Don’t know what it’s like where you are, but it sure seems like spring has arrived here. Didn’t even have to warm up the car this morning before Starbucks, WOOHOO! And my day started with a good cuddle with the LilyMonster, who has forgiven me for not napping at lunch yesterday. She then followed that up with trying very hard to get herself stuck between the couch & end table. Then a round of belly rubs and bunny kicks, and she’s now doing her best impression of the Sphinx and being all dignified.
I can’t stop watching the news on Ukraine – and I can’t wrap my head around it. I mean, I get that Putin is just a monster, but seriously, what the fuck is the point of any of this? Russia is huge already, leave the rest of the world alone. And if we let him get away with this, he’s going to keep going – maybe we shouldn’t have let him annex Crimea or invade Georgia, or fuck with Syria or any of the other shit we’ve just let slide – we might not be where we are today. This is definitely a worldwide fuckup.
I will say that I hope I never have to be even half as brave as the Ukrainians, cause I’m pretty sure I couldn’t do it.
It makes everything else seem so, IDK, meaningless? Or at least not terribly important in comparison. Working and going about my business and my to do list and whatnot feels very weird, but I’d prefer not to be homeless, the dishes won’t do themselves and the pantry doesn’t get magically restocked by itself.
But, the mile long to-do list was done, and I will hit the grocery store in the morning, and I’m off to get the car washed. Life goes on whether we’re happy about it or not.
