mid-week round-up

How’s everyone doing today? Honestly, I still feel like I’m in shock. My mixed bag of emotions includes sadness, disbelief, anger, and grief for what could have been.

But I also feel an overwhelming love for the people in this country, especially my friends and family who now face the very real possibility that hardship awaits. I believe we can all do good in spite of the roadblock we’ve found ourselves up against. I believe we can claim the power in our own lives to effect change and help others. This love and these beliefs are what I’m clinging to.

Today, I’m bummed…because I really, really, really wanted a woman in The White House. I’m mourning for our country and how it would have felt to have her, despite facing a loud-mouthed male opponent, come out on top. I was counting so much on the tears I would shed for her victory that I never considered the tears I would shed for us all if she lost.

Tomorrow, the fight continues.

Here are some links pertaining to last night’s results…

How’s everyone doing today? We spent the weekend and last couple days without internet but I’m happy to report that it has made a triumphant return. We joked that we were living in prairie times. Luckily we had DVD’s for entertainment and a library to schlep to in order to get some work done. It’s funny how reliant we become on this one little thing. I felt like a whiny child who got a toy taken away! Something to think about. I’ve always harbored a slight desire to institute a technology-free weekend once a month. Now I feel it’s a must! Could I even do it? Could you? Anywho, since we aren’t there yet, enjoy these links brought to you by TECHNOLOGY…

What are you up to this week, friends? My mom is flying down to visit us on Saturday, and I can’t wait to show her around. I hope she’s ready for lots of tropical plants and Cuban food! I just finished the book “Me Before You.” Have you read it? Chet’s mom mailed it to me the other day (Thanks!) and once I picked it up I couldn’t put it down. I’m looking forward to the movie! Hope you all have a wonderful day, and now check out these links…
