The kids are home from school until next Monday and my god, today has been a VERY long day. A while ago I posted something whiny on Twitter about the length of our Thanksgiving break and I got a response from someone, a new mom, who seemed a little … dismayed, I guess? that I was dreading the time off. Maybe she was staring down the grim barrel of the brutally endless-feeling newborn days and thinking, wait, this shit doesn’t get better? MULLIGAN. But I’m thinking most of you with school-age kids are with me on how a big shift in routine is just rough going, right? A school holiday isn’t like a weekend. It’s many consecutive hours in a row of children acting restless and obnoxious and generally making it really hard for me to do the crap I have to do because hi, I’m not on vacation. Plus JB’s parents are staying with us later this week so I feel like I’m caught in this ridiculous Möbius strip of trying to clean in preparation for visitors while the children systematically undo all of my efforts while adding a little extra clutter/dirt as they go.

In unrelated news I went through and organized my Stuff I Like page, which houses — wait for it — information about stuff I like. When I come across something I really feel like recommending, I post it on the sidebar for a while, then eventually move it to this page. Most items are things I bought from Amazon, and they include an affiliate link. I use any affiliate funds towards other things I buy from Amazon, which I sometimes recommend if they’re awesome enough. So basically it works like this:


I want to say I can hardly believe it’s almost Thanksgiving already, but I feel like I’ve been seeing Christmas decorations and trees shared on Instagram for at least two or three weeks now. Those must be fake trees, right? Because I’m pretty sure if I put one up in November I’d have a giant pile of brown needles by December 25th.

What are you doing for the holiday? JB’s brother and his wife are hosting the meal this year, and all I have to do is bring the rolls. No traveling! No cooking! NO DISHES.

    How can writing down debts ever benefit a creditor, the person to whom those debts are owed? The answer lies in the fact that if a debt is not going to get paid off in full anyway, the creditor锟斤拷s best interest lies in simply maximizing the value of what he does end up receiving. Let锟斤拷s say you owe me $1,000 but then you come and tell me that you can锟斤拷t afford to pay me back. You锟斤拷re faced with a choice. Either you empty out your checking account and I take everything in it, which is $250, or

    You got it exactly right. The problem with using replay to fix calls (in any sport) is that you suddenly invent this whole new set of rules. Whoever worried about a wide receiver touching the ground with the football after he keeps both feet in bounds on a great catch? Well,Michael Kors Outlet, we worry about it now because of the NFL鈥檚 stupid rules interpretations. Baseball is doing the same thing with the 芦transfer禄 rule. Indefensible.

The last time I took him to T@rget before he had his learners permit (he was about 3), I had him in the cart with a 9 pack of toilet paper and a big can of bug spray, along with other assorted items. He was so quiet and GOOD! For the love of gawd, I should have known something was up. By the time I got to the check out, I discovered he鈥檇 poked a pretty good sized hole in the wrapping on the TP and proceeded to empty the entire can of bug spray into package. The 16 year old gave me a look and said 鈥測ou still want this stuff, right?鈥? 鈥淥f course鈥? I said.
