Up until tonight, this was a pretty good week. Friday night, after work, we out to dinner at Berkley Coney Island, one of our favorite local restaurants.

Saturday morning we had breakfast with one of jebra's former band-mates, then the three of us went for a long walk at the zoo. The weather was great and the company even better. After our friend left for the airport, we headed to Canton for SEMGS. After the party broke up we headed home, playing Ingress the entire way.

Sunday we caught up on laundry and in the late afternoon, went to Costco to order two cakes. That done, we went out to dinner and played a bit of Ingress before returning home to finish the laundry and start getting ready for Monday.

Because it was our 30th Wedding Anniversary, I went to band practice with jebra and hung out while they practiced. Damien halted practice 15 minutes early so that we could celebrate our anniversary with the band and feed them cake. Assuming the band doesn't change the night the hold practice, the next time practice and our anniversary intersect will be on our 75th Anniversary.

We voted before heading to work. After work we had dinner at one of my favorite Thai places, then jebra took me to my guild meeting while he did some grocery shopping. The Guild held its annual Brown Bag auction and everyone seemed to be having a good time. I came home with a book and three skeins of yarn.

I exercised for an hour, took my shower and started getting ready for bed. Then I made the mistake of looking at the election returns. Now I'm distraught and very very worried for the future of my country.

I keep wondering what I need to do differently to make sure that the progress the country has made toward equality and justice isn't set back any further than what it was by the mere fact of Trump's election. I wish I were as rich as Trump thinks he is because there are so many organizations that are doing good work that I would like to support.

Yeah, I don't have any money either. But I have vowed to "not be silent, and to stand between any bully and someone vulnerable, and to use my whiteness for good." It's what I can do.
