I just want you all to know that I consider my blog a safe haven, a place to relax. I have a lot of emotions about tonight's vote* in Madison, but I will not be ranting about it here. Thank you, thank you, thank you to all who have shown support. I love you guys...
*The Republicans made a new rule that they could split the bill in half. They then voted on half of it and passed it. Did they vote to pass the money part? No. Just the part about ending collective bargaining! I'm watching a live feed right now of what's going on in Madison; people are calling for a nation-side strike of all union workers. A bus leaves this morning (from my school district) for Madison. (We have school today.) This is CRAZY!!!
Update (6am): Before I went to bed last night, I prayed to God for wisdom and strengh. I went to bed at midnight. One might think I would have nightmares after watching all the drama unfold, after hearing all of the chaos and radical ideas tossed about in Madison for hours before going to sleep. However, I did not. Instead, I had a had some wonderful dreams! I took a vacation to California, where I was immersed in some delightful art and architecture exploration (and I'm not that into that stuff, but I loved it!) It's 6am, and I feel happy and rested. I've even been singing!
So, I may have gone off the deep end. I'll keep you posted.
