    Re: Newbies Nest

    Hi, All:

    Not much to add today as I'll call yesterday a wasted day. I read, scrolled, watched TV and did little else. I was trying to rest but after all it seems I need more to do during the day - I was totally stir crazy by the end of the day.

    Ava, glad you got to see your mom and good for you for setting boundaries. So sorry for that young woman who was hurt. How nice that you can provide a safe, loving place for her to land.

    It is unconceivable to me that you've had zero cases for three weeks. We are obviously going the opposite direction here. And people are just not doing what they need to do. I have a friend whose whole family, mom, aunts, uncles, cousins, quarantined themselves for 14 days - grocery delivery, etc - so they could spend a week together last week (they are all working from home or took a week off). On about day 3 it came out that one of the uncles had gotten an invitation to play golf and had done so!! Everyone was so mad, but that's how it goes. You never know what another person has done or is motivated to do.

    Happy SOBER Sunday. I will be getting out and about today!

    Pav

    Re: Newbies Nest

    Greetings Nesters,

    Typical fall weather here today, mostly clouds & chilly temps. My grandson has gone home so I will likely have to restock the kitchen tomorrow, Lol

    Ava, glad to hear you got to see your Mom after all this time & your son as well.
    Very sorry to hear about your daughter’s friend though. Drug use can hurt so many people besides the user.
    We are jealous over here hearing your Covid news. People must have behaved & followed the guidelines issued by the government. Too many people are not doing that here. Why folks refuse to take this virus seriously is beyond me.

    Pav, relaxing can be hard to do when you’re used to being in constant motion, I get that.
    Sorry to hear your friend’s uncle selfishly screwed up the Thanksgiving plans. I hope they don’t let him forget that anytime soon.

    I delivered an embroidery order this afternoon & have more to get to work on. I’m happy that I can help people get Christmas gifts for folks on their list at a reasonable price.
    Hello to everyone & wishing a safe night in the nest for all!

    Happy Un Hung Monday everyone. I was woken up early this morning by construction across the street, good thing I was not hungover because that would have been terrible. I would have just kept my puffy eyes shut and would keep sleeping.

    Ava, you are so nice to help your daughter's friend. I haven't heard about the job but my 'oil experience' sometimes scares people away.

    Hi ya Byrdie, hope you are well and staying away from your mean spirited neighbours.

    Pav, I agree with Lav that relaxing is tough to do when you are in constant motion.

    NS, I would love to see your new dog. I bet she/he is cute.

    Hello Walk, Satz, glad to see you here. I have been unemployed for a year now...I understand the struggle even though we are in different countries.

    Don't drink today. It's gross- right Pauly?

    Re: Newbies Nest

    Walk, congrats on your 100 days! It was at that point that I felt as if I had a handle on being AF. It’s just a matter of maintenance! I’m so proud of you. I left my job in a huff at the end of a January. I had a customer call me today with a question and I was able to help him. He told me if I get back into the business to let him know, that made me feel good. I found networking to be the way I found my last job. Heck, it’s hard to get past any gatekeeper these days with just a resume, reaching out to people who are doing what you want to do was the only way I was able to find a job, I was amazed at how transparent I was on paper, but knowing someone made all the difference. As they say, it’s not what you know,nits who you know. Just a thought.
    I’m having a heck of a time with vertigo. I know it’s a result of these ear drops, but I don’t want to stop them until I’ve finished the recommended course. That will be Wednesday. They make my head spin. I am spinning to the right, it’s weird. Being nauseous all day stinks.
    Hugs to all,Byrdie

    Re: Newbies Nest

    Good evening Nesters,

    Chilly & mostly sunless here today, typical fall day.
    Ran out for a few necessities & then came right home. I don’t even feel like I want to be out there until this covid mess starts to clear.
    Our son informed us he will not be coming over for Thanksgiving after all due to the fact that 1/3 of his entire big city fire dept. is out sick with Covid. It’s that bad
    Trying to stay safe is getting harder & harder.

    Byrdie, I am sorry to hear about the vertigo. Ear drops should not be doing that, what a shame. Perhaps you have an inner ear infection causing the vertigo. Call your doc please & report those symptoms
    Take care & be careful you don’t fall.

    Narilly, I got. Up at 7 am Saturday because I had a mattress delivery scheduled between 8:30 & 11:30. It actually showed up at 1:30 pm so I was not thrilled I got up so early, haha!
    So many people around the world are out of work now, it’s so sad.

