Share a good link with me in the comments!

  1. My parents have an air fryer so they made a few things for Paul in it last week. It made me want to get one but I can’t fit another appliance into our kitchen! So my plan is to replace our toaster oven with a combo air fryer and toaster oven in a couple of years. My parents love their air fryer!!

    My trust of others has been totally and completely eroded during the pandemic. :(

  2. I do think when things get back to a more usual type of normal, a lot of us will still have many fears and anxieties. Things won’t ever be the same, but I do hope we can all adjust to a newer version of normal that doesn’t feel as insane as this past year though.

  3. I am so anxious about certain aspects of a return to “normal”. Specifically, going back into our building for work. While my job doesn’t require me to always be in the building when I am working, there has historically been a focus on only attending meetings, etc., in person. We just got a survey today asking what our preferences / views were on returning to the building, and I was very specific in saying that we need to keep the option of virtual / hybrid meetings / presentations moving forward. I am hoping others make the same point… We shall see! I know your job wasn’t very supportive of work-from-home before the pandemic. Have they changed?

    1. We always had a “telework policy” at my office, it just felt like you had to have a very good reason to telework full time. I think this has changed and many people will keep at least a part-time telework schedule… and right now, they’re not eager to get people back into the building. I am totally okay with that. I prefer working from home when possible.

  4. Again some interesting articles. I feel the woman at rage thing. I can see it with all my female friends with kids who are struggling. But also I am so done for cooking meals all the time… It is a bit sad to see.
