Insurance rep coming to look at roof after tornado passed.
Edit to add - new roof. YAY!!
Right now the front yard (or at least the gravel part) is getting torn up because the septic tank started backing up last night.
Lesson learned. If you tend to use a lot of toilet paper to wipe your nether regions—especially if it’s something thick like Cottonelle, don’t flush it down the toilet! Just toss it in the trash can.
Did I mention that my housemate with dementia comes home on Friday and we are hoping this gets cleared out and area covered with fresh gravel before she comes home??? She will absolutely have a freakin’ cow if she comes home and sees her yard tore up. If she finds out I did it—she’ll kick me out, tout suite.
Lately I've noticed a bit of an issue when I eat certain dairy products. I end up in the bathroom two to three hours later. So far it's milk and ice cream that have been causing problems, which is a shame because I love ice cream. I'm not big on milk.
I'm eating some good food that I brought home from a local restaurant for me (and my housemate when she comes back home tonight).
I've noticed something interesting about this place. This is a country cafe in rural north Georgia, been here for ages....but all the servers and staff are Latino! They appear to be fairly well-staffed, their dining room is open for business and they seem to be pretty popular with the locals (they serve good home cooking and lots of it--plates are loaded with food).
Meanwhile, the brand-new Wendy's a few miles away is unable to open up its dining room, not because of you-know-what. They simply don't have enough help. They've started to close early, too.
The contrast is something else.
During this past week of hell, due to a load of translations and editing, I am slowly noticing that I'm getting more and more resentful. I have increased energy, but all I want to do is to have a vacation with my partner (due to his work, we can't do so, plus we ain't vaccinated yet, since we are the young ones and one of the last in priority for vaccines). The whole corona stress is slowly bubbling up and I'm feeling it now. I am already daydreaming of drinking. I miss doing things outside of social media and interacting with people face-to-face. Above all, I miss meeting people that I don't know very well in pubs etc, since nowadays I cannot do so without fear due to the pandemic.
