Response to kimbutgar (Original post)

57. Home, painfully rehabbing from a total knee replacement, trying to talk hubby into stocking up...

..the pantry and freezer. He just couldn’t; it’s not in his skillset. I had to wait until I was mostly off the walker, and then called my SIL for a ride to Trader Joe’s where I filled a cart.

In March I furloughed my 2 cleaning ladies. In my mind I somehow thought I would be able to have them back in 3 months, but it was not to be. Cita texted me just a few weeks ago asking about returning, and I gave her our timeline — finish vaccinating in March (this month), taxes in April, then hopefully they can return in May, a full year after I imagined.

I had the surgery 2-19-2020, one of the last elective surgeries for the hospital, and already the hospital was in preparation mode for what was coming... What is so maddening is WE KNEW. Just like the 1-9-2021 Insurrection, WE KNEW.

The only thing we did not know, that we could not have known, is how maliciously and murderously the response would be botched. What Joe Biden is doing now is what I thought our country would be doing then. I expected Trump would let the CDC and other agencies do their jobs, not cripple them.

If there is a Hell, Trump and Jared Kushner and all the other bloody-handed enablers belong there. If there is Karma, they will all come back as cockroaches and sewer rats.
