Not much gets me down.
I don't watch a lot of news because it makes me cry. I've stopped watching most violent media because it's scary for me.
I try to be a positive person in both my career and my home life.
We live in an area that's pretty protected from the poor economy and from a lot of the negative issues highlighted in the media. Things affecting the coasts don't hit Nebraska for a few years.
But it's all getting to be a bit much. There's all of the economic stuff. Political debating about how to handle it all. Issues of rights for different groups of people. Education and how to handle that.
What tipped the scales for me, I think, is this friggin' flu.
Suddenly I'm checking online to see how many states it's hit. Where it is. What's going on.
I'm googling checklists for what to put in an emergency kit in our home.
I have the sudden urge to move to the country and grow my own food. Tomorrow.
That's just not me.
This mama needs to take a break from the news, I think.
I'm not a worrier and suddenly I am.
Could you tell me a joke or something? Lighten the mood?
