I’m in NJ! I’m wearing a gorgeous new coat/sweater Jenny made (it’s lovely when I get here, not only do I get Jenny but an armful of gorgeous crocheted goodness). It’s freezing cold outside (from some reason I thought it was going to be warmer) but the house is snug and I had a magnificent night of sleep. I sleep so well here it’s amazing. Part of it is the memory foam mattress, but I think the main part is just being here. there was a cartoon or a card or a t-shirt that said something about “true friends are when you go to visit them you both nap.” So true.
We spent most of yesterday talking about the election. At this point I won’t talk about it here – people are worked up, friendships are being lost, etc. That doesn’t mean I’m not going to speak up, more than I ever have before (the very foundations of the earth tremble at the thought) but if we all need to vent some more (me included) I’ll do another post and we can keep it there.
So. I’m a little behind on NaNoWriMo but I’ve still got … I think 18k words, so that’s excellent. Tim is going off the rails again, but at this point there’s nothing we can do about it but talk to the mental health people out there and hope for the best. While I’m down here we’re going to watch movies and crochet and go to the laundromat (if I have to drag Jenny kicking and screaming) and the eye doctor and talk and watch movies and crochet. It’s gonna be bliss.
I also have to get my NaNoWriMo words in each day, but I’m determined. I can do it.
I was gonna ask what’s on your agenda, but last week has had such a huge impact that I’m thinking that some of us do need to talk about it. And really, I’ve pretty much told you my stance – I’m not going to run, I’m going to stay and speak out. In fact, I should have talked about it last week so we could all talk about it, but I was too disheartened.
So. What’s your agenda? If it’s straightforward then tell us about it. If last week … (I want to go off into a side rant on “had an impact” and “impacted by” because I don’t like impacted by and it’s incorrect but it still feels like the right way to put it) if last week is making a difference in how you view this week, then talk about it.
And for those of you who really can’t bear to read another word about the situation, just skip this week if it gets political and come back next monday (or during the week – I’ll be talking about what Jenny and I are doing).
So … what’s on your agenda?
