    What are you afraid of?

    I HATE SPIDERS. As I am writing this, I just noticed a big spider hanging from the patio door frame behind me, and it is making me extremely anxious. I am going to make an attempt at killing the 8-legged freak, but it I miss or it gets away I may need to burn it all to the ground. Here's hoping...

    Making extra money...do you have any side gigs?

I am not an essential worker, however I am fortunate enough to work for a company that has the means to support its workforce working remotely.

    Thunderstorms...Are they all they're cracked up to be?

    So I was sitting by my backdoor for about an hour tonight just watching the tremendous amount of rain coming down and the sounds/flashes or thunder/lightning from the storm going through. The amount of rain that was coming down, ultimately overwhelmed the sewer system and there was mild...

    The Sims

    So I think it is time for me to look into getting The Sims 4. I have been getting lost in youtube videos just watching people designing their sim-houses and I think that might be "fun and exciting" for a bit :P. I just checked Steam and The Sims 4 is $40...hmm...do I "really" want to play it?

I am a HUGE fan of buying in bulk and that has allowed me to do 1 big shop per month (costco) and then a couple...
