How much longer are we stuck with this POS?

As a beer person, I was surprised to find out that I like Moscow Mules! Who would have known? I have never gotten into Ruth Ware, although she is someone I should like! We're reading Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng for next month. I'm watching the Olympics too and starting to get a bit more interested in it. Nothing better to do right now. :(

It seems like everyone I know has one, and they are finding all sorts of cool uses for them. I'm not very motivated since I cook for one. It seems like more trouble than it's worth.

That is beautiful! I too am all thumbs when I try something new, so good for you for persisting. Hope your BC discussion is great!

I'm so sorry about the continuing eye issues; that must drive you bat shit crazy! Quinn is adorable and looks very much like Nate. He seems like a happy baby! I too am distraught over what is happening in our country, and starting to feel hopeless. :(

This memo is giving the GOP traction with their ignorant base, and it scares me. I'm starting to lose hope that any of these scandals will matter.

What a delightful surprise to see you back! The festivities sound wonderful. I wish I could knit. Ashley is great at it, but I don't have the coordination.

The level of hypocrisy is staggering. I honestly cannot believe it.

This is a huge, and discouraging list, among many others. I'm starting to despair that any of these misdeeds will stick to Mr. Teflon. :(

You are absolutely correct.

My mind is blown that he would say something like that. Why am I still surprised? sigh

What a very special Christmas! I'm more zonked emotionally than physically, more people around than I'm used to, and a lot more activity. I loved it, but it was tiring. It sure was fun to have other people in the house, especially at night. Whenever we talk about our favorite all-time Book Club books, Round House comes up. An amazing read.

He is so utterly adorable, and I love the way he looks at his parents (and you) and also the adoration in your faces when you hold him.

I think there is more like a 99% chance.

Fascinating genealogy stuff! I wasn't a bit interested when I was younger either. I should have been writing down my grandparents' stories. Love your quiche, and your crust making skills far outshine mine. :)

I am eagerly awaiting Pullman's next book--wish we didn't have to wait so long! The beauty of finding his trilogy late in the game was that I could read them immediately. Did you recommend them to me originally or was it the opposite? Quinn is so adorable! I bet you're getting excited to see him!(and his parents too of course)

Trump and his supporters are dismantling this country one agency/step at a time. It is terrifying and disheartening.

An adorable photo, but he is growing up TOO FAST! Ashley flies in on December 17th too. :)

November has been a depressing month for me as well. The news, the weather, the lack of dates, the many memories from past holidays. I want to bury my head in a book and never come out. I love the Pullman books!!

My normal activity seems to be high, especially when I run and then walk later. (which Ive been doing since retirement) I just do not want to get obsessive. Already I see a bit of issue until I get to 10k and then I relax! LOL

He is growing so fast, and looks more and more like Nate. What an impishly adorable little guy!! They sure have some great outfits for him too. xoxo

Wonderful photo and video! Nate is beaming. xoxo

Wow, Nate is a scary clown! So glad that you have the security of the generator. I hate power outages, but can weather them OK.
