Got my second cup of coffee sitting off to the side. Even though they might be the same, a second or third cup of coffee never seems to taste as good as that first one of the day.
I just got back from sending a money gram to my youngest. I will be so relieved when she gets herself in order and is doing better financially. She's getting a little too old for this and I would like to stop carrying around that mother's worry thing. She's been good about paying it back so thats a good thing... It will just be nice when she doesn't have to do it on a routine basis.
Talk of impeachment is getting louder. I watched a program on PBS yesterday and the historical and constitutional experts talked about how Bush is putting himself above the law and above the constitution. Thats not good. Especially for a psuedo democracy, know what I mean? They mentioned how the check-and-balance folks aren't doing their jobs either (Legislature).... nor is the news media doing a good job. They should be screaming out loud about the offenses to the constitution. (Bush tells Mier she doesn't have to appear before the committee... what the hell is that, anyway?) And lordy, don't let us learn a damn thing from history. We're too busy kidnapping and torturing people. Lets just keep repeating it all, whadda say gang?
It was a good program and good points were made. They vocalized what I couldn't put my finger on... I just knew something was amiss.
The mayor here, on a trial basis, is leaving two public restrooms open at the court house 24 hrs a day with a security guard on duty. I applaud him, but others are screaming "waste of our tax dollars!!" These people have clearly not stepped in human waste or had homeless people urinate on their buildings... otherwise they might think twice. I like the mayor. He seems to know a little bit about what its like to be poor, homeless, or disadvantaged in some way. The screamers just want to get in their SUVs and run over the poor folks. Of course, they'd still be screaming "get outta my way!!" and "Look what you did to my car, damn it. You got your blood all over the grill!!!"
Yesterday was kind of depressing. Nothing in particular happened, but I still felt badly. I had a 'wondering' if I had put my foot in my mouth... again. Sometimes my attempt at humor falls flat and leaves a big stink in the room. Thats all I have to say about that. Want a piece of chocolate?
Then an email I sent out wasn't delivered. That happens here and there all the time... ever since I got my own pc. Trust level for deliveries runs about 75%. Sigh.
I then started getting the chatty phone calls from my youngest. You know, to set the stage for the request. I knew what was happening, but I also know its a good thing to let me have time to process things first. Once that was all done, things seemed to lighten up a bit.
Its a bit muggy today. Cooler now, but muggy nonetheless. Hot and dry/warm and muggy... each have their drawbacks.
Oh... and I almost pooped my pants when I saw how much milk had gone up. Holy Crap, Batman!! When I got up off the floor I had to quickly check to make sure my pants weren't stained. They weren't, so at least I could finish my shopping.
