Pinned toot

wife's death & health issues, details for a pinned toot because it comes up often enough. 

Kelli was diagnosed with FSGS when she was in 3rd grade. It's a rare disease that basically makes your kidneys fall apart. Most/all of her other issues stem from that.

When I met her, she was on the tail end of her 2nd transplant. She lost it before we were married. She was nervous on our wedding day because she had to come from dialysis to the church and didn't want to get blood on her dress. (continued..)

A Co-Op I joined sent me an email to say they'll be closed on Black Friday.

I approve.

I've used Carbonite for years, but their recent strategy of giving me pop-up ads to encourage me to put it on another computer is making me strongly consider alternatives.

At this point it's inertia that's keeping me a customer, but they're doing their best to overcome that for me.

food 

Making my morning oatmeal by adding coffee instead of water.

Not bad, honestly.

Doing $5 minis for a limited time. Humans, goblins, elves, orcs furries, animals, you name it. No limit to slots per person... I'd have to get to 85 to make the money I need anyway haha.

widower 

Thinking about the person who decided the best therapy was telling me my wife was dead in a "you need to face the facts, child" way, followed by stories of widowers who started dating and remarried within a year.

I know she thought she was helping.

If you think a strategy like this ever helps, let me advise against your assessment of your critical thinking skills.

coffee 

I recently started grinding my own beans using the cheapest somewhat reliable hand-powered burr grinder I could find, and it is worth it.

almost no context uspol comment 

Oh, so that explains the 5th element images I've seen posted recently.

Recent evening meal poll 

I accept the results of the poll but recent developments have led me down a different path.

I forgot said pizza place also offers chicken alfredo pasta bowls.

Poll for my evening meal choices 

I will be hungry soon. What do I munch, internet?

Poll for my evening meal choices 

Not much love for soup in these early results.
