DAYS 2 - 4: Covered in GOOD reeds

Days 2 - 4 were not the most interesting season of Zach's life - but day 5 deserves it's own separate entry, so there.  

Zachary started day 2 by cutting yesterdays tree in logs and building a small wall. He then learned his first mechanical skill point to put together an old barrel and some kind of pump. Enjoying his hard-earned shower here. (Sorry, NIKE! picture, but he was so happy :pb_lol:)

He explored a forest a bit more and found wild bees. Someday hell be able to steal honey from them without getting hurt, but this is not that day.

Then first animals appeared and Zach tried hunting for first time. He learned he is useless with hunting with spear. I learned I put too many animal spawners in this forest and removed most of them. Zach managed to kill a wolf and a deer with sword. Which meant -

FOOD. Thats right. Zachary got over himself and learned a cooking skill to know how to use grill. No more mushroom and berry snacks, Zach is eating like a man. Homemade hotdogs, yummy.

After first real meal in days, Zach felt like annoying some people for faith. His social bar was low. Almost as low as  townies interest in his crap.

Manly handshake, sure, dude. You are the most masculine male man ever. You hunt. You eat. You flirt with ladies, and they turn you down.

Next few days were almost the same. At one point Zach learned enough mechanical points to put together a swing form an old tire and a rope, and to turn a water tank into hot tub. But otherwise it was pretty boring. Only reed spawner got completely out of control (it's a part of basket weaver set from medieval sims - useful if you pick up reeds and make things from them. Not useful if you are Zachary Ranford.)
At day 4 his lot looked like this:

Zach started to worry a bit. No, not about reeds. His wife will pick them up. The problem was where to get a wife. Townie women were all sane ungodly whores, and he had no electricity, so he couldn'tt order one from internet browse SAHD blogs.  Also, he started to hate hot dogs. Maybe wife could cook something else, like hamburgers and tater tot casserole. 
At day 5 Zachary woke up with completely new wants for him. Instead of flirting, getting married, and having his first kiss, Zach wanted to catch butterflies and roller skate. And he spend a lot of time in his new swing. Was he giving up? Was he turning into manboy, trying to convince himself that he doesn't care anymore? Was it injured pride? Was he just loosing his mind?

      I found this opinion piece from 2012 awhile back, and it seems applicable now. (It's the New York Times, so it might be behind a paywall.)

      Men, Who Needs Them?

      He isn't so much anti-father as he is making a point. 

      Anyway, :my_tongue: to Lori and her fangirls and boys.

      That is a great article.  I love all the butthurt dudes in the comments.  While it contains a lot of science, it's an opinion piece!

      I open most of the jars in our house. I played piano for years and have a better grip.  I'm also more mechanical and enjoy fixing things. I built and installed custom shelving wall to wall in our home office.

      None of that makes me love or respect my husband less (or more!) I have a relationship with him that will last whatever roles we fill as we navigate life because we decide things together in the ways that work best for both of us.

      And despite what Lori thinks of the world -there are many many divorced, single, widowed women doing  - everything -  on our own.   We don't have a team, but we manage.  I think most women would/do. Lori isn't capable and couldn't, and just like her 'I never wanted to work so every female who wants to or does, is wrong and hates God' mindset,  she can't understand that there is a real world where daddy and hubby weren't there to support us all our lives.  She just really  -can't - she can only think we hate God so we deserve what we get.   She, of course, is above all that and always will be, unfortunately.    

       

      Right!  I'm happily divorced, not looking to couple up again, and capable of doing anything the average man can do in my home.  And if I can't I know who to call (i.e., plumber).  Believe it or not, Lori, brawn is not an essential trait for running a home.  It might help sometimes, but it is absolutely not needed.  I'm a petite woman and I assembled absolutely all of my furniture in my house myself.  *Gasp*

      P.S. Unfortunately I am waiting until a friend visits before I can get some heavy lifting done in my closet!  Fortunately it's not a priority.

      My two year and one year anniversaries of my two babies are this week. I found out they died on Aug 25, 2017 and Aug 24, 2018. They were born August 29, 2017 and August 31, 2018. And I just had my new baby on July 2. When I was pregnant, Every day I woke up, I was certain that it was going to be the day she died. Even on the day of her birth, I was convinced she would die in the middle of the CSection. I legitimately have PTSD from my obstetrical experiences from the last two years.

      One thing I try to remind myself is that protecting myself is my job. I can’t go to baby showers anymore and likely never will again. I had to “mute” friends on social media when their pregnancies got to a certain point. Other women aren’t being cruel or hurtful by being pregnant or discussing their experiences. They’re just unaware of the pain that accompanies pregnancy and infant loss.

      I remember reading in The Eternal Bliss Machine, a book about American marriage customs, that nurses at Pocono resorts treated many cases of "honeymoon cystitis" in brides.  

      Do people still go to the Poconos for their honeymoons?  I can remember seeing the ads for resorts with their heart shaped bathtubs.  A few places did have tubs shaped like champagne coupes (that saucer shaped glass).

      They have been abandoned and are now an urban explorers dream.
