Second Half of the NEW YEAR.

Good Monday Morning,

Why is it that the weekends have to pass so quickly?

Sunday nights have always been for the most part “sleepless” for me.

I cannot seem to turn the thoughts off.

I toss and turn.

I think about what needs to be done at work.

The thoughts just keep rolling and rolling and tossing and going on and on.

Drives me a bit off the deep end.

Then come Monday morning ….. I just want to stay in bed.

Likely I am not alone in this respect.

 

Anyway we did have a nice weekend.

I got some things checked off the TO DO LIST.

Had coffee and a lovely visit and some laughs with two of my girl friends.

I chatted on the phone yesterday afternoon with my youngest brother.

The only thing that was frustrating this weekend was the loss of cable.

Connection not working.

I called the phone number for TELUS and an automated message stated that the wait would be just over one hour.

I could wait on the line or receive a call back, I decided to go for the call back.

Almost two hours later, no call back.

So I called with my cell phone.

At three o’clock, I decided to go on the computer and try their online help desk.

After less than five minutes I was chatting with someone.

She was going to “reboot” the connection.

After a few minutes she called me on my cell.

After one hour …. nothing ….. I unplugged and plugged every cord twice or three times.

Waited till the cows came home and nothing.

So after 4:00 p.m. she asked me if I wanted someone to come out.

YES, please I said.

So I have a tech person coming out this afternoon.

What a waste of the afternoon except for the chat with my brother.

Anyway, I am running late of course.

I definitely need coffee.

The help line is located in the Philippines.

I asked.

She said that they only have a few staff in Canada.

Well I thought at least we are employing people in other countries.

But at the same time we have lots of people that need jobs here.

Telus is likely not paying them much compared to what they would have to pay them in Canada.

Oh, the greed of large corporations.

Another story for another day.

We did manage to squeeze a walk in before supper.

I also made this yummy quinoa dish.

Just threw it together.

So happy.

 

I hope that you have an amazing Monday.

Be safe.

Keep well.

Have patience.

I managed to have some yesterday from 12:30 – 4:15 p.m.

 

With kindness and respect.

I/We shall remain,

As Always, Carol & Alvin
