Life is going ok. I'm working part-time, temporarily at a dental office. I'm training for my third half marathon and my first full marathon. My sewing business is going ok. We got a new dog. My kid started school and I'm signing her up for swim lessons. She's behaving absolutely horribly lately, but I'm hoping it's a phase. My dad was doing ok, but is slipping a little bit now and needs to revisit the doctor soon. My mom is having some heart issues. My nephew continues to not do well and they've put him back on steroids, which give him high blood pressure..... I think that's all the major news for the last few months.
I just wanted to stop for a moment to say.....I'm sad to hear people acting so happy that bin Laden was killed. Don't get me wrong, I'm happy he was found - I just wish that justice had been served some other way, but I'm not entirely sure in what way. Perhaps that he just sit in a padded room for the rest of his life? I can't help thinking about how scary the moments leading up to his death must have been. How his family must feel. I know he was a horrible person and that he encouraged the killing of thousands of people...still I just can't celebrate the death of anyone. It's the end of a life. Maybe that's because I'm so scared about what the end of my own will be like?
I'll admit too that I'm a little afraid of what's to come because of this. Will the next leader be worse than this? Because you know something is coming....but what?
