Monday madness

On Craigslist

Rural Shasta County is sending law enforcement down to the San Francisco Bay area to help with riots – leaving us vulnerable. In our own city, we\’ve had protesters spray paint our Sundial bridge with swastikas and anti-police graffiti. They\’ve spray painted over veteran memorials, and have closed down Targets, CVS, and other big box stores. Tuesday they are organizing a \”peaceful\” protest in a major shopping area – at 6:30 pm. Is that lame or what? The city is afraid to refuse them, their time to protest but why have it in the early evening? They could stick around, linger, get heated up, welcome others who are the troublemakers – this is a recipe for disaster.

I\’m totally not going out today. I called Char, to stay home. She is downtown and she doesn\’t follow anything. I just want her to stay away from problem areas. 
I feel on the verge of tears – but I still don\’t cry. I feel pent up – I\’m trying to keep busy.

A year or so, I noticed that my outspoken and total obnoxious cousin, \”friended my son, Foodie on Facebook. WHY? She doesn\’t know him. She lives in Indiana. She argues all the time and is basically a Facebook bully. I restricted her from seeing my posts – she would argue with my friends and cause problems. I kept her due to our being blood cousins. Yesterday, Foodie told me that she and 2 other women friends of hers, have been stalking him on Facebook and commenting on all his posts. The problem that he keeps his setting on the public. What is happening to her? Has she lost it? Maybe she\’s off her meds? Then he tells me, she is messaging with him and arguing and won\’t stop. I told him to block her but he wants to keep pushing her buttons. I don\’t agree with that strategy. Finally, I decided it was time. I blocked her and another cousin who is also Facebook Bullies. I don\’t need that kind of family in my life. 
I\’m telling you – people are CRAZY.

Yesterday we had dinner at a friend\’s home. A small gathering and at first I didn\’t want to go – just lazy but am so happy I did. It was so much fun, talking to others and their children were hyped up and excited to see PEOPLE!!! The oldest child is 8 years old has been working on magic tricks and did some for all of us. He was pretty good! A good meal and so enjoyable. I didn\’t realize how starved I was for being with others.

looks like my husband\’s kugel
Betty: Kugel is a Jewish dish similar to a casserole or pudding. The dish originated over 800 years ago in southern Germany and became a staple with Jewish families throughout Eastern Europe. Jewish immigrants brought the kugel with them to the United States, where it continues to be a popular holiday dish today.

    z had words with a cousin on Facebook, then I realized I had not seen this person in sixty years, and even then I was 14 he was 8 we didn't really talk or anything. I basically just knew who he was. I unfriended this total stranger who just happened to be a first cousin. I don't need some people in my life.

    Debby, thanks for the info on Kugel. Looks yummy! Your evening out sounded like fun! Good to get out! Our town is a mess. I will be blogging about it later tonight. I cried a bit yesterday. It's just too much going on one after another. I really wish our church would reopen. Being around fellow believers in person I think would be so therapeutic, at least for me.Betty

    Yes, the people in this country, or at least half of them, are bat-shit crazy. Maybe that is why Mother Nature created that virus. Thinning the herd.

    I wish I could cry – for some reason I am bottled up. So I get stomach aches instead.

    It was good that you went to dinner at your friend's house. The magic tricks sound entertaining. I chuckled when you said their children were hyped up and excited to see people. The little ones, too, are feeling closed in I guess. I had about four boys play football on my yard yesterday, and I just let them play. : )~Sheri
