You know, when I take a few days (or weeks) off from blogging I find it really hard to come back. It’s like not working out. The muscle is weak. I do have things to say. I always have things to say but deciding how is the muscle that’s out of practice.
N has been happily at school for a week now. We’ve all talked or texted pretty regularly. It sounds like it’s going well. The food is edible. The people are nice. The roommate is nice. Can’t ask for more than that after only a week.
The Husband and I found a new place to walk. We’ve been twice. The first day, photo above, it started raining so we trudged back to the car. We weren’t sure how long it would take to walk the entire route. We went back yesterday, in much better weather, and walked the loop. It is 2.7 miles which is a good distance for us. We took our time stopping pretty regularly to take in the view of Boston, Logan Airport, the harbor and the islands. We hope to go back weekly. It’s nice to add a new walk to our rotation.
Politics Alert. If you’re sensitive to political chit chat move right along. Don’t stress yourself out. I’m still keeping my eye on the news. So much going on. So much lack of judgment. So much overreach. I could pick so many things to rail against. But I’m only picking one today.
Hypocrisy infuriates me. I’m a live and let live kind of person. I believe that you should do you and I should do me. If you want a tattoo get one. I don’t. If you want to pierce your genitalia feel free. I’ll leave mine unpierced thank you. The VP today is quoted as saying “ The right of women to make decisions about their own bodies is not negotiable. The right of women to make decisions about their bodies is their decision, it’s their body.” Then the President made a speech mandating Covid vaccines to basically all. I could point out that his speech contained half truths (no, the available Covid vaccines are not FDA approved. The approved vaccine is unavailable. Call Pfizer if you feel the need to fact check me.) but I won’t. I personally don’t believe he’s running the show. If you disagree see the press conference where he said he was told what to say/do. Again, you are free to believe whatever you wish. As am I. Now tell me, are women allowed to say they don’t want an experimental vaccine that doesn’t have full FDA approval or is my body my choice only valid when it involves abortion? Seems pretty hypocritical to me. Body autonomy is body autonomy.
*That’s the Boston pronunciation of harbor, not me spelling it wrong. Really.
