Four Days... And Miles To Go

I'm trying to keep busy. Stay occupied. Keep my mind from idling.

But I'm distracted. Yesterday I left for work without my laptop. Today I walked out of the house without my phone. I keep forgetting where I parked my car.

I've been to the gym 3 times this week (I hadn't been in 8 months). I'll do anything to keep from thinking too much.

I've made sure I have something planned every night. Tonight I'm going to a Halloween party. I'm intent on not saying anything random like, "Happy Halloween. Aren't you excited to vote?" Tomorrow I'm meeting a friend for brunch. That should burn up a few hours. Sunday I'm going scooter riding.

Monday I am worried about. I have no plans. Maybe I'll go to the gym again. But I bet I'll be up all night regardless - staring at the walls, looking out of the windows, idling picking things up and putting them back in the wrong place.

Soon. Soon it will be over. I can't wait to stand in line. Then the real anxiety begins.

You're probably the only other person I know as psyched about Tuesday as I am. The anticipation of it all makes me nervous and giddy all at once. Better than Christmas morning for me! Enjoy the vote. I'm trying to decide how I could occupy the kids for hours and hours so I could sit UNINTERRUPTED in front of MSNBC and eat Obama Busken cookies ... just dreamin'.
