How to write a post in ten minutes

I got woken up at 4:30 this morning.  (Thanks son.)

I am flying solo until Keen comes home from his business trip.

I totally need a facial.  (This is unrelated to the above two statements.)

I thought Chance might have chickenpox despite his vaccination against it.  (The word "vaccination" always makes me think of pets.  Note to self: start saying "immunization".)  Instead, after yet another day home from school and a trip to the doctor, he had a chickenpox-looking viral rash.  Woot! 

I am totally planning on voting early.  None of you really need to know that, I'm just excited.  The excitement comes from both this election and the efficiency of early voting.  Efficacy of process just gets me a little hot.  What?

I have been totally revved up over politics this election, yet I kind of resent that they are distracting me from Halloween.  Because I love Halloween!  SO... this week will be devoted to HORROR!  Bwa ha ha!  (Warning: horror may include politics.)

And so I leave you with this...

Can you spot the Chupacabra?

I was up nearly that early as well. Except it was the cat waking me up instead of a child. 25lbs of cat sitting on your chest doesn't make for comfortable sleeping conditions.

Bring on the horror!

"Efficacy of process just gets me a little hot" now that is a quote worth repeating. Efficiently of course.

Anyhow, bring on the horror woman, even the political kind. I need a good scare in my life.

I LOVE that you "clarified" how your third point was unrelated to the previous two!

As this election season finally started to wind down, I had this thought I'd wait until Election Day to vote, totally being part of the official day we make a big change. Then I read an article about how I could vote early, and so, assuming it will be a big voting turnout day, I went and cast my vote this past Saturday. I stood there in the little barrier booth and kind of held onto my ballot after I marked my vote and really thought about the difference that's ahead of us, and I don't remember ever feeling like that any other time I'd voted for president before. Pretty awesome.

And yep, pretty damn efficient!


I already votes, so for me it's already all about Halloween. I, however, still haven't figured out what I'll dress up as.


I can't tell the difference between horror and politics these days.

Wow, feisty little booger.

Glad Chance isn't facing chicken pox. I would have been happy to miss that childhood milestone.


That is one scary dog! It's always the smallest dogs that are the most aggressive--I guess because they have to be! You may know this, but the breed that bites the most people in the U.S., annually, is the poodle!
