Just a day and a half to go until I'm up at Lake Texoma!

I've been sitting here thinking about the day of the 2020 election. On that day, I went up to the lake because I didn't want to be in the city in case there was any violence or anything like that. To me, that seemed like a perfectly reasonable decision on my part. The Lakehouse was available. I was off work. Why not?

But a friend of mine actually got mad at me when I said that I was going to do that. He was like, "Not everyone can just go on vacation whenever they feel like it!" It really surprised me that he apparently took it so personally that I had that option. Listen, I know that I'm privileged in many ways. I don't really see any reason why I should have to apologize for that. That's just the way life goes. Just because you can't do something doesn't obligate me to feel bad just because I can.

To me, that makes perfect sense but people are always telling me, "Don't brag about it, you'll make other people feel bad." But what about my right to enjoy life and be happy? Why should I have to sacrifice that?

Anyway, I'll be up at the Lake on Wednesday. I'm looking forward to it!
