Holy 🍌🍌🍌

Hi folks! Anyone out there?! I’m still here. You? I miss you! 

Although I’ve been long absent, I have a zillion blog posts in my head. But I’ll release them if you’re interested. Or if you’re not interested. Tee hee.
Here’s what’s going on with me: 

  • A whole lot of stress at work in every way possible;
  • A husband about to turn 40;
  • A trip to Indianapolis because my winter tennis team won State (no thanks to moi!);
  • A trip with my mom to NYC to watch the US Open and celebrate her birthday!; and
  • Trying to figure out how to incorporate calm into my life, which may include – wait for it – seeking professional help. Gasp. {See what I did there, for those of you watching at home? I put it down in writing. In public. I’m taking some steps.} 

In addition, I’d like to discuss, in no particular order: The Night Of; the decision to grant Adnan a new trial (though I assume that’ll be appealed); the public market that may – please, please, please – go in across the street from us; the Packers’ new season; the possibility of us redoing our kitchen; board and batten; how much dogs sleep; and Wisconsin politics. You with me?

    Oh Jane, you’re too nice! I also wanted to add books. But I’ve read only two recently: Me Before You and Everything I Never Told You. Both were good vacation books, although they were both incredibly sad, because they were page-turners. I’m not sure I’d really recommend either one, though – not that I dissuade anyone from reading them, either. Semi-interestingly (maybe), while I plowed through Me Before You faster, and could barely put it down, I think EINTY was the better book and story.

    Do you have some recs for me?!

    I am also here and look forward to all you write. AND NYC!

    I’m here. What is The Night Of? And I am a big fan of professional help. I like lunch with you, too. 😉

    Nancy, The Night Of is the MOST intriguing show on the telly right now. It’s on HBO. It’s ahhhhhhhhmaaaaaazing. I can hardly handle how into I am. As soon as I finish an episode, I want to watch it again.

    I have not watched The Night Of. But I have watched Stranger Things.

    Feebrain, Aug 31-sep 4. We have grounds tickets for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and are exploring Manhattan Saturday. Are you in town?!

    Maybe? That weekend is mayhem in my neighborhood because of this big parade that happens every Labor Day, so I was thinking of getting out of town for the weekend… But i haven’t decided yet. I’ll let you know!

    I figured that might be some kind of ‘thing.’ Also, maybe you should come here sometime. Just a thought. We have a room waiting for you and Aaron will make you potstickers without meat.

  11. 11 Kristin August 24, 2016 at 9:02 pm

    Ok but I’ll eat them with meat too, Carol!

Scissors still life. #scissors #thecraftersbox
omgomgomgomgomg. It’s no joke, folks. THE TODAY SHOW. #sarayublue #ifeelbad #nbctv #soproud

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
