    Glad you made it safely! Just in time to watch our boys beat Auburn tomorrow!

    (Here's my logic on that - we beat Alabama by 15, they beat Auburn by 19.) ;)

    Well my uncle died today, it was totally unexpected going to leave a pretty big gap in the family. He was a great guy.

    All of us here at the lumber yard knew him. He was definitely one of a kind. We will miss him a great deal.

    Things like that hurt enough when you know they're coming. Without warning it's a whole different ballgame. Sorry.

    Don't listen to those guys! You're way too old to learn anything more. Fact, as we get older our brains get full like a hard drive on a computer. There is no room for new data unless you start deleting. And when you delete you don't get to choose, it's ******* totes random. You'll be lucky to remember your own name! Don't do it, man, just don't. :eek:

    Rough day. Week, really. LM home sick M-W, seemed better yesterday but worse again today. Major stuff going on at work for me this week and I have to keep leaving. Worked 2.5 days. DH worked 3 but half of that for both of us was from home. Urgent care this morning for the babe and he has pneumonia so that's fun. Also, a doc that keeps saying "oh stop, stop it I'm not even doing anything" to the SICK toddler crying at getting his ears and chest checked needs some work on their bedside manner JFC.
    LM seems much better tonight but we'll see how 3-5am goes. And **** got screwed up at work and I hope we fixed some (most?) of it but I expect angry calls next week that stuff is ****** up and it'll take a lot of coffee to not have me say **** off and hang up. I know it's probably caused a minor inconvenience and that's annoying but **** all my team had a rough week and we spent a **** ton of time today trying to get it fixed. Promised DH I would go to work at 11, be home by 12:30 (planned to be there for a meeting only) and I got home at 5. Then took over holding napping wheezy until 7. So then bedtime was 9:30 ayayay. But LM felt good enough to help put away all his toys. Also, this week has introduced him to tv and I should feel some concern or chagrin over how quickly he's started saying "Elmo?" pointing to my phone or the tv. Between trying to get work done and trying to quell the sad whining, our standards have slipped. He's been asleep for a bit now and no sad coughing or heavy breathing so maybe he's finally turning a corner. Or the antibiotics worked that quickly. Maybe both.

    Help: my car smells like a mixture of French fries, old coffee, wet socks and ass. The coffee is my fault (and maybe the ass) but I’ve got kids and I feel like it always smells something terrible. I feel like air fresheners don’t do the trick and there has to be some secret I’m unaware of. Yes I know, clean it out. I have on multiple occasions and then let one of the spray odor eater cans in it go while the air is on high to cycle it through the car and it still stinks. TIA

    Baking soda is a good (and cheap) cleaner and odor neutralizer. First make sure there’s no pieces of anything anywhere, including under the seats and down the cushions. Sprinkle the bs liberally (take that how you like) on seats and carpets and vacuum. You can use vinegar and water mixture on windows and hard surfaces, but do not mix bs and vinegar unless you want a science project volcano to clean up. Also, you can put bs in a small container and leave under the seat(s) and see if that helps longer term. Good luck.
