When writing a CD, check that you have a CD in your computer. I still can't believe it took me five attempts before realizing that my computer was empty. I must be more tired than I thought.

Just because she is having a PTSD meltdown doesn't make me worthless.
Just because I feel worthless by not being able to help doesn't justify falling into depression.
Just because I'm falling into depression is no reason to give up on the new job, the move, etc.
Just because this has happened before, and I'm STILL not sure how to deal with it happening, doesn't justify giving up on her.

When buying something, always check you have all the pieces. Otherwise, you may, like me, end up with an electric kettle without its base.

You might want to look into counseling for yourself.

As soon as the new paycheck kicks in, that is most definitely on the agenda. Until then, I just have to muddle through.

Don't turn on the toaster oven and kettle at the same time! After 5 or 6 fuses, you would think I would remember.

I wish I could have them plugged in elsewhere, but the way my tiny kitchen is set up, there is only one plug accessible.

If you're going to eat the nasturtium leaves while you trim the plant back you should check underneath them for caterpillars and spiders before putting them in your mouth!

I'm pretty sure that I didn't eat any bugs but not 100% certain.

I probably shouldn't have to tell myself that "nasturtium" is not a scientific term for something nasty, but that's where my mind has gone.

It sounds like a special room where you plot nasty things.

"If anyone needs me I'll be in my Nasturtium."

Sooeygun, would it help to get in the habit of keeping them unplugged when not in use?

The extra action required to plug the second one in might be enough to remind you that the first was already running; plus which, especially as the wiring is dubious, keeping them unplugged when you're not around is a good safety measure.

(A second plug available in the kitchen would only help if it were on a different circuit. Two on the same circuit can only take the same total load. As your circuit can't run two common kitchen appliances at once, it's either very old or something's wrong with the wiring -- or, maybe, something elsewhere in the house but on the same circuit is drawing a lot of power.)

When someone says "I still can't figure out what Trump has done that has everyone so upset" they aren't really asking for enlightenment, they're having a laugh at the expense of "everyone". Don't rise to their bait.
