COVID-19 Layoff: Day Eighty & Eighty-One

Day Eighty:

EI report day which I almost forgot, thankfully I put a reminder on my phone and it popped up.

Today was a driving day, I was glad to get out of the house. Sister met me at my house and we picked up my Mum to drive to Etobicoke to pick up my families big San Remos order. Ususally that road is crazy so we went early to try to find parking/the curb side pickup. It was super easy, when we got there the two cars in front of us were leaving so I pulled up to spot one and waited. We were also 30 mins early so I thought they would make us wait but they came out with our order no problem.

We drove back to my Mum’s place, had a snack and hung out for a bit since Dave was napping with Drax. Came back in time to feed the dog and take him on his after dinner walk. Then it was hanging out for the rest of the night.

Day Eighty-One:

First off, holy crap to 81 days. I really hope I go back to work soon.

Today was pretty much a boring day, not much was done besides the regular stuff and watching all The Fast and the Furious movies since Netlfix put them all up! I remember watching the first one so I thought we’ll just rewatch them all. Dave didn’t want to watch them but once I put them on he was getting into it.

Obviously there’s a lot of them so I didn’t finish it today but I’m sure I will continue tomorrow.

I missed a couple days of workouts and ate like crap during those days so I needed to make up for it. I did an hour workout and died doing it but felt good after, I was also extremely tired. Drax keeps waking me up at 7am and I try to push it to 7:30 or 8 but it never happens.

That was pretty much my day!

Canadian Eh?

I don’t know if you’ve noticed but it’s fucking cold in Canada! Literally the other day it was so nice out, just a light snow covering, the next day it was cold and windy that was about it, by night time it was a full on blizzard with -30 weather. My boyfriend had to drive me home last night in the middle of the storm because I had to work this morning! It took the car 30 mins to warm up and he was scrapping the car for 10-15 mins to try and get the ice off; which was not working. The roads are completely covered in snow still, it’s still -30, windy as hell, and everyone is experiencing ice quakes or frost quakes. 

For those of you who didn’t know what a ice/frost quake was (which is okay cause neither did I), they are when it is so cold that the water on the ground or anywhere really expands and makes a very loud boom. It honestly sounds like gun shots going off, that’s how loud it is, apparently they were going off all over the GTA and people could hear it from miles away. These happened last night but it sounded like it was coming from the roof of my apartment, which is possible since it’s flat and there could be water or ice up there. 

It was so cold outside that everyone was saying that you should stay in doors if you can and only go outside if you really need too. Cab companies were not working today, schools were cancelled and even a NHL hockey game was cancelled because of the weather. Also they were saying if you were outside with exposed skin you could get frostbite in 5 mins – this is why my boyfriend picked me up from work since it’s a 15 min walk home. Everyone in Canada should have ski/snowboarding goggles so they can cover their eyes and still see when it is this cold, we all may look like idiots but it would be worth the warmth. 

Everyone stay warm if you have this crazy weather where you are!
