My son has an appt. @ 9:15 am for a check-up and the flu vax.  Have you gotten one?  I heard that this years was more comprehensive. Did you suffer any side effects?  I dread having kiddo get a shot because he always is weird for the next day or so (sleep is off, cranky, etc..).

Also, I don't have a GP for myself and I'm seeing a midwife for this pregnancy but I am wanting the flu shot for myself too.  I see that Walgreens and the like advertise that you can get your flu shots there; do I just walk in?  And is that just as good as it being administered by a dr. or nurse in an office?

This will be my first flu shot ever.  My son is old enough to pick it up in activities (or me, as I'm often involved) and I'm about to have a newborn that I definitely don't want exposed.  Do you usually get one?

ETA: I'm going to host Christmas at my house.  My infant will be about 4 weeks old.  Is it rude to suggest family members consider getting the flu vaccine before they come (they'll all have to fly so will be all over crowded airports and stuff)?

ETA2: My son's pediatrician just gave me a shot too.

You really like someone and they ask you out because they like you too (the person knows full well that you like them). They spend 14 hours with you in 2 days and you're feeling happy, and just as you're ready to kiss them, they tell you they're "really sorry" and that they're "seeing someone" but they will "probably break up soon" (key word here is probably, it's def not for sure).

How do you react at that moment?

For those of you who are employed in the US --

How much do you pay per month for health insurance?
What's your deductible?

I feel like my job has really crappy insurance and I want validation.

To Tell or Not To Tell?

I have a disability that affects my cognition to a certain extent -- I'm not very good at multi-tasking, and it takes a while for things to sink in so that I retain them. I'm worried this is going to affect my job because I'm constantly forgetting certain things that I should be doing as second nature if I didn't have the disability. One thing that is really bothering me is that I'm finding it difficult to listen to a customer on the phone while I type. That's an important thing to be able to do in order to get my hold time and after call wrapup time down to almost non-existent.

I didn't mention being disabled when I was applying for and was hired for this job -- it's working at home, it's part-time, I figured it wouldn't matter. Well, now I'm afraid it's going to matter if I can't improve in the time they expect me to improve (I have another month before I'm considered fully trained).

So what would you do, TQC? They can't fire me just because of my disability, and I'm not doing horribly at the job because of it, but I kind of feel I want to tell my team lead so she'll maybe cut me a little slack for a bit while I force my brain into new pathways. Would you tell your team lead, or not say anything and continue papering your monitor and computer with sticky notes and multi-colored signs to remember stuff?

Have you reached out to your Representative and Senators in Congress to give them your opinion on the government shutdown that is supposed to eliminate the Affordable Care Act? What did you say, and what medium did you use? If not, why not.

If you are not a U.S. citizen ... what was the most recent sporting event you watched on television?

Have you ever backed a project at Will you post a link to a current project you like?

I think this is sort of neat- the sort of keychain I was looking for a number of months ago. Hangs on your belt or purse, has a bottle opener, and not huge and bulky.

I also think this is really great and I'm thinking about donating even if I don't want a doll. I really hope they reach their goal:
