November blues

It’s only November 13, but I’ve already got the winter blues. Or something that looks a whole lot like them. I suppose I get like this every year: when the darkness comes so early, and the sun sometimes doesn’t seem to come at all, it’s easy for me to get a little down. I’m not even down, really, just not up. Or, rather, not so motivated. Not motivated to write, to organize, to sew, to train Phoebe, to clean, to shower (my skin gets so dry this time of year!), to finish projects. All I really want to do is surf the Internet looking for house solutions we can’t afford, watch Damages and cuddle with Bear. Maybe I just need to let myself mourn the election results a little longer. Or maybe I need a swift kick in the keester. Until then, let’s look at One Kings Lane

    Yes. I too, have a bit of the blahs. I just try and force myself to do stuck. Like I cleaned a clost yesterday. And going to the gym is ridiculously painful but when I a done I do feel better. For what that is worth……

    Thanks. We just got a Groupon for two for a two-month membership at Snap Fitness down the street. Maybe we’ll activate it this weekend. As much as I’m going to miss her, Molly going to Grandma C.J.’s for the weekend will probably help us kick out some more projects that I’d like to get done before Thanksgiving. The continued lack of storage in our house is driving me batty!

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
