It’s hard to believe December is over, let alone the entire year. Despite the endless Republican tactics to subvert the election and overthrow the government–and yes, I actually wrote those words as surreal as it seems–the month flew by.
Can’t say I have a ton to show for it, really, as consuming as this has all been. But that’s the thing about time, it goes whether you notice it or not, whether you use it or not. Forever away becomes last week before you even know it.
Usually that principle applies to fun things, to vacations, to anticipated events, but this year those didn’t happen. This year the holidays and trips and plays and special exhibits just weren’t.
And while we watch more Republicans working feverishly to prolong our agony, remember: this too shall pass. The time goes.
It’s very gray out today, it’s supposed to snow but I don’t see any sign of it yet. I’m probably the only person to feel this way (so much sarcasm), but I’m very tired of the pandemic, especially given this could have been under control but for the deliberate actions of a political party actively encouraging spread.
So when only some people take precautions, it goes on and on and on. Oh yay.
I guess I’m not in a great mood today. Glad the weather and I are in agreement.
At least we’re on the edge of change, even that which is being changed doesn’t want to go. Though that’s often the way, but nonetheless, it’s going. And that’s a relief.
And that’s it for me today, light week, light on the thoughts. Have a great Tuesday.
It’s brightly sunny and my eye has been twitching for days. It happens sometimes, and it’s annoying, but it’s not like I’m out and about where people will see it. It does seem like an appropriate way to end 2020 though.
I’ve got to admit that in envisioning the far-off future, I definitely thought the year 2020 would be better than this. Infinitely better than this, universes better than this. It was a terrible year.
Perhaps what makes it worse it much of it could have been avoided if it were not for trump. It was the culmination of his maliciousness, and boy, talk about a snowball. In Hell.
Huh. I’m on to something there.
Anyway, I’ll keep it brief because, well why not. I hope you have a great Monday, and even more so, I hope it’s a vacationy Monday.
It’s Christmas, so a Merry Christmas to all who celebrate and a Happy New Year to everyone. Though I’ll have time to wish you that next week. I wrote originally “next year,” and I hope that’s also true.
It’s cloudlessly sunny today, bright, intense and meaningless sunshine as it’s about 10 degrees. That’s Fahrenheit, not Celsius.
So it’s a yikes.
It’s quiet today, and I don’t know if that means people are celebrating at home or out and about, though the roads don’t seem busy. I hope they’re at home, because we’ve just got to get these numbers down. If you ever wondered what an unchecked pandemic would look like, here it is.
In fact it’s worse than that, because trump and the GOP have encouraged high-risk behaviors while underplaying how dangerous the virus is. But at least this part is nearly over.
So that’s it for me today, I hope you have a lovely Christmas if that’s what you’re doing, and a lovely, relaxing day if it isn’t, and have a great weekend.
It’s very sunny today, maybe even aggressively so, and I can tell it’s a day when my focus will be scattered. I’m already trying to do three things at one time.
Maybe if I had eight arms like an octopus I could channel it into something useful. Take note, genetic engineers.
Again there were technical problems with my workout, but I figured out a workaround, which seems unfair before coffee or even, you know, a workout, to get the brain going. I’m not sure what is happening with the site, but I may shake up my routine this week if it continues.
Otherwise I’m just plodding onward, one foot in front of the other toward January, waiting for the malevolent force that is trump to ooze back into the woodwork.
And that’s it for me today in this bright, bright sun. Have a great Tuesday.
Well, it’s Monday. You probably knew that, and if you didn’t, I’m sorry to break the bad news. It’s a holiday week, though, so it’s not the Mondayist of Mondays except mine started out that way.
My workout this morning wouldn’t start, there was something wrong with it, so I had to find a different one to do, which doesn’t sound like a lot, but I was so fuzzy this morning. Often I’m up a half-hour before my alarm, but this morning, I slept until it woke me.
So I wasn’t my sharpest.
But I did it and it got done so at least there is that. I’m awaiting my groceries, I’m now firmly on team delivery, it’s so easy. Then I parlay the groceries into ready meals and I’m set for a few days.
Talk about your win win.
Aside from that, I can’t tell whether it’s sunny or gloomy today, it’s an odd combination, which makes sense in the scheme of things as we sidle down to the last bits of the year. And what a year it’s been.
Anyway, that’s it for today, so have a great Monday.
I am just not fully present today. It started with a coffee mishap, where I forgot entirely to put the cup under the coffee maker, and honestly, even the re-brewed, fully-cupped coffee hasn’t improved things. Oh well.
But it’s sunny today, or sort of hazy, or maybe the weather is also having a draggy day. Perhaps, for once, we understand one another.
Maybe I should make more coffee. I wonder if the weather would like a cup.
The closer we get to January, the more desperate and pathetic trump becomes, perhaps as he realizes how much everything will change for him. What I don’t understand are the people clinging tightly to his nearly-submerged ship.
It makes no sense.
But sense or no sense, come January, there will be a reckoning. Maybe that will perk me up.
I’m going to try to crank myself up to at least half power. Have a fantastic Friday and a relaxing weekend.
