How many days untilΒ we forget this nightmare election ever happened and the internet goes back to useless memes that aren’t politically charged??? I’ll give you all a couple of days, 11 max, to get all of the Donald & Hillz memes you have left out of the way. Then, I want puppies & people tripping over stuff.

    I am SO VERY glad this entire circus is DONE! Now, back to your regularly scheduled program. I REALLY don’t like politics and in a way, I’m glad that a non-politician is going to running the show for the next 4 years. I’ve thought for many, many years we needed a business person (male or female) to get the job done. Now, move on everyone!! ^_^
