February 28, 2017 Night

Good evening! Sitting in bed watching Trump’s address to the nation. I’d sit outside but it’s starting to rain and I’m interested in what the president is talking about and his policies. I constantly watch Trump and while I disagree with many but not all of his policies, I do find something so interesting and attractive about the man. I even considered voting for him, until I decided on Jill Stein as my candidate for president. It would have been neat though had Hillary been elected our first woman president. 

Feeling somewhat better now after taking some sinus medication and a good dinner. Earlier though I was super congested with a headache and a sore face. This sinus medication I got from Shoprite works great.
