I’m tired. I’m betting you’re tired too. It’s been 84 days since Gov. Tom Wolf (Pennsylvania) ordered all schools to close and shortly thereafter all non-life sustaining businesses statewide to shutter. I wasn’t mad about it. I was glad to do my part to help flatten the curve. And of course, I didn’t want to risk getting sick either. Every person in my household has one or more preexisting conditions they can check on the high risk column. In that time, we’ve become pros at pantry and household supply inventory management. We started trying to do our grocery shopping 2-3
Because I’m feeling that they do. Or that they can. But I’m not sure. I like to think that I’m generally open-minded and consider differences to be part of the beauty of human existence.

We’re really just getting started here, but I’m definitely on board enough to want to see what she can do going forward. And I feel like she’s got a good shot at the nomination. This is the first election cycle where I don’t feel like I’m being forced to chose from among a field of candidates who are all basically the same.
