MyLot is quiet, where is everyone?

January 4, 2016 12:40pm CST
I realize it is Monday and many people have gone back to work.....but....there is usually a lot more action here during the week than I'm seeing today. It is way too cold out for me and I thought I've have a lot of company here at myLot, but I guess I was wrong. I even watched some TV with my husband I got so bored! I popped back in here and not much new to read. It might be time to find something else to do for a while until things pick up.

I doubt that everyone is back at work. I am, but I have a few minutes between doing things to take a peek and respond.

I think schools are back, but I'm not sure of that either. Thanks for responding, as least I know you're alive and kicking.

I am disabled and out of work, so I have very much time to spend here on Mylot

I guess you would have a lot of time to spend here, at least it gives you something to do.

But if you are looking for a job then that must take a good portion of your day.

@AbbyGreenhill I have to get busy during the day, on anything, be it a job or a hobby. Otherwise I become more crazy than what already am!

Yes, it is too quiet for my tastes. The excuse used for the Christmas holidays is not valid anymore, so where is everyone?

It is evening here and I have not been on all day (hardly) because as offices opened again today I had some phone calls to make and some loose ends to tie up that were hanging abpout since before Christmas. My 'students' also came back today too. Schools go back here in Italy on Thursday though as Wednesday will be our last holiday (Epiphany). I am wondering if the earthquake in India might have kept some people offline and maybe not through choice either.

@ivyparkgirl @AbbyGreenhill Yes it was 6.7 magnitude and you can read here:
An earthquake measuring 6.7 magnitude has hit north-east India, near the borders with Myanmar and Bangladesh.

Things have been very quiet. Perhaps people are realizing that the earnings potential is very low and they have decided to go elsewhere.

@ivyparkgirl the question is how long will it take to reach payout and with what kind of effort?

I'm sitting here waiting for my sister to arrive. Her and brother and brother in law will take my Mom off. Possibly the last time I will see Mom. They're up on the mountain Pass right now, waiting for the roads to clear so that they can get through.

Why are they 'taking her off"?

@AbbyGreenhill We live in too remote a place for Mom's comfort plus we do not choose to imbibe in TV. We do listen to National Public Radio and we did check out DVDs for Mom. Not good enough. And the matter of getting her to church at night when it is cold and roads are weird. Just not a good match. And due to worsening dementia, very moody Mom. Very hard on hubby and me's relationship.

@sallypup I have never heard anyone use the term 'imbibe' related to TV....I guess your mom does need a better place.
