Does that make my dog crazy

I’m beginning to realize my dog is incorrectly named. She very literally keeps stopping to smell the flowers. I keep saying you’re not Ferdinand, you’re a dog not a bull!! Nonetheless, stop and smell she must.

I should be asking does that make my dog crazy, however I believe it makes her quirky. Potato, potatoe.

This Friday is Good Friday and for the first time in a vary long time Tess and I will not spend that day together. I miss that girl more than words can properly express. She and I are like peas in a pod, I just got the new Star Wars movie on Blu-ray and was looking forward to watching it again with her. I know she and I saw it in the theater, but we still like watching movies again. And again. And again. Is that wrong? I don’t want to be right if it is.

I talk to people all over the country all day long. Every one of them say the same thing. This is the strangest thing they’ve ever been through. Some people are stressed, some have a sense of humor about the situation, some are hurting.

I’m still loving working from home, saving money on gas and wear and tear on my car is lovely. Wearing pajamas and workout clothes is also in the plus column.

That’s all I have for now. Please know that if you are living in a house with people around you I really hope you don’t take that for granted.

My Job

I’ve been doing a lot more of these on my phone. I typically don’t like to do that, a lot of times I write in long hand what I want to say then type it on my Mac.

However I find sitting at a computer for 8 hours in my home makes me not want to sit in front of one during my non working hours. So here I am on my phone.

I’m doing better today, a good friend called me Friday night and told me thank you for what I had written. It was everything she had been feeling. I have her a voice.

I always say that God uses us in the most unexpected ways, if He can use my silly little page to make one person feel less alone I’m grateful.

I’ve always thought the job I do is important, we keep people connected, I feel it even more so now. The other day a woman called in and I needed to send a technician out to fix her line. She told me she was a teacher and was doing classes on Zoom. Was there any way I could get someone out sooner. No. There wasn’t. We just don’t have the manpower. I then asked if she had hotspot capability on her phone. She said yes but she didn’t know how to use it.

I happily said I can totally help you with that, especially after she said she had an iPhone. I walked her through setting it up and connecting her laptop to it. I advised her not to connect anything else to it and she should be fine. I also told her it might lag as it doesn’t have the same speed as her regular internet but it would get her through the next couple of days.

She started to cry and told me thank you, I had lessened her stress for the day.

It’s what we all do, everyday, my coworkers and I try and lessen the stress of our customers just a little.

I know there are many workers out there that are still doing their jobs and keeping people connected. I salute all of you, you totally rock. We’re not doctors or nurses or grocery store workers, we work behinds the scenes making sure all of those people can keep connected to loved ones and others in their field.

To all of the linemen and linewomen, to the technicians actually going into peoples homes, I salute you. You all are rock stars!

That’s all I have for right now. I’m so happy I live close to Alex and Elicia, they have saved my sanity.

Peace out peeps, good Palm Sunday to you all, it was a different one. I pray peace and well being for you all.

So Much

I can’t do this, I can’t take it anymore, the pain, the stress, the aggravation. It has to come out somewhere and here it is.

Lose, loose, losing Loosen, loser, loss. I’m going to use each in a sentence just to give an example of how each word should be used.

I am losing weight, my pants are loose, I need to loosen my belt as I am not the biggest loser. If I lose any more weight I will be at a loss. Loosing means to free from bonds, losing means you have lost something.

I feel so much better, I can’t even begin to tell you how long I’ve been holding this in! How long has Facebook been around?

The bad part of being alone for this long is loss of human contact. I’m going to need a hug soon. I have gotten a glimpse of my dotage and it isn’t pretty. People who have significant others tend to put me down for this. Because they very literally have no clue. I’m going to die alone. If I died right now no one would notice for weeks. My work would just write me up for no call no show. Then send me a termination letter.

So there you have it, I have a taste of what my old age will be like and it’s very lonely. I hope everyone is doing well in their isolation.
