    Ughhhh I am grateful I’m not expected to be in any of these calls. It’s hard enough to keep from being bitchy when I’m only hearing one half of them haha

    Mine was all "oh it's so sad they're taking down statues that were HISTORICAL" in 2017 when Confederate statues were coming down so I can't fuckin wait to see what she thinks of the one in Bristol being taken down today

    I always put myself in another room because everything they say makes my heart rate go way up.

    Haha I usually do too. In this case I was lying in the couch with major back pain and was afraid to move.

    Oh, thank you! It’s been going on for about a month now. Some days are worse than others - I can’t wait until I can get into PT.

    My sister and I made a deal that if my dad didn't call me to wish me a happy birthday on Saturday, we didn't have to bring him brunch as planned yesterday. Needless to say, we did not go see him. He hasn't called to ask why we didn't show. What are the odds he even knows what day it is?

    Around this time last year I posted about my 21 year old social medial influencer cousin. She was living with a 30 year old who had two toddlers from a previous relationship. She sold It Works and posted constantly on social media about being a step Mom. Lots of staged photos and in MANY of them she would be wearing matching outfits with the little girl. She and that guy split last year and she post a long thread about how she wanted to try to make it work for the kids but eventually it got too hard.

    She ran off to Indonesia in the fall to find herself. She posts on instagram all day. Maybe a photo or video an hour. She has a small following but not enough to have sponsors so I have no idea how she supports herself. Her posts are all about love and positive energy solving all of the worlds problems. In March when Trudeau flat out told Canadians to get the fuck home she refused, claiming she was safer there than she would be here.

    Last night she posted a 5 minute long video. It is a clip show of pictures and videos of her on her trip with music and a narration in the background. Lots of flowery sentences about discovering herself. The video is also a pregnancy announcement. The reveal is that the narration is actually a letter she is reading to "Little one".

    I can send you the video if you would like. I don't want to post it here in case she ever searches her name and finds the chicken
