To commemorate my husband turning the big 3-0 this year I knew we had to do something EPIC. After much thought, consideration and Pinteresting (is that a word yet?) I settled on a beer tasting. Here's how we threw a 30th Beer Bash…

Since the wedding, we have purchased a house and adopted a couple of cats. My son is going into second grade. I'm currently pursuing Redken color certification and a cosmetology instructor's license. Nick left the university he used to work for and is currently working for a marketing firm. We are going into our third year as Old Marrieds, but we've been together for seven years total.
For those of us in the middle of the fall season where EVERYTHING MUST BE APPLE AND PUMPKIN, here's my Megan-simple Hot Spiced Cider recipe!
My husband and I are looking to move out of our apartment and purchase this 1977 Geodesic Dome. Are there any Dome Dwellers among the Homies that can offer us the possible pros and cons of moving into a geodesic dome?
I'm trying to figure out how to fit all our stuff (and newly acquired stuff) into our little Honda CRV, lil S is running around with the dog and dahma (grandma), and we are about to head out on the open road to see the dad and aunty who are working there. It's funny, really… seven months ago we were in North Carolina, having just moved out of our apartment and finished locking up all our belongings in storage. We traveled down here with our dad/partner who had to leave after a week to venture out for new work opportunities on the West Coast. Back then, I had no idea how everything would work out.
As a non-theist pagan, I felt like I was seriously missing out on that fellowship and community that my dad has found at his church. It's hard to find that when you don't belong to a mainstream religion. Or if the local branch of the mainstream religion you belong to is full of assholes, because who needs that? But here are the options that may prove helpful if you feel like this is missing from your life.
Due to some boring logistics, we will probably end up placing the washing machine in the garage. The problem is that there is no drain there, and it's cost prohibitive to install one right now. Our solution is to recycle the greywater from the wash. In the summer we will use it to water the lawn. However, in the winter the temperature drops below freezing, and we don't really need an ice skating rink in our back yard. What ideas do you have for recycling greywater in the winter?
Long story short: I'm now divorced. But what do I do with all the stuff — pictures, ketubah, cards, etc? There's absolutely no reconciliation possible, so I feel like there's no need to save it, but for the sake of my mental health, do I just box it up and throw the box off a cliff?
