    It's weird what's out of stock, isn't it. I can't get Italian flavored shake n'bake anywhere. My local Sobeys has got some herb & parmesan breadcrumbs in, but not quite the same, especially on chicken legs. I had to resort to Amazon for the 'free & clear' version of a laundry detergent. Summer (stone) fruit was lousy quality this year, even at the fruit stand. Only plums were decent.

    I've resorted to those meal kit services a few times, those get variety in one's diet. Not cheap though, especially when the coupon ends.

    But the muffins in question actually use up old crap. Mushy bananas, sour milk. They turn out fine with egg replacer instead of eggs. But it can be hard to find the wheat germ.

    Oh, on topic to the thread: Washing machine is running, washing summer bedding that needs to get put away. (Using the Amazon detergent, yes.)

    Banana muffins sound so good. One of the things I miss the most due to the pandemic is easy access to a variety of foods. I look at other people post pictures of food online and drool. I was folding laundry.

    Uploaded my latest assignment for school yesterday, made banana muffins a couple hours ago, now I'm just farting around on the computer reading.
    Should study for major testing stuff next week. A total of 30% of my mark.

    Hahah! Well, that's where the Swords post came from. There are a lot of things that seemed to have gotten lost.

    Laundry. It's what is very often happening when I'm on here.

    Mom was by on Sunday to visit, and had her lower leg all strapped up in quite the contraption. Her spirits are good, & her neighbors helping a lot.

    Myself? Schooling, schooling, schooling. They have one theory about how to detect cheating- have us do it by hand and scan or photograph it. Income Statements, Balance Sheets, attached schedules. All by hand on looseleaf and then scanned. It wasn't as bad as it seems at first glance- I do like to have a hard copy before typing it in. (But oh the white-out I used getting a nice clean copy.)

She's considering dropping an 'anti-estrogen' med, wondering if it's contributing to her increased falls. Outright broken gets homecare covered, there's that small thread of a silver lining.

    Myself? My asthma doc is still pushing the idea of a C-PAP machine. Blowing the peak flow meter I coughed myself dizzy, so maybe I do have to.

    School starts tomorrow. I'm almost done the first two modules, but it formally 'starts', with a teacher to answer questions and stuff.
    Yikes! Hugs, hugs! I hope things get better for you two!

    Well that post was 14 days ago. Hopefully things are working okay by now!

    I am, at least twice a day, force-feeding one of my kitties. She's a little older, has chronic kidney disease, anemia as a consequence, and gets daily 250 ml drips. She doesn't feel good, so she doesn't want to eat, so on and so on. Fortunately, she forgives me for it.

    Ooooo. What kind of foot pain? I've had my share of that--plantar faciitis, hammer toe surgery. That stuff hurts like a sonofagun. Just one cat? How old is she now?

    This year will not be missed. I want to be first in line for a Covid vaccine, right after first responders, that is. Enough of this virus already.

    Got our Boulder house on the market last week. Too bad we couldn't do it 3 years ago when everything was being snapped up within hours after the For Sale sign went up, but the spare heir was living there. I will be so happy to be done with Boulder. What a bunch of moronic loons. Now, if we could just get some rain here in good ol' Texas. I love coming here to complain.

    PW--hope your mom's ankle has healed, and DW, hope your parent is doing better.

    Tomorrow's the first day of the new semester, and I'm simultaneously excited and nervous. I hope I can cope well enough with the now completely online courses. I like to go in to classes as it helps me focus, but that's not really an option this semester. Such as it is, though. Today I've got to make sure everything is working, download Microsoft Teams for the streaming courses, and pick up some groceries. After that I'll probably watch a movie and/or some Doctor Who, and enjoy one last night of gaming before that ceases to be a daily activity again. Fun fun.

    & right as I was kvetching about lack of coursework yesterday? It's up. But the website is slow as molasses so I'm reading various bulletin boards between page loads. I hope this doesn't continue once it's officially started.
    Ah! At least you were entertained while waiting, though! Right?

    Da's not so immediately for the clearing. Time, though, will catch up with him.

    I eat cold soup often.

    Today I got up early for a family meeting. I'm the one who had to be on Skype. A report about a parent's condition. Kidney issues. They are just keeping us all informed, in case they have to go to the clearing at the end of the path.

    I was up early because a package was due between 8 am-8 pm. It showed up just before 2 pm, so in retrospect I didn't have to be up so early.

    Orientation for online school was up on Monday, and I've done it. So yeah, woo hoo & why am I up and active for so long in the middle of a heat wave? (At least the package included 'ready-to-blend' smoothies. Frozen breakfast will be *nice* during 31 C weather. No break until Tuesday predicted.)

    Woke up early due to back pain, so now I'm listening to John Mulaney and browsing the net. Woo, so much fun.

    Story ideas percolate in my head! So I hope to start writing soon. Must go to the vet and get some medicine for my cat.

    *Groan* School in three weeks, for me. I checked the website- nothing up yet besides the placeholder for my course.

    Now what do I need to do before school starts? I've got my textbook, binder, pen refills, notebooks, etc. My non-school finances- I'm waiting on paperwork. Witch I've submitted. Do I need a new keyboard? My nice one died last month, and this one, witch came with this computer, is skipping letters if I go fast. Maybe I just need to get used to it.
    Oh yeah- pick up around here. I thought I'd have my housework caught up. I didn't even do the sci-fi series binges that I thought I would- the PVR is still quite full. (Watching more Turner Classic Movies than that.)

    *Groan* Getting back into the habit of starting the computer sooner. (Since it's an online course.) Yeah, that too.

    tl:dr? Yeah, I'm feeling the laziness too.
