FEB. 1. 2020: Have been watching the impeachment trial of Donald Trump. It’s sad how divided our country is. I keep remembering Barack Obama saying, “We are not red states and blue states – we are the United States.” What happened to those shining moments of hope?
FEB. 2, 2020: One of my friends flew off to New Zealand today for two weeks. A little envious. It’s on my travel wish list. Flight takes over sixteen hours. That’s a lot of in-flight movies!
FEB. 3, 2020: A surprise! One of my essays won Third place in the National League of American Pen Women Annual Contest. There were over 300 entries. I’m so honored! Title is, “Well-behaved Women Seldom Make History.”
FEB. 4, 2020: My brother, Carl, finally got the results of his tests. It is cancer. Doctor recommends surgery but must have it approved by the Surgical Board. Waiting again.
FEB. 5, 2020: Saw this on a sign today, ME…I’m finally happy with my life.
LIFE…LOL. Just wait a sec. So true, so true!
FEB. 6, 2020: The president was acquitted yesterday. Only one republican found him guilty. Many others agreed and said that he was guilty, but refused to stand against him. I guess the Republican Party is now officially the Trump Party.
FEB. 7, 2020: Watched some of the caucus gatherings in Iowa tonight. Lots of college-age people. One young volunteer offered to do her friend’s homework if she’d caucus for her candidate. Friend agreed. Strange way to nominate a president!
FEB. 8, 2020: No winners announced yet in Iowa. Problems with the new app they tried to use. Oh, the glories of technology!
FEB. 9, 2020: I’m going to stop asking, “How dumb can you get?” People seem to be taking it as a challenge.
