Domestic Violence is not a Partisan Issue

Domestic Violence is not a Partisan Issue

The Daily prompt of the day is the word simple so I have a very simple request.

Whether we dislike or like Trump I think the one thing we can agree on is that Domestic Violence is not a partisan issue. If we don’t then I don’t know what to say because abuse is not love.

I previously posted a few days back in Why I marched, the Violence Against Women Act is on the chopping block and if cut would be terrible news. If you want, no pressure believe me I’ll still read your blogs, please go to the National Network to end Domestic Violence site and send a letter to your representatives if you live in the United States. You don’t even have to write anything they fill it all out for you!

Tell Congress: Violence Against Women Act Funding is Under Threat

Have a great rest of your day!

 

Why I marched

Why I marched

As I am sure many of you have heard, this past Saturday was the “Women’s March.” It was held not only around the United States but across many countries. I had the pleasure of participating in the one that was held in New York City. I originally thought I would head down to DC but my growing anxiety for large gatherings kept me in my home city. The thinking here was that so long as I am in NYC I know how to get home should I have an attack of some sort. Funny part is there were hundreds of thousands of marchers and I never once felt anxious.

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

Has anyone reading this ever seen the show the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt? It is a Netflix web sitcom… (so yea this is now a thing… new shows are not only found through the television airways… check your subscription sites!)…. that  follows the life of Kimmy Schmidt.

Anxiety doesn’t care about your situation!

Anxiety doesn’t care about your situation!

I am blessed beyond measure. Great super awesome loving guy. Roof over my head. Amazing best friends. An adorable cat. A job. My health. A repaired credit score. My MLS degree. I am truly and wonderfully blessed. I know I am mentioned this before and I will always say it. I am not in any way unaware of my blessedness. However, none of it completely cancels out my anxiety. It shows up uninvited to the party. For instance, New Years Eve. Continue reading

When you bring a pet into a new home!

When you bring a pet into a new home!

I made a false assumption these past few months. I believed that because my cat knows me, and what I assume loves me, that he would have no issue moving into our home. We made all the necessary preparations. I mean we had the best preparations. The greatest preparations. No one knows preparations better than us. Believe me ask anyone.

I mean on Sunday, we went to Target and purchased all of the stuff! The litter box, litter, food and water dishes, a scratchy pad, cat food, AND a kitty snack! Not to mention the CAT NIP… what is not to love about all these great preparations! All that was missing was the cat!
