Shaking my head at why such a thread exists...

Creating narcissistic threads.

And 3.5 hours in...

Waiting for current Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to go to jail

 

Yes.  Along with Doug Ford and a bunch of both of their entourage.

Getting ready to work the night shift. My job is an essential service so it's not shut down. 

Same here.  I'm about to get in the shower, dinner's going to go in the microwave, then I'm off to yet another midnight shift.

Oh and the bonus?  All the after hours shifts are done in the building because of the requirement to work on physical equipment in person.  This means I incur the commute costs.  My overall pay's down because of cancelled projects and overtime.  Meanwhile, the officeworkers get to work from home, save the commute costs, and benefit from that $400 work from home tax credit so they're doing alright.  Meanwhile anyone who actually has to go to work at work gets nothing for going out there and putting their health at risk.  See first quote from Benton Harper.

Knocking my To Do list out of the ball park.  So much 'Administrative Duties' after someone dies. OMG.

Oh I know.  It’s painful to go through and there’s so much to do.  I hope you’re holding up on through it all.

On my end, I’m just winding down the evening in the living room with the cat and a fire.  It’s starting to burn down now and I’m beginning to feel the warmth on the bottom of my feet.

I love the whole experience of watching and listening and smelling a fire on a winter night, especially as it begins to burn down and the coals make that click sound as they land in the bottom of the hearth and the occasional shuffle as the logs rearrange themselves.

Holding up extremely well, not really painful. (this may sound crass, but I cried A LOT when ETS axed the trolleys - even upset to the point of illness, but am holding out well over this - something definitely wrong with me LOL) Thanks for caring though, means a lot to me.  🙂

Just have to deal with the banks on Tuesday.  Moms Will will most likely have to be probated. It would have been simpler if mom and I had joint accounts, but it was so difficult to synchronize my schedule, the banks schedule, her schedule and a ride to both banks that we never got it done before she broke her hip, in and out of hospitals, broke the other hip and then into LTC. 

Just have to get a nice card for the nursing home tomorrow, then gonna treat myself to lunch. Nothing planned at all for the weekend, except get groceries.

Pretty much get 'er all done. Will have to pick up moms cheque (credit) from the nursing home when they call, and collect her ashes from the funeral home when they call. Just sucks that the weather is getting colder now.

Good to hear you're doing ok.  My dads ashes were delivered, still not sure how I feel about that.

How much time did they give you to vacate the LTC?  I got 72 hours, no fan of that place...

They didn't give me a time.  Right now they are not taking new residents because of covid, so I am sure there would not have been a rush. However, knowing they were itching to clean  the room and paint the walls, so that the room would be ready, I collected the stuff as soon as I was able to arrange a ride. So about five days after she passed.

Going through a box of photos, newspaper clippings and assorted things that mom had squirreled away. Mostly stuff about her mom and dad. Pretty interesting. A neat window into the past and my own history. I will have to sit down with my son and explain as much as I can about these things to him.

I fear that with each passing generation, these items will become increasingly less significant. I hope I am wrong.

Looking at Clueless trolls (Aka YouTube Comment bots) who were unleashed under the bridge and spamming girl porn links to people's channels what contains virus on YouTube. Hopes YouTube CEO will resign or step down for not responding to porn comments bots, sex fraud schemes and not doing anything to help during the COVID-19 pandemic including criticism.

Excellent, perhaps Canadians will finally pay attention to their country and their current leaders failings...

Except for the Bahamian Government (Free National Movement including the 4th Prime Minister of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas The Most Hon. Dr. Hubert A. Minnis ) who were playing politics (dirty games), locking down the whole country after the country recorded its first  Covid-19 cases, didn't do anything to curb the spread of COVID-19 Pandemic during the first and second waves, closing down all of the businesses for 3 months, did not do enough with testing, contract testing and other false information etc.

I've been noticing that a lot too. This has been going on for a while now (sometimes different links, but same idea overall). I just report them whenever I see them (a couple of times I got those spam comments on my videos as well, but I moderate all comments on my videos and took those spam comments down). Interestingly it's always from a different account, all of which are completely blank if you click on their profile.
