Monday Morning Open Thread

December 1, 2014

What’s up?

I am bone weary tired. Last week, DH and I took off from work to purge our house of years’ worth of junk and prepare for the holidays. We got through the kitchen, our bedroom, the master bathroom, and living room. We cleared out ten heavy-duty construction bags of junk — which we have to take to the transfer station — and six regular trash bags of clothes that went to Good Will. By the time we got to the “fun” part of buying the tree and decorating the inside and outside of the house, I thought to myself, “Why are we doing this? We don’t need any more stuff!” lol.

I meant to take pictures to show off our progress, but I just can’t muster the strength.

How are you this morning?

    Can you come to my house next?

    Have you all heard of Yik Yak? Don’t check it out – you’ll assume things apply to your children. Ack. Brain bleach, please?

      It’s a big controversy on college campuses because of the anonymous format. My colleagues and I have looked at it a few times and it was kind of stupid. We didn’t see anything outrageous, but maybe that’s just the times we looked.

        I looked in on it, and most of it was sex and pot. Or Adderall, since finals are coming.

    So yes, 90% dumb, but I just had a minor freak out because one post sounded exactly like a child of mine and what’s read cannot be un-read. Probably wasn’t her, right?
