If I'm being honest, I was much more optimistic last Monday than I am this week. I suppose a slow progressing political collapse will do that. I knew there would be problems at last weeks' electoral college count, you'd either have to be living in a hole or lying to yourself if you thought that would go smooth. Anyways, political turmoil is not something I'd planned for heading into adulthood and it's certainly not something I think anyone was prepared for by any means. I think it's actually scarier that this isn't just happening here, it's happening in many other predominantly white first world countries as well. Makes alien abduction seem much more glamorous.
Happy to report I at least kept up with my vitamin and water intake, started listening to The Warmth of Other Sons by Isabel Wilkerson and binge watched about 14 episodes of 30 Rock. I did make sure to note times I apologized for things, or stopped myself prior to apologizing to see if there was something more fitting to say and it felt good. So I guess here's to accountability!
I am a Maine maker and mother of two. I dabble in graphic design and co-own a screen printing business with my husband of 9 years.
