CoViD-19: Surges "Entirely Predictable, Entirely Preventable" | Afghanistan Disaster | Domestic Terrorist Warning Over...Masks and Vax?? | Vote No On Recall |

Magnolia & Jacaranda Testing Strawberry's Patience on the Catio (Taken 8.15.21)

Today has been a really horrific day of news. The Taliban have completely taken over Afghanistan and while all the news channels talk about the ramifications, whose fault it is, what went wrong, I feel very distant from it other than when we went to war in Afghanistan in the first place, it was the last time I bothered attending a protest. It was really rich watching Liz Cheney barking all over the news. How much money did her criminal family gain on the whole dabacle? Sit down, Liz. 

Anyway, I wanted a low key weekend and I got it. I was in bed by 11 on Saturday, so Sunday morning was peaceful. I spent some time letting the kittens play on the catio, gave myself a pedicure, upped my brow game, made a brunch that would've cost me $30 at any restaurant, and finished some chores around the house before everyone else was even up. I didn't realize Reservation Dogs was only releasing weekly, so instead Nova and I started watching AlRawabi School For Girls on Netflix. 

I'm keeping it short because I'm in for a whole Monday of suck. We've got the electrician coming out at 8 in the morning and to do the work he has to do, we have to move my shelf of shit, my king bed, and everything out of my closet so he can access the attic crawl space. What a freaking nightmare. Then he's gonna leave gaping holes in the wall but we don't know when someone will be sent out to fix those.

Besides Afghanistan, we're still in the midst of a pandemic, Haiti's death toll from the earthquake is rising and they're expecting a tropical storm to hit on top of that, and on Friday the Dept of Homeland Security issued a warning that domestic terrorists may coordinate actions in response to health guidance measures. Even with all the bad news, I'm feeling quite content which comparatively feels like a luxury for which I'm grateful. 

Stay safe out there.
