Many thanks to all y'all for your kindness and support.
I'm trying to figure out why this surgery is draining me so badly; I am exhausted. Maybe I overdid getting ready for my annual inspection (one of the 'joys' of poverty) but it was something I couldn't avoid and I wanted to do it right; maybe the political situation here in Ohio has me scared and upset; and maybe I'm just plain damned tired of of my world (and a pox on those who keep telling me to take Jeff back -- my sign is Aries not this: $.).in any case, I'm trying to feel better and keep up on things around here. Bryce has been a godsend. I'm not allowed to do some things --like lift more than& 20 lbs. -- and he checks in to see what I need regularly.
I actually got dressed up and dragged myself to the symphony Saturday night and am glad I did because it was a lovely performance that marked our conductor's 30th anniversary with us and featured Sibelius and Brahms. Here's a quote from him on his long tenure: "There no good reason for a conductor who cares about music to leave the Canton Symphony Orchestra." I, for one, am delighted that he feels that way.
Ohioans are rallying in Ohio today -- and for the next two days -- as the Ohio House of Representatives considers SB 5 -- the union-busting bill in Ohio that's already passed our Senate thanks to our Governor's evil machinations. You can read more about it here. If I weren't in recovery mode, I'd be in Columbus protesting the evil the GOP is perpetrating this heinous act. AND we'll be rallying again on April 5th!
My favorite senator Sherrod Brown (who stood with Bernie Sanders in his filibuster) explains why our government isn't working on Rachel Maddow:
Thanks again to all y'all for love, loyalty, and support!!!! I treasure each and every one of you!!!
