This online venture is for friendship and community more than anything else, and it fascinates me that the PNW seems so lightly represented here! What, we have more options and freedoms seek out interesting folks in person?

My Lutheran upbringing gave way long ago a world of information and the myriad of cultures that join us all in community. I have enjoyed Unitarian fellowships for helping me see what a broad scope of wisdom is available from so many sources.

My 2 kids are each married, healthy, happy, and raising families of their own. Experiencing life with grandies has brought a wealth of love and joy I could not have imagined.

tinkercreek comments on Apr 2, 2020:
The world is presenting all of us with some incredibly stressful situations right now, and most of us manage to continue living our best lives right on through it. Then, WHAM, along comes that pesky little straw, a minor issue, a moment, that pushes someone or someones to find themselves unable to deal with anything at all. Not being able to see the big picture with clarity is a common result. Finding some space and time to decompress and gain perspective sounds like a positive move. Your life is at a very tender place right now with the relationship, baby and another on the way, and many of us have experienced the same. Please do what you can to get time for yourself, also. Try to embody all that kindness and love you have, and focus on all you have to look forward to. Be well, and know how many people care about you, and Frankie, and the babies.
A little dated 😁.

I made the decision to delete all my dating app accounts.
tinkercreek comments on Apr 1, 2020:
I agree on finding the freedom from being tied to those sites, and the stress of not wanting to miss "the one"! Much better to relax and live your life, open to discoveries along the way.

i was keto for 3 months then i went to mexico and ate all the tacos and never went keto again.
tinkercreek comments on Mar 27, 2020:
It was mentioned to me that Keto should only be maintained for about 8-9 mos. It was right about that time I just didn't feel as good with it anymore, but I find carbs far less appealing than previously.

As coronavirus fears shut schools, work-at-home parents are trying not to freak out.
tinkercreek comments on Mar 17, 2020:
One of my staff has 18 yr old twin boys, a 16 yr old girl, and 12 yr old boy - on her own, as a fairly recent widow. She has been working hard to complete her B.A., with finals and last papers due this week. As she looked forward to wrapping up her undergrad and moving into getting her masters in education, Oregon has just closed schools through April. I've given her extra time off and let her use a quiet space in the office a few times to regain study ground from suddenly having 4 kids at home all day, but have seen her stress rise steadily. I must admit that I look forward to her next three days off, fearful of a huge emotional meltdown, crisis at home, or illness. My little life is looking pretty good!
