    My friend texted me pictures of charred bones she uncovered in her backyard and I think she’s freaked out. Never thought I’d text someone pictures of cow skeletons as reassurance that they don’t have a murderer in their neighborhood.

    Ok but I’m pretty sure my first thought would also be worst case scenario “OMJG-a-body-is-in-my-backyard-and-there-is-a-murderer-on-the-loose-nearby”, even knowing how unlikely that is lol.

    We went to J’s hunting cabin this morning to ride around on the side by side ATV and spread corn. He dumped the bag of corn and was like “let’s head back.” I was confused because I thought we were going to like throw it around or something so I made him stay and throw dried corn on the cob at trees with me. :lol:

    Serial posting...

    I just saw this site on the Bee and wanted to share. Apparently I'm one of 24 people in the US with my name!

    Hm, 2 with my maiden name and 2 with my married name and it looks like it’s combining my last name with the same without the space.

    There seems to be 99+ people with my name. My last name isn’t uncommon but I rarely meet anyone with my first name so I’m a little surprised.
    My first name is used as a nickname for other names so most people I meet with my name are using it as a nickname. People always assume mine is a nickname.

    I just realized my main online id is old enough to drink as of this year. I feel double old now.

    I'm dealing with insomnia and adjusting my RLS med regimen. I don't remember falling asleep in bed last night, but my memory is crystal clear on waking up freezing cold on the living room floor with my hair in a messy ponytail around 3am. o_O

    I think UPS is walking my package to me. It left Nashville very early Wednesday morning and still hasn’t made it to Oakland. Estimated delivery was today (it’s Surepost). It’s not an important package but it’s fun Halloween lights and I’m itching to put them up. Maybe they’ll rent a bicycle for the last leg of the trip. :lol:

    I just went off on Ryan’s cousin on FB. Ryan’s mom has been posting a lot lately and some of it is political. The cousin is a Trump supporter and constantly argues with her and is just rude. She posted about voter suppression and he basically asked a question about how is the GOP suppressing voting. I fucking lost it. I told him to go do his own research and that she shouldn’t have to tell him all the ways it’s happening. I called him privileged for not understanding that it happens because he kept telling her that everyone should have an ID and they aren’t hard to get. He’s fucking ignorant and I told him that too. I did it all without cussing so I’m kinda proud of myself. I PM’d Ryan’s mom to apologize if I caused trouble but I couldn’t stay silent anymore. I can’t stand that side of the family. The cousin’s whole family- mom, dad and siblings are Trump supporters. We don’t talk to them and I wish Ryan’s mom would cut them off too.

    Yeah I’m trying hard not to tell my cousin’s wife that she’s trash. More for my own mental health because I don’t have the energy to spend on her.

    Unsubscribe. Seriously. When I had FB I unfollowed my cousin’s husband because he wasn’t going to change and I love her. Easier to just not know.

    I unfriended him. I was going to block him but then he can’t look at my comment and get pissed off anymore. I saw a notification that he commented back but I said I wasn’t going to go back and forth with him and I meant it. I didn’t look at the comment.

    Our local zoo is open 365 days a year and they just opened ticket reservations through Thanksgiving so I reserved my tickets to go while J is (most likely) at work on Thanksgiving. I went last year on Christmas too when J was working. The crowds are better and I don't have to sit around alone!

    Pro tip for spouses - wait until your nurse is out of the room before telling your beloved, "SEE! I told you that you were being crazy!!"

    Alternatively, refrain from ever saying, "See? I told you ..."

    My body is not used to sitting at a desk on Zoom for 3 1/2 hours straight every day. My neck and shoulders are so sore/painful. Anyone know any good stretches I can do or anything else that would help prevent the pain? I’m trying to be aware of how I’m sitting but my setup isn’t great so no matter what, my posture is suffering (but maybe someone has ideas that I can use to change this).

    Stretches that might help

    Also, the perimeter of the shoulder blade on your dominant hand side tends to get super tight. Don't just focus on between the shoulder blades.
