NaBloPoMo Day 8: Weekend Update
I know I said that I’d write about the meltdown I had yesterday, but now I’m not sure I really want to! Yesterday I woke up just feeling completely overwhelmed and found myself in tears over the laundry, work, the house, the state of the educational system, just everything. Add to that the fact that yesterday would have been my dad’s 63rd birthday and it all added up to a weepy Gumbomum. Señor Gumbo very sweetly calmed me down and we ended up going out for a nice dinner together, followed by watching “Gran Torino,” which is an amazing movie — hard to watch at times, but well-written & brilliantly acted.
Then I got p*ssed off when I learned that the health care vote went through with major anti-abortion concessions. WTF, Pelosi? And WTF, Obama? I am hugely angry and disappointed that they would let this happen. News flash, Democrats: You are the MAJORITY PARTY. Start acting like it and stop capitulating to right-wing interests!!! Grrr. Gumbomum angry!!! Time to write another check to Planned Parenthood.
Spent today catching up on house stuff, helping GumboBoy with a very frustrating homework assignment, laundry, and playing with Jing, Screencast, and Pixorial. GumboBoy is going to be making an interactive model (whatever that means) of the ancient Mongolian city of Karakorum, which sounds like a fun assignment but in reality will probably involve mishaps with a hot glue gun and Model Magic. Maybe I’ll post photos.
