March 2019 Update – House Fire

For anyone who never got to see the inside of the Off Grid home we lived in for years BEFORE it burned down in the fire, this is what it looked like. It was beautiful. We felt blessed, and so thankful to be able to live in such a special place. It was expensive, and […]

The Light

6 more lbs, & I’m back to the lowest weight I had reached while living off the grid, before the house fire. Really happy to have made it back to where I was before 💗 This year + has been extremely difficult. No idea how we got through this huge loss, the fire, the panic, […]

Saturday

You know what – I am going to take a moment to celebrate the good things, despite all the trauma that occured this last weekend.   When I had to call the police, because my father tried to pepperspray our foster pit bull, who was behind a baby gate, for BARKING of all things – […]

Trump Supporters Solemnly Swear They Are Up To No Good…

“How do we have a normal discussion with a group who is willing to believe nonsense & lies, while ignoring the horrors of the Trump administration by claiming it’s all FAKE?

How do we, as citizens, work together to protect & defend those who are or will be targeted, instead of wearing blinders to block out the pain of others?

The very first step is all of us learning to accurately tell the difference between white supremacist created propaganda meant to divide & create chaos, and real shared online news & facts.

If we see a “meme”, fake news, propaganda, etc pass through one’s social media feed, it is now our responsibility as human beings to report it, spread the real info, & call out every single divide & conquer technique.

Why is this important?

To protect the vulnerable. “

The MAGAt Cries Alone

Someone cries their #MAGAtTears into their snot covered sleeve, in a dark room only lit by an artificial glow from screens.

“I’M NOT A RACIST!!!!!” they scream into the darkness.

The howl is heard by none.

In a fit of rage, the person spends almost 24 hrs, logging on & off fake instagram accounts, commenting about the only thing that matters to this human.
Skin color.

“Thank you, White lady!!” the human copies & pastes over & over & over again.

Every post.
Every account that they are not currently locked out of….
The Freudian Obsession with skin color is apparent.

The MAGAt misses the irony, entirely.
All this Racist Bigot can see, what they obsess over, what they can not look past in their frothy at the mouth, twitchy state, is STILL skin color….

Mommy Needs….

I always thought the “Mommy needs a drink” meme to be strange.

Not shaming drinking…. Just sounds more like:

“Mommy could use a break”

“Mommy could use a vacation”

“Mommy needs a nap”

“Mommy needs more help around the house”

“Mommy needs an uninterrupted shower”

“Mommy needs a date night”
Etc.

Would we be cool with “Mommy needs Ecstasy”
“Mommy needs cocaine”
“Mommy needs to trip on mushrooms”
“Mommy needs a bong hit”

Some people might be ok with some of those.

Some of us are going to be horrified at the thought of every single one.

Point is, this meme should really sound like:

“Mommy needs the time, space & freedom to relax in whatever method she finds helpful, without being ridiculed or shamed, because we are adults, & the infant/child is being cared for by another parent/guardian/trusted adult.”

Relax, “Mommies”
Ignore anyone attempting to shame you for taking a very deserved & necessary break.”

White Privilege

“What you described is exactly what you are doing.

A person is kneeling peacefully.
You are screaming that his sitting down quietly before outdoor time is making you very angry, & therefore HE needs a time out & no dessert!!!

Do you see the issue?

You can be angry that he is protesting all you want – that doesn’t make what he is doing wrong, and it certainly doesn’t insult or affect any other human being while he is doing it.
Buck up, wipe away the tears, & go play somewhere else, FAR away from Colin Kaepernick…”
