And so how is everyone’s day today?
Really?!…Mine started with a call to my congressman. Check that, many calls…many, many calls dialed
yes kids, I said dialed
no kids, I’m not going to explain what dial is
Google it, okay
Anyway, I tried to get through to my congressman starting at 6 AM West Coast time and dialed repeatedly unable to even connect until finally:
Honorable Jeff Denham is not answering.
What the fresh hell???!!!
And so while I watched and listened to our Republican-controlled House ram this Trumpcare Bill through before their next seven day recess, along with so many other Americans, I did my very best to reduce all of the anxiety and stress.
Of course my form was as exquisite as Adriene’s. Of course it was! And it helped. At least I stopped screaming at CSPAN imagining that my congressman could hear me since his Washington and Modesto offices stopped taking constituents’ calls. But all the Nadi Shodhana and Downward Dog and Cobra and Warrior poses wasn’t going to stop my congressman and his GOP colleagues from completely ignoring the will of their constituents, from their vote and from their post-touchdown end zone celebration in the Rose Garden because we have a POTUS that needs to be happy and smiling; nor was it going to stop me from thinking of how this could potentially harm my family – the ones who won’t get to stay on their parents plan forever.
What a day!
A day that calls for ice cream and laughter and singing along to pop songs on the radio and hugs and after they go home to mommy, wine
And no apologies for run on sentences. Not today.
