Are You Kidding Me?

The stupidity of life in Texas just doesn’t quit – today, Governor Abbott declared the state 100% open, at 100% capacity, and ended the mask mandate. Are you kidding me? Here’s a news story reporting the details of this latest shit show:


Here’s hoping that people still do the right thing, wearing masks and keeping their distance….but, what worries me is that so many people in this damn state voted for Ted Cruz, thus certifying that they aren’t necessarily playing with a full deck.

Wherever you are, I hope you’re staying safe – keep your masks on, friends, and social distance like a mo’fo. All of us have to work together if we are going to get through this….regardless of what stupid ideas Governor Abbott has. Bloody reckless.



Update: Snow-pocalypse 2021

Welcome to hell…and hell has frozen over. As I mentioned on Monday, we got a bunch of snow here in South Texas – it was pretty on Monday, we had fun playing outside…it was okay. Until the power went off and didn’t come back on. Things got rough overnight into Tuesday, and yesterday morning was the worst. We managed to get out, went for a drive to warm up and charge devices. Thank goodness.

We started getting bits of power late yesterday – an hour on, then many hours off…not much of a pattern, but we’ve got a routine of what we do when the power comes on. It’s amazing how quickly we as humans can adapt to shitty conditions – thank goodness for resilience….we are going to need it.

One major takeaway from this week is just how little we need to be happy – apart from basic necessities, we don’t need much. I’ve not turned on a computer in days (and I don’t miss it), I’ve spent lots of time reading, cuddling pups, and layering clothes. Pretty simple life I’m living these days! I haven’t bothered with fussing over my hair or makeup, because there’s no point – I just want to stay warm, be comfortable, and keep the family safe. Priorities, my friends….priorities. ♥️

Anyway, we will hopefully return to our regularly scheduled posts and programming soon – but until then, think warm thoughts our way, and hug those you love tightly. ♥️
