Post-Election Life

 It's odd to have no political stress left. My mind keeps hunting around to find something to worry about. Right now I'm worrying about the Georgia run-off. Surely there must be something we need to be doing about that? Somewhere we can donate? (Nicole & Maggie, anything?)

Meanwhile, I have kept this from you because it is so bizarre, but I took up crocheting during the last weeks before the election, as stress-relief tactic. I am crocheting my kid a huge blanket and today I crocheted my first hat. (Photos later!)

This is just not like me. But it's more effective than fidget spinners, at least for me.

I'm also reading less. I don't know if that is good or bad. I was going through a book a day, sometimes more, when things were at their worst. Now I'm back to a book every two days or so.

Trying to stop eating so much sugar, as well. More grapes, fewer chocolate Payday bars.

And Dr. Skull went back to work today -- I'm fretting that he went back too soon, though his foot is nearly healed.

The kid's boyfriend is flying in from PA on Friday. He was supposed to come live with the kid last March, but then Covid hit. As he said today on his twitter feed, ironically it would have been safer to fly then than it is now. 230,000 Americans dead so far.

How's post-election life where you are?

Absolutely, you can donate directly to Ossoff and Warnock, and you can donate to Stacy Abram's Fair Fight organization.

There will also be post-cards to Georgia voters.
