- I truly think
we'll celebrate 11/7 annually for years to come as a
family. The relief was actually bigger than I thought
it would be considering I already knew the outcome
days before. Talya and I repeatedly cried, then
laughed... all day. We'd see a video and cry (Kamala
calling Joe particularly kicked her ass) and Van Jones
WRECKED me. I mean, literally everything
I have felt as a parent in one segment. I just
wept. I do not understand how ANY parent didn't
feel relief because of the exact same thing. The
literal foundation of what we teach our children was
combatted by Trump. Are there parents out there that
felt the opposite? That bullying is OK? Like, I get
the whole "make liberals cry" feeling (because I
certainly enjoy what's happening to Trumpers right
now) but at no point would I want Biden to act like
Trump. He's the president, not some dipshit on social
Very strange time.
But today! OH DID WE CELEBRATE. What a
beautiful day. The video will go here:
...donuts and a double rainbow. There's your entry
- I am not one
to believe in magical natural occurences happening
because of something else - but I do know that when
you document everything? Things align sometimes in
seemingly magical ways. Rain in LA for our family is a
magical thing. It had been SO LONG. So that was
amazing... and then the double rainbow? And the time
machine and oh man - every emotion.
AND DONUTS?!?! AHHHH.
- Just such a
wonderful day - the kids are so happy, I am so
emotional and I know shit's about to get really bad...
but for one day it all felt better. There's light at
the end. It's far away right now. But the news that
the vaccines are 95% effective + Trump leaving? Means
we stay. 95% effective basically means the
anti-vaxxers can't hurt us. I was scared it would
be 60-70% effective which means we'd need over 90% of
the population to get it. 95% effective means we can
be quite safe with 70-75% getting it and at 80%
getting it we can all but eradicate it. Never would've
dreamed in the summer it could be that effective. The
kids get to go back to school next fall. We get to
- I'm overjoyed.
Best ending to 2020 ever. Now, how can Trump steal it?
Comes down to those electors and he will do everything
in his power to get what looks like 37 electors to
refuse to vote to get Biden under 270. That's a lot.
But this is going to be an all-out attack like we've
never seen. We have to depend on local Republican
officials being honorable.
- Whew. Come
onnnnnnn democracy. Let's do this.
