I am listening to Naomi Klein’s book ‘Doppleganger’ and I have to say there’s one thing the left refuses to accept or address imo… she agrees with Ehrenreich* that the failure of progressive policies is they (politicians) never went far enough. Unfortunately what she fails to acknowledge is the racist backlash that always follows a progressive move left. There were many wonderful public programs that were embraced & cherished by all that have since been attacked by the right and center left - /1

Every time I can come to Spain, I look out on the Mediterranean and I thank the ancestors and my relatives and friends who have passed away for helping me to do what was necessary and supporting me in my quest to GTFO of the United States to stay sane.

Sen. Joe is registering as an independent, according to a person familiar with the matter — a move that is sure to stoke speculation he could run for Senate or governor without a party affiliation this fall. https://www.politico.com/live-updates/2024/05/31/congress/manchin-independent-west-virginia-senate-governor-00160969

I said the other day that at this point, I couldn’t be surprised by bad, only good. Well, CALL MY ASS VERY, VERY PLEASANTLY SURPRISED! 😁 I needed a win.

@StillIRise1963 I’m so with you! I’m listening to a podcast with the coverage of the announcement (I was working earlier) and I was crying as they announced each guilty verdict.

I gave up trying to reply to everyone.

I’m relieve, happy, relieved, overjoyed, did I mention relieved?

I was truly shaking so hard, I had real trouble typing.

What I didn’t tell you is that we MAY have found a townhouse to buy, which we saw right before the verdict was read.

We’re deciding now.

This day.

This. Day.

THANK YOU ALL for your kind words and love. Back atcha.

TODAY IS THE DAY.

We're in Washington now and arrive in this afternoon. 🇨🇦

Our new home.

It's surreal, scary, wonderful.

My posting will be light until we're settled in a little.

Thank you for all your amazing replies and good wishes. I read them all, but can't reply back.

Big hugs to all of you. 🥰

Who’s going to tell the Pope that apologizing for the “vulgar term” means little now that we know how he really feels about gay people.

Danetteb,
@Danetteb@mstdn.social avatar

@StillIRise1963 I think it’s funny that people have bought into the narrative that this pope is reforming the church. He’s not and never has been. He’s just into optics.

After a long morning of loading the POD, stuffing the car, cleaning, scrubbing, double-checking, all on very little sleep… we’re off! here we come.

This man I live with falls asleep in the middle of the movies we’re watching. I know because he snores.

Danetteb,
@Danetteb@mstdn.social avatar

@StillIRise1963 when my former bf did that - if we were watching something I didn’t want to watch, I switched it over it annoyed me so much. Particularly because if I started to fall asleep I’d get “are you gonna watch this? You’re falling asleep” 😒

So here's how it's going:

We got all the furniture into the POD and now have to pack what's remaining in the kitchen. So things are a little messy

Our twins are down from Canada helping, & their dear friend is here for the night from San Diego, to see them. We adore her. But it's a little chaotic

At 4:30 am we get a text--coincidentally we're awake--from our pal/realtor! We'd missed her earlier text, we have a showing today at 12:30. Oy. & why was SHE up?

Scramble time

Just a normal day

@GottaLaff 😭 moving is always so chaotic. Hang in there

POD #2 is now full of furniture and nearly ready to lock up. I'm officially exhausted.

Day. After. Tomorrow!

🇨🇦

Have a great evening, everyone!

So, I just got this email from the airline I’m flying telling me I can “bid” for a seat in business class. What?

Danetteb,
@Danetteb@mstdn.social avatar

@StillIRise1963 maybe business isn’t full and it’s a new way to get customers on the flight to spend more money? Esp in light of new restrictions…

Today is my 21st wedding anniversary. On our first wedding anniversary, we were pretty broke, so hubs made me homemade coupons for massages, but he spelled it wrong, so I got a handful of printed out coupons for 1 Hour of Messages. So, every year since I get something like this:
