Glad to hear mom's heart tests were fine. Muscle strains: Did a number on my rib cage this spring and it's still not 100% right. I am stretching and that helps. Maybe some Icy Hot might help your mom? Hope mom finds some relief quickly and that you are okay too. Wishing her quick relief. Job: Thanks. They warned me about termination back in July, but as mentioned, the entire department was laid off on 10/30 to the outsourcing company so it was the best outcome for me. Am grateful I was employed this long to help with bills, and too, so I can collect unemployment. If I ever put this job on a resume, I can reuse: Position eliminated due to reduction in force. Anyway, filed for college Financial Aid and am waiting on my college admissions to see if I have reapply from scratch or if they had some kind of waivers due to Covid etc. I have been away for six semesters though so we'll see. Tricky being mom's cheerleader, but very glad I am still home to be there when she needs me. @Emperor Ferus Thank you very much. Hope your studies are going smoothly. Hope everyone is okay.