    Hello to the rest of the group. & wishing everyone a safe night in the nest!

    Lav

    Just a quick note to add I planted amaryllis bulbs for each of you all different colors and textures. Just as versatile and wonderful success stories as you all have shared to celebrate the season.
    It’s been a year since my son passed from al induced heart attack. I still miss him every minute and planted a Xmas tree in my 3 acre garden for him. He loved working in the garden. Have designed a whole sections for all his fav plants.
    Sending blessings your way to stay safe over the holidays.

    Hugs Shades

    Re: Newbies Nest

    Shades - your garden sounds wonderful, and it's obvious you put a lot of thought and care into it. What a beautiful way to remember and honor your son. Sending you hugs of support - I'm sure this is a difficult time of year.

    Nar - I didn't realize you'd been out of work a year at this point, mainly because 2020 has simultaneously crawled and flown by. Any word on the contact tracing work?

    Pav - I can't imagine not having enough to do! I feel like my list gets longer if I just breathe in its direction, and it's exhausting because every task ticked off seems to unearth 2-5 new ones I didn't see coming. Sigh... I hope you had a wonderful day today!

    Lav - I can relate to your quickie outing to get essentials, as I hardly want to set foot in any type of store or other public place. People here are pretty good about mask-wearing but cases are still surging.

    Byrdie - I'm so sorry to hear about the vertigo. It does seem like the drops shouldn't be causing that. If you don't have an ear infection, I wonder if the "Epley Maneuver" would give you some relief. Google and youtube can show you what this is and what/how it helps. Maybe check it out?


    Hellos and waves everyone, and happy Monday/Tuesday to you all. Stay safe and don't drink!

    Re: Newbies Nest

    Hi nesters

    Shades what a wonderful idea for your son, thinking of you on the anniversary of your sons death and can i please have the bulb that flowers purple (if there is one). xx

    Byrd i hope you feel better soon and your vertigo settles down

    How is your foot Pav? I hope its getting better

    Walk, glad you are feeling better. Keep taking it one day at a time and you will be fine. In 8 days it has been 7 years for me and each day i still do öne day at a time. Keep safe from covid please.

    Had a migraine today so been laying in the dark. i am sure they are hormonal now. I never got them this frequently before. As i am the coordinator of headache i should chat to one of the drs maybe!

    I went to the chemist today and so many people are still wearing masks. i wore one when in the chemist. It looks like they are a way of our life and people are being really cautious which is great. i am sure when it gets warmer they wont be worn as much.

    I think i am a mechanic, the fuel pump was nearly gone, bad fuel and rust in my petrol tank. My mechanic charged me $225 to fix it all. i love my mechanic. if i went to a shop it would have cost over a grand. This car i parked in the garage for five years as i had too many fines on it. He got it up and running and i am paying off the fines. its ten years old. Sad that during my drinking years that drinking was more important than keeping my car going. Now i can afford to get it fixed and keep the electricity on. All a big bonus.

    Tonight is "Addicted Australia"which focuses on about 7 people who are addicted to al, meth, gambling, heroin etc. Up to episode 3 and it makes me remember what it felt like in the early days, the euphoria of giving up and going a few days then the cravings hitting and dealing with life in general. I just keep hoping they make it.

    take care xx

    Re: Newbies Nest

    Hi, All:

    Wow, Lav. 1/3? That's a lot. Apparently that's a problem in hospitals as well - they may have enough beds but they don't have staff. Sorry he won't make it for Thanksgiving, but that sounds like a good idea. Apparently there were 1 million flights on Sunday, so I guess people won't be staying home. Let's stay safe!

    Wags, I have PLENTY to do - I just didn't do it. That's what make relaxing hard... I felt like a procrastinating college student!

    Ava, sorry about your migraine. It does seem those docs you work with could help? Hope you feel better. You, too, Byrdie! Tomorrow's Wednesday, so not long now.

    Nar, will the construction be there long? I feel like our neighbors have had SOMETHING going on for a long time, so there is always construction noise outside. Still hoping for a job for you!

    Shades, that garden sounds beautiful and a great tribute to your son.

    Today is my mini-Friday as I have Wed-Friday off. I am lucky and grateful! Although we're writing a grant that is due the week we return so likely I'll be working some. At least I won't have to set an alarm.

    Have a wonderful day, all.

    Pav
