I have been an absent blogger. I decided to stop putting my attention on food. I actually decided that I wanted to go down to my "good weight" I wanted to be healthy. I have now lost the 50lbs that I gained. I am down to my good weight. I know that food and blogs can be healthy but that isn't what I wanted. Food has started to bore me. However, cooking doesn't bore me so I am in a quandary. So, what did I do? I got a puppy. Her name is Ruby. She is an amazing dog and I am so glad she is ours..
I am going to write down my feelings about the election. I don't normally just write. I have to do so. I have ranted and raved over the whole Trump thing. I felt my heart race with anger just seeing him on TV. I said things that my dear Dr. Food even lifted an eyebrow to (and that takes a LOT from the man that has lived with me for 16 years). I was despondent when the subhuman won. I was. HOWEVER.... I have gotten to the point in my life that I have the new philosophy that if you don't participate I don't want to hear the whining. I know I know, how dare I? I know you are entitled to your anger. I know. However, if you are not willing to take action and get involved in your community or help someone who doesn't have as much. Stand up for human rights. DO SOMETHING. If you aren't willing to do this then I think you are a hypocrite. There, I said it. I think the people yelling the loudest are the ones that are behind the computers giving all the opinions and doing nothing. Do SOMETHING. I don't care if it is talking to your elderly neighbor. Offering your time to a lonely person. Donating money is great and much needed but what about your time? You willing to put in time for the good of the whole? We will see.
I am personally volunteering my time and will add even more time to do so. I will also donate to different charities this year. I will be more thoughtful. I will be better. That is the only way I can think of to be part of the solution. I am really embarrassed by this country and the way we have handled this election. It makes me want to barf.
