Confession

I… did not vote yesterday. But before you get all uppity, let me say this: I was a responsible citizen and still performed my civic duty. What’s that, you say? Well, first of all, I was completely and entirely uneducated about this election, the candidates, and… well, everything. So I thought it was responsible of me to not vote, since picking all the names that “sound pretty” isn’t very purposeful. Secondly, I walked all the way to the polling place with Nikki and vouched for her so she could be a registered voter and vote herself. That was my civic duty.

And then I walked all the way to the co-op, restocked my pantry (a bit), made myself dinner, read the second half of a really long and boring chapter on the Cold War (sounds interesting, but it wasn’t), watched the Jim Carrey Andy Kaufman movie, cleaned (not much), finished crocheting a scarf and another square for my blanket, and…. changed the kitty litter. I took out the recycling too. I know, such an exciting time.

I am tired today because at about quarter-to-midnight, I had a revelation that brought me great peace and required that I journal about it (in an actual paper journal with a pen – so last century, I know), so I was up later than I should have been. I was almost late to class this morning.

Now I just have to figure out how to get everything done that I need/want to in the time I have. I need to go to Walgreens and pick up a refill (and perhaps some decongestant), but I’d also like to go to JoAnn and look at their yarn selection for some projects that are in the cue. There’s church tonight, too, and I have to make dinner or find it somewhere, because it’s just not working for me to eat there. Ooh, Chipotle is just a block away from the church. Maybe I’ll do that. At any rate, I don’t think I’m going to make it to JoAnn, which won’t be the end of the world.

I don’t have to work on Friday, it being a Federal holiday and I work for the government (remember – no mail delivery!). So then I have to figure out if I’m going to Prince Charming’s house after work on Thursday, or if he’s coming to pick me up on Friday after work, or if I’m busing downtown Friday afternoon and then busing out to his house… such drama, I know. Not really a big deal, just… need to make sure I get what needs to get done… done.

Alison’s baby is due in 40 days. !!!!! Thanksgiving plans are nearly cemented. (Huge sigh of relief.)

I have work to do, which is nice for a change of pace, and it’s not immediately pressing, which is also nice. Busy, but not stressed.
