Didn't see (couldn't find) a similarly titled thread here so...as the title says..maybe a bit a of a distraction we could all use...

I'll start. I emptied the dish washer last night (actually was early morning so "counts as today"). A few moments ago, Ms Blue hollers "did you empty the dishwasher?" (it's not something I do often...I know, bad husbandry). Me: "yup"...expecting an atta boy

Nope. Dishwasher hadn't been run....

D'oh! We have a flipflop magnet that we got at Wings (50% off) that we put on the dishwasher when it gets started. Helps with the problem of emptying the dishwasher before it runs or running it twice.because you don't remember if you started it.

Let s see, I took a vacation day and raked leaves today. Someone else probably did that too.

Jay did you say POP today, but I guess that's something a lot of the doubters done so it does not count. Wink smiley

I seared fresh tilapia and made a pan sauce out of grapes, shallot, and almond. I served it on a bed of farro and toasted mustard seed.

Cleaned gutters yesterday.

Not that bad of a job using the gutter attachment on my blower/vacuum.

You posted this yesterday, so I'll give yesterday's answer: I ate 1/2 of a pumpkin pie by myself.

Anything in education is stressful these days - thank you for all you do! I'm hearing that other half of the pie calling ;)

Ever thought of entering a hot dog eating contest? Hope I'm not offending, but 1/2 a pie has gotta be like 5% of your total body weight...like I said, impressive!

End of the day, we'll all put on a "few" this time of year, then just work it off after Christmas!

Oh, and two of the grand kids came over today for a bit...oldest (7) has an itchy head....inspect oldest' head....oldest has lice. Lovely. So 2020 :(

I'm a school secretary/keeper of the bandaids/ stand-in mom to all in a very small school. We have been 100% open in-person so far this year, and we are fortunate. We aren't allowing anyone except students and staff in the building this year, so I also run to the door and around the building about 50 times a day, so I should work the pie off soon. As keeper of the bandaids/mom to all, I feel ya on the last line of your post. Good luck!

I have been studying a chapter in my son's Chemistry book and reviewing his quizzes so I can help him study for a test. It's going to be a long day. I've never had Chemistry, but my son is struggling in the class, and my husband isn't here to help him. (Also lecturing him about going to his teacher for help, but the test is tomorrow so that won't help this time).

I like this thread!
