  1. IT'S ALIVE!!!!! Squash is missing from that list, and green bean casserole
  2. I'm not sure, you could check Gainesville and get a rough estimate. That's the nearest large city to me. We were without power for several weeks in 2005 when we had five hurricanes in a month, and there was flooding all over town, and trees falling down across a bunch of roads. It depends on the strength when it hits landfall, as far as intensity. If it's a big enough storm it doesn't even have to make landfall to affect us. Gaston saw half my city without power for a week two years ago.
  3. I wasn't worried about Dorian. I'm sad that some people died and so many in the Bahamas lost their homes, but I'm thankful it collapsed before it got to Florida. I figured it would. The reason I'm not afraid of hurricanes is that I have a week to prepare for it. I have time to batten the hatches, pack extra food, etc. I don't have time for that with a tornado, or an earthquake. I don't like the cold, so Florida is the only place I'd really want to live based on those criteria. And honestly, our regular summer rain is so constant, anything under Cat 3 is little more intense than that so who the
  4. Photography is such a fun hobby. I'd do more if I had the time. As it is, I'm a busy busy bee lol You have a great eye, Kat! You could go far if you keep it up! Alli update- I'm good, still working, still parenting, still streaming. MacKenzie just turned 3, and she was very very happy with her birthday this year. She got an indoor/outdoor princess castle tent and has decided it's the coolest bed ever (it's not, but at some point I'm more interested in a rested toddler than a toddler in a bed) lol
  5. Life is great! Work is fun! I'm hardly on register so I'm a happy girl! 😁 and MacKenzie is the sweetest little thing and so mischievous lol getting into everything! I'm having a lot of fun streaming on twitch and running the community we started there. I've met so many amazing people and made friends I'd never have encountered otherwise.
  6. such beautiful pictures! MacKenzie is doing well, she's starting to figure out how pedals work on her trike! And Sean has continued to lose weight. getting close to 20lbs off!
  7. Not a whole lot new has happened in the last couple weeks, with her. She's still happy and healthy. I'm still tired everyday bc that child wakes up at 7 every. Single. Day. *cries* Sean is losing weight and working on getting back into shape. I'm super proud of him, he's lost almost 15 pounds in like three weeks.
  8. also, what a fantastic shot of that fox! is that a yawn?
  9. no I'm not putting money aside. I should, I know. we will be soon. omg MacKenzie would adore that (and so would I, to be honest, love me some crayons) haha please no drums. she has one. she likes it. it makes an excellent stairs. xylo and other instruments, I can't wait to give her music, I'm looking at where to find kid-level instruments since walmart doesn't really have them anymore. she already likes to sing, after all. I think I'm doing a good job. I'm trying. I think Sean is doing a better job. He's home with her, he does everything. She loves him to death. She's so good. I hope
  10. She is absolutely a joy. I do get frustrated when she's misbehaving but she's just learning and trying to play so I try to guide her away instead of getting mad... it's hard sometimes but I'm getting better at it. She definitely has her own mind about a ton of stuff lol! Work is good, I have been off register more often than not which is best for me haha I worked enough full time weeks in a row that I'm really full time now, which means I get better insurance options and bigger bonuses every quarter!
  11. Lol her nickname on twitch and other sites is smallmonster. The endearing kind, like Elmo and Grover are monsters on sesame street. She chose the green!
  12. Check it outtttt my little monster is drawing landscapes! (I drew the animals)
  13. she's two and a half and very much an active, rambunctious, loving toddler! No new artwork. But she can draw faces and some letters and she's just the sweetest smartest little thing ❤️ I am a cashier, and I am lucky that my managers know I prefer to be on the floor bc they use me as a stocker almost every day so no Alli stuck on register all day long!! we didn't do anything for Easter. I worked shrugs and we couldn't go to my mom's anyway bc they replaced her roof this week. We don't really have Easter traditions anymore... my grandmother died last August, and holiday dinners were al
  14. 😮 A new face! Welcome to the boards, Scarlett! I'm having a lovely month so far. I started a new job last month and I've been working FULL TIME so I ACTUALLY HAVE MONEY!!!! (it's been a while...) and of course MacKenzie is a genius and beautiful and wonderful.
  15. Right so. I drew a blank stick figure and handed monster the pen. "Can you show me eyes?" She pokes the pad several times where the eyes are. Creepy, but accurate for toddler. "Can you show me a mouth?" She draws a mouth ish shape where the mouth goes. "What about hair?" She gives it a beautiful long mane of hair. Repeat for a shirt (a line on the torso part) pants (ish) and feet. We did this a few more times and she even gave a cat its feet, tail, and face. ***My Kid Can Draw***
  16. It was delicious! Had some fur in it tho, should probably wear a hair net next time
  17. Lol I meant she scribbled over her chalkboard while I was out of the room! My phone is still in the same shape it was before lol I saw the eclipse but alas, my phone wouldn't capture it right *shrug* Hi Kat!
  18. It was on her chalkboard and while I was getting my phone she scribbled on it to the point of no return. She was happy tho so I didn't press it lol As for picture, here!
  19. I didn't realize the site was back or I'd have been back. Mackenzie was doc mcstuffins for Halloween. I worked and didn't get a picture. But she had fun with daddy and her friend. She's so big now! And! And! TODAY SHE DREW HER FIRST RECOGNIZABLE PICTURE! It was a dolphin. I'm trying to put her to bed right now. We had a good Christmas. Small, but she got some clothes and was happy. :-( what's gonna happen to this place?
  20. I've just learned about this a few minutes ago. I'm sad to hear this news. I hope his family finds peace. Many thanks to hk for his years of caring for this place.
