David and Bryan are expectant parents and, for the first time since learning that they are expecting (via their surrogate), the real world reminds them not everything will be coming up roses.

This is obviously a comedy so it’s sprinkled with a bit of levity but the situation is very much real and that makes it even more unbelievably sad.

Some people… sigh

This show was so fucking important. I miss it so much.

How do thing with 7 tiny photos

I am a disabled veteran, was diagnosed with depression at age 5, and am currently PMSy, which makes my chronic hip and back pain worse. I can generally stand up, but not for very long.

For a couple of weeks, I’ve been really down and very behind on housework.

Here is how I do things that need to be done, with depression and chronic pain.

Step 1:  Decide, “Today, I WILL do a thing.” and choose a thing to do.

image

Ew. I hate doing dishes and tend to put them off. Especially pots and pans.

Step 2:  Ask myself, “CAN I do this right now?”. Yeah, I feel ok. My hips are a little sore, but my back isn’t bothering me at the moment. I think I can stand up long enough to get this done. There isn’t much there, and the dish drainer isn’t full, so I don’t need to empty it before I get started.

Step 3:  Get started.
Since I’m doing dishes, I gather every, single dirty dish from around the house and bring it to the sink. I also empty and clean the large side of the sink. I keep a trash can nearby so I can easily throw out paper towels, tea bags, straws, etc. that get put in there.

image

Step 3.1: Still getting started.

A lot of people like to put all of the dirty dishes into the sink and fill it with water. I don’t. I put a little bit of soapy water, maybe one or two inches deep.

image

And I wash one dish at a time, rinsing it back into the soapy water.

image

This saves water and fills the sink a little at a time. I never use more water than I actually need to. I also do this so that, when I am working, I’m not staring down at a daunting pile of filthy dishes. I see one dish, which I can totally do.

I also do not like to use a dish cloth. When it gets greasy or gets lumps of food, it’s disgusting. I prefer a baby bottle brush, because I only have to touch the handle. I am eliminating triggers and excuses.

I use paper towels on the teflon pans. I know they’re wasteful, but they work better for me than a rag that then gets thrown into a basket to be cleaned, maybe two or three weeks from now?

Step 4: Try not to focus on the pile. It’s shrinking, trust me.

image

At this point, my hips started to ache. It had been maybe 7 or 8 minutes, I really can’t stay on my feet very long. But I can’t take breaks, either. Once I sit down, I generally don’t have the energy to get up again other than to use the restroom. So!

Step5:  Soak the big, nasty stuff last.

image

This non-stick skillet was really crusty and gross. It needed a little soak to break up the dry food. By now, there is plenty of water in the sink, too. This is a really good place to take a break, but set a timer so you don’t forget or give up.

Since I can’t take a break, I took this time to clean and scrub the countertop where the dirty dishes have been piling up, and to scrub the grime and gross from around and behind the sink.

My mother has a nasty habit of taking the dirty dishcloth and wiping it all over the countertops. It drives me nuts. Don’t do that at my house.

Now, at around the 12 minute mark, my hips are sending warning signals. Almost done, but…

Step 6: Not yet.

After the last dish is cleaned and laid out to dry, I clean the sink. The whole thing. Both sides, the faucet, the splash guard. Don’t let any food bits stay in the sink.

image

Ok! Now I’m done. That steel water bottle needs washed, too, but I am DONE. I can’t stand up anymore, hell, I can barely sit up straight after that.

So, why didn’t I just empty the dishwasher and refill it? That would be faster, yes. It would also require a lot of bending over, and reaching up to put the dishes away. My body isn’t that cooperative, so I leave it for Husband to do when he gets home. This is also why I don’t dry the dishes. He won’t be home to put them away for another 6 hours or so, why hurt myself more than I need to?

This is so great. Work within your limits, listen to your body, do what you can, and don’t beat yourself up over things like not using the dishwasher. Excellent job.

This is almost exactly how we wash dishes in my household and it’s really nice seeing it laid out like this to show the mindset of dealing with a daunting pile of dishes. Great resource!

ok but here’s the thing,

everyone seems to think the Ravenclaw Common Room is constantly just people with their noses in books and super quiet scribbling away with the odd rousing debate.

While Ravenclaws are bookish and intelligent - people seem to forget their other defining feature: wit.

I’m sure that at least once a week someone pulls out a fiddle from their luggage and someone else pulls out a pennywhistle and before you know it feet are stomping and hands are clapping as some 6th years play a jig with long improvised solos that should seem longer than necessary but no one cares because everyone is experimenting with their own intricate rhythms, drumming on tables and chairs until Professor Flitwick is forced to come and tell them to quiet down because it’s 2 in the morning but it never really works because he ends up striking up some folk tune and encouraging 3rd years to add in harmony and the party goes on another hour longer.

Some nights would be jazz, some would be folk, some would be classical, some would end in epic rap battles between groups of 7th years whose rhymes and beats were perfected like shakespearean sonnets. Slam poetry and sing alongs. Improv comedy nights held once a month were always the envy of other houses.

While not the most rambunctious bunch in the Great Hall, or the loudest on the Quidditch Pitch - with their wit and creativity, Ravenclaws sure know how to entertain.
