Wake Me When It's Over
I am usually a "news junkie". I read the newspapers. I watch TV news. I read about it on the internet. I take pride in being an informed citizen and voter. However, I can't take it anymore! Our Congress reminds me of little kids arguing and pointing fingers: "he started it!" "No, he started it" and on and on and on.
It's too disgusting, too frightening, too nerve wracking to follow what is going on in Washington D.C. It makes me worry about our future. It makes me stress out too much. It puts me in a bad mood and raises my blood pressure.
So I am boycotting the news. I'm going to focus on other things. I'm going to declutter and organize, talk to friends, do some sewing and quilting, try out new recipes, walk on the treadmill, walk outside, read novels. Maybe I will take up painting. My life is not going to be affected by the trials and tribulations going on in our government.
Someone, wake me when it's over!
