Snapchat, WhatsApp, FaceTime, WeChat. And definitely not cool but Duo or Hangouts.

I made a friend today. :yahoo:

a Duck friend that is with her own pool and everything! I already forgot her name I'll get a photo later this evening when I pick up my car from the shop next door. This one is a real city resident too.

So my mum's mastectomy is on Tuesday, and on Friday I'm going to Australia... And in less than a month I'll be in Japan. Weird.

Duck Story.
She is a pet duck (not wild) that the owner raised from a baby. So she's there 365 days a year and at the house next door to my car mechanics shop. I just noticed her today as I walked by this morning. I don't know how old or the particulars of ownership.

That looks like a very happy and well cared-for duck!

Went for a walk the other day and heard loud quacking a from a few doors down. I was excited to be able to add to our duckmania, but the scene I walked into wasn't something I wanted to take pictures of. :sweat: :tmi: Suffice it to say, this neighborhood might be getting more duck friends soon. :$

Moh - I'm glad you have a (series of) diagnoses! Hope the medications help. I had some mild GERD a couple of months ago. I started taking a round of Prilosec to try to let my esophagus heal, and 4 days in my hands and feet started to tingle! Wasn't until day 8 that I made the connection. Stopped taking it but apparently that was enough time for my esophagus and the reflux issues have resolved themselves. :thumbs-up:

Starra - Good luck to your mom! I'm sure she's in good hands.

resop02 - Depends on what you want to use it for, but I hear people use Discord chats for specific interests (mostly gaming), and really enjoy it. No install required!

I have a new worry now. I think the video part of my laptop is going. Around once or twice an hour the video will black out for a couple of seconds and then come back. I don't know if it means I need to replace my laptop or fix it.

My computer is dead and I'm sad. In shop for fix, and using iPhone.

Just when things couldn't get more interesting, the cottage behind the building next door just went up in flames. I think they will have to tear it down now since it has taken too much damage.

According to the news, a woman and her three kids were inside at the start of the blaze but all of them got out safely. The woman was treated for smoke inhalation but is expected to be okay.

Good that everyone got out without any major injuries. Fires are scary. :/

Starra: Your mom will be okay! Sending good vibes. :)

They finally started our mold remediation... It's been four months since filing the initial claim. Whatever, I'll be so ready to sleep in my own room again by this time next week.

That seems super weird that it's taking so long to even start. What was the hold up?

I don't think I've mentioned it here yet because I was trying to not get my hopes up too far before all the inspections & appraisals and stuff checked out, but... Kai and I are buying a house! :grin: He's been commuting via car anywhere from 40 mins to an hour 15 mins each way to get to work, but he likes the job a lot so we decided it was best to find a new place to live closer to his work. We considered renting for a minute but the housing market around here is so invasive and impossible, plus the places that get rented are in such crappy shape. The place we're getting was recently completely remodeled and it's in an area that's relatively rural (which we both like) while only being 20 mins from his work, with several routes to be able to take in case of traffic. We did the final walk-through today, everyone's pushing for closing day being this Friday. Preeeetty excited!! :heart:

My mum seems to be okay. The surgery went well, at the very least. She's still a bit out of it apparently (I didn't visit her today since I knew she'd be too tired and I also hate hospitals... I'll visit tomorrow though) but other than that she's fine. They won't know if the cancer's spread until they test the lymph nodes, and I think that that can take a few days.
