update,,an asshole helped

Well, gang, my chaos is being taken away from me. And I am starting to figure it out. Mrs K,who has cancer, and has fought it, and Tess,my hcp daughter, made a decision a few months ago to move. All I am gonna say is,, since 7 days ago, because our move date is coming quick,,June 6. We have placed our pets to new homes. Very carefully selected homes. and now Mrs K is seeing,,we made right choice. She deals with herself, I try to fight my drinking. Last 3 days have been fantastic. I dont feel anger anymore. Daughter is happy, we can BBQ on back deck and eat there without our Canine family. Both Mrs K and I overreached with our animals. We lost our focus,, I actually had a few drinks yesterday, and a few more today. And I feel different. I cannot find the dissent, the anger, I am cooking again, and understanding what I was fighting when I drink. ( present tense intentional.) I am thrilled. I for the first time in years,,understand me. Im not so far gone that I cannot see what happens day to day. I for the first time in 14 years, understand, I do not need the wine,rum or any. I just need Mrs K and Tess. And Mrs K is listening,talking, Tess is happy and not yelling. I will end this with, keep listening and keep your brain open, you'll get there.

And to Mr Timewise, who answered my posts with so many big,bad ass statements,so simple to type.

Live my life, my friend,,you are nothing.

I appreciate you all ,,but not Mr Timewise..who has no clue what we are going through.

a personal note to Pres. Obama,

Dear Sir,
I am no one in particular, I know my politics, I know my life. And I would like to share a personal feeling to you given those facts.

I watched you speak yesterday, I have seen and read your tweets these past few weeks. Quite frankly, they lifted me up. Even made me smile on some political websites I visit.

I understand that there are certain unwritten rules given your former position. I would offer that your position as an American is still fully intact.

Sir, I needed to hear your words yesterday, as I am sure many did.

I, as an equal American to yourself, will be selfish in my request. I need to hear sanity and compassion regularly. I ask, and even a bit of beg you,, please do not be silent. I need to hear you, America needs to hear you. Please use your position as an American and continue on your current path.

There more than a few of us who NEED it.

Article on vote by mail, that makes me stop, and ask,

It is a medium length read. Something is wrong with the page as I cannot copy/paste snips, and the comment link is nonactive. I read this article a number of times already, and I still view it as a projection from our "friends" on the other side.


From the references to Bush/Gore (Supreme court settling), To Kobach from Kansas stating that "fraud in VBM(vote by mail) occurs in a vast majority of states,except here, where I took measures to protect", to the point that many individuals, including Postal employees would be handling ballots.
The story made me pause, and wonder why are R's supporting this? are they projection what they would do? As Trump is quoted in the article from April, "Mail ballots are a very dangerous thing for this country, because they're cheaters"

As I said, the page appears to be glitched somehow regarding copy paste and comments. But, I would appreciate some of the views from those of us here, as the article did give me some pause on something I thought my mind had a grip on.

I come back to a thought of, R's cannot control millions of people who stand in line to vote, as easily as it could control hundreds of thousands of envelopes.

Maybe i am missing something as I am only on my first pot of coffee.

I feel Im losing the battle.

The virus,the shut down, moving, cleaning,cooking,talk to no one, just sit in this jail that we call a home everyday. It is affecting Mrs K as well as Tess. I just want to scream sometimes. The wine is back. At least not the hard stuff I keep saying. I just feel empty.
I just want to step back and reset. I want to feel SOMETHING except dread each day. Im backing off reading news as it is even more depressing. I just want to feel happy again.

end of pseudo rant, I just needed to get a few things out of my head. Im tired

True life absurdity

Mrs K is trying to settle her father's estate. All has been sold, the title company has told Mrs K that there was a very old debt that she did not pay and they can release the estate check until this company (LOWES) sends a fax.

Mrs K is right now on phone,,arguing with Lowes to PAY THEM slower, and with clarity, to pay them.

But they wont send a fax to title company because Mrs K forgot her pass code.

George Carlin could not even dream up the absurdity of this world's reality.

We all know you will fire.

Dr Fauci, so how about stop sidestepping with tweets that try to numb the public,and just be man enough to do it? Oh, I am so sorry,,I accused the IMPOTUS of being a man.

Who has the guts?

yes ,the turd loves his daily "briefings" the turd lives in a world of tv and cinema. Given that,,which reporter would like to win a Turd oscar for best supporting actor/actress? Who will be the one to push Queeg over the edge? who will be the one to force turd to scream.You can't handle the truth!!?
In my 60 years of life, I have learned, when someone wants to make up rules as they go along,,learn the rules and then use their rules against them. works 95 % of the time. And then just do it. Time to step up media,,we all know the rules of the game now.
