Thursday Thoughts - Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down

1. Today is my first day working since last Thursday. I had awesome days off, some you heard about in TWTW. Tuesday was sunny and hot and I ran to Target to check out organizational options. If you have a house with no storage and need to utilize all spaces, you might need the zinus 18 inch bed frame. You can get a whole damn tote under here. Tuesday MFD was working, but we went to Corson's Inlet followed by 59th Street. Inlet beach and ocean beach. I always prefer the ocean beach. 

2. Good eats this week: we ordered Island Grill Tuesday night and brussels sprouts pizza from the farmers market.
3. Wednesday was not a beach day, but it was a farmers market, timed to coincide with needing your second cup of coffee because you ran out of your home brew; drop off laundry, go BACK to Target for more storage bins now that you know the size, finish a book, take a nap, order a king mattress and bed frame, reorganize your bedding, make lists type of day.

4. And look at dog photos from the week since the Old Dogs went back to Philly Wednesday morning and you miss them already.
5. And paint your raggedy ass nails. Lots of swimming in the ocean is not kind to nail polish. This is LD by Olive and June.

6. It was also a day for the best friend dogs to make their triumphant return to Dog Beach.
7. And a day to wonder what if the past week or so is finally what it will take for people who say they love this country to NOT vote for donald trump. You can't say never forget on September 11 - meaning never forget the nearly 3,000 lives lost, never forget how we came together as a country to stand as Americans -  and cast a vote for a man who considers military service members who died or were injured - many in service because of conflicts related to September 11 - losers and suckers. How did we come to a place 19 years later where an American president can say that and still run for re-election with loud support from citizens? Would Americans of the afternoon of September 11, 2001, support this man? I don't think so. Why would you do so now? 

8. He also admits downplaying the threat of coronavirus ON TAPE, choosing inaction and leaving us with nearly 190,000 Americans dead, including 7,000 on the front line in the medical field. Most of these deaths were preventable. Please think about how things connect. His inaction and the lack of coordinated federal response led to these deaths, as well as the death of a lot of businesses, job losses, kids not being in school in person, etc. Instead of doing what we know we can do as Americans - rise to the occasion and figure shit out, adapt and fund it - he chose inaction and suffering for the American people from death to financial losses to tremendous strain on parents and teachers as back to school realities hit everyone. Shit rolls downhill - if your president brushes it off, so does most of your population, leaving ALL of us caught in a spin cycle it feels like we're never going to get out of as countries around the world have all responded more effectively, doing what they needed to do early and decisively to save actual lives; and beyond that financially saving their people, propping them up individually and as businesses with more than the pittance funding these people in government have passed down, and moving forward much sooner than we are or can.

10. E-cards: I've had some incidents this week.

Two days of work this week. I think I can do this. 

The words following the hyphen are the song I am listening to when I start the Thursday Thoughts post. This week is Talking Heads Once in a Lifetime
