And I thought Obama was hard on immigration. Actually, he was. Too hard for me. I was always on him about that. He always talked about empathy, and I believe he has empathy (which is rare for a politician), but he didn’t have much empathy for immigrants. The only reason I believe Trump went tougher on immigration is because he doesn’t want to continue anything Obama did so he HAD to go tougher and separate children from their parents.
Obama kept parents and kids together in so-called detention centers. He deported a ton of people. More than George W. Bush. I used to know the exact number. I could just search for it. But you get my point. I wonder why Obama hasn’t spoken out much about Trump’s immigration policies? Hmmmm. I know why. To give him a little credit, he did start DACA.
I had to redo my tarot website (temporarily linked above and below). ::cries:: Okay, it wasn’t that bad. It took me less than 2 hours. I only redid it because I hated how it showed up on my phone. Who looks at websites on their phone? Apparently, a lot of people. I rarely do that. I still don’t love the services page on my phone, but everything else is okay.
If anyone has read my blog on my tarot website…um, I hate it too. ROFL. I’m just beginning! They will get better over time. I had fun doing Cancer’s reading. However, that’s not the point. The point is that my readings don’t flow well. Maybe my mentor can help me with that? I hope so!
Overall, I don’t like the business look of the site. It is supposed to be a spiritual site yet, it looks more like a website for a lawyer or something corporate. It will do for now. I think it is decent for a beginner. I’ve done a few websites before, but none for a business.
UPDATE: I changed the main color on my website to my favorite color: purple! I like it so much better. It is less business-like.
UPDATE part 2: I finally have the store set up on my website! Woohoo!
Therapist: How did you meet your husband?
Okay, I didn’t laugh at her. I just said, “I’m not married. I never have been”. Ugh. How could she think I was married? Would a therapist I saw in 3D (versus video) know that? We’ve had 3 sessions together. I don’t like meeting with her during the week. I’m tired from working all day, and the last thing I want to do is talk. I enjoyed the Sunday sessions much better.
She also asked me if I wanted to meet someone after I told her I wasn’t married. I said, “no.” Lol. I should have said, “Hell, no.” Please! Too funny.
I didn’t mention that on my Getaway weekend, I went to Shenandoah National Park! So cool. But it was so terrifying driving on those roads up the mountain. I was so scared. I’ve been driving for a long time. I drive on unfamiliar roads all the time. I have never experienced anything like this. I would like to say I’m going back because we (my dog and I) only spent an hour there, but I’m too scared to drive on those roads again.
We did a trail at Shenandoah described as “easy”. I showed up with my dog and these other hikers, mostly with non-American accents, were getting ready to hike the trail. They had on hiking boots and lots of gear. And here I am with tennis shoes with holes in them and a big ass camera. LOL. We walked the trail until I saw a snake. I waited for 2 minutes for the snake to move over to the side. Uh, it kept going up the trail! I’m 99% sure the snake wasn’t poisonous, but I didn’t know how my dog would react, so we headed back down.
In the end, I was glad the snake stopped us because it took forever to get back. I hadn’t realized how far we had gone because I was walking so fast to try to get out of the way of the real hikers. Anyhow, I hadn’t planned to go to Shenandoah, so that was nice.

Plans for the weekend: Busy weekend. I’m working 5 hours on Saturday. On Sunday, I’m going grocery shopping. I will probably work many hours on my tarot website and on an astrology course I started. I also need to find time to mow the lawn. Blah. I want to go back to my Getaway. Reading in bed for two days was so nice. The good old days.
I’m off on Monday. I will probably offer to do free tarot readings on Facebook on Sunday and then I can do them on Monday morning. Scary, but I have to do it. I need the practice.
Thanks for reading. Have a wonderful weekend! 🙂
