TMP — I Am So Not Peeved

Every Monday, Paula Light, with her The Monday Peeve prompt, gives us an opportunity to vent or rant about something that pisses us off.

My peeve today is about, well, nothing. In fact, I’m feeling very upbeat today. Unusually upbeat, actually. It’s a beautiful, cool, crisp, autumn day. Around 60°F, not a cloud in the sky, and just a whisper of a breeze.

We got some desperately need rain this past week. The “big red wave” that the Republicans expected in the midterm elections never materialized and the Democrats maintained a sliver of a majority in the Senate. And, all things considered, the Dems suffered only relatively small losses in the House. So Democracy in the U.S. lives on, for the time being, at least.

The Ukrainians are surprisingly embarrassing Vladimir Putin and the big, bad Russian military on the battlefield. And we had a great week and a delightful weekend with our houseguests. Even the stock market was way up last week.

So I have nothing to grouse about this week. I am not pissed off. I am not peeved in any way. I will bask in this glorious day, for who knows what craziness and chaos tomorrow may bring.

    I heard a longtime strategist, tonight, say that the Speaker of the House could be someone who isn’t in the a House (after the new Congress is sworn in); less than 118 isn’t significant power.
