    I’ll take rainy and gross right about now. I’m tired of heat waves. At least the fog is back tonight so we cooled off super fast this afternoon.

    My internet is down. After various experiments, I have concluded that the issue is with the actual cable line, either my coax or the line outside the home, and not an internal network/modem problem. This sucks donkey nuts because it means I need to let a tech in here, and my house is FILTHY. So I have to spend tomorrow night cleaning instead of sleeping. I am still not sure I can get enough done in that time to not be totally fucking humiliated, that is how bad it is right now.

    Fingers crossed it's the outside line and they can fix it without coming in. Lol fml *sob*

    I’m sure they’ve seen worse! But I totally understand because I feel the same way whenever someone has to come in our apartment. I was mortified when plumbers had to come fix the toilet (it kept running) and the bathroom hadn’t been cleaned for awhile.

    Luckily the issue was resolved from outside and the tech never even got to see how clean I made my floor for him. :bored:

    We are all sick and life sucks. C1 brought us home a cold. He’s pretty much better but now D and I feel like garbage and the baby has a snotty nose and won’t eat. Feeding him is enough of a struggle on a good day.
    I took a sick day at least, but C1 is here bouncing all over the house instead of doing his school work.

    I wish I had a sick day, not because I'm sick but I guess more days napping instead of working would be good. But then I would also wish to not have kids bouncing around while I wanted to be lazy, so I am sorry for you for that.

    Kids really put a damper on napping, it’s not a plus for having them.

    Didn't sleep last night, and I'm miserable at work. At least it's busy and just keeps me focused.

    Lolol same whine as always. This time I slammed way too much caffeine at once. It's surreal to be wired and yawning all at once.

    Not miserable at work at all, but I still want to go back to bed. Warm and cozy under my blankets and zzz....

    I live about 6 miles from the Oakland Coliseum where the A’s play. I’ve never heard noise from games (other than fireworks) until last year when baseball started up during the pandemic. We can hear the bass from the music they’re playing and it’s soooooo annoying. The only thing I can figure is the sound is reverberating off the empty seats. They’re letting some fans in now but it’s still pretty empty. I hope to Jeff Goldblum more people are allowed in soon because the bass is getting on my last nerve. The Coliseum is fully aware this is happening because a shit ton of people have complained to them about it. They still don’t turn the music down. It’s making me not give a shit if they leave Oakland.

    Nothing like waking up feeling like hot garbage after a second night of 2hrs sleep for no good reason :sad::angry:

    Our upstairs neighbors' AC is next to ours right by our wall. OMJG I don't know why, but theirs is SO FUCKING LOUD, and they keep it on almost constantly. I don't begrudge them their cold air, but the pulsing loudness just covers up all other sounds. Any time it stops, my blood pressure drops noticeably.

    That sucks Lh. That’s the kind of sound that drives me crazy because you can hear it no matter what you do.

    I was supposed to see my BFF this weekend after not seeing him since December 2019 and that was just briefly for dinner and he just found out a vaccinated friend he hung out with last weekend just tested positive for COVID. He’s getting tested tomorrow but we’re going to cancel our visit out of an abundance of caution and I’M SO SAD. :no::sad::cry:

    That sucks. Much respect to you for cancelling, I know that’s tough

    It sucks but his test today was negative so that’s good! He’s going to keep an eye for symptoms but it’s been 5 days and that usually when people start testing positive so he probably didn’t get it.

    There have been storms in the area, and we went on an outing today about 1hr away. One or both of these triggered a bad bout of allergies. Zyrtec didn't touch it, so I just took a Claritin. On top of my sleeping pill. So sneezy :bird:

    I love it when my supervisor says “we expect you to be there all day” and also “don’t violate duty hours” when there is no possible way to do that in our current understanding of space and time.

    Well, I suppose the bright side here is that you’re being given requests you can comply with.

    Why is being home from vacation so much work?
