Did I already say I was rear ended in traffic? I was not hurt, but my new car!!! It will be fixed and the kid's insurance has accepted liability. I strongly suspect texting and driving was a factor. The problem now is that I spend so much time worrying about the car behind me that I am afraid I will end up rear ending someone. Life is hard.
Some have accused me of having way too much time on my hands:

It stopped being hot very quickly. The leaves are starting to turn and day time temperatures have been in the 60's. It's as though a switch was thrown on the autumnal equinox. I put away the AC unit and dragged out a blanket. And I got to use my bright yellow rain jacket for the past two days, but I didn't bother with my bright yellow boots because it was a steady but not too hard rain. It's dark earlier and earlier now. Fall is definitely in the air.
Kavanaugh is proclaiming his absolute right to his choir boy status because he was a virgin through high school and college? He doesn't realize that may not be an adequate defense against a charge of attempted rape, or for that matter, a charge of exposing himself. Is it any different than Bill Clinton saying, "I did not have sex with that woman."
And of course there is his stack of calendars and no where does it say "got blotto shit faced and attempted to rape a girl. passed out before I could complete the deed. better luck next time." Wow, convincing evidence! This is someone who could end up on the Supreme Court? And I, a mere woman, am too stupid to make choices about my own body? Good grief.
(Really, some people make it so hard to practice loving kindness. So very hard.)
I was not popular or a big party girl in high school or in college, but I did manage to get to a couple of fraternity parties. He might have said, I don't remember that incident, but I can look back at my school days and childish ways and say I hope I have done differently since and I will dedicate my self from this point on to changing a culture that disrespects women. It was not a great time in our history and we need to not go back there. But he didn't. So I assume he is not that smart.
I think I might have some knitting to do. I have to make a beak and some wings for my owl.
