Change is hard

It was so great having the GAOOG visiting me, Aaron and Baby Bear for the past few days. We had lunch, coffees, dinner out with friends, dinner in will family, wine. We ran errands and went shopping. The GAOOG watched me lose a horrible tennis match, at least partially due to too little sleep and too many cocktails the night before. We talked and talked and talked. It was such a great time for me to have Baby Bear and my bestie together. I’m so grateful.

And still I’m going to miss you.

    I’m so grateful for time with you, Baby Bear, AO, puppy and the whole Lloyd-Lund team. There truly is no place like home and I miss you already. It’s never felt like enough time and now with Bear in the equation, it’s even harder. Sigh.

    Yeah, that was a rough one at the end for me. I just had such a nice time. I think part of it was, too, that I didn’t have the normal stress of work. So while I was anxious about returning to work, I felt like I could really enjoy time with you with only one (albeit huge) thing in the back of mind, instead of the usual 10. Bear has been a little cranky today and I can’t help thinking it’s because she’s angry with me for not keeping you around longer.

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
