Quiet



I realized last night I went the entire weekend and didn't speak to anyone -- I mean use my voice -- unless you count talking to the cat.  (dear god am I becoming the crazy cat lady???!!)

It was a strange sort of introspective weekend.  My cancer re-test is coming up in about 10 days.  I am hoping/praying that it is negative..... that would make it one year cancer free.  I have never made it past 6 months -- so I am really praying.  One year cancer free would be something worth celebrating ya know?  

I was thinking about Christmas - and whether I should bother to pull out all the decorations.  I don't think I'll have a party this year....... so who would even see all the work??? And I am going to Montreal to be with the kids for a few days over the holidays.  BUT to not decorate??? Needless to say no decision was made this weekend.

I was missing Angel.  She and I used to spend so many of our weekends doing something..... even if it was only drinking coffee in my living room.  Our friendship just sort of dissolved....and I mourn the loss of yet another relationship that meant the world to me.

I did a lot of thinking about politics.  Seriously how could one not after Tuesday's election in the States.  I don't 'do' politics... mostly cause I am pretty jaded about the whole government thing.  I haven't said too much anywhere about the elections - mainly cause they weren't "our" elections and I don't think I should voice my opinion.  But I was thinking this weekend how politicians always lie to get the votes -- and seldom if ever follow through on their promises.  Trump certainly knew what part of the population in the States to talk/preach to didn't he??? Wouldn't it be interesting (for lack of a better word) if he is like all the politicians who went before him -- said what was needed to get the vote and it really doesn't mean a thing?  Only time will tell.

AND I thought as I sat alone and watched the semi-finals of the CFL (Canadian football) that I was very glad it was Sunday night and the weekend was almost over.  I have a few things on the agenda this week - lunch with friends - visit with my therapist - winter tuneup on the car......... and so the introspective weekend came to an end.

The majority of us Americans did NOT vote for Trump and the country is still in shock. Watching him set up his administration putting ultra right-wingers, fellow philanderers and his own kids in charge has made clear just where things are headed. It's not a pretty picture.

I totally understand Michele -- I'm not living with it -- which is why I am reluctant to talk about the election. Truthfully he scares me
