Just super

A couple thoughts for this week.

I’m stuck

I’m not exactly endorsing any democratic presidential candidates for one reason: TOO MANY CANDIDATES with things I like and dislike about each of them! I think I’ll be deciding when I get to the voting booth on Super Tuesday. No matter who you support, show up and vote.

And if your candidate doesn’t win – support whoever does and show up and vote in November. Don’t forget about elections for US Representatives and Senators, state and local races – all of these matter.  I know that I said those words before… as a disability rights advocate – these races all have very real impacts on my future!

 

Coronavirus

Stuff like this always makes my mom nervous. I can have a hard time when I get sick – takes me longer to fight off sickness. So, for me, I need to make sure that my caregivers are healthy, and I stay healthy. One thing to think about is that caregivers don’t make a lot of money and may not have a lot of sick leave. It’s easy to say, just stay home if you’re sick – but that’s not reality for a lot of people who don’t get paid much and may have no or little paid sick leave. Just something to think about… because that describes a lot of personal care attendants and support staff for people who may be whacked the hardest by this virus.

By the way, the picture below is from our family vacation to D.C. in 2009. The day before I got sick with what was probably H1N1, I was touring the White House when I started getting sick. I still need a do-over trip to  D.C. someday.

Let the editing begin

Starting to edit my book this week. I’m super excited because I care about the characters. I’ve missed them this past month!

That’s it for my super thoughts this week. Vote on Super Tuesday if you live in a Super Tuesday state. And wash your hands!
