What is going on with me and this blog? Are we even friends any more? I think it’s one of those common situations where time has just gotten away from us and each of us keeps waiting for the other one to reach one … So, I decided today that I’d be the one to do so. And here I am. Hello, old friend. How have you been?

Although I swear I saw flurries in the backyard this morning as Phoebe barked incessantly to be let back in, I’ve decided that it is, indeed, spring and that I must get cracking on my spring to-do list. What does that list have on it? I’m so glad you asked. And so is Aaron.

  • Hanging the sewing room chandelier
  • Painting the guest room
  • Installing some cool board and batten in that same room
  • Hanging another roman shade in that very same room (that guest room is going to be ready for all of our summer guests)*
  • Figuring out what the he%$ is going on with the attic**
  • Wallpapering something (even if it’s self-adhesive wallpaper and the subject is a vase)

And that’s just the indoors! And just the house! Well, what else is there, right? Jk. It’s almost festival season! Oy vey. I just need this weather to start to show some signs of life and we’ll be all set.


*At press time, I’m not aware of us hosting any guests this summer. I anticipate that changing once pics of the guest room go viral.

**More on this later.

    Sounds like a great list. I’d like to be a Summer guest?

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
