On Convenient Cooking, But at a Cost

@Sarah Rain@facebook Ahhhh, I see. So I guess my problem is my tendency to gravitate towards things with fresh veggies. I guess in my heart I knew that, I was just hoping for a magic secret you had that was making the difference. I just don't like frozen veggies as much. I should maybe try incorporating Tofu into meals. Eliminating meat definitely helps too. I do use lots of beans and stuff, but I can only handle beans so much.

On Convenient Cooking, But at a Cost

@CMD+click Freezing about 1/2 of the batch in individual portions helps with that a bit. Then you can alternate between the portions of frozen stuff and whatever batch of stuff you have made for the week.

On Women At Work, At Home, & At Rest -- JK, At Work Again

@cryptolect Oh but he couldn't possibly get a less full-filling job while she attends school so that they could be together. That only makes sense to do when a lady does it.

On The Cost of Becoming a U.S. Permanent Resident, Part I

@Cat Named Louise Immigration in Canada is a complex beast. There are a variety of pathways to permanent residence in Canada (family sponsorship, ecomonic immigration, some investor programs (which may be closed?), plus refugees) all with different requirements and steps.

On The Cost of Becoming a U.S. Permanent Resident, Part II

@Lily Rowan Yeah, I am very surprised by that part. Needing many photos is pretty standard for immigration, and I am surprised that not seen all the time by that lady.

On Broke With Bad Skin, UNTIL ...

@lemonhead3159 I also had terrible acne from the ages of about 19 - 25 and going on birth control is for sure what made it go away for me as well. I still get the odd pimple here and there, but that is much more manageable than what i had before.

On One Is The Loneliest Number But Also An Okay Number Maybe

@savagerenata As a counterpoint, I was a shy, awkward anxious child and I did have a sibling. I don't think having a second child will only maybe prevent those issues when you don't want one, or have the time/resources to handle it is really giving a kid their best chance.

On Low-Cost Ways of Entertaining Aunt Flo

@BillfoldMonkey Instead is probably actually worse option because it sits so much higher up, near the IUD strings (or whatever you call them). There are definitely people that use the more traditional reusable cups with IUDs and they say the key is to just make sure to break the seal before removing.
