My Head Hurts

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.


  1. I am so irate! Ugh. I'm literally disgusted.

    Thinking of you. Big, huge TN (we'll be in the same boat too soon) hugs!!

  2. Wow. This is so effed up. I'm sorry. (Hugs)

  3. the stalemate had to end eventually. Since you don't want to rant about it I'm not saying anymore - beside I'm sure you know how I feel about most of it.
    I do wish you the best and hopefully this issue will not impact your public education work very much. It's easy for my to love teachers - I have teacher daughters.

  4. What a blessing for you to be able to sing in the face of this low blow. It breaks my heart.

  5. Sounds like the deep end might just be the place to be right now!

    God bless, I'm prayin' for ya Hon!

  6. I must admit, I have no clue as to what is happening but I will pray for you and the situation. SOrry, I am not big into the news and such...but if you come to sunny California we can get together!

  7. My friend in Milwaukee has been on her soap box all week and then some. I'm glad you got some rest!! I'm glad (sorry) I'm not dealing with all this!
