Did any of you have “Trudeau goes full Castro” on his 2022 bingo card? Because I didn’t. And our idiots are preparing to throw the national guard at our own truckers.
Younger son is working on the boxes NOW (TBF he had to recover from work on house) and I told him that this is supposing there’s a way to ship next month.
This accelerated a bunch of things. Let’s say I spent the morning looking for office furniture. But I’ve never bought furniture. And I’ll be several times d*mned if I’m going to spend thousands of dollars on ONE bookcase. NO. And several hundred for fake wood? Also no. The current furnishings can limp on till I can build new.
Whether there will be wood, is another question, but I’m open to looking for scrap and throw-outs.
And yes, I DO realize I’m being unreasonable.
Meanwhile the news came down that Trudeauscu is getting ready to shoot drivers and gas them and kill their pets.
My heart is breaking for the pets. And anyone who says they shouldn’t be there, is going to get chased around the blog and hit. It was a for-real peaceful protest, and these are good people. They don’t understand evil. I do, but even I am upset.
So, what do you do when you live in interesting times? Besides keeping your clothes and weapons where you can find them in the dark?
Sometimes all you can do is hold on. Just hold on.
Find something that brings joy every day. Can be something very small. (Right now, don’t have it. Other than Dan and cats. But I mean an event or thing you do.)
You know, in the seventies, sometimes very stupid Brazilian soap operas kept me this side of the sod. “I want to see what happens next, and I know I’ll enjoy it.” Or columbo. Find something. Lunch with a friend. Books you wand to read (mine? Soon, I promise.) Something you want to do. JUST hold on.
Eventually, things will get better, and there will be stuff for you to do. Things you must do. For now, hold on. (If all else fails, do as Jerry said, and make things very clean. There might be a time you don’t have time for maintenance.)
The water is about to get rough. Find a life vest and hang on.
You will be needed.
