Baby bunnies have been safely delivered to the wildlife rehab center.  I'm going to miss them, but I'm not going to miss the stress they caused. I also thanked the rehabber that made some phone calls that allowed me to bring the bunnies to the rehab center to begin with.

I'm ready for this week to be over and have a few boring days.  Boring sounds good right about now.

I'm glad everything is all settled.

Glad to hear it! I'm sure you would have done a great job but it's good to have professionals around who might not get so stressed trying to do this the first time.

I have full confidence they'll do a great job and deal with any problems they come across they best they can.  

The place I brought them to is also home to the vet that takes care of my tortoises.  My regular vet isn't comfortable with reptiles and those kinds of critters, so we bring them there instead.  Along with things like check ups and that kind of thing for shelled pets, they also rehab snapping turtles, red-eared sliders, ect... If somebody brings a turtle in that has a cracked shell from being hit by a car or whatever, they put them back together again.  It isn't a fast process, but eventually the turtle or turtles are released back into the wild.

Dear child of mine,

I'm having a bad case of deja-vu.

I don't care if you eat bananas outside while you're talking on the phone, but could you not throw the peels on to the trees?  I went outside and couldn't figure what the bright yellow thing was hanging from a oak tree sapling.    Christmas has come and gone, we don't need to decorate trees. Also, we do have trash cans in the house and outside.

The deja-vu part comes from when you were little and got mad at me because I wanted you to clean your room. Instead of throwing the bag of trash in a trash can, you whipped it over the fence where it ended up dangling from a tree for a few days, much like the current banana peel.

Thanks,

Momma Bear

Rude customers in general who think it's OK to crap on service workers and use us as their personal punching bags or who just view us as being beneath them because we can't afford two vacation homes and a Lamborghini. We've risked our health and the health of our families for the past year to help people maintain a modicum of normality in their lives. The least they could do is treat us with basic humanity and respect.

The internet in the building I live in cut off randomly at like 11:30, which wass during the 5 min break my class had. Anyways, I had to use my fairly limited mobile data to listen to the second half of the lesson. Problem is, signal seems to be really dodgy in this city especially when indoors, so like 4g comes and goes as does regular phone signal. Its really annoying. This pretty much meant that I couldn't attend several meetings that I really needed to attend because group projects are magical like that because I needed to save my data. The good news is that I finally have wifi again, but its 21:40 though I cant tlel how long its been back for because I tried to connect my phonle like 20 mins ago and that wasnt posisble.
Am hoping it doesnt disappear ever again because I have a lot of things to do and I legit cant do any of these things without a reliable internet connection.

Some people say they're 'paying for going out last night' because they have a hangover.

I'm thinking it this morning for a different reason, as I woke up with a red, scaly, itchy neck and red, swollen eyelids - because I dared to wear a necklace for 3 hours. It's not just metal either, it will do this with plastic or cord necklaces too!

My skin (especially my neck) has become progressively more oversensitive and fussy the older I have got, and will break out into an allergic reaction at the slightest thing, it drives me nuts!

I'm 'on the list' for an appointment with a specialist, but my GP has changed my antihistamine to one which is supposed to help with the itching (it doesn't), but now spring is here I've started sneezing all the time, despite barely leaving the house, so I think I'll have to go back to the old one just for my hayfever.

I don't want to bother the doctors at the moment as they must be busy with coronavirus, but the itching is driving me mad and making me really miserable, I'd rather be in pain.

Not just my day, but the past 3-4 months. I think I've confirmed Windows Update is the core of my random RAM and harddrive issues (and possibly a stupid driver I have no idea how to update because stupid Windows Update can't find the correct one, and the stupid Windows archive has 500 pages with almost identical names to go through, and even the current one I have probably has 5-6 almost identical versions. How the %&# do I find the correct one in that mess ? )

Anyway, I've spent almost every day the past few months trying to update to get past whatever issue Windows Update is having, but it gets to some percentage and just "nope, error code", possibly because of that one driver issue - which is for a function I no longer use because I had issues with it not always working properly, so I stopped using it over a year ago.

My laptop is slowed down by it all, to the point where I can barely use a browser when the lagging is at its worst. Never had these issues with Win7 (it updated whenever the heck it wanted, and to heck with any borked drivers or other issues - nothing stands in the way of updates! Windows 10 updates, manages to bork a driver in the process - which is probably what happened, because I don't think I touched that thing - then never wants to update ever again )

So now the update programs constantly use (at least) 3 GB RAM on my computer, run my harddrive at 50-100% whenever they're doing anything at all (looking for updates, trying to update, idling, etc.), probably using a few extra % of the processor too, and slowing everything to snail speed every so often, crashing Explorer or whatever I'm doing if I don't stop and wait for it to think for a while.

*Sigh*

Guess I have to figure out if that driver is the solution - never had to figure out other drivers than graphic ones before, so I'm curious if I'll have any luck with that (but first, a backup...)

Bessie III's heart (power supply) gave out and I need to replace it.

I really need to check it out.

In other news, I can't find time to play The Sims 3 nor back up my work.

Every cleaning article/video on the internet ever:
"You just need some things you probably have in your cupboard, baking soda, white vinegar, soda crystals, soap flakes...........other obscure old fashioned stuff.............."

Me (woman in my 40s):
"It's 2021, not 1921 - things I have in my cleaning cupboard include bleach, brand name bathroom spray, brand name kitchen spray, brand name floor cleaner, flushable toilet wipes, cistern blocks, flushable toilet bowl cleaner blocks, antibacterial wipes, brand name window cleaner, washing up liquid, brand name mould remover, washing pods (non-biological), brand name oven cleaner, brand name degreaser................literally nothing you apparently expect everyone to have."

I don't mind going on Ebay to buy stuff, but come on, at least be realistic - no-one has any of that stuff in their cupboards anymore.
