I've figured out the upside!

Every day, I tell myself that since there is nothing I can do about the national situation, I'm going to withdraw from the whole thing, and just be isolated and ignorant...and you know what? Things have gotten so bad that I really HAVE withdrawn and isolated myself! I am mentally ghettoed up! It's wonderful! I didn't watch the news this morning, or yesterday, or the day before...I may bloody well never watch it again!
Free at last, free at last! Etc! Folks, I'm not kidding when I say that I feel happier and more relaxed than I have in a long time. I know it will make me mad to pay my taxes, but it always does, and anticipating it won't help, and it's not as if I can possibly affect the situation. So I am going to pretend I live in Middle Earth and just not worry about anything.
I have the Best Bishop in the Country! I have the Best Husband in the World! I have 7 beautiful children! I have my wonderful animals and lots of paint and a word processor and pens and pencils. I certainly have more than enough to eat and drink, and for the time being I can still afford roll-your-owns. I have the sweetest life possible. I have no right to be anything but happy.
