Bit cold today. -10 degrees but feels like -18 Celsius.
Mom’s got physiotherapy this morning at 11 am in our old hometown of Pointe-Claire, QC
Located in Montreal’s West Island, the City of Pointe-Claire, renowned for the quality and variety of its municipal services, is a wonderful place to live.
It’s everything tech related really. It will be nice and quiet for a little bit, which will be because it can get tiresome with the constant computer, tablet and smartphone related queries.
It can get really frustrating at times for me, depending upon who it is coming to me with their tech problems. They don’t seem to understand that I have absolutely no training as an IT technician.
When they say they wouldn’t know what they would do without me, it occasionally depresses me, because I personally don’t have anyone, with the exception of Drew, to go to for computer related issues. When I do need help, I’m much more likely to Google my questions or go to an online forum and ask for help there.
Bottom line is everything I’ve learned is because I took the time to figure things out, and usually it’s because I’m the one who screwed things up in the first place, LOL.
Mom’s doing it because I’m convenient, but then gets occasionally frustrated when I can’t explain it to her in a way she understands.
There are times, depending on my mood (always fluctuating) that I actually get overwhelmed and anxious every time she calls out to me with a some new query.
Oh well . What can I do? She’s my Mom and I love her. Besides, she’s entitled to anything she wants considering the 9+ months she carried me while she was pregnant, and that doesn’t even include the 47 years of my life and it’s problems
I’ll probably grab the vacuum cleaner after she heads out and do the main floor of the house. Also have to bring the two cauldrons of Turkey Scotch broth in from outside, as well as the hard wood for the smoker and let them defrost. I think, despite the disappointing setback earlier this week with the freeze burned turkey (from 2013), she’s now mentally prepared to get a new bird from the grocer at some point today and get it smoked over the course of the weekend. I would really like to start baking some of the cookies soon too.
