Visiting my parents. Will mostly be outside by the pool, but are considering staying the night for the first time since Christmas. Still makes me very nervous, so we'll see.

Made two batches of these Rice Krispies Treats and they're the best I've had. I'm on a no-bake dessert kick due to laziness.

So many margarita drinkers on here. Never would have guessed.

Going on vacations that weren't camping or Cedar Point.

New SUVs, even if it was just a Ford Explorer.

I rarely have a mixed drink, but when I do it's usually a vodka soda or a Moscow Mule. I don't drink at my house unless we're doing a Friday Zoom happy hour, and even then it's just beer, seltzer or champagne.

Kingdom, one of my favorite series of the last 6 years, is finally on Netflix starting today. I can't wait to rewatch, and I highly recommend it. Jonathan Tucker's performance is excellent.

The St. Lunatics was my favorite answer.

So do I.  Most of us have no clue if we’ll even have jobs lol.  


Blessed times!

I'm about to start The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett, which will be my 26th book of 2020. I was about 20% through the first book of a trilogy earlier this week but I didn't like it at all so I decided to move on.

I suppose it depends on your tolerance for driving, but over 1.5-2 hours will nix a lot of opportunities when you have events that keep you from leaving until the afternoon, or having to be back in the afternoon/early evening for a ball game, party, etc...

Oh, I agree. Ideally I'd want a place closer to 60-90 minutes away, but would go further for the right setup. We don't have kids yet, so it's hard telling what their extracurriculars or other activities will entail. 


My husband's grandparents have a lake house about 25 minutes from us and I have a feeling it will eventually be left to his dad, and then to him. It's a nice place, but it's not right on the water and will need some major improvements if we were ever going to really spend time there. They've had it for almost 40 years and it holds a lot of wonderful memories, so it's something to think about.

My wife works at UC, and has been remote since March. Found out today she’ll be remote the entire fall semester. 

My husband works for U of A and so far has no idea how the fall semester is going to go.

If we ever get a lake house or some other kind of getaway house, I'd want it to be within 2.5-3 hours of where we live. If we can't get there easily and relatively cheaply in order to use it frequently, I just don't see the point.

Two hot dogs and some Ruffles.

Just finished the linked piece. Thanks for sharing it, Fab. I like that his stuff always make you think, regardless of your preconceived beliefs. Like I said, I don't always come to the same conclusion, but I like being challenged in the way that he does it. I feel like I always grow a bit as a human after reading a piece of his.

I'm a huge fan of Elton John's old stuff. Kinda got "meh" with that Candle in the Wind and later stuff.

I like all of Elton's stuff but Billy is my guy.

That had to have been a helluva show

It was excellent. Both played individual sets and then played an entire set together at the end.
