I stopped by the XRAY office to meet with the person who is taking over for me. While my tenure has been brief (a little more than two months) the current pandemic circumstances mean this is only my fourth time in the office. And one of those times I wasn’t working this job, I came down to do a different job because I had no internet at my house.

My intial reaction was along the lines of “we shall see.” But it’s quite funny, the cats reporting the cat news. In the time since I’ve been reading it, the “man” and “woman” have added a baby to the household. In this panel, the cats are reporting that the “baby” has become a “toddler”
There have been a lot of essays and musings this summer about the Mental Load women carry. I think this comic nicely encompasses the scenario. For me, the Mental Load is right up there on the list of reasons I will never have a wedding. Also, it’s nice to have a term for something I feel acutely.

Here is one man’s take on the situation.
My friend Sue was in town for NCECA (National Council on Education for Ceramic Arts) and we went to gallery shoes. Aside from seeing my friend Sue (not pictured) a lot of very good ceramic art, (also not pictured) I enjoyed this sweatshirt.
