Today’s prompt is “make a bulleted list of your day”.
I just can’t bore you all with the details of my routine when I am so bogged down with anxiety about election results. I’m in despair, I really want this to be over but I know there are a lot of mail in ballots that need to be counted… But then I read one headline about Trump trying to claim victory even though it clearly is not over, and I just don’t know how I can go out and face the world today.
But I have to. And I know that my husband has already made coffee, so I will go downstairs and have coffee and put my dogs and then when my children get up I will hug them, and then I will go to work. I will probably stop on the way to get donuts, because we all are in despair and donuts make everything better, right? And then I will hope that we are busy today, so I don’t have too much time to dwell.
Then I will come home tonight and make soup and bread, and my friend is coming over for dinner so we can commiserate a little bit, and maybe by then things will be clearer but I really do wonder how long this will take to have a real answer. And I’m just so sad it wasn’t a fucking decisive landslide, that we can’t just be rid of this orange asshole.
It’s going to be a long day.
