    LK, I should lend you my dog. He announces every UPS and FedEx truck that comes down the street. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Today, I got no packages, only bills.

    Today, I returned to TORC after several weeks – and found it quite different than how I remembered! ๐Ÿ˜‚

    I used to be Thor ‘n’ Oakenshield on the previous forums (quite liked that username, too, but had no recollection whatsoever of the password I originally used), but I hope I’ll be able to fit in comfortably here on these brand-new forums – everything seems so sleek and modern! As for my absence, that had to do with a ruptured appendix and emergency surgery that left me feeling pretty awful for a few weeks: but I’m pretty much fully recovered now, no longer feel like my insides are trying to strangle me alive, and I can’t wait to explore these new forums fully!

    Didn’t get much sleep last night as a result of being sick. (Ate something that didn’t agree with me.)

    As a result, today I’m doing……not much of anything really. Too tired.

    Welcome back, Thor’n.

    Today…

    I’ve gone grocery shopping – because even in a pandemic one needs to eat and I’ve never liked to order my fresh produce online. You never know what they’ll pick for you. And getting rotten fruit no way ๐Ÿ˜›

    I’ve also written two one-shot stories and published one on my blog.

    And now I’m back at sending emails to get a new job because unfortunately for now, writing isn’t paying the bills.

    That is really more time consuming than you might think.

    Today I noticed spambot posts in threads donโ€™t disappear with the spambot deletion, so in the end they accomplish what they set out to do.

    I also noticed today the same spambots here are the ones that invaded Arwen Undomiel the same day.

    Today I’m taking a class in creative writing.

    I have a little catch-up to do in class and assignment but it’s coming up nicely.

    And then writing some more cover letters to apply for jobs ๐Ÿ˜›

    What is somewhat reassuring is that there are offers in my field. So keeping my fingers crossed.

    Today is DST but the thing about having young kids? They donโ€™t care ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚… whatโ€™s an hour less or more to sleep?

    They just want to be up and play.

    Also preparing for a job interview tomorrow. With a hiring company so not yet the actual employer. Keep your fingers crossed please ๐Ÿ˜Š

    Today I was told that I was too qualified for the job I interviewed for… too much experience managing teams – sometimes big ones – so theyโ€™re afraid Iโ€™ll be bored.

    On the other hand the reference I got from one of my former clients was stellar and really appreciated. Feels good to read.

    Also sunny but cold (11C vs the 27c from last week ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜‚)… and back to teaching school to my eldest and figuring out activities for the youngest since schools and daycares are all closed.

    Finding a job while managing two kids and a stressed out, exhausted (and thus moody) husband… not easy ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ.

    earendil—-sorry about the job. That sucks! Too qualified, HA! Tell them no one is too qualified to earn money so they can feed themselves.

    Today was a beautiful day, and I wish I could have went for a nice long walk or something, but I had to stay home waiting for a delivery.

    Sometimes I despise Amazon. Why can’t they ever deliver in the morning? Then I wouldn’t waste the whole day waiting for them. But nooooooooooo! It’s always late afternoon, early evening when they get here.

    Of course, if I were to count on them coming late and go somewhere, THEN they’d show up at 9am!

    @earendil – That is usually the terms used for age discrimination. Sorry it didn’t work out.

    @Ladykat – Your delivery drivers are probably poorly-paid, overworked sub-contractors?

    Today was a good day to order Italian takeaway from a lovely locak restaurant called Basillico.

      @Arassuil, didnโ€™t think about that but it does make sense. About to turn 40, mother of 2 young ones; so much room for discrimination here… that does lend some perspective.

      @Ladykat , yeah well seems like they donโ€™t care… and in a pandemic with a husband making โ‚ฌ0 until restaurants can reopen it is a challenge.

      Another sunny day today, less chill (16c no coat today); this morning spent working with the eldest, this afternoon outside with the youngest while his brother is doing gardening with my parents ๐Ÿ˜‚. He loves it; Iโ€™m such a city person, itโ€™s fun to see him enjoy working the earth (never liked it myself even as a kid at my grandparents)…

    Posting after myself but I donโ€™t care; turning 40 today and I canโ€™t help but reminisce the time and the friendships I made on TORC that have carried me through the years.

    Thank you all.

      Thank you Tooks ๐Ÿ˜˜

      I guess age is a state of mind ๐Ÿ˜œ. I’m feeling old these days though….

      Tbh it was a weird day – it started really nice and then somehow it turned a bit sour.

      Really grateful to @elengil for the evening/night chat; it really cheered me up.

      And I had some nice champagne (a bottle is left… should think of drinking it ๐Ÿ˜œ)

      But I did get some lovely presents: Le Guin’s Books of Earthsea, which believe it or not I’ve never read. A book by Stephen King On Writing – a Memoir on the Craft and expecting a few extra this week (not available earlier), including a couple of recommandations from the book club on this very website ๐Ÿ˜„

      Ok the emoji on my computer are showing weirdly vs those on my phone. I guess we’ll see when I post.

    Today my arm is sore.

    Yay for that. ๐Ÿคจ
