    She signs them all by drawing an eye, a heart, and the letter “U”. She really is too sweet.

    Pretty sure the “Don’t Mess with Texas Women” one is leftover from the ones she used to write to our reps with her concerns.

    Well, I've been making masks like a crazy woman for the past MONTH. OMJG. I can't believe its been 4 weeks straight of masks. and I've been experiencing a bit of burnout, so I'm taking a no mask-making weekend, and it feels so NICE. I took a midday nap, a long shower, did dishes, helped J with the Mother's Day lunches, etc. I am so happy I've been able to help people, but cannot lie, its nice just feeling like me again.

    My dad was bitching about all the stuff being closed, and how as far as pandemics go this one’s pretty wimpy. Then started complaining about Garcetti and Newsom’s measures in a way that made me know exactly which talk radio show he’s been listening to. His first example of government being stupid, overstepping, and hurting small businesses was LA closing nail salons.

    First of all, I had no idea my dad was so emotionally invested in nail salons. Secondly, uh, YEAH that would be a closed business. Kind of close quarters, plus I imagine a lot of the employees’ lungs aren’t in the best shape from the chemicals they breathe daily, so not a great COVID situation. I do feel bad for the businesses, but this is exactly the sort of situation where government aid should step in. At least my disagreement shut him down, but Uuugghhh. He used to be a biologist, ffs. He should know better. Also, my dad worked with chemicals for years, is overweight, and nearly 70. YOU are exactly the sort of person these measures are meant to protect, dude.

    Why are my parents having contractors come over to start assessing a potential kitchen renovation tomorrow?

    What?? I sit here 20 years younger than your folks with a sink with a hole in it patched with silicone to avoid having anyone into my house right now. How do they not understand?

    This pandemic has made me scared of getting old for several reasons, but the biggest is “OMJG am I going to end up with this fucked up thought process too someday”? Very few of our parents are impressing me right now.

    Today I realized all my snacks have morphed into peanut M&Ms. Like there is practically no other snack. Also based on the size and number of bags we’ve bought, we’ve eaten about 10 pounds of M&Ms during this pandemic.

    I got some regular M and Ms to put on sundaes (which is delish) but I have ragrets about not getting peanut.

    How's your Mother's Day bag holding up? I'm ashamed of what's happened over here.

    Completely defeats the purpose of an edible gift if you're forced to share with the person who gave it to you. Gift giving rules 101

    Are peanut butter M&Ms still a thing? Those were the best. If not, no skin off my nose. Reese’s Pieces are better anyway.

    Yes, still a thing

    Yes! That's what my bag of m&ms was. Don't know if C or I had had them before but the dude is clearly hooked.

    But Reeses don't have chocolate, aren't they just peanut butter in a candy shell?

    I may get banned for this but I do NOT care for Reese's Pieces. Sweetened peanut butter makes me want to vom.

    I love peanut butter m&ms but not regular or peanut. I’ll eat the others, but not anywhere nearly as joyful. They are much better than Reese‘s pieces too. We eat them on car trips.
