Plans

I was recently informed that about 94% of blogs go idle after six months.  While I’ve made it past that mark, I’ve stalled out a bit as of late.  I suppose it’s mostly because it’s summer and there’s other stuff to do, it’s been uber-busy at work, and I’ve been uber-busy with the union.  Though I think the real reason is that my mind has been scattered and coming up with any coherent thoughts has been rough.

I’m hopeful, though, that this will change shortly.  A week from today I will be embarking on a two-week vacation.  Hooray!  The itinerary?  Well, first let me say that it is a road trip.  In a new black civic.  With an i-pass.  Hooray!  Ok, we leave Monday for Dayton, OH to visit Papa.  Then, Tuesday morning we leave bright & early (maybe) to hit the road for NYC.  We’ll be visiting Kristin in Brooklyn (at last!) and the City until Friday afternoon.  Friday afternoon we head north for Amenia, NY to partake in Andrea’s wedding festivities.  That takes us until Sunday morning when we head out through Canada to reach Presque Isle, WI to relax on the cheerful waters of Presque Isle Lake with lots of family.  I think it’ll be a good trip and I’m hoping for lots of fun photographs.

Anyone else have fun, close-to-end-of-summer (can you believe it?) plans?

    One- I cannot believe it is close to the end of summer. Two- I am so excited for you and your trip! It will be so nice to get away! Yay NYC! Yay for Andrea’s wedding! Yay Presque Isle! Three- How is it that I have done no traveling, other than coming home- which though fabulous was not nearly enough, and have none coming? Sad face.

    Whoo hoooooo!!!!!!! Brooklyn and I are waiting for you guys.

    Does the i-pass work where EZ pass works? I hope those things are universal now because there’s a bridge into Brooklyn that costs like $12 now! Crazy.

    But duh, that was dumb. I think it’s only cheaper if you live in an zip in the area. Oh well.

    Anyway. There is so much to do, I just don’t know how we’re going to pack it all in. I can’t wait.

    Ooh, have fun! Sounds like a whirlwind, but all good!

    The IPass should work and I don’t know about not being cheaper — it still might be. It is in Chicago (half off) and I certainly don’t live in that zip code. But $12 is a steal if I get to see my little Fee.

    And Gretchen, you don’t know how many times I’ve gone over in my head how to fit Richmond in. Oh, Richmond. I miss you. And Gretchen, too! There’s just not enough time this trip…But I’m think Road Trip Part II needs to happen next sumsum.

    Also, I’m totally losing my mind. No jokes, please. I can’t remember anything anymore. Could be the copious amounts of wine I inject at night, but I think it’s more related to the union + work. Ms. Keyes is in New York and I completely spaced it. I’m too used to having her in Turkmenistan or Germany or the Czech Rep that I completely spaced that she’s now stateside. So, Ms. Feehan, I need to put another thing on our list: fireside chats with Keyes. Or maybe drinks or lunch. Or both.

Sleep in safety. Sleep without stress. Sleep without worry. Things children all over the world should be able to do. But those kids who have set foot on this soil after bearing untold abuses and have asked for asylum from us—literally begged us for help, throwing themselves on our mercy—have been tossed aside and, I imagine, can’t sleep. . . . They’ve been treated not only like they’ve done something wrong (they haven’t), but treated in a way we don’t—or shouldn’t—treat any child in this country. We don’t put children in cages. We don’t make children sleep on floors. We don’t separate them from their families. In fact, when these things happen to children, we usually file criminal charges against the perpetrators. This must stop. . . . #stopthemadness #reunitefamilies #asylumseekers #choosekindness #hurryupmueller
My love. She loves to sleep on the floor. I swear: she has a bed. We have several. Couches too! But I get to see her like this every night and we both get to feel so safe . . . On the other hand, there are those who can’t feel safe at night bc of our country’s ridiculous policy. The #GOP has decided that the world’s current horrors weren’t enough that they needed to up the ante and add their own voice to the unending madness. And they did . . . Separating asylum-seeking mothers and fathers from their children. That’s the #GOPlegacy. Does it get more horrific?! People fleeing horrendous abuses, throwing themselves on our mercy and, instead of kindness, we shower them with incivility, treating them as criminals, stealing their children and tossing them in detention. Where is your soul, #GOP?! . . . #resist #impeachmentyesterday #impeachmentnow #bluewave #votethemout #noexcuse
