I replace my phone when it is 100% dead, unworkable and basically smoking. This has turned out to be every 2-4 years, depending on how frequently I drop my phone and from how high.
I am American and I immigrated to Canada when I was 24. I have lived here for nine years. The health care in Canada is wonderful. I am really grateful for it. It is not perfect, but I have received really good care here.
Oh man, new baby + trying to work is the worst worst worst. You are doing a great job.
I LOVE (love, love, love) my pets but this is so many thousands of dollars that my mind is a little boggled.
@muggles I full-on laughed out loud.
What the hell is up with the italicized "pan from the local supermercado"? Was this article written by Alex Trebek?
Oh, Dawn! You are breaking my heart.
"One time, while he and I were in the backyard in Vermont, he confessed to me that he didn’t like the patio furniture my grandma had bought. “Why don’t you say something?” I asked. “Because it doesn’t matter,” he said, “and that’s how you stay married.”" This is so so true and I love it. The whole article was fantastic, but that was my favorite.
@cupcake_engineer YES! This was my other thought, where do you live in Canada that you are paying $200 (except obvs. not actually $200) for a pap smear?!
I'm very interested in what things cost around the world, but super disinterested in combing through a bunch of $22/hr emotional upheaval to calculate that oh, the pap smear/treatment/soap actually cost $48 all told. (NB: I'm kind of a curmudgeon and bad at math.)
