We went to all three stores here and not a one even had a bag of flour or sugar! After all that and three hours later of me staring and wandering around, I came home and took my xanax and went to bed.

Then I realized that I actually have everything here and I can make my own buttermilk. duh!

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

my comment above was really for the local stores, I'm pretty sure it's another story in the big walmart-size stores.

I'm avoiding my usual mid-sized grocery store and to get to any big store, I would have to take public transportation, so NO.

the thing is, French people as a group tend to be "reserved" and cynical think for example, that the kind of emotional stuff in the US is over-the-top and sentimental . lots of management techniques just don't work here. But when something happens, people are extremely connected and deeply moved. both good and bad events,how people came together after January 2015 and then the Bataclan.

and also fonder memories, the 1998 and 2018 world cups.

I want to give this cake to his family, and it is really easy, but I just don't want to do the preparation.

I have to get all of the baking dishes out of the oven first. It'll smell good in here baking.

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

Ok, I just googled this and "buttermilk" can be made with vinegar or lemon juice.

For YEARS, I thought it was some product I simply would never find here, like condensed soup and ranch dressing mix. I didn't even know what it was! I thought it was something like extremely rich cream.

Well, I have some extra time for baking these days...
now, what else goes into " buttermilk biscuits" ?

It may be hot in here, but it smells SO good.

I'm going to make a poppyseed cake too.

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

Facebook is both a blessing and a curse these days. I’ve taken to posting at least one thought a day and have been commenting a lot more on other posts.

The upside is that I’m connecting with folks....

The downside is people think they can say whatever they want hidden behind a keyboard.

I’m not in it to have contentious political discussions, but sitting on my hands is getting harder to do ( especially when some comments are on a post that I made).

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

I still get annoyed when I see an invisible "1 More" like on a post of a friend or page because I know it's likely from someone who blocked me.

I seem to enter a victim mentality in which I feel re-victimized and start blaming myself for that person's actions. I had to slap myself silly, like "No, you didn't make this person do anything to you. You don't make others act like jerks, they choose to act that way". Good thoughts to have, I was feeling like emailing this jerk to say "Stop liking posts that have few likes, seeing the likes of you reminds me you're still a jerk. If you want to block me from your life, you should block yourself from my life by not showing up in mine!" ...and I was also feeling like saying that his annoying likes "make" me annoyed and want tell him about it... but I guess that logic doesn't work after thinking earlier said thought.

Another helpful thing I remind myself is that not only do I not have to let this person control how I feel, but it's very unlikely this person has any intention of trying to control me.

Plus, I can use this an opportunity to prove that this person isn't in control by not reacting to him anymore. I can embrace my own freedom

I'm starting to notice I have a "what if this person is trying to control me" fear in my head, but I've learned something recently... instead of asking what if, say even if...
Even if someone were trying to control me, that doesn't mean I cant strive to be free.
