It is a lot of work, but I grew up camping a lot and those trips are the best memories of my childhood so I try to do the same for my kids. It was much more fun when I was a kid and not on the planning side of things, though.

Your adhd can give you free access and half off camping fees at national parks in case you didn't know.

I camp cause it makes traveling really affordable. And sleeping outside in a beautiful setting is very nice on occasion.

Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part IV

At work:

I am copied into the last email in a long exchange of messages about some event and then a request to set up conf call about it.

"Of Course. Stef can organize this."

a) the request in the first place, was to someone else's assistant, you are just in copy so READ YOUR EMAILS;

b) can I, though? will I have time to take care of this today? Perhaps ask me first!

Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part IV

I got great sleep and my body feels good.

The mind, however, is no better for it. Foggy slurry, dontcha know.

What time is it now? 10:29 AD...After Dex.


Cheers,
Ian

https://store.usgs.gov/access-pass

It's called an access pass. Go to the above link. You can get a paper application form there. You'll need a Drs note too from my recollection but th as t website should explain more.

If you mail the applicstion, it's a $10 processing fee but if you turn it in in person to one of their local offices, the pass is completely free.

Click on the access pass benefits section and I think it links to where their local offices are.

Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part IV

The cake isn't sweet at all. hopefully fuzzling will still like it. It's light and moist though who knows how it will taste in the morning. I still don't know how you store cskes.i ususlly just leave them in the baking tray out on the kitchen counter.

I'm not a good cook. Not at all. Sometimes I wonder if that is why fuzzling is such a poor eater.

You don’t. You eat them.

Okay, seriously now...you use a cake plate with a domed lid.

They can be cheap and cheerful, or fancy and spendy, and there are all kinds out there to choose from.


Cheers,
Ian

Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part IV

I don't understand how I manage to burn everything while cooking every single time. It's crazy. Seriously every time. How dumb can anyone be???

I must have a had a million meltdowns trying to cook more than one thing at
a time ... at least one of them always got burned. Always.

I don't have the planning skills, or the attention skills, to cook more than one
thing at a time, let along having three or four pots going on the stove at one
time like my mother did.

Blm also let's people camp absolutely free at some locations but I've never tried this before as those sites are mostly more primitive. Also, don't know what the crowd who uses these sites are like.

Freecampsites.net maps out free camping spots which people r provide reviews on. I haven't checked out any of thses spots either.

I have mostly got two things cooking at the same time. It just seems like too much of an effort to cook thrm consecutively. Maybe that explains why my cooking is so bad..
