Today has been one of the worst days in a while.

I could elaborate, but my brain really isn't working because of some pills I took to sleep last night.

I've alternated between sleeping and crying most of the day.

And an hour ago my tablet had an update. I stupidly allowed it to install said update and it decided to refuse to boot afterward. So I'm doing the second factory reset in the two months I've owned the damned thing.

I am glad that the policy of separating families at the border will be reversed. Thats one of the things I was worrying about while note sleeping. But if I'm expected to be grateful to Trump for his executive order when it was a policy he inacted that caused the problem, that isn't going to happen.

I am awake at 5 in the morning. Most people would call that early, but as I've failed to get to sleep yet, it's actually late. I could barely keep my eyes open all day, so I have no idea what's going on.

If I were a Methodist, I'd be livid at Sessions for his representation of my church, and apparently I wouldn't be alone.

These are the sights I missed out on by being allergic to the sun, heat intolerant, and generally out of shape these days. And let's toss allergic to plants in there because I'm pretty sure that's why I've been sleeping 14 hours a day or more all week. (Seriously. I only slept from 10 to 10 last night and am thrilled with extra awake time, although my brain is still too mushy to do anything with it.) I'm super glad to have family members who can go take pictures for me though, and am super grateful to once again live somewhere this is possible summer behavior.
Spent Father's Day skiing with my son in the Mount Baker area!

I was hoping the road would be open to Austin Pass, but they stopped us at the ski resort lot, which added a half-mile of easy skinning each way. We traversed around Bagley Lake under Table Mountain, then up to the saddle between Mazama Dome and Table Mountain. The intent was originally to ski down to Iceberg Lake, but the high temperatures (70+ degrees!) and constant sun were giving me heat exhaustion, so we chilled out and returned the way we came.

The snow was outstanding. Suncups and runnels galore, but soft enough you could generally ignore them. Skinning was a different story, where the soft snow often gave way on steeper traverses... Twice I just shrugged and booted straight up, because my skis just couldn't hold an edge.

Ran into another pair of skiers, lunching the same place we did. Also saw two fun loving adventurers jumping off Table Mountain and parachuting into the valley.

Witnessed one avalanche, and a few signs of other recent ones. None large, just wet slides that degraded into a bunch of ice chunks rolling to the lake. High temperatures are expected to stay through the week, so it might melt out quick up there.

Everyone figured that Trotz would be unfirable after winning the Stanely Cup. No one talked about whether he'd resign.

This is really high up on the evilness scale.

My boy is looking an awful lot like his dad these days.
