Long Lost Link Love

In which #1 disappears without internet for several days and wonders what #2 will come up with when she returns…

This:  the pain of weeding books.  Ow.

Five Cent Nickel explains why ze will never be a landlord.

Bardiac with:  If you give a house a repair.

For those of you who are super nerds or love someone who is a super nerd, we really enjoyed this website and its recent video of famous nerds playing a board game.  And not just because #1 has a small crush on Grant Imahara.

Wandering Scientist with an incredibly popular post on chores and couples.  We’ll have one next week (it’s been scheduled for over a month in the deliberately controversial slot…), but it is unlikely to get as many comments!

    It is a record number of comments for me! But to be fair, a lot of them are me replying to other people’s comments.

      Another bloggy right of passage there, congrats @Cloud! And by the way, thank you for your discretion about the tempest in a teapot. I’m just getting back from traveling and am so not in the mood. @N&M, I’m really looking forward to your post. I think you’ve managed expectations accordingly, and I’m excited to finally get to read it next week.

        We love to manage expectations.

        No worries, I figured if you didn’t make the link, neither would I.

        I’m looking forward to the N&M take on housework, too! I am specifically waiting to write my follow up “what I learned from all those comments” post until I can link to it.

    Internet outages…no fun. Thanks for the links!

    I continually think about home repair. It’s like 1% of my brain is now dedicated to things like cracked tiles, areas that need to be repainted, etc. It’s like the house needs a monthly visit from a handyman or contractor. But instead I fix what is urgent and continue thinking about the rest of it. Like the exhaust chimneys on the roof really should be repainted but I really don’t want to climb up there. Speaking of chores, I should probably mow the lawn today.

    Enjoyed the piece on weeding books. I’ve been in that process for several years now and it actually gets easier for me all the time.

    Looking forward to the post on chores and couples, too. I didn’t read through all the comments in that link because I really don’t think I’m going to find my solution anywhere but at home, and I’ve read enough similar stuff that I really don’t think anyone else’s situation is going to enlighten mine. I’m a “Joan,” except I don’t fight about it. I just passive-aggressively don’t do any more housework than is necessary to maintain my personal comfort level. I figure if he doesn’t care about the giant tumbleweeds of cat fur rolling around the parquet, why should I.
