Ponyfan, mine were pretty much like that. they're coming back now that i trimmed off all the dead stems and leaves.

i've been pretty much ignoring my plants since we've been getting some rain lately. and they seem to be doing well. even a couple of the once i thought were dead are trying to make a comeback. not sure what that says about me but i'll take it :D

good luck BC!!

my dad says they found a white spot on the CT scan so my mom needs to have an MRI. there's definitely something wrong. i've been trying to tell them for a few months. i'm trying not to leap to thinking the worst.

good luck on your script cowboyopossum :)

thanks PBW! i haven't heard anything about my mom yet. i'm going to call my dad a little later this morning. i'm thinking they were either tired when they got home or they haven't heard anything definitive yet. for now i need to focus to get through the work day. focusing on something helps me stop thinking the worst

everything went well at the vet. Luna is now on a weight loss diet.

@BC that and the ant bait are how i got rid of ants last time i had them. just FYI do not vacuum up the diatomaceous earth unless you want to make the vacuum overheat. i had to buy a new one :(

my plants are coming back after the cold spell we had. the chives came back right away. so did the mints and oregano after i trimmed off the dead stuff. the basil died off again and the pot it was in is breaking apart. also there are a ton of weeds. a part of me just wants to let them grow and leave the lawn more wild. but it's too much for the dogs to navigate and i don't want to attract snakes.

Thanks Beth.  :)  I'm going to try the egift card soon.

There are fires burning in my state.   Last night there was a really strong burning/smoke smell in the house.  My mom thought something was burning inside the house. Turns out it was the smoke from the fires even though they are several hours away from us.


I thought of you when i saw the fires in the news. glad you're far away from them

not trivial but i just found out my mom's doctor wants her to have a CT scan today. I hope they can find out why she's been having issues walking.

mostly just work today. i also have to take my dog to the vet for a checkup. she gets anxious at the vet so we have to give her pills before her appointments. i had to give her the first round at 3 in the morning so now my sleep schedule is messed up. i'm feeling nauseated. she's also very suspicious about the funny tasting turkey i fed her.

yeah i regret getting rid of my old 90s boombox after i moved everything to MP3s. i was a tech early adopter for so many things back in the 2000s-2010s. but lately everything feels so broken that i'm reverting to analog. i'm a disaffected tech worker now i guess. i had high hopes for tech and now i'm just sad. i don't work for a tech company though. i work for a company that actually makes stuff.

i love the convenience of having all of my music in one place and the variety i get with streaming. i don't think it's all bad. i've definitely found music i never would have known about if it weren't for streaming. i don't miss the way music was when i was in school where you just had to know people who were "cool" enough to introduce you to music or spend hours listening to the radio. but i do hate the data collection and the way streaming platforms prey on artists. especially the more niche artists who will never make money from Spotify, etc.

records are so expensive compared to CDs so i think i'll probably buy some CDs soon too. CDs are way more affordable for albums where i don't necessarily like all of the songs. i just need to find a good cd player.

i also hate, hate, hate the data collection model. every year when i get that spotify wrapped it just reminds me that they're collecting all of my listening habits. it didn't have to be this way. a lot of these tech companies are still burning cash even while selling our data. of course the executives still have more money than god.

i also use a physical planner and notebook now. it's so nice to just pick up a pen and write something down instead of making notes on my computer that always end up getting lost anyway. it's also much faster to just write it down instead of trying to deal with multiple windows.

i have an apple watch but there are so many notifications that it's unwearable. i'm not getting texts or anything fun either. it's junk texts, junk calls, and notifications from my security cameras. heaven forbid one of my neighbors is moving their lawn. going back to an analog watch sounds good at this point. all of the notifications are stressful.

Ponyfan, it's not a big deal to redeem an ecard on Amazon :) Follow the link and it goes to a page with the gift card code, you can copy it with one click and add it to your account via - Account - Payments.


Thanks BC.  Is it better to sign in to Amazon first and then follow the link or click the link and then sign in?  I tried to ask my friend about it and she got a little annoyed at me (she apologized later) because I was asking her how to do it.


sign in first and it should automatically add the gift card to your account
