  1. Coming up on 18 years this month. That can't be right...I was just a college kid when I found this place.
  2. Oh no. I remember you and your mom well. I'm so sorry for your loss. Strength and best wishes to you and your sister at this difficult time. Cancer is a cruel *Admin and our Terms of Service prohibit profanity* that I wish on no one.
  3. I was thinking about you the other day. I'm glad you're still causing trouble and I hope you're able to recover as speedy as time allows.
  4. Yeah I think that's being changed. I haven't been to the food court since they took away my beloved combo pizza though.
  5. I think you have to scan your membership card before you can order food. Good. Now if only there were separate lines for Executive members.
  6. It's February, and the golf courses opened today.
  7. I have amazing people in my life who challenge and support me in every way possible. I have a stable career (which I partially credit this very website for) and was told at my quarterly review last week that the company would "take care of me" given my performance. I assume they mean financially and professionally, rather than a mob-like way. I am financially secure and (relatively) young, and able to support causes that are important to me because of it. I'm looking at you, cancer. I am thankful that my family is in good health. I'm thankful for the roof over my head, and good neighbors at a safe distance. @IndyPoolPlayer If I can ask, where do you have money markets earning 4.5-5%? I just opened a small 7-month CD at 5.36% but would love a more liquid option near that rate.
  8. To think, I used to think so many here were so old. Now I've been here so long, I'm old. I don't like this.
  9. Chipotle no....Qdoba or, better yet, Moe's yes.
  10. I try to keep them as separate as possible. However, at the same time, I love working from home. I have an office at work and I should be there 1-2 times a week but I am rarely there once a week. It depends on the menu. But working from home can create some bad habits. For example, I am NOT a morning person. The idea of getting up and being cheerful and business-ready when I walk downstairs to my home office is just....weird. So I typically work from my bed until noon-ish and then either work from another room in the house, or if it's really nice outside, I'll sit on the deck and work. I'll only go down to the office if I need more screens. As far as work-life balance, I'm lucky that, aside from one short-lived stint that didn't go well AT ALL, I've worked for companies that take work-life balance very seriously. Hard stop at 40 hours, even though we're salaried. Long days early in the week mean early weekends. Weekends are NOT for work unless there's a BIG deadline (which...business days don't fall on weekends so this shouldn't happen). We have people who are workaholics and work during PTO and our ELT threatened to pull accesses if people work during PTO because time away means time away....and denying PTO is almost unheard of. I know it's not like that everywhere and I'm thankful.
  11. I still haven't had anything done. I started in May thinking I'd get ahead of the game. Got 3 quotes. Was indecisive and before I knew it, it was the middle of June and I couldn't get any responses. Now summer is half done and I'm just going to put it off until next Spring. I'm also thinking about replacing the water heater with a tankless model since the one I have is original to the house and I'd rather not have it leak or explode. My current A/C can keep the house comfortable, but it runs all day and I've had to have it recharged the past two summers. I think it's too small for the house to begin with. Sigh.
  12. Yep. If theft is too high for Wallyworld, there's no way local mom and pops will survive the theft. I can't work up much sympathy though. They wanted these soft on crime policies. Enjoy!
