I am so sorry. I have parents who hold pseudoscience “doctors” and healing prayer in high regard, and it is so hard to watch them put their health at risk frequently. Is it a topic that is up for any discussion with your parents?
Oh fuck. This doesn’t surprise me given what I know of your folks, but still. Fuck. Hugs.
Not up for discussion whatsoever. I have lots of physical and emotional distance from them and I just have to be ok with them making their choices.
Right now I keep thinking about how if they get corona it will go badly for them, and it’s physically impossible for me to travel to them for the duration of the virus crisis. There is a not insignificant chance that i won’t see one or both of them again.
I’m sorry, Smacky
Smacky, I’m so sorry. That has to be hard on you.
My TC: a client emailed my manager-twice-removed to ask if I was on leave because I hadn’t responded to an email from this morning. I am busy, I’ve left you a voicemail already, it’s still the same day as your query! /complaint
My brain really wanted that to mean Craigslist or similar. Oh boy.
Oh no. I’m so sorry.
You had been seeing a therapist, yes? Can you do a telephone session or video call with the therapist? Or a friend? If only go be able to say “What the fucking fuck??” out loud to someone who can be supportive.
I’m comfortable and warm in bed and I don’t want to get out to do work before I sleep, but if I don’t I can’t guarantee time tomorrow… Trying to motivate myself that it’s easier to edit than to fill the page in the first place…
Kiddo is finding out exactly where The Line is by taking one big step past it. Then being sad, being sent to his room, and after that immediately taking one big step past The Line as soon as possible. Didn’t even make it out of the hallway last time.
Good times, good times. Him wailing dramatically makes it SUPER easy to concentrate on work. /sarcasm
Edit: Round 3. Didn’t even make it past the threshold of his own door.
We are experiencing Line Exploration here too.
my roommate got drunk last night after I went to bed and ate all of my homemade chocolate that I made to get through the apocalypse
Also I woke up to a $3000 fraudulent charge on my credit card.
damn. that… god damn.
Oh no. I’m so, so sorry.
Can any of your coworkers help with new apartment recommendations?
Omg mm! She is escalating quickly
I wish we knew more people around you to help look for a new place!
Nooooo I hope she’s nicer to you after eating all your chocolate! And that your CC company gets the false charge sorted soon!
Eating someone else’s chocolate should be grounds for a federal offence. WTF, lady. I’m so sorry.
My painter is doing a bad job and taking 2x longer than she said she would and wants to be paid more than what we agreed to.
My moving heavy objects person is not where he is supposed to be and takes hours or days to respond to messages.
My hot water tank person is awol.
My plumber didn’t finish everything he was supposed to.
I’m missing two little pieces I need for the kitchen and I can’t just go get them from Ikea for free because of the shutdown. I might end up buying a whole huge part just for these little pieces.
My current house needs paint and some carpentry to be ready to sell but I have no idea who to hire because everyone sucks.
I’m so tired and don’t want to be working on this project. I’ll be less whiny after a nap.
