I’m posting late today! Which would’ve been disappointing. I haven’t missed posting a single day this year, so far. Today was hard because I’ve been on the go since early this morning.
First, I had to get kids out the door to school, then the adults in the house hit our polling place to vote. I was the first voter on the list! I hate election days. I always start with such hope then the day drags on and on… I hope you all did your civic duty, too!
After voting, I headed to the Art Center because I was on tap to open the doors and be there if anyone wanted to see our current exhibit. No takers, but I did a little editing until friends showed up and then there was conversation—mostly about what we’re doing for a holiday display. After they left, a writer friend called and we talked about “writerly” things until I closed the doors. I’m usually such a hermit, so today just wiped me out. Introverts get drained by human interaction, if you didn’t know. Still, it’s good for me to get out in the world every now and then.
Back at home, I stayed glued to the news as long as I could stand it. I promised myself I wouldn’t let whatever happens affect me, but it’s sooooo hard. Too many important issues are on the line to be complacent. World-altering things. Enough. I have to push it out of my mind. I did my part.
Tomorrow, I’ll be back at my desk. Tons of edits to plow through. A book to start. A rabbit cage to clean. Poor old Oreo needs fresh bedding and clean quarters! Maybe I’ll tackle the catbox, too. See? My life is exciting. 🙂
Sleep well, friends.
P.S. The 13-year-old saw my blog and decided I needed to share Oreo’s picture. And she wants credit for the photo! That’s my girl!
