Or so I have been informed by my boyfriend. I can’t really disagree. He’s right. I am a dork. We were chatting about a friend working in the garden. I said He’s probably hoeing, digging up potatoes. Boyfriend said He’s off being a pimp? I said Huh? Then got it and laughed and laughed. In response to my laughter he informed me that I am a giant dork.
He’s good for me, this boyfriend. Earlier we were on the phone (we talk on the phone a LOT because we are currently 2700 miles apart). I saw one of the top WordPress posts claiming Obama was not born in the US. I started grumbling and cussing and generally getting irritated. Boyfriend said Stop reading that. All it does is make you mad and you can’t change it. Unless you’re going to write about it, don’t read it. He knows me. He is right. I am on a mini news fast because I was getting so worked up at the general decline of the election. One can only become appalled so much before turning into a giant blob, eyes glazed, staring into space, drool dribbling onto the floor.
My daughter figured out how to use Skype. We chatted together this morning. Oh I miss her so much. Seeing her just made me want her even more. So close yet so far. She got some new clothes. I sent her a dress and some leggings and her dad took her shopping as well. She is growing like a weed, that girl. She’s happy to be with her dad and all his pets, but she misses me. I miss her too. We’ll be together soon.
My heart goes out to Jennifer Hudson. What a horrible tragedy. She is an inspiring young woman. I hope she has a lot of support to help her through this. If anything good can come from having the whole world in on her grief, I hope it is that people can provide some measure of support.
