    using this ancient form of communication rather than masto makes me feel like i'm writing in stone tablets but i also kind of need that in my life rn lol, seems more solid rather than stuff just disappearing into the ether of content right away

    doing ok, juggling life responsibilities and wfh and posting things on a 20 yr old ff message board lol
    i been trying to run regularly which actually helps with everything

    Being a parent is a lot of work but also really fun. Hanging out with my kids and watching all the cute stuff they do is one of the biggest joys of my life. But I was not prepared for all the chores that go with it...

    ngl I spend a ton of time on SA these days because it's still super active and I miss message boards. Masto is cool for what it is (and I like it over twitter) but having asynchronous conversations that are ongoing is just comforting.
    Were you wfh pre-pandemic?

    I feel like I already have a lot of chores just because of our pets but yeah. I'm just imagining all of the stuff where I'm like "I can put off going to the store for a few more days, we have enough to get by" or "eh, laundry can wait, I'm not out of clean underwear yet" and realizing that kinda stuff is right out the window once the kid is here.

    Trips to the grocery store will definitely catch up to you quickly. Fortunately babies just need diapers and milk to get by, better have plenty of that though. Once you have a little kid you'll be amazed how much food they can plow through.

    To be honest, our budget for dry dog food is pretty well accounted for, so my plan is to see how long we can go just feeding them that once they're on solids. I figure it's only a marginal increase in our expenditures and Chewy is pretty quick to ship out new bags. We'll start introducing them to fresh fruits and vegetables once they're old enough to start generating income.

    Pretty sure they would choke on the dry food, but a lot of those processed baby foods are not too much different than what you'd get from Chewy.

    valid idea, please no one tell your kids what the internet is until they're 20, for their benefit and ours as well
