Lockdown insanity – sorry not sorry

It’s 5:15 pm on Good Friday and I have no plans for making dinner.

I have no plans for making dinner tomorrow either but my mom is feeding us Easter dinner so there’s that to look forward to.

There is nothing else to look forward to in this godforsaken province of endless lockdowns. This time, non-essential retail shall remain open at 15% capacity or something but nothing else. No restaurants. No coffee shops. For all of April.

Age is just a number

When I posted that picture of me in pig-tails, thanks to the teen girl and her hair-styling implements, a couple of people commented that I look young. Note: I am not young. No, really.

A day in my life – with lots of pictures

There were some issues with the neck brace delivery, and when it finally arrived, after I had gone to bed last night, it ended up not fitting right, nor was it comfortable. So much for accurate measurements.

I put it back in its box and will return it to Amazon. Thanks, but no thanks. I guess I’ll keep suffering. (woe is me blah blah blah)
