I feel like I've had exposed emotions for the past year, at least. Here are some things that have me emotional & the emotions I'm feeling.
  1. •
    Wistful: I've been counting down the days for a while.
    It's a passing of time & all that but, as usual, I used to think of 50 as old. I don't feel old.
  2. •
    Embarrassed: Patriarchy will hold onto its position until its very last breath.
    I realized when Trump won the GOP nom, media kept harping on emails, & Sanders had his Stans, that misogyny could kill HRC's chance to become 1st female US president.

    Hopeful: Nature & nurture both matter.
    Children start off empathetic & are taught to advocate. What if that advocacy was not just about "self" but about "community"?

    He also is performing original songs next weekend.
    More posts likely. ✊🏼
No particular order or topic.

    Bathroom remodel
    1991 House needs 3 bathrooms updated. Master bath had a leak last year that caused the floor to get ruined. When we moved in 2002, that bath had been repainted but needed new drywall. 😬 Possibly in budget for March/April 2018.

    Backyard
    we've landscape ourselves over the years, but it's tough with drought, sandy dirt, constant sun exposure. Also two pine trees died of rot last year, leaving back fence exposed. Needs some creative planning.

    Bottom floor carpet on concrete flooring
    I'd like to lay hardwood on top but might prove difficult. If nothing else, new carpet.

My youngest is terrified of the big city. I was scared of things, at his age, too, but didn't blame it on city.

    Random murderers.
    I tried explaining that most people are shot by someone they know & none of our friends or family in SF are carrying weapons.
  2. •
    Fires
    There were some older buildings that burned down in 2015. Smoke was visible throughout the city, people were displaced, but luckily, no one was killed. Also fires just as likely in suburbs or country but that knowledge doesn't help him.

    Homeless people
    I expected this one. I mean as a kid, knowing how people should react & behave gives you a sense of comfort. People living on streets, not showering, etc. is disconcerting.

Things can get complicated

    Woke up at 5. Too early & went back to sleep. Got out of bed at 6:20.
    14-year old sound asleep & he needed to be in shower.
  2. •
    Took a shower, came out to both 14-year old & 11-year old doing nothing.
    Watching YouTube on devices while on couch & chair.

    Encouraged boys to get breakfast.
    11-year old complained then over-poured milk.
