I was exhausted. Waking up at o'dark thirty to vote and then staying up until almost 1:00 a.m. to watch speeches and commentary had taken its toll. I collapsed into bed last night at about 9:00 p.m. and got a good 8 hours. I'm feeling better and the events over the past 48 hours have sunk in.
President-elect Barack Obama.
That is serious.
Like Barack, I am preparing for my new job. I'm looking forward to the experience and I know that I am more than prepared. My current co-workers are all vaklempt but they'll be fine. There are quite a few end-of-fiscal-year loose ends that need to be tied ... just not by me. I'm trying to figure out why the folks in our office up north keep sending me "this needs to be done ASAP" emails. For real? I could care less. Incompetence on your part does not translate to an emergency on my part.
The day is totally gray. Cold, windy and scattered showers. Days like this I just want to hang out in the house. I'm getting some great recipe ideas from Tam's kitchen. Ya'll should check it out. This time of year I really like comfort food and last night I made a meatloaf that was fantastic. I know what you're thinking: "Meatloaf? What's so special about that?" I know, right. But the fact is the last time I made a meatloaf was about 20 years ago and it sucked so I never tried it again. Last night, it was perfect. Little victories, my friends, little victories.
Enjoy the day!
