I know no one expects me to be bubbly and positive all the time, but this morning I feel as though I have nothing but angst and negativity. I’m not sleeping well, haven’t since I got back from Tennessee. Not one single night have I gotten more than 5 hours. This does not lend itself to a positive outlook.
My mother is not coping well with her forced dependence and restricted mobility, and it came to a head last night in a stupid fight. I have a busy work week that I’ll have to interrupt today to get a new computer which requires two hours on the road for a 30 minute appt.
And I can’t seem to stop watching the news. Tornadoes killing people in March?? Another mass shooting-123 in the first 86 days of 2023. Really?? Anti-trans, anti-LGBTQIA+, anti-women laws multiplying like mutant rabbits. Book bans. When did this country become so fascist? How did we not see it?
Ok full stop.
Tonight is trivia night. It’s been three weeks since I last saw my friends and existed in their midst. I need a dose of their insanity, their shenanigans, their acceptance, friendship, and love. It’s been a while since I’ve needed them this badly. Thank all the beneficial deities of the universe for my friends.
