DOMS are hitting me a day late. I did my squat workout on Monday and my glutes are very sore today. Chest feels fine from yesterday but we'll see if they hit a day late too. More protein. More sleep. MOAR :sawce: Def need more sleep. Protein intake has been solid though. I think the main factor is ...

Crazier is she LOVES wearing these things. We'll put it on her, and she'll fight us when we try to take it off. She's like JP's dog with short hair, so the more coverage from a coat the better. We usually put that fleece one on her when we're taking her on a walk and there's zero shivering or conce...

Said it on Facebook but wanted to say it again - congrats! You both look thrilled!

Her ring looks very much like my wife's, albeit a slightly larger main stone. Is the .8 the total carat of the ring, or just the main stone itself?

Been out of the gym since Christmas Eve, unfortunately. The week of Christmas was a ski vacation (which ended up only being one day on the mountain due to weather). And I've been sick since New Year's soooo.... today's workout is going to kick my ass after work.

Water heaters: Tankless or tank? Ours is 25 years old :yikes: time to replace it. I think the cold water dip tube is gone inside the unit because water at the tap will oscillate between hot and cold. So I'm wondering if it's worth it to go tankless. Something to keep in mind, the exhaust is what it...

FINANCE: Cash Back Credit Cards

I personally have the Chase Freedom and Discover cards which both have rotating 5% cashback each quarter (with 1% on everything else), as others have said. I also have the Capital One Quicksilver which is 1.5% on everything, though I mainly got it for no international fees for when my wife and I tra...

Decided to push squats a little this morning to test my knee out. At the end of the squat workout, it called for an 8+ set at 305. In past workouts, I just got the prescribed reps and called it to avoid aggravating my R knee. Today, I did an extra rep, and definitely still had some in the tank. Slow...

Ceiling has been de-popcorned and painted. New tile has been laid and grouted - just waiting on it to dry a bit so we can clean it up. Vanity has been painted - just need to get the new nickel handles from the store. Countertop is being fabricated. Sink, faucet, and toilet are all being shipped. Shi...

I had never heard of a fireback before until just now catching up. Sounds like an awesome investment, though, I don't think it would work for ours given we have a pass-through. Womp.

In some ways he's scarier than Herr Cheeto.
As far as being a Democrat, yes. Pence is more of a threat to policies and laws that I like.

But as an American, Trump is the greater threat and I'd rather have Pence.
Well said, unfortunately.
