I'm starting to think I'll never be able to get my hair cut. I booked an appointment a month in advance, it got canceled, wasn't given a reason (not due to Covid because she was taking clients all throughout). I booked another appointment 3 weeks out, she cancels again with a few hours notice. I lost income today because I gave myself a day off (own my own business, I work every day) for this haircut. Next appointment isn't for 3 weeks, and those days I can't because I'm booked up.

I am surrounded by diehard conservatives, first of all. My mom alternately believes COVID is a conspiracy to introduce socialism and/or that I am using it to avoid her crazy ass. (Option 2 isn't far off, tbh.) But she sent me this video of a self proclaimed doctor saying stuff about how zinc and hydroxychloroquine are a guaranteed treatment, masks are useless and socialist based, and we should treat COVID like any other illness. I had many issues, but the biggest one being that he said he has a 100% success rate. He then goes on to say that of his 75 patients, only 30 got tested for COVID and he believes over half of those were false positives... So that in itself is a huge contradiction. I badly want to express my thoughts on the video, but I also don't want to start a battle I know will just end in ugliness from her. So I won't. But I'll get it off my chest by posting it here. Lol.

I'm sure I'll get called Karen for even saying this, but it kind of annoys me that Karen is now something you call anyone that disagrees with you. Originally, Karen was a bigoted lady calling the cops on black people for existing in public spaces (Black Twitter coined it.) Then it devolved a bit into a woman who abuses customer service staff and doesn't give a fuck about the people around her because she's so selfish. Now the right wingers have got hold of it and Karen seems to be a feminist or into social justice, or basically anyone that disagrees with you. I know memes evolve, and I don't think "Karen" was sexist when it was first being used, but now it just seems to be a term for any woman you disagree with, and it is becoming a bit sexist (and a bit ageist) the way it is used even though it wasn't originally. Anyway, let the Karen replies to this comment commence. I accept my Karen-dom.

My mom is one of those people who always needs more. No matter how much you give, do, achieve, she always needs more. Unfortunately, my oldest ds is the same. I don't know where I went wrong, or if it's just an unavoidable personality trait. It's exhausting.

"You don't care about causing problems with us as long as you get what you want." Excuse me? 99.99% of my LIFE is spent making everything perfect for YOU. I don't know why i do the things I do. Honestly. Your little snide remarks and side eyed comments are getting to me, and I shouldn't let them. I am better than this.

In response to a confession. Thanks hanginin, and everyone! DH and I are already huge softies when it comes to animals, and since we were already emotional with so many people dying (my sister was the first of several this year!), we didn't stand a chance. Now comes the responsible part. Time to get them to the vet for a senior wellness exam, and find a healthier dry food than the easy supermarket stuff we have been going with, and figuring out a long term litter disposal situation. Anyone know of a diaper genie, but for cats? I would really like something that I can scoop clumps of litter into a biodegrable bag for a week (that contains the smell!), and then use the same bag to dump all the litter in at the end of the week (and then trash the bag and start over).

Also, I had trauma growing up with an alcoholic Dad. Loud drunkards can be a trigger for me. I need a relaxing, peaceful home for my mental health. I hope this isn't going to be an ongoing issue.

I'm trying hard to keep an open mind. I have new neighbors at the unit across the hall a few weeks. They're a couple and have been loudly playing music different hours, slamming doors, having guests over at 1:30am. One sounded like he was drunk just now. I had trauma growing so I get startled really easily like when the whole building was shaking from slamming that was scary. I'm a quiet introvert that lives alone. My other unit neighbor is the same. We both get up and leave at around 7am, come back at 6pm. Things were much quieter a few weeks ago. Sigh.

Has anyone filed unemployment due to Covid and from CA? I have to apply very soon since my FT hours are being reduced 50% this month. Would love any tips. Thanks!

In response to a confession. It has been nearly 6 months since my sister passed away. DH and I talked this weekend, and it is official. We are completely in love with the cats, and aren't going to give them up. The one that sits next to DH all day now sleeps with us. The one previously called 'the skittish one' now doesn't go a day without jumping in my lap and nuzzling and purring. I know my sister would be relieved that they aren't just in a good home, but somewhere they will get spoiled almost as much as she spoiled them. We all knew this is how this was going to end, right?
