In America, the minimum wage is $7.25 an hour. In Australia it’s $15.96 an hour. Australia’s economy is doing very well. America’s is in the toilet. So that’s interesting. - ichindar
ETA: The Australian and American dollars are roughly equivalent right now. Some people have pointed…
While I support any dislike of conservatives and their dumb opinions I do not support annoying Internet people that spout shit that they have no idea about. So as an Australian can I just say that while the wage you earn in Australia is significantly higher SO ARE THE PRICES YOU PAY FOR THINGS. The Australian and US dollar could be equivalent but that would still be irrelevant because shit here in the U.s. is dirt cheap to go along with the smaller wages! If you made u.s. wages in australian you would be homeless (except you wouldn’t cos social programs are better in Australia heh) All my Australian friends and family will attest to that, shit in Australia is expensive, I was there last year! Also saying the richest economy in the world is “in the toilet” doesn’t make sense either that would be be like Cyprus or Greece, obviously. #macroeconomics
Me and the kids made almond milk the other day because apparently most store bought kinds contain carrageenan which is not great for you!
It was super easy, just soak a cup of almonds overnight, rinse, pop off the skin and then run through the juicer with three cups of water (if you have a juicer that can handle it that is. We have a hurom slow juicer that will basically juice anything but otherwise you could use a blender and nut bag!) and voila! put it in a mason jar and it saves for 2-3 days.
#belatedblogging April 25th was Julien’s first birthday! Can I just talk about my immense love for him for a sec?
Jujubeanbug is my sunshine. He’s so quirky, he loves to dance (no one can drop it like juju) almost as much as he loves to clean (his fave birthday present, hands down, was a broom), he’s weirdly smart and so bright, he’s obsessed with dogs and me and Ross both swear his first official word was bobcat. He’s always laughing and smiling, he’s incredibly stubborn and driven but also really easy going. He’s got a perfect lil chubby belly and gives head bonks on command and has awesome sticky uppy hair. I’m really not sure how I got so lucky to be this one’s mama he makes me smile and laugh and exclaim “youre soooo cutteeee, gah!” all day every day. Happy birthday my littlest bug!
Our new washing machine is about to give me a panic attack. Why are there so many options?? And where is the “I just want my clothes clean, okay??” button?
