Today, I had a number of activities planned. In addition to working at my job, there is homework to do and rain boots to purchase for my daughter's field trip tomorrow (forecast is not good). Add to this the every day activities of being a wife and mother and I am not a person looking for more to do! This morning, while enjoying a cup of coffee and still reveling in the 2018 election results, I learned of the obstruction of justice by the Trump White House into the Mueller investigation. Though we had been anticipating this offensive response by the Trump politicos for some time in reaction to any loss of power, watching the actual event turned out to be more grotesque than I imagined. Once again, I will reprioritize my life to show up and stand up to this injustice. Once again, I rushed to the basement to look for a poster board that I will color and design on my lunch break at work. Frantically, I will search out information on the internet about where to go and arrange for child care. This is the life I have been living with so many other people of conscience since the 2016 elections. Mad dashes to Michael's Crafts for markers and poster boards. Endless arrangements with relatives and friends to meet up or help one another with childcare so we can show up for our children, our future, and our world. This is my life now and I accept it.
