yeah, those closed too. I will try to do the Hero Maker darebee workout. It doesn’t use the things that hurt. (Tendonitis in rotator cuff)
  13. Here it’s liquor & pot shops. They tried to close them, and everyone ran to the damn shops, to get their stash before they closed. So they deemed them essential, so people would maybe stay home more. My prep has been getting ready to batten the hatches. We don’t want to go out until absolutely necessary, so I did my hunting (everyone is out of everything) and gathering (getting what I could in he face of the shortage of everything). We are as ready as we can be.
  14. My Grandpa was a GP doctor, and always said kids who ate dirt (not necessarily literally, just getting dirty) were healthier than the kids who had parents who didn’t let them get dirty..
  15. Sporadically. My rotator cuff is being an ass, so I’m taking it easy, and only rowing when it’s not hurting. The dark horse videos are great, and I enjoy not having to worry about the pace as well.
  16. The story thus far........ 4 days into zero week. 2 3.25 mile walks. Went a new (for hubby) route on a walk with neighbors on Sunday. (I know, social distancing and all. But no more. For now). Hubby liked the challenge, as there’s moar hills. More hill anyway 😉. Did it again yesterday, just us two. On my second fasting day today. Monday went well, wasn’t really hungry, but all the P.M. food commercials did cause a Pavlov response..... Started and frogged 2 sock toes. I found that I didn’t like the wedge toe that many knitted sock patterns have. One of those frogged attempts was me trying to make a rounder toe, which failed miserably. Then I finally found someone who figured out a round toe, and ever so kindly shared that pattern with the world. So I’m now on attempt #3, and so far it’s going well. So that’s it for now. Hope everyone is doing well with the “social distancing” and “self quarantine”. My hardest thing is wanting (insert food from elsewhere here). But what if they have “it”?
  17. Well, I never thought there’d be a shortage of eggs, milk, bread, pasta, rice, toilet paper........it’s strange times, my friend..
  18. You can barter with it......just sayin. I have a friend that lives in a very small (very very) town, and the stores are empty. She had to barter for milk for her grandbaby.
  19. You’re darn tootin it counts. Esp. when you don’t wanna.......
  20. I worried it was too creepy, but decided Pooh! And it is cute......and I knew you’d like it. 😉
  21. I totally understand this feeling. It’s me, every time I get sick..... A friend of mine had to call here, and waited 4 hours. For a phone consult. Nuts.
  22. I took pictures in my Walmart and got a look from some dude. I just said that this is a big event and I’m gonna document it. I’m pretty sure that my 91 year old grandma is the only one to see rationing or whatever (ww2), until now. It’s weird..... And how much is the press trying to keep us afraid......so much is just like....what? Are you serious?
  23. You’re a good girl, and a blessing to your mama.
