Life update...



The only thing wrong with life atm is not being able to keep FJ open in my head in some kind of virtual browser.  Miss you guys! 

So almost a month into the new gig...


after a much needed (modified)


from my old circle of hell...

Although there is some stupid sports thing called the World Series that someone's pact with the devil got the Cubs into which prompted my dogs to ask me to post this for them...


and I had a weird dream which made me look up sappy quotes...apropos of nothing.  Who knew Rashida Jones was so wise?

      Gwen seemed to adore Joe- very over-the-top adore.  Maybe the video is right, that she wanted more presence on social media, etc.  Joe did seem to be playing a role.  Then the engagement and wedding videos were not received the way Gwen thought they would be...a poor script...

      If Elizabeth marries an actor next that will be very telling...

      I live near a town pronounced El do RAY do.  I've stopped cringing when I hear it, but it was a struggle at first.

      From Missouri, I offer

      New Madrid = “New MAD-rid”

      Versailles = “Ver-SALES”

      Courtois = “CORD-away”

      And just one from Illinois bcz I’ve gotta run

      Cairo = “KAY-row”

      We are in ME.



      And that reminds me - there are only 16 more shopping days until the 22nd anniversary of Gary's salvation, on JOOlah 11. Make sure you have weens in the house!

      Whether or not they are the red weens in ME is up to you.

      I just realized that their youngest is 3. He's probably either out of diapers or close to it. Could it finally be the first time in Jill's life that she isn't changing 37 diapers a day!?!? Congrats, Jill. You have made it to the Promised Land.

      He’ll be 4 in a fortnight, so I expect you’re right. I imagine this is a time of conflicting feelings for Jill and Derrick, where they’re getting a taste of what parenting slightly older, more independent kids is like, but also now that Derrick has finished law school, if they want a third it might be time to start trying (if they haven’t already). They may be weighing up whether to have another or enjoy the next stage of the boys’ lives and for Jill especially, think about other interests to start to pursue with the time she’ll have when both boys are in school. But she seems to love babies.

       I may just be projecting myself onto them here - my youngest is 4, and although we decided before she was born that she would be the last, it’s always been a bit of a “head over heart” decision for me. As she gets older I find myself pursuing more of my other goals: writing, music, a PhD, a new job. I appreciate the extra time and freedom of this stage of life, playing with the kids or reading to them or baking with them, but being able to just say “can you get dressed and brush your teeth” rather than do it all for them. At the same time, when friends have babies it’s always a bit bittersweet, I miss being pregnant and having newborn cuddles, and I LOVE being “auntie Smee” to them. So with Jill’s siblings having babies that she may not have a lot of involvement with, I can see it being a hard decision to make for them.

      Good grief, he's worse than Bro. John Shrader.  Except RC, Jr. skipped the chicken farm and library.

      Does anyone have a success story for repelling insects away from your home?
      Last year we moved to a new home that is next to a forested area. It's a gorgeous community, and I knew going in that insects and just nature in general would be more a part of daily life. So when lady bugs and tiny little ants and such make their way into our home, it's not a big deal. They mostly just stay by the windows from where they came in and don't venture further in. I figure putting up with it is just part of living here. 
      However, the problem comes when a wasp or bee finds its way in, or big gigantic ants. And they wander farther into the home. I'm especially concerned once we get a dog (I've had dogs before, and they've all loved chasing bugs around and trying - sometimes successfully - to gobble them up!). I honestly don't know why they try to come inside. We are clean and don't leave food/crumbs around (we have a robo vaccuum that goes every morning). We don't have water sitting out (but we will once we have a dog! another concern...). Maybe it's the temperature? I feel bad because if they don't get squished, they just run out of food and water and die. Sometimes I talk to them like a human, beinng them to go back outside where there's plenty of plants and water and they can live! LOL!

      My fiance got traps a few weeks back and I felt SO bad. I don't WANT them to die, and neither does fiance either, but I don't think he knew what else to do. But they didn't even work. So I'm wondering if anyone has some good tips, advice, or suggestions on non-toxic ways to repel these little creatures? Not only for my own sake, but for theirs. I wish they could understand that they will just wither away once they get inside. I've heard of putting mint or specific flowers near windows, but I wonder if that really works? And I'm sure it simply attracts other types of wildlife....

      Anyways, I'd appreciate any help!

      I survived ... Ish. I'm all moved again, another 1500 miles from where the cats and I were living before. I'm in the new apartment, and kitties are adjusting well. I've only cried 6 times since Saturday! #progress.
      By the way, sorry about the summer logo swap taking its sweet time. Real life was a little too much and it got forgotten.

      A happy summer solstice to all northern hemisphere FJers! And a happy winter solstice to all southern hemisphere FJers! (I know it's already Monday is Australia, so I'm late for most of you.)

      ETA--Oh! I just checked, and the winter solstice is at 1:31 PM on Monday, June 21 in Eastern Australia Time. So, for once the time zones worked in my favor. I'm not late!

      I'm so angry at the Bishops right now. Shit like this is why I left the Catholic church. They play politics so blatantly.  I hope this convinces more people to leave.
