    Being clear and concise removes any possibility of the message not being interpreted as intended.

    Have I made myself clear enough?
    Psych has been so much better at not doing that lately though. So I'll mention it about counsellor, and I can even mention how I seem to get into the same sort of pattern with my bf and my mum where suddenly they'll be recounting the plot to some tv show I never had any interest in watching and I'll be like "mmhmm. aha. oh ok"... But I do want to emphasise to psych that we've seemed to have got out of the monologuing pattern at the moment and how much better it's going now that we've escaped.

    I agree. We get more than one flavor but it needs to be fruit and it definitely needs gluten (and probably more cowbell too).

    1. I didn't get chased by the crow today (unsure if it's random or because I swapped back to my old helmet). Great how this is a positive either way, as long as the crow doesn't gain attack experience.
    2. Good bike ride today.
    3. My report is going to be super late but I have a colleague helping me.
    Bonus: I don't feel bad about being unfairly accused of leaving "debris and litter... lying around. " No, we didn't throw it out in case we still need it, and we couldn't take it with us due to procedural issues (believe me, I'd have preferred to have it sitting under my desk than leaving it there) but we tidied it up and helped wrap the pieces up together so that it wasn't a mess. I accept that due to us not being able to sort out where to put it that they had trouble storing it somewhere but that description is pure hyperbole.

    1 - I haven't caught COVID-19 (YET) But it's getting almost impossible to avoid.

    2 - I haven't killed or beaten anyone up (YET) for NOT telling me there is a critical outbreak in the building next door about 100 feet from here (it's all the same housing corp. and 90% are related to one another and rules especially laws don't apply to people around here. There made for others) same common parking lot and the garage bay I'm renting from a resident there! is part of a section of open bays that belongs to the residents of the building in question. 1 died of Covid-19 yesterday. And I think it's not the first death there of it since I was told a couple days ago that someone there had died but I was half asleep when told and never thought of asking.

    AND these are 2 small buildings, 20 1 bedroom rental suites here and about the same thing, if not less, 2 bedroom life lease suites at the critical outbreak one.

    Posted here trying to find something positive out of being trapped in a den of... (I'll let you fill in the end of that sentence how ever you want cause if I typed it out it would get censored anyway)

    3 - Hopefully, as promised, and in writing. By Dec 1st (or if a miracle happens before) my new one should be ready. But I just realized that the one overseeing the construction of it is a resident of that building.

    Phone calls are definitely on the agenda today. And I need to go for a ride. car hasn't started or moved in 10 days. Need to get wheels retorqued before 100 km and I only drove 22 km in 19 days. That's coming back from getting tires installed and 1 trip to Walmart.

    Are you moving to a different building? Or is this a new garage? Or something something Darkside?

    Re: 3 Positive Things Part 7

    Been on the phone all morning. playing musical call.
    Yes moving, my car not me.
    Garage is ready. Looks like I might be alone in garage. The Caretaker not taking it anymore. They first told him be less then they told him same price as me and so he took out his work stuff.

    That's exactly why I wanted it in writing. People say one thing someone decides and had a good chat about it with the guy who has been here on the board from the beginning in 82. Not like others that come and go because Mom or Dad or what not are here and get involved. He did it because he likes to help. I told him he was wise and he said he wasn't and I said if you would have agreed then it would have meant you aren't. A fool thinks he's wise... Told him that nobody knows this place and that he can remind them of why they started the project in 82.

    I also told him he better not be the one coming here to collect the rent. Him and his wife both caught and survived Covid-19. He's over 85.

    Problem is there's still some stuff in it and nobody knows who has the keys. It's supposed to be unlocked and I don't need it technically but want that side door locked at all times if I'm transferring my things into it. That's why I need to know what's what regarding the keys. I can use the clicker to get in and out through the garage door.

    Waiting for an answer. It's brand new, heated and part of my lease officially as of Dec 1st. All the other garages like the bay I have now belong to the other building and if they can't drive (many are too old) they rent it out to someone in this building. So First one I had from Mid July, 2018 till they went to long term car in Jan. and I rented it for an extra month from the board till the transfer was done.

    This current one I have I've been renting since Sept 2019. He rented one of the 5 attached garages from someone else that can't drive. Like the first one I had and I rented his. Those garages are not part of our leases here. So there is no assurance, they die or move and you have to find a place to put your things. things get too complicated and I too much instability. I want a workbench and would like an air compressor but even if I had one of the other ones it's too cold when not heated for certain things. So my small floor jack is probably toast (seals) and my bigger one has been in my bedroom closet For almost 3 years.

    Now the brand new garage is for this building. The work shop section attached will be available for all from both buildings. From what I get it there's a new (old) guy that moved in and gave a respectable donation to be able to have a little workshop time and that's how this all started. Right now there's just me that will be renting the garage. And it's mine payed with my rent every month.

    Going for a drive after lunch. Called Toyota in Steinbach and he said just call when you get here and I'll send a guy out to re-torque the wheels. Maintenance manger is going to check with the guy that's in charge of the garage/shop project to see who has the keys. I was given permission to move in when I want. But I want to make sure it's locked all the time before I put my stuff in it. 18" tires are very expensive!

    I'll take some pics when I go out this afternoon.
    IF all goes well I'll vacate as soon as possible to avoid any potential contact with others in a common garage. Better paranoid then on a ventilator.

    Ok. Got the key answer. garage will be ready with keys tomorrow. And the maintenance manager is a great guy. When he says something it's usually taken care of. And he does AWESOME work.

    Now I can shower and get going. Hope the car starts. the Focus could go a long time without any issues. This one I don't know yet. Find out soon enough
