Do any of y'all feel completely drained after the election? I do and I am already tired of all the post-Election analysis. The bottom line is we're stuck with the results and have to live with it for better or worse. It might require an unholy alliance or two but nobody's gonna see Congress all join hands and sing "Kumbaya" so we'll just have to wait and see.
This "whatever-the-hell-it-is-I've-got" is still very much with me. Sigh.
Yesterday was sorta fun -- Michelle asked if I'd watch Racy Gracie after school and, of course I said yes and had chocolate chunk cookies and milk waiting for her to her delight. She showed me her books and read to me and I was truly impressed because she reads extremely well for a second grader. We watched a Harry Potter movie until mommy came to get her. I enjoyed having her immensely and delight in that Michelle needs my help a few more times. I'm smiling.
When Brice came home, he asked if he could borrow my leaf rake and did my yard as well as theirs. Good stuff!!!! He's not a scholar but he's a hard worker and that will definitely take him a long way in this world. I made a crack about getting old and having to go to a nursing home some day and he said, "I'll visit you every week." I chuckled and he said, "I'm serious -- I've been to nursing homes and those old people get left alone too much -- I'll be there for you!" For fourteen, he's got a great heart.
My neighbor upstairs brought me a HUGE chunk of a really yummy chocolate cheese cake and we discussed getting rid of our neighbor and I told her that Michelle was with us. We're all tired of her and her kids' behavior and think she needs to be reported.
I'm planning to stay away from politics for a while. However, if the idiots do something truly dastardly, I may have to vent in defense of my blood pressure.
I just saw Bill Maher's New Rules from his Friday broadcast and I laughed myself silly. Hope y'all do, too.
Hope y'all are recovering from Election 2010!!!!!!!!
