    I'm the same, although much more on the introvert side than the extrovert. But sometimes I can spend the day with a friend and we can talk for hours. The nice thing about being in a family of introverts is that I can kind of get some alone time even when everyone is home.

    Yuck to all that. I'll eat corn, potatoes and cucumbers and iceberg lettuce but really they are just vessles for ranch dressing and it's the only way I eat them. I'll eat apples, strawberries, good peaches, some grapes, bananas when I'm in the mood only otherwise ick and oranges. Love lemonade. I'll eat tomato sauce but not the chunks of tomatoe, texture, onions if they are cooked down in stew etc, carrots if they are cooked through and soft in stew/soup.

    And yes I've tried many of these things in one form or another.

    Lol I think we would get along just fine. I will eat basically any fruit known to man. My least favorites are raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries. I don’t do chunks in my sauce either. If I eat salsa or have pasta sauce I pick around the chunks. I’m exactly the same with carrots. They have to be cooked through and soft. I love carrots in stew and I like little ones in soup.

    I cannot like either of these comments. Squash, celery, peas, carrots?? I love vegetables much more than fruits and I'll eat just about any vegetable.

    Well, I've never liked super sweet foods like peeps but I can't eat near as much sugar as I used to. Age. It stinks.

    Thanks for the heads up. Not a buyer at that price point. They need to learn to offer a better discount. 50% or a 100% bonus match and I may think about it.

    That could sweeten the deal a bit.

    This. I can literally sleep anywhere at any moment. DH can't and is super jelly that I'm sleeping seconds after my head hits the pillow. LOL

    Same here. I come off as an extrovert in the right environment so most people I get to know are shocked I am an introvert. My job requires me to be "on stage" everyday in front of different groups of people, which I do enjoy. I've run FB groups on Disney cruises and organized a Pink Champagne Girls event, private mixologies, turned the Detective Agency Muppet game into a drinking game etc. Among our groups of friends I'm usually the instigator for a group trip or cruise. I'm even fine talking to people in the Disney bubble (parks, cruises and ABD). So, I come off as an extrovert. Heaven forbid I have to go to a party, wedding, shower or some other social gathering that I didn't organize and with people I don't know and I am an internal disaster wondering how soon can I leave. I even felt that way at my own wedding which was fun and I enjoyed but couldn't wait for it to be over. I'm even reluctant to ask anyone at a store where something is located. Anytime I do a Myers-Briggs personality test I get INJT or INTP. Plus, I need to be alone to recharge. So I may look like an extrovert on the outside, I'm not.

    Fortunately, most of my friends are also introverts so we totally get each other. DH gets me and can easily tell when I need to be alone in my own head and when I'm recovered and can function again.

    I get like this too, but SO and I just do our own thing on the couch. There’s no pressure to talk or act normal for me like in other social situations lol.


    This is exactly how I feel. I feel like there is pressure around other people and with my SO there is no pressure.


    OMG how lol. I get the 90/10 or 93/7 and that’s about $6 for a pound here. Also, do you have tax on groceries? VA taxes groceries. NY didn’t, only prepared food. My groceries were cheaper in NY I’d go to the ethnic supermarkets and get great prices. Halal meat was also way cheaper than going to a Stop and Shop and just buying regular meat so I’d buy it lol fruit and vegetables though were super cheap I could have gotten anything for under a $1 a pound lol

    I can’t seem to find any unicorns but if I do I will share in our reddit group lol

    Buffalo wings on the bone are my absolute favorite lol

    Idk what our 90/10 and 93/7 cost here since we don’t buy it. I know it’s 2x-3x more than the 80/20. We don’t mind eating the one with more fat. No tax on groceries here. Our fruit is okay but not always a great price. Our grapes our usually on sale for $1.99/lb but only on sale. Apples are $1.69/lb and sometimes $0.99/lb on sale.

    I looked at that one before. Can you review it? We’ve never done legoland because so close to Disney...plus we never rent a car. I’m a bad mom.

    I love peeps!


    So for the longest time, my fruit/vegetable consumption consisted of corn, green beans, potatoes, bananas, and applesauce. Not apples, but applesauce.

    I've learned to like bell peppers, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus, even brussel sprouts cooked certain ways. I'll eat salad but really only with ranch and lots of croutons.

    I don't do red sauce, no marinara for me. I'm not an onion fan and will pick around them if possible. I never cook with more than onion powder (it's a texture thing) so I've trained DH to chop them very fine so they cook down to almost nothing. He loves onions so I tell him he has to cut them if he wants them. I will only eat tomatoes in very teeny chunks in salsa or something.

    As for ground beef, now I'm trying to buy it at Sam's always because it tends to be $2.50 to $2.90 a lb for 90/10... it seems the best price otherwise is $4/lb on sale. I haven't bought 80/20 in awhile now. I miss no tax on groceries back in NE.... not sure if that's still the case though. It makes a big difference!

    I dont eat fish. I will eat shrimp cooked certain ways. I will eat crab and lobster, but it's not the big thrill to me it is to some so I dont go out of my way, and its typically in a soup or pasta. I have no desire to be deconstructing my food at the table lol. I just started eating meat loaf in the last few years. I used to eat my steaks med rare but cant anymore for the most part. I cant do pink in a burger after my schooling lol. I only buy boneless chicken breasts at the store, but I will only eat the drumsticks on fried chicken (and DH says I leave too much because I cant eat the stringy pieces anymore...). No wings for me.

    I love sweets, but no fruit desserts. No fruit pies, pastries, sauces on my chocolate cake. No berries in muffins. I'm not a fan of whipped cream unless its homemade, so I'll either push it to the side or if it's a shake I stir it into the ice cream. The exceptions here are I love pumpkin pie and it must be served with a healthy scoop of cool whip-must be the midwesterner in me :D

    I rarely use condiments. Occasionally ketchup. Dont do mustard, mayo, etc. I will put butter on a lunch meat sandwich to keep the bread from getting dry. I only started eating sour cream in the last few years. I love milk and cheese but no cottage cheese or yogurt for me. At least I do more BBQ and seasoning than I used to. I still dont add bbq sauce but will eat it at bbq places, like famous Dave's where its already on there. My mom used to only be able to put Lawrys Seasoning on my food at home

    I know you all care dearly about my diet.
