I do not understand these long mid-season breaks American TV shows have. We've already had one over December/January - why is there another one now!?!?!

I don't understand it either, kat.

I remember when tv schedules were as follows: new shows in order with no breaks from sept thru may. Reruns of those same shows from june thru august. Shows were on the same day same time same channel for their entire run. Rinse and repeat every year for 50 years or so. But for the last 5 years or so it's a struggle to know what's on when on what channel for how long.

Lmao Saria and OBB... Who are these people that take such pictures?

The good news, my internship app and recs are compete! Now to wait.

And my negative observation of the day is that Howard University Hospital does the most! I called them about 10 times today and my experience was just... Wow. The people who work there are very nice and very helpful, but all the transferring, and sitting on the line for half an hour, and nobody having any information, and the fact that I had to explain my situation literally 25 times to 25 different people...sigh.

Its incredibly annoying to have a break, watch an episode or two and then have another month long break. You don't know when or what time they are starting up again and end up missing things, or just not caring about plot lines anymore. Sigh.

I see no logic for it.

Im just cranky because no more Vampire Diaries for a while means no more Klaus

I think I'm developing a coffee muscle in my left arm from lifting my coffee cup.

Only partially...I work out daily and watch my diet, and I still struggle with my weight. The answer is: Because weight itself is a struggle. Period.

now when you're single and in your 50s and you have a mortgage, i know that every penny counts. but is $4,000 enough?

the job is LESS busy than the one i have now and the team is WAY smaller - 6 people. i really like my co-workers, i have a GREAT boss, and i love the variety and challenges this job brings.

the senior judges' suites all have gorgeous views of the river and the west side of the city, so i worry that i'd be tempted to look outside a lot - especially in the summer when they will be playing baseball games at Labatt Park across the river (it's a perfect view of the playing field). it's a pro and a con.

they also replace the senior judges every 5 years. the current one is a very nice woman; what if the next one turns out to be a bugaboo???

then again, my current boss is also not far from retirement - i'd say he's planning to leave in 5 years.

i just don't know what to think...

anyone able to offer any guidance?

If you only get half of the $4k after taxes, that is ~ an additional $167 per month. If $3k after taxes, that is ~ an additional $250 per month. I say take it. The more you make closer to retirement, the better off you are when you do retire.

Don't I know it. I'm not super active, but I'm not sedentary either. I do move around after my kids. I do not have time to work out for an hour every day BC I will not get up earlier. I watch my diet enough. I don't live off kale and water, but I eat healthy and I don't over indulge too often.

Some people have the genes for it, some do not.

I cannot believe my bf said he's never played Oregon trail, Amazon trail, or where in the world Carmen Sandiego on the computer. I cannot let it remain this way and will be purchasing the games for him to play.

Ya, you're talking to one of the have-nots right here! In fact, you're preaching to the leader of the choir of genetic have-nots!
