You know them. We all know them. It's been a part of life for so long that I don't remember life without such hypocrisy. It's always been there, but now it's front and center. Republicans are telling us that it's time to unite the country and heal. What the actual fuck? They've spent years stoking … Continue reading H Is for Hypocrite
I don't venture outside of my preferred genre that often. The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek, by Kim Michele Richardson, is not in that genre. It's sort of literature, historical fiction, with a little romance all rolled into one, maybe? It was a book club book, and I wasn't really looking forward to it because … Continue reading Personal Experience: The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek
Today is one of those days. I won't pretend to be a political commentator. I'm not. I'm just another person who watched the events of yesterday with horror. My heart hurts. And yet, I wasn't surprised. We saw this coming. If you didn't, you willfully ignored all the signs. In 2016, he said, "What do … Continue reading There Are Some Days When Your Heart Hurts
So this happened. I took screenshots for proof, lol. The younger daughter is attending school virtually. She has a school-issued computer, but she prefers the Microsoft Surface we got her. Right before Thanksgiving, it stopped charging. If you don't know, the Surface doesn't have a traditional laptop battery. There's a magnetic cord for charging, similar … Continue reading Microsoft, Are You Kidding Me?
Perhaps one day, I'll live in a state that tries. I hope. Our governor had a news briefing last week. South Carolina is trending up in COVID case numbers, but he will not be ordering any restrictions. He takes his cues from a certain angry toddler, so I guess we're all just going to pretend … Continue reading Are There Any Grownups in the Room?
Literally. Our older daughter tested positive for COVID one week ago. I made her get a rapid test after she told me a coworker was waiting on results. Seven months of being cautious, mostly staying home, and wearing masks. And it all flew out the window with the word "positive." I've said it before. I'm … Continue reading COVID in the House
So I didn't exactly hit the New Year's Eve or New Year's Day for reminiscing. Life's been a bit busy the past few weeks, between holidays and birthdays. I also took on some additional freelance work, and as it turns out, working more cuts into my free time. Who knew, lol? Anyhow, I came across … Continue reading What Do I Know to Be True That I Didn’t Know a Year Ago?
There's a lot happening. Everywhere. With everyone. Not just me. RBG. What a loss. What a wonderful woman. And how disrespectful of the current administration to practically shout with glee over the idea of a new SCOTUS judge even before Ruth Bader Ginsburg's funeral. It's hard not to feel impending doom when it comes to … Continue reading Discombobulated
So the past week or so has been... interesting. It's almost back to school time. Virtually. Did I mention that no one seems to have any idea what they're doing or how it's being done? Guess we'll figure that out Tuesday. We've been in the house for 6 months now and only just recently set … Continue reading The House Was NOT on Fire, and We Didn’t Blow Away. Among Other Things.
So the dumpster fire known as the Republican National Convention is done. Notable moments include: Masks? Distancing? What's that? The gift that keeps on giving, even though they tried speaking of COVID-19 in past tense. Puerto Ricans are not Americans. Who knew? Hatch Act, anyone? If you've followed this blog, this comes at no surprise. … Continue reading Conventions Are Over – On to November
