I’m so angry at myself that because I wear my heart on my sleeve, someone in my life can still hurt me so deeply and so callously that I’ve made myself ill and missed a night of sleep. Pissed that I’ve, yet again, allowed a closet narcissist to wound me and effect my self esteem.
Chocolate eclairs help heal me, I'd make you some to help soothe you, if I could. Hope you feel better soon.

Is there a "what is making you sad" equivalent of this thread?
Yes there is, if you need it...


eBay is pissing me off today. I really miss how it used to be, and I regret reopening an account.

Myself.

A couple of days ago, it was a nice day, I decided to walk 40 minutes to a meeting rather than drive. I wore a nice pair of shoes, not a pair of walking shoes. Subsequently, my feet are blistered so bad I've been barely able to move the last two days.

My fault, which makes it worse.

Impossible Burgers smell when you cook them.
Someone brought a couple pounds and expected me to make them for "everyone, because you all need to eat meat"

I "cooked" it on the third grille, meaning it was left in the fridge. They were upset, I was a bad host.
I might have worked as a short order cook, but my house is not a diner. I make allowances for those who don't eat meat: I had some big ass portobellos and
"squash coins"

The great white north, eh?
Covid, specifically that everyone in the house has it at an unfortunate time. We'll be skipping Canadian Thanksgiving. My son is back at University and he missed two labs this week and is scrambling to arrange ways to make it up. I'm behind on a big project that has to be approved by the end of the month. My wife has only fairly recently started a new job that she has to do in person. We couldn't have all caught this in June or something like that?
(OK, on the plus side it looks like wife and I are only in for the "somewhat miserable flu" version while son had three days of wracking coughs but he's doing much better today. So it could be ever so much worse -- we could have caught Delta when it was going around or something like that -- but I just wish I had the time to call in sick and do nothing instead of trying to coherently edit documents.)

We just lost our clothesline. :(

We had a long clothesline across our back yard, anchored high up on an old utility pole. High so that laundry can safely hang above the car parked back there (old neighborhood not built for parking in the front). Definitely an old pole because the electricity and phone lines have come in from the street for ages but I guess at some point they ran along between the back yards.

Apparently someone a couple of houses away was worried about the pole by their yard so called the electrical company to come get rid of it, and while they were here they decided to get rid of all of them, with no warning.

We don't use the line much in the winter (we use a rack inside instead -- we don't actually have a fully functional dryer, preferring to hang dry), but this really is frustrating. We are going to have find something that can stick up five meters or so and get it properly installed, come Spring (flag pole?). And can't take advantage of a dry sunny winter day to hang some things outside.

And the post was aged, but was in good shape!
