It’s Been A Long Time

Wednesday, December 18th 2019.

 

I haven’t posted anything since August 2019 Update, so it might look like I’ve disappeared, but I’m still here.  I’m still in the fight, but life has been crazy.

Over the last few months, my wife has continued to recover from her injuries.  She’s getting better, but still has a long way to go.  A broken knee doesn’t heal overnight.  Also, the narcissistic sperm donor’s health has continued to spiral downhill.  He’s currently in hospice with a prognosis of weeks.  On top of that, we’ve been fighting the flu/bronchitis/pneumonia since Thanksgiving.

If we weren’t crazy enough with all of that, we’re looking at building a house.  Something one notices real quick when recovering from knee surgery is how much steps suck.  After some back and forth about buying a new house or building, we decided to build.  If anyone reading this ever thinks “hey, that’s a good idea”, run full speed into a wall until the idea disappears in a concussive haze.

I won’t be returning with Daily Check-In posts for a while, but I’m back today for a special reason.  Today, the House of Representatives vote on two Articles of Impeachment against Donald Trump.  Yeah, a lot has happened in the last few months, and I’m waaayyyy behind, but here’s the short, short version: back in the summer, Trump extorted the new Ukrainian President into announcing that they were investigating Joe Biden’s son and withheld approved military aid until he did so.  After several weeks, the news of what happened leaked, and that led to an Impeachment inquiry where Trump’s White House obstructed Congress by preventing several witnesses from testifying, withholding documents, classifying transcripts, and going out of his way to attack Congress.  There’s probably a hundred crimes that they could have finalized, but the Judiciary Committee recommended two Articles.  Abuse of Power and Obstruction of Congress.  You can read the full articles here.

I hope to have another post later today going over the basics of the Ukraine Extortion.  I also need to catch up on most of what happened in the last few months.  People are in jail, out of jail, back in jail, dead, disappeared, turned into newts, and deported.  It’ll be a while before I’m back to daily posting, and the delay gives me time to look into what and how to cover.  Also, my writing is rusty.

 

Hope to be back later.

 

Thank you, and have a good one.

August 2019 Update

It’s time for a quick update.  I missed all of July, and it looks like it will be later in August that I’ll be back to posting on a regular schedule.

As I mentioned in my last post, June Announcement, my wife suffered multiple compound fractures.  Since that post, she spent a couple weeks in the hospital, a few more in rehab, and has been home for the last two weeks.  We’re still trying to get into a nice routine, but hopefully by the end of the month, she’ll be less cripply and more semi-functional.

What I’d like to do when I get back is host a Summer Recap post or series, I’m not sure which yet.  It’ll cover the bigger events of the season, like Jeffrey Epstein getting arrested for trafficking minors for sex and Robert Mueller testifying before Congress.

I miss writing every day, and I hate not being knee deep in the fight right now.  As soon as the wife is cleared for a return to normalcy, I’m back telling everyone how None Of This Is Normal.

June Announcement

I haven’t posted anything for a few days, and it might be a while before I’m back on track with a regular schedule.

This past Saturday, my wife was injured when she fell off of a horse.  She’s alive, but has a few broken bones.  She’s going to be on the shelf for a while.  Even after she has all of the surgeries she needs, she won’t be doing jumping jacks anytime soon.

I have some posts and info from the last few days, but my standard Check-In posts won’t be coming out like they have been.  I might have to scrap a couple that I was working on and focus on condensing what I can report on until things get back to semi-normal.

I’m not retiring this site, not by a long shot.  I just can’t spend hours working on it every night.  Going forward, I have to limit the amount of time spent on a post to an hour or two at most.  It might seem contradictory, but the Check-In posts could easily take several hours on and off to complete.

When a major story breaks, I’ll cover it.  If I can do a quick synopsis of the craziness of the day, I’ll do that too.  But I can’t use the existing format until I have more time available.

Thanks for riding along on this journey.
