Can't Promise

There is a time for everything. Two years ago, I would never thought of not signing in here daily, but Covid-19 and the chain reactions resulted from that, did the rest. These days, I am often either at work or sleep, or chasing after my young relatives' new cats to clean them up. (The big fat one has a weak tummy, while the pretty one likes to jump onto any areas she could, knocking things down.) I will try to sign in here more often, but can't promise, especially since my free time is never certain. (Whenever I thought I could take a rest, a new place would call me, their desperate situation often moved me enough to make me change my mind.) Hope you are all well (from Covid-19 and whatever else).

It has changed a lot since covid but not for me I have been here all along. You are right about those cats. Mine always knock stuff around.

The cats here are only half a year old, but they are big like adult cats. Guess yours have good health? I don't know why this muscular fat cat of ours could be that bad with his digestive system. (I am hoping that with time, he would be better. His sister could eat anything and nothing would happen.)

@YrNemo Mine are not even 6 months yet and one is huge while tannine is little in weight. He stinks to high hell in the litter box and eats just about anything you offer him.

@sharon6345 You are so lucky in having such a healthy male cat. This is my second male cat which has a bad digestive system. (He is desexed just like his sister, yet his excretes always smell dreadful. His sister is a proper and ideal domestic cat - she claws and scratches .)

I am glad to see you back. I planned to spend less time online and then the Covid obliged us to stay at home, MyLot is a nice pastime. We are well, no health problems.

It was funny really, there had been a time I planned to spend less time here, but that didn't happen (I got too addicted). The recent time, I had no intention to do so, but with bad internet connection (too many people stayed home due to Covid-19), or due to babysit/remote learning program of some of my young charges, I ended up having no time left to do anything. The internet is still not too good unfortunately. There was none just before.

@YrNemo We also have slower Internet during some hours of the day. I suppose it is because so many people are working from home. The next Monday the students go back to school, this should help.

@LadyDuck I have a new problem lately. I can't use the internet very well (wifi) if I am at the other end of the house (I have to keep an eye on the naughty cats). The internet provider's tech people told me that my laptop might be too old - &/or some of my neighbors have stronger router than ours.

I knew I hadn't seen you in a long time and wondered what had happened to you. My daughter and I are still doing fine. Covid is all around us but we have managed to stay away from it. We wear masks any time we go outside and never let others come into our house. I am happy to visit with you whenever you have time to come to myLot.

wow you do have a very good memory. Everytime I did the gardening here, I would think, 'hmm, I should come in just to say hello, or people there might think that Covid-19 had finished me...' But you know how things are in real life, you turn around and around doing this and that, and by the time you remember, it was time you must sleep, to ready for the next day. (I missed calling my older relatives that way, many times too.)

@YrNemo Oh, yes, I do understand. My daughter and I had to move a year and a half ago. We lived in the last house for over 22 years. The owner passed away so the family sold it. The new owner gave us a month to move out of his house. It was hard finding something at the time. We had been paying $385 USD a month for it. The house we found is half the size and we pay $450 USD for it. *sigh*

@DaddyEvil Do you have to pay 3% to 5% rise in rent every few years? I read it somewhere that that often happens and that is why peple tend to move house every few years. (My relatives are nice, so I never had that problem.)

@DianneN During 2020, there was a long period when I left things sending to us (from online shoppings) for a week or so, before opening any . I sprayed disinfectant on them too (just to be sure).

Our internet recently was either weak or not working (they had to fix the main cable somewhere on our street). Looking back, that was part of the reason why I just not logged in any more (couldn't any way ). I thought of you and your family often. (I have been watching lots of KDramas, JDramas and CDramas lately - things I downloaded whenever I could and just watched them when there was no internet at all. A good way to learn about other cultures. )

@YrNemo Argh those technical issues! I hope that it all got fixed - it's like we are at the mercy of these cable companies when it comes to that. We had a lot of on and off times last year with the internet . . . we wondered if there was way too much internet traffic - the system just imploded . Ah, so you got into the Asian dramas (I got into C-singing shows and other cultural music related videos). You're right - such a great way to learn about other cultures - especially when we can't do any traveling whatsoever.

@much2say Hope you are not upset with me, but I used to think Japanese movies and dramas were something so dark and difficult to understand. So I decided to investigate further. To my surprise, the detectives series etc they have, turned out to be quite funny and similar (good or even better) like the KDramas. Very pleased with this discovery.

@MarshaMusselman I work as a Supporting Staff in a certain field, so if a company needs me, they will call me. (I declined some, accepted some, that sort of thing. If I feel sorry for a place, I will kill myself a bit to help them out . It happened in the past when I ran like mad helping three places out for half a year. I had been conned once too by an old uni friend. I have learned since to be more careful these days.)

I was surprised too when I realized I just couldn't find the time (or had the internet) to get in here for that long a time. They seemed to have one issue after another with our local internet connection. (Your profile pic, is it a martial art gesture? Guess I watched too many martial art movies lately .)
