  1. Yesterday it kinda hit me, 2 weeks of MIL, busy weekends, busy work, no rides, few runs, I need a break. I told my boss I’m taking Friday & Monday off and may not even go in today… I need some down time for sure and the next few days should be quiet. Since Covid hit I haven’t taken any real time off, just long weekends here & there. I’m thinking I’m due for a real vacation even if it’s a staycation.

  8. MIL leaves Wednesday so we took her to the beach last night as we have the kids coming over tonight to say good bye. As we are standing on the bluffs she says how she understands why we live here. My wife said you realize I’m never ever going to live inVA right? MIL says well then I need to live here!!!! My wife and her mom had a stern heart to heart no BS discussion which was needed and I won’t bore you with while I just enjoyed the view.

  10. It is again this year and she is awaiting dates to accomplish it next summer. She wants to get married before we lose any of the remaining grandparents so has decided to have a ceremony this year, then the dress up and reception next year as it is all paid for. Talking to my boss about this, he suggests a destination wedding. I said, the aging family members don't want the hassle of travel so he tells me to take the plane. Just not to Europe. To fly out to Vancouver and back is about $50,000.00. Nice wedding gift. Would you accept it?

  11. I don't discount questions you may have in other areas, but I can honestly say that I have made some real friends here, including a number that I've met in person. People that have expanded my view of the world and exposed me to different careers, locations and lives. I've also gotten support here during a variety of difficult times including the passing of both my parents. Plus there are plenty of times the forum has kep me laughing when I'm stressed or bored at work. In the grand scheme of the world, this may not matter, but it certainly has made a difference and matters to me. And

  18. We painted two walls green and are working our way around the rest of the living areas with a fresh coat of the same color that’s in the kitchen. I have to replace a lampshade, hang a mirror to reflect the view out the front picture window, hang artwork, and find a desk organizer that will hold our laptops.

  22. As a variation with the “brush with greatness” the situation where initial reaction as you turn it down or don’t even consider…then after the years/decades look back and think “if only”. Back in the mid 70’s, I was a juvenile probation officer in Daytona Beach. A good friend and co-worker was a good friend with Ron Rice since childhood and school, with whom we associated in social functions. Ron was a lifeguard and chemistry major who mixed up suntan lotion concoctions in his garage, initially selling from his lifeguard stand, reinvesting profits to ramp up production supplying local shop

  24. mr. and I decorated in “Early Marriage.” We had the requisite papasan chair, hand-me-down sofa and lots of open space. I had to smile a little when @Wilbur said that his daughter bought lots of Pyrex. Before mr. and I were married, the church gave me a shower, and everyone gave either a Pyrex dish, bowl, or a baking sheet. We didn’t have much of anything, but we could still bring casseroles to pot luck every Sunday night.

  26. My middle son was playing with a BB gun and shot out all the windows in the garage. I showed him how to measure for the glass and we went to the hardware store and bought new glass and putty and points. Then I had to go to work. I told him we could finish tomorrow. The next morning I was surprised to see he had replaced the glass all by himself and it looked nice. A couple days later the new glass fell out and broke. Then I found the unopened box of glazer’s points. I asked him why he didn’t use points. He said he didn’t know what they were for. Second try I showed him how to use points and he

  32. The "best" thing is already done. Getting my daughter ready for daycare. Wife has returned to office partially. She is there Tuesday and Wednesday. So she's up and out the door by 5:45 or so. I make her lunch the night before so I usually get up and make coffee and load the car with her stuff. Then sit back and begin working waiting for the lil one to get ready. She's still a bit put out not seeing mommy when she wakes up but we make it fun and I get her a pre-breakfast snack (breakfast at daycare), get her dressed, styled hair (largely unsuccessfully), pack her bag and get her in th

  33. I got up at 5am, got a pot of coffee started, did a bit of work then walked down to the dock to wait for the sun to rise. Listened to the night creatures heading to bed and the day creatures begin to stir Watched some sort of raptor swoop down and catch a fish in it’s claws and fly off. That may be it. BTW, I could get used to this

  34. Being at home, stress levels down a little, and able to cook healthy soups, etc. instead of nuking frozen lasagna, etc. has made a big difference. If I have healthy dinners even just 3 days a week, it has a big effect on keeping my blood sugar levels down when I have high-carb dinners on some other days. Today, I'm going to the store to get the ingredients for Martha Stewart's Savory Fall Stew - I'll make 5 quarts, 6 big bowls' worth - and freeze 2 to intersperse between occasional sub shop suppers along with the 2 bowls of chicken soup and 2 bowls of ham & bean & veggies sou

  35. OF course. One is about chess. At the beginning of August 1974, after the first year of grad school at IIT, I wasn't getting paid my $325/month as a Teaching Assistant in the summer but had to stay in Chicago to do research full-time. I estimated I had about $7 to spend for non-essentials during the last month before the Fall Semester began and I'd be getting paid again in September. I walked into a used book store and there, on a shelf, was Chess for Match Players by former British Champion and International Master William Winter. I skimmed through the book and there were all tho

  39. My son left work early to go to visiting hours for a really cool guy from the church he used to pastor. It just happened to be in Newcastle so he stopped in the hospital to see how I was doing. I rang for the nurse and asked her if she could find out when I could get out of here. The doctor came in and said as soon as they can get the IV’s out I was free to go. I don’t even remember signing any paperwork. Maybe the cancer center took care of that? My son drove me up to my car (a five minute drive) and I drove home (a half hour/forty five minute drive). I feel good this morning.

  45. I'm glad you asked this question. When I go out on my own, I limit my spending. But when the kids pay, I shoot for the moon. I'll pick the most expensive things on the menu. They grumble and complain but that's what kids are for. Especially that bastard son in law of mine.
