  1. 2001 in April I joined because of the comics discussions. Stayed for the friendships!
  2. That right there is my biggest fear. I come home and my laundry room is right off my patio. Before I even go in I have a bathrobe on a hook and strip down in my laundry room and wash my clothes in hot water before I enter the house and shower like I'm a nurse working a covid unit. My hands are red from washing them eleventy billion times a day. But so far we're doing good. I've been tested three times this week and my sore throat is more from sinus drainage.
  3. This is why I am dragging my feet on moving. EXACTLY why. The stress will cause me a meltdown.
  4. Accidentally hitting a pothole and losing a hubcap.

  6. I guess Washington Football Team for tonight. I hope I can watch it tonight! Some guy I took a check order from last night told me the Cowboys almost beat Tampa. That was a good game. He's a Giants fan.
  7. Gamevet. Those are San Antonio prices and yes! The bedrooms are tiny ha.
  8. HA. The resort had some sort of issue with the internet. Not sure why. Dad thinks they were with a crappy provider. Turns out it was Satellite. I had 20 messages about school on Monday when we finally showed up in Kerrville to head home.
  9. promise this is the first time this weekend I have had access to the internet. My parents surprised me with a surprise weekend vacation in Hunt Texas and internet was super spotty. I fished and swam and came home tired just now. If it's okay I will list my picks (I swear I have not heard any radio games or watched any tv)!

  10. OMG! A three point kick! DAMN IT!
  11. I am a mask nazi at school. I will send a kid to OCS (On campus suspension) if they don't wear it all day properly. And we talk all the time about the action of washing your hands and I often say "Now let us practice washing our hands!"

    Ida!

    Hopefully when they do the repairs for all the infrastructure and rebuild the power grids they do it WAY better than before. This is why I can't live in LA to FL states. A remember Hurricane Andrew and how people went to help back then in Florida and how they had no electricity for days. Those states when it's humid and hot and you live in them and have no electricity? Plus guns? HA! San Antonio maybe hot but at least we sometimes get a dry heat. Now they're telling those people no power until maybe September 29 and it's 100% humidity without electricity? I'm outta there.
  13. Some time ago when this first hit the news a NPR radio guy was talking to a marine who served there. He said ask an Army guy and he'd have a different opinion than him because the reasons we were in Afghanistan where to kill Bin Laden. The Taliban were his hiders and protectors. This marine corps guy was like we got Bin Laden and we no longer need to be there. We should have gotten the fuck out. But he was also pointing out that because we were there so long we established relationships and made it so when we did get out of there it was going to be messy no matter what. Which totally makes sen
  14. I'm starting the same process. I need to clean my patio and make some repairs! We finally got the laundry room ceiling fixed from the winter fun. Dad's going to help me do a dump run when we start painting the condo. I've got to get it sell ready.
  15. OH GOD. I couldn't live with that. My sister is a huge mess maker. I know it's her brain but I come home from working two jobs and the last thing I want to do is pick up empty pill bottles, piles of used tissues, wipe the counter, do the recycling and clean the bathroom while she's watching pluto tv on her phone laying in her bed. It's taking all my strength not to lash out because she's got mental issues but at the same time I'm at my breaking point because this is stuff she can do while she's LAYING AROUND THE HOUSE ALL DAY. But her life is stressful and she needs to smoke cigarettes. That g
  16. Texas hate. I donated to afghan refugees!

    Ida!

    Or this state offers some conveniences you can't get in other states! LOL
  18. Yup. That's what we did with Nan's house. It was worth it to let someone else do it. A lot less to worry about afterwards.

    I am mostly posting this as documentation so a few years later if we're still around you can gauge world/US events based on the crap we posted here. It's got more wind that Katrina did but I realized something about the US. We worked on building up the canals and dams and such to strengthen them but working on the power grid? OMG why would the US do that? We really have hit our zenith and are on our way down if it will be weeks before New Orleans gets power back. Look what happened to Texas when we had a weeks worth of snow and ice and freezing temps. We definitely are poorly run and prio
  20. I am kicking myself I didn't buy way back a year and a half ago. The same small three bedroom 1200 square foot new houses I looked at back then at $179,000 are now $215,000. Only high end houses seem to get price cuts. But ones in the middle area are like over priced. I could buy a shit hole as our former president coined still for like 30K but will it have floors and walls? LOL
  21. Also OMG I'm waiting until this housing market cools. It occurred to me that if I sell my condo now I'd get 100K for 571 square feet but the house I will buy will also be WAY over priced and if I need to sell it in the future I will owe more than it's worth for a while for the new house. I hate this housing market soooooooo bad.
  22. My step-mom says you can go to that line but it will look ugly as hell until it grows out at the top where you cut it because it will be all bare stumps. She said to just shape it a bit where it's still leafy because it's not that bad and you want it to just be good enough to sell the house. Basically just round it a bit at the top and along the bottom but not too far so you still have some leaves and no brown. It also creates a good barrier to the house on the side. Let the ppl who buy it sort that out.
  23. I just read this story. And it's amazing and gives me hope that Americans are not as stupid. Operation Pineapple Express: https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/us-special-operations-vets-carry-daring-mission-save/story?id=79670236
