    Randomness XV: 'tis a silly place.

    Having done that a few times/years, feel free to PM me if you want advice or to complain or whatever. It feels like it should be instinctive, but it's really a learned skill.

    As someone who's witnessed large trees fall over multiple times, hopefully your neighbors appreciate your effort to have their houses not flattened. We've been VERY LUCKY that the three major trees that fell adjacent to us all managed to fall so has to do the least amount of damage physically possible. Only one house got any damage and it was to the garage. I mean, I love trees, but you have to also ensure they're safe. I don't know whether to laugh or cheer... Sounds like one way or another she's going to get toughened up.

    Babies are all different and it can take a while for you to get to know each other. One of mine would cry the instant her diaper was wet and was impossible to take in the car. But she was quick to settle down if you changed her IMMEDIATELY and was the most cheerful toddler. You'll get to know each other better and things will improve. Who knows, she might have indigestion or acid reflux or diaper rash or ??? Do mention it to your nurse or doctor if it's really chronic, they might have suggestions for you. I think my hospital even had a shop with carriers and stuff that you could try to see if baby liked it before having to waste any money on it.

    Over here you can sometimes get an "emergency supply" of certain medications that require consistent use. It helps when they hit you with an unexpected shortage or need to special order something. Sometimes they can also call around and find where there is some available. Good luck, chasing rare meds is always stressful.

    We always get lots of bumblebees, which is fine with me because I have an apple tree. Some schmo came to the house the other day trying to sell me on changing to his pest control service. His sales pitch was that they would cover my entire property, not just the perimeter of the house. (It's a quarter acre, and I just want to keep ants and termites from getting into the house and wasps off my eaves.) The bumblebee visiting my lemon plant was a reminder why I didn't want blanket the yard in pesticides.

    Painting my dragon bust (hand-sculpted)

    That's coming along very nicely! I've always loved the expression and pose on this dragon bust, such a neat concept!

    PaizoCon 2019!

    Hope everyone has fun, looks like the weather is even going to not be somewhat nice for everyone! Unfortunately my life exploded with crazy so I won't even be able to stop by.

    Daughter #2's measles immunity passed the bar, as did rhubella. Mumps failed, so another shot and a follow up test. This is the only good thing happening here today, so I'm holding on to it.

    It is unfortunately pretty much the norm. You might want to keep a journal of what repairs you do and contact info for people who you can call to fix things. Even a new house will have things a builder screwed up that need to get fixed.

    Wait, why has no one told me of this?? I'm so bored right now... Just sitting at a car dealership getting hubby's car checked. They have free cookies, which is awesome, but I could really use lunch.

    Yeah, they are a really small business, something like three people. The tale of medical woe for such a small team is pretty epic in scale. But it sounds like they have almost entirely cleared up the back log, and they do have good prices and nice sculpts. Just have tempered expectations.

    It's always easier to get darker, hard to get lighter. This seems to be the philosophy of a lot of adventure path type full campaigns--keep things middle of the road to start while the characters get to know each other, then bring in the big threats later.

    Yay!!! I was worried it would be too small, so I figured I'd better get it in the mail ASAP. She's an adorable little one, thanks for sharing the pictures!

    Have you taken Michael Proctor's shaded metallics class? I love my metallic paints too, so it was a good way to keep using them with a bit more technique behind them. (I'm no where near mastering the technique, it's just the direction I decided explore.)
