Well, I can sit here staring at the screen until the sun comes up, or I can write something. Actually, I am a bit flabbergasted because I just heard through the social media what happened at the Boston Marathon. The news is very sketchy so far, and very incomplete, so I do not want to be the one that reports anything about it. I am sure that the various news websites can do a better job at that. I do not even know if we are talking about bombs or gas explosions, so at this point, that is anybody's guess.
I am affected only from a humane standpoint, in that I care about what happens to other people at an event where any kind of violence and injury and death is least expected. I do not personally know anyone who ran in this marathon. I do know, however, that I do not want to get caught up in the huge drama that it is being made of in the social media before the facts are gathered. I think by all means that everybody should keep a cool head and I hate to see knee jerk reactions.
That is all I have to say about it for now.
I am not quite completely awake, but am trying to be so with the help of some cups of coffee. I also had a tall glass of lemonade too to help me quench my thirst. I had two big bowls of vegetable soup last night and no doubt those have made me so thirsty. The soup was from a package and, even though it was a good brand, I think those are always a bit saltier than home made soup. I added extra vermicelli for volume and to help fill my stomach, but I still needed a couple of slices of breakfast cake to really feel full.
I have the bedroom and living room windows open, so Tyke hears every sound outside at night and now he is extra alert. His barking woke me up and I was concerned about going back to sleep in case he did that again. Of course, I can not stay up all night and I hope he will get used to the fact that there are unusual noises now and not worry about them so much. At least he does his job as a guard dog and I am safe.
I want to write: I have miles to go before I sleep, but that is not true. All I have to do is walk from one room to the other and go lie down in bed.
