    What are you doing today?

    I still have lots of laundry! Getting an extra day out of a shirt or whatever doesn't make much of a difference.

    What are you doing today?

    Something I noticed long ago: In adults-only buildings, people do their laundry during the week so they can have weekends free. In buildings with children, people do laundry on weekends, because they're busy with other things during the week. Anyway, I'll do laundry today too, because laundry...

    A dilemma this Christmas, (we all like musing on these don't we)

    Since you aren't entirely comfortable with dealing with her directly, by all means use the third party (if they are willing).

    Wonderful News for Canadians

    Anyone old enough to write to Santa is too old for Santa.

    Are you a Bum/beggar magnet?

    I live in a small working-class town. No beggars here. Everyone knows each other, and their story, and their family.... I did see some drug addicts gathered outside the supermarket, which has an in-store pharmacy. Apparently there are people who will sell their prescriptions to the addicts. How...

    @Blessed Thank you for the explanation about phobia and panic attacks. I don't have agoraphobia. Just a bad attitude toward going out. I did have panic attacks once (while driving), and it's affected me ever since.

    What are you doing today?

    I woke up late this morning, so no time for morning exercises. I might skip lunch too. The weather has warmed up (a bit). I hope my car starts. It hasn't let me down yet, but you never know. I have a busy afternoon planned: - Drop donations off at thrift store, and look around for clothes...

    Be alert

    This is my rudimentary understanding of the iTunes card scam: Payment through an iTunes card (or any gift card) is harder to trace than a bank transfer or PayPal, etc. The scammer can then resell the virtual card. The reason a scammer asks the victim to use a specific kind of card is so they...

    What have you bought recently?

    Thank you, @Blessed . Maybe I'll do it soon. It's not bad yet.

    @Della I could relate to so much of what you said. In my case, I've never thought of it as agoraphobia though. It's just that everything seems so much harder, with so little reward. Partly because I'm getting older, and partly because things are changing -- as with the self-checkout. Also being...

    What have you bought recently?

    @Jules There's no need to stand on the bed. Anyway, I had to learn how to do it because it was my job. Now I have a duvet with no cover; the duvet is washable. I understand about getting others to do certain tasks. Right now I'm thinking of hiring someone to clean my oven.

    Are you bothered by "nature"?

    I don't mind, as long as they stay out of my living quarters.

    Books! How do you read and what do you read?

    Thank you, @charry and @StarSong ! You've clarified something I've long wondered about.

    What are you doing today?

    I have a separate number for voice mail only. The clinic has that number. Friends have my text number or email. I haven't answered my phone in 10 years. I've never regretted it. Why? When I had a business, it was more convenient to use voice mail. As for personal calls, I got tired of people...
