Trigger = pulled

So, it’s been an annoyingly emotional week for me. I won’t get into why. Ok, fine. Twist my arm. I will. It’s just because I’ve had two doctors’s appointments, a board meeting tomorrow, I’m feeling a little overwhelmed at work, Bear started her first week of official preschool and I had to cancel a much-needed haircut because of the aforementioned board meeting. Anyway, I know: suck it up, Kate. So, because there is no therapy like retail therapy, I pulled the trigger on a sideboard. Just kidding. I mean, I did buy a sideboard (Mom, we can totally still go to Milwaukee! In fact, I’d love to!), but there are definitely better therapies than retail. I realized, though, that it’s been driving me so crazy that I spend way too much time every day going back and forth between the options and staring at the one in our dining room when I come home. So, there were a couple of deals that came together and I hit a few buttons and, finally, the big one: “submit order.” Anyone want to guess which one made the cut?

    So sorry about the stressful week. Hope things improve. I am guessing the IKEA sideboard?

    Good guess, but no!

    My first choice?

    Unfortunately no. That’s my favorite one, too, but our dining room table has a very similar wood top so I think it’d be too much of that kind of wood. Ultimately, I’d like to do a white tulip table, so it’d work beautifully then but who knows if that’ll ever happen. So, I pulled the trigger on the white west elm one. I’ve been so in love with white furniture lately. It was 20% off and I had $75 off, too. Plus, I opted for the 12-month 0% financing so that I can pay it off slowly. Basically, I made money, right?!

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
