I set a nice reasonable to-do list for myself last night before going to bed. A couple really necessary errands, physical therapy, and some weeding the boulevard garden.
LOL, of COURSE I was going to wake up feeling like someone's chucking bricks at my spine. Blankets, Star Trek, and opioids it is, then!

Well, now. There's a spark of cunning in the Dem camp after all:
"Advocates are celebrating new legislation released by the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee over the weekend that offers new details about how lawmakers would actually spend some of the transportation dollars included in the Democrats’ $3.5-trillion budget measure — including billions aimed at expanding the mobility of low-income communities without access to cars.
That was a pleasant surprise to transit proponents, who were disappointed by Biden’s promise to the GOP last month that no element of the budget measure, which is expected to pass without Republican support, would restore funding that was cut during Senate negotiations over the Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill — funds which included billions for transit, equity, and more.
And indeed, the T&I committee’s bill technically honors that commitment — by establishing new, highly targeted programs for green mobility, rather than simply increasing allocations to the Federal Transit Administration and other agencies."

Saint Paul PD was NOT invited to our neighborhood party because why on Earth would one do that???
My mother-in-law is telling my kids about how great it was that Woodbury cops handcuffed kids and put them in back of cars as a "fun" event at NNO yesterday, and I'm holding my breath hoping they don't say something awkward because we've had A LOT of talks about cops in this house.
