We have a wonderful light weight cordless vacuum. I kicked off the morning by vacuuming my bath, bedroom, the kitchen, and half the living room. Bob met me and finished the living room, moving on then to his bedroom. While he finished vacuuming I mopped my bathroom and the kitchen. He finished by mopping his bathroom. Wheeee, it's done! Less than an hour!
Well not exactly, there's that matter of cleaning the bathrooms and dusting. I'd much rather clean a bathroom than dust. I have the duster laid out to remind me and will make an effort to complete that task when I finish here, if I'm not distracted. (I feel a distraction coming on.)
Daughter and I missed the Women's March and now we're sorry. A little late we're each knitting a 'pussyhat,' knowing there'll probably never be a chance to use them. I'm now calling mine a 'protesthat.' Every stitch I knit is a protest against the actions of our current President. I realize that's not going to do anybody any good so, while I'm knitting, I'm thinking about actions I can take to let Congress know this situation in Washington is not acceptable. I refuse to normalize the actions of this White House.

Have you wondered if contacting your Senator and Representative makes a difference? The answer is in this Washington Post article on repealing Obamacare. I really like this article. I urge you to read it.
I'm now seeing senators saying their phone systems cannot handle the volume of calls they're receiving and suggesting constituents not give up but switch to email if they're unable to get their calls answered.
Letters are the least effective method, with phone calls being the most effective and then emails. Guess I''ll start emailing. We can all do that. It's also suggested you contact their offices in their home states and districts as that's more effective than contacting Washington. There's also a better chance of getting your call answered.
In his last interview from the White House, Former President Obama mentioned Jason Kander as a possibility for a 2020 presidential candidate. The Washington Post has published an article written by Jason on the topic of voter fraud. You might find it interesting.
