Yesterday, through no fault of my own, I couldn't get into my game as early as I wished to. My email server is totally making my life miserable. I spent way too much time trying to cull the emails I had no interest in and the email server was making that quite the chore. Nearly an impossible feat. (I refuse to pay for an 'upgrade' for one, and I'm certain there is a Gremlin in the works, but that is beside my point.) Today, my browser is giving me fits, too. The response time is too slow and so I can't get into some sites. Face/palm. And Origin refuses to let me in. I even restarted my computer hoping that would help. But, when Origin did open it told me I was in offline mode, when I specifically switched back to online prior to shutting things down yesterday late afternoon. Not only that but my library of games is empty. Not terribly worried, this happened once before, quite some time ago and everything was recovered.
But, here I sit whining and today is not a Wine & Oil day, as this is the last week of Great Lent. (My Church is a week behind the Western Christian Churches, this year. Our Holy Week is next week.) But, I digress.
I know many people are on lock-down. I'm not alone but I'm starting to wear thin, it's also rather discomfiting to hear that my County Mayor just extended us until 7 May! Now, I can't even distract myself by playing my game.
Give me a BREAK. No church, no D.A.R. meetings, no Writer's Group and for the moment no Sims.
I would add to the "What Happened in your Game Today" thread, but imjur is one of the sites I can't get into! I'm up a certain kind of creek without a paddle.
Just needing a little tea & sympathy, here. I'm a Loner, by Trait, but even I have had enough solitude to last me for months! I would look to see if the Adam Sandler/Jimmie Fallon "Don't Touch Grandma" is on YouTube, but I'm betting I won't even be able to get on that
Somebody, please, talk me down off of this wall!
