Today, 6yo didn’t want to go to school.

6yo: Do you wanna know why?

J: yes, why?

6yo: Because it takes my WHOLE day!

I see no lie.


I should go to bed, but if I get out of this chair, I have to take care of the dishes first. Also, this chair is comfy and warm.

The coffee is the delicious this morning.

But I have hit my limit for today and can have no more. 😢

I haven't made a political donation in a while. Until now. Not that it's a lot or anything because it's not. Enough to help, though.

for a kid who doesn’t like seams in their clothes, this tracks.

6yo proudly proclaimed tonight: I LOVE my birthday suit. I don’t want to wear any other clothes.

Me: *looks at outside temperature* uh huh.

While the Amz Fire tablets/FreeTime for the kids have been a “godsend”, they are a nightmare to manage. At least twice per year, I have to completely wipe them.

Literally, if you live in toronto and know where my ass can get scrambled eggs with tomato on rice, please - for the love of god - *tell me*.

... boost pls.

@chigh while I think I have learned more in this app than I did in school as far as reading and writing, I don’t have anyone to practice speaking with, and I’m *really* self conscious speaking aloud. I then get discouraged and can’t think, making learning the language even more difficult.

It has taken me weeks to get through this lesson on German conjunctions on Duolingo. I’m really struggling. I’ll eventually get through it, but I’m afraid when I complete it, I still won’t know how they work.

Please stop with the “at the end of the day”.

I’m begging you.

When do I get to sit around and listen to music all day?

🦑 ☕️ Squid Cafe

Below the thunders of the upper deep,
Far, far beneath in the abysmal sea,
His ancient, dreamless, uninvaded sleep
The Kraken sleepeth: faintest sunlights flee
About his shadowy sides; above him swell
Huge sponges of millennial growth and height;
And far away into the sickly light,
From many a wondrous and secret cell
Unnumber'd and enormous polypi
Winnow with giant arms the lumbering green.
There hath he lain for ages, and will lie
Battening upon huge sea-worms in his sleep,
Until the latter fire shall heat the deep;
Then once by man and angels to be seen,
In roaring he shall rise and on the surface die.
— "The Kraken" by Alfred Lord Tennyson, 1830
