    We have a metal support pole in the middle of our basement and the number of times I have hit that pole is astounding. Couldn't do it on purpose if I had to.

    ...support pole?

    Not...another type of pole?

    Yeaaaaah, you hit that pole! :wink:

    But actually we had one in our basement crawl space and it’s a marvel I still have any brain cells at all for how often I ran into it as a child.

    My scrub pants were a little loose all morning and I thought "ooh, maybe I lost a pound or two!"

    I forgot to tie the drawstring :bored:

    I spent a bunch of time reorganizing some of the kitchen cabinets.

    Right when I finished, I realized that I hadn’t made any space for baby bottles, the whole reason I was organizing.

    Put some poppyseed salad dressing in my little to go squeezer so I could use it on my wrap today. Handed the bottle to rooster to put back in the fridge. Apparently it expired in 2018? I ate it anyway.

    I’m pretty sure I’ve eaten expired salad dressing more in my life than not expired, so hopefully you are good too lol!

    The thing is, I threw away all opened dressing when we lost the fridge contents after the tornado. This was opened in the past two months. When did I buy it?!

    Stuff with preservatives that's completely sealed is shelf stable way past that date, so you're good . But yea I feel similarly ashamed of how long it takes me to use things up and how I'm still constantly buying food because I need x,y,z.

    I just learned how to how to go back on Insta stories. And like a week ago I figured out I could skip forward by just tapping it :bored::no:

    It's a good skill to have in case your daughter insists on watching @megatron's story over and over again. Like, obsessively.

    It's a good skill to have when you accidentally skip past something you were trying to see, or you were reading too slowly like a grandma and you need to go back.

    @Apples&Oranges don't know if you know this but if you press & hold on stories they stay until you lift your finger

    I know how to skip but not how to rewatch. How do you go back and watch again?

    Or if it's moved to the next persons story swipe back (like swipe toward the right).

    It is not intuitive at least to me. A week or two ago A's aunt sent me a PM on there asking how to make the story stay so she could read a longer meme I had shared. I share a lot of stories and felt really bad it has taken her this long to ask for that help, she sounded really down about it haha.

    Both D and I had a struggle getting the car seat off the base to clean it. It’s been 5 years!

    Oh no! I just moved mine in the garage yesterday since it had been a couple of weeks. It felt good to sit in it. Miss u, car. Did you need a jump?

    I needed a jump. TG is a CAA member though so it doesn't cost us anything (beyond his monthly premium) and the tech was here in 15 minutes. When we called we were given instructions on how to make things safe for the tech, which was nice. I put TG's membership card in my windshield wiper, put the hood up and then sat in the drivers seat with the window cracked so I could communicate. It was pretty easy.

    I've been debating about registering for the local humane society 5k (which I did last year and was so fun). It's a small race and it's at the end of May so I thought maybe, possibly, it might be able to take place. Hem and haw, hem and haw, then the state Dem convention was the same day and I was elected a delegate so I couldn't go. Then the convention got canceled so I could go, but with all the corona stuff going on, I was on the fence about paying to register and having the race not happen. Hem and haw, more hem, more haw. Well I got an email today to registered runners saying the race is going virtual. Huh? Apparently I registered for this race on 6/1/19 (i.e. right after running it last year) :lol: Howwwww much of my brain space has been taken up with debating this decision that was moot on every level?!?
