TWTW - the one with the dads

Thursday night campaign fundraiser for MFD at Tabu with Rep. Brian Sims and Ian Morrison. I got home at 10 something, packed up, and headed to the shore to sit in traffic on 42 at 11 pm. Blah.
Friday morning MFD hand washed the siding and cleaned the deck furniture. I did my final house walk through and took the couch cushions to be cleaned, then we hit the beach for a perfect weather day, reading, resting, and lunch at Crunchik'n before heading home to pick up the cushion covers, shower, feed/walk/sit with the dogs for a bit.
We biked over to meet Melissa, Stephanie, and Alex for dinner at Jon & Patty's, then headed to the boardwalk to meet up with Blane, amble around, do the rides, etc.
Saturday morning was last minute house shit (new sign from RV Metal) before our first weekly guests checked in. MFD was off for home by 10 and I walked the dogs and hit the beach. Big ass slice of Primavera for lunch (Laura's fave, I can't disagree), some food prep, porch time, and cleaning including moving the couch and nearly putting my back out night, reading, and dropping into bed exhausted around 11.
Sunday was not my day. I woke up to no peace, Bruce tripped me and broke my Dyson stick vac I got for a unicorn price in about five places and really hurt my hip (he had the decency to look contrite), I found the bottom of the sofa bed dripping rust, It was hot AF and I was stopped about 50 times on our last walk, horrible traffic so I had to cut through NJ.
At home I dumped the dogs and the cooler, ran to see my father-in-law, ran back home to throw a caprese platter together, threw on some lipstick and got on with it. Debbie brought me a large DD iced to soothe my nerves. I dumped about half of the balsamic/oil on my lap in the car. It's fine. Fine. FINE. We stopped at Mom & Rich's to see Rich then on to a great, relaxing dinner at Aubrey's parents. Happy Father's Day to all the wonderful dads in my life!
Weekly food prep: breakfasts will be egg muffins. I didn't need Monday lunch so I still have today to figure that out but I think it will be chicken and mushrooms over pasta. Dinner is BBQ chicken, steamed veggies, and I'm not sure what else yet. Maybe soup. I know, it's 90 degrees...but it's in the freezer and the air conditioning is on.
I got home close to 8, changed the sheets and put them in the wash, finished a book and started another and was in bed reading before 9:30. We were exhausted in a good way.

Today, calling everyone and anyone - my Senators, state rep, city office, churches, everyone - about this. Resistbotting too. What are you doing on this? I read a quote from Glennon Doyle that was something like heartache without action is basically apathy. Don't do that. Act. Please. Let me know if you need help figuring out what you can do to make a difference here. 
How was your weekend?
