I am also the only one concerned about induction tops, "boil water in 30 seconds", and split ovens. I put my foot down on my convection requirement. How else am I supposed to cook gourmet meals like this:
You want -5 star meals every night, you have to provide the proper equipment for the job. Fish sticks don't just make themselves you know.
Grace and Molly joined Brownies this year for the first time. They are loving it so far. This week they were told to bring hammers with their names or initials on them. It is a pretty good indication that I have been watching far too many crime shows when my immediate thought is that Brown Owl might be planning to bump someone off and frame a brownie for it with a nicely labelled murder weapon.

We had the kids' school open house tonight, which I had to take the kids to by myself because Nerdguy already had a big meeting that couldn't be rescheduled. I was in my usual state of delusion that it wouldn't be that bad. It was a gong show. They had a bbq first, which meant standing in a ridiculous line, while trying to keep Maggie from running off. This involved a lot of flailing about and a level orange on my alertness for disaster scale.
Then it was time to visit the classrooms, which should have been easy, since I only had 2 to go to this year.
My logic was clearly flawed.
It's like saying, "We're only going to snap one of your fingers off, instead of 3, so it should be easy peasy."
Maggie is moving. All of the time. And her movements are large and unpredictable, so it's never clear until it has happened that she is going to lurch sideways and step on some lady's foot. Or grab some dad's ass. So unclear, in fact, that each of these things happened multiple times. There may be a bulletin circulating with our faces on it.
