Do you have a talking husband? Mine is pretty quiet at home but put him in a car and he becomes a real chatterbox. I don't mind him talking while I drive but I do mind having to answer every statement. This week as we drove by a new apartment building he said "I wonder how many of those apartments are rented?" How am I supposed to know how many have been rented? If I keep driving and do not answer he says "You never listen to anything I say." My favorite is in springtime when the cherry trees are blooming. I say "Oh, look at those beautiful cherry blossoms," and he says "But look at the mess they make on the ground."
I attacked my closet this morning. I'm ready now to do a Goodwill drop off sometime later today. Now that I've conquered that battle I'll move on to looking at all the yarn stored in that closet. I heard a woman say that she had invested all her retirement funds in sock yarn. I can relate.
I'm really getting tired of these scam phone calls. I always forget what I'm supposed to do to block those calls.
The other day a young man called and referred to me as "grandma." Said he'd been to a wedding, had a little too much to drink, gotten arrested, and needed a little money. I told him my only grandchild was 14 and I knew for sure he hadn't been arrested after drinking at a wedding.
Today I had a call from a young woman, very excited, to tell me their records showed I'd stayed in one of their resorts and therefore I had won some big drawing. She was a recording so I couldn't tell her anything. Given I haven't spent a night away from home since 2009 I'm sure it wasn't me.
Not fatal, just annoying.
I'm having fun with Susan (daughter). She lives in Texas, not exactly the heart of liberal thinking. She ordered a tee-shirt from the Women's March but did not march. After the march she's become excited and decided to make herself a "pussyhat." I'm going to make one too. Neither one of us will probably ever use one but it keeps the spirit alive a little longer.
Anna Navarro was asked on CNN last night if she thought the Women's March was a moment or a movement? She said "The moment you hear I began knitting to make my own pussyhat, it's a movement."
I'm convinced President Trump is off to a good start now shooting himself in the foot. I can now turn my thoughts to happier subjects. He no longer needs my supervision, he's doing good.
I learned about a new website yesterday that I think is pretty cool for the 2018 House election. It's called Swing Left, enter your zip code, and it will give you the nearest swing district to where you live. You can then support the Democrat running in that district with a donation of your time or money. The nearest swing district to me is in California! I will definitely take a look at that race but I'm most interested in the district represented by Rep. Darrell Issa. He was almost defeated in 2016 so I will definitely make a donation to the Democrat opposing him in 2018 to see if we can't make this his last term in the House.
