Few months ago I posted about my wife and I moving and purchasing our first home from my in-laws.

Well, I jumped the gun on the post a bit. We did move in, and got approved for a mortgage but last minute we didn't go through with the sale.

Instead we got word that my wife's job was moving out of state and we've been in a bit of a holding pattern waiting for more details. It has kinda sucked.

Anyway, we've recently found out that we're relocating to Denver. So we join the masses that are crowding Colorado.

Now we wait. still have a couple months to facilitate the move, the second move we've done in this pandemic...ugh.

So...Anyone know anything about Denver?

Fuck me. I literally just got off the phone with my therapist where I made a horrifying realization.

I'm not frustrated that I haven't been able to spend 1-on-1 alone time with my father for the last 10 years... I'm frustrated because I've been trying and failing to have alone time with my father for my whole fucking life.

When customers started trying to force they're way into my fresh food department to try and steal sanitizer wipes.

The Grocery store made more money than their last 3 Holiday Seasons combined in less than 2 weeks, selling out of every cleaning supply and canned food imaginable... and we all got $75 dollar "bonuses" as a thank you.

Haha, I surely didn't have it nearly as bad as Cynthia Jeub. Super Christians, yes, extremist homeschoolers, no. There was no abuse, but damn did I feel neglected and ignored as a child.

My parents are 3 of 12, and 8 of 11. Both wanted a huge family too, but had to stop at 6 kids biologically. So there was also adoption and 10+ years of foster care to make sure our household was never less than 9 or 10 at a time.

As the second oldest... Expert babysitter by 10 years old. Left the church at 14. Decidedly Childfree at 16. Moved out at 18.

"Quiverfull"

Guess it's nice to have a word for the reason I became Atheist and Childfree.

Nevermind. Definitely my end, it's normal on any other browser. I'll figure it out.

Nothing to see, just a user having a bad morning.

Thanks for a quick response, though.

Really missing these guys recently.

I think one of the reasons I'm so excited about the channel now, is that: pre-covid, Tested was maybe 20-25% Adam Savage. He did some larger projects with less regular videos. But when the lockdown hit, Tested became 80+% Adam recording himself in his workshop while he talked and made things, so it was everything I had wanted from the channel.

He made a Rickshaw.

Modified fun props.

Reviewed tools, gadgetsand random shop items.

Done live LEGO build/QandA's.

Costume builds

Adam Savage has pumped out A LOT of super good content during quarantine.

The YouTube algorithm has definitely latched onto my love of no-nonsense Aussies building lovely things... here's some good channels. Thanks for showing me Beau, just subscribed.

For real. Stopping idiots stealing catalytic converters has been a big part of my job for the past 10 years, this isn't a new revelation.
