  1. Unless we miscarry, which is always a high possibility, we're gonna have another kid.

  2. Work is work, no matter what you do. Even the best jobs have shitty parts. Plus you work for yourself, so we all know your boss is a dick.

  3. I HATE the YOU WILL RESPECT ME attitude many adults have when working with children. What was she expecting children do? This is a problem everywhere. Leading a group of anyone, especially groups of children, is challenging and takes a lot of training and experience. It is impossible to get a good sub...it is less impactful to break up classrooms and divide them out into other rooms than it is to have a bad sub. This weekend we drove an hour and a half to Telluride. Talk about a town that is dripping in gold coins but is essentially a ghost town. It is surreal. Half the stores are

  4. Tomorrow, I interview for another job in a different department and location. It means a steep pay cut for me if I get it, but I hope the stress level is less. Mental health before money I guess. Wish me luck. LOL.

  6. Didn’t really want to make a new topic so I thought I would post this here. After nearly 4 years of hard work, literal blood, sweat and tears, failure and self doubt, finally came the culmination of a black belt for my son a couple weeks ago. I’m soooo fucking proud of him. I can’t even describe how great it felt seeing his Instructor finally tie that black belt around him after years of taking him to karate 4 days a week and endless tournaments and wiping away all of the blood, tears and snot off him from sparring matches, wins, losses and failed tests.

  7. If you can afford it, less stress is worth a pay cut. My dad worked a factory job, but there was a point where he got a new boss who made his life miserable. We could see it in his blood donor card - his blood pressure shot up and was super high for three years, until the boss left, and then it dropped. But just those three years helped kill him early. It absolutely isn’t worth it to kill ourselves, especially when just to make someone else more money.

  9. Sticks are awesome. I’ve never known anyone who has lost an eye to a stick, and I totally encourage imaginative play. The only stick rules are not hitting each other and sticks stay outside. And good to know about Roblox vs Minecraft. We’re hesitant to do much in the way of video games, mainly because Louis could easily get sucked in, but I’m always considering Minecraft. But right now he’s happy with Legos, so why go to digital Legos? It’ll happen soon , though, I’m sure. Plus it’s cheaper than always wanting new Lego sets.

  10. My kids love sticks. There are a ton of parents who freak out about this and don't let their kids play with sticks because someone is going to lose an eye. Look, I let my wild ass kids play with sticks. I've given up that fight. No one has even gotten poked. Just let kids play with sticks. Also I am pretty sure that letting my daughter sign up for Roblox is the greatest parenting mistake I've ever made. Minecraft is fine. Roblox has tons of inappropriate for age content, crappy parental controls, and everyone is trying to chat and friend request my 10-year old.

  11. It sucks. I would much rather start my day earlier than stay late, though. It sucks even more because there are people who live in other time zones who aren't handling these states. It makes a ton more sense to have someone in Mountain time handle the west coast. And people get understandably pissed about not being able to reach me. I was okay with doing this short term, but long term it really sucks.

  13. I’m a little nervous about having 4 kids in our house, and I don’t think we’re in a position to get a bigger house unless we’re willing to move farther away, which wouldn’t be bad in terms of work, since I’m permanently remote, but we’ve really settled into the area. We’re settled in a church and school that are just a few blocks away, so moving would have to be in the neighborhood to really meet our needs. And short of winning the lottery, we’re not getting there. We could probably finish some work on our house and sell for $300k or more, which is more than double what we owe on our mortgage,

  14. My boys are going as Mario and Luigi. The Yoshi costume is cheap and in stock, but I want to be Bowser...which will set me back over a $100. Ugh. I am going to end up being Yoshi.

  15. Saw Halloween Kills Thursday night. Enjoyed the kills even though the victims seemed extra stupid in this. Of course stupid victims is a popular horror trope, so, while I'm also no horror enthusiast, they felt extra moronic. And everything in and around the hospital felt boring, slow, and contrived. Despite all that, I still had fun watching it.

  16. It has been leaf blower season next door for about six weeks now. Last weekend they courteously blew the leaves off our driveway ... and left them piled in our yard. Today they started blowing the leaves around and around their yard (and yes, both of them are outside with the big ol' airplane engine TornadoEF5 model blowers they need for their postage-stamp-sized yard) at 8:00 am and they're still going strong at 9:40. Also neighborlady pauses to yell instructions at neighborman who's happily puffing away like The Big Bad Wolf hopped up on meth and steroids. She has a voice that sounds like a

  19. I was brushing my teeth for bed last night and I hear a crash and "Oh GOD!" come from the kitchen. The refrigerator door fell off the fridge as Tina was reaching in to get iced tea. Like literally. I am functioning on 2 hours of sleep because today is dialysis day so I was up at 4 AM. Tina and I both of dental anxiety and the way the run those offices makes dental anxiety worse. Like if you schedule an extraction at 9 AM at least have the decency to schedule the tech/dental assistant who is going to show up to do it.

  20. I am also wondering if your faith plays a role. Some people are more comfortable with death because of their faith and/or the beliefs of the deceased. Leading up to my uncle passing, he was firm that he was unafraid of death because of his faith. He faced it fearlessly and with open arms. His family was still heartbroken but I think it did help somewhat. It was a comfort to me, although I wasn't that inner circle. Also, if you're not afraid of death yourself, I think that also shapes how you mourn. I mean, you did cry about your dad. Its not like you never shed a single tear.

  30. Nightly stopped being a popculture discussion board years ago, it's down to just a handful of people who like talking to each other about movies and stuff. Trolls have all outed and flamed themselves out. None of us are interested in being an angst-filled anonymous place to yell at each other. So you come back 15 years later, still acting like a teenage edgelord, and you're mad that we're now just a small group of friends who are are adults talking about adult things, and it's our fault and we suck? Have you really run out of places to troll and you'd hoped we'd take your bait? If y
