My daughter-in-law’s surgery went fine and she is back home loopy on meds, so I’m still doing the chauffering for her. It was about 8pm last night that Michael brought her home, so I had Samantha asleep and Olivia at least in her room — I felt like a real Mama. Samantha gets out of pre-school at noon, so I’ll just say “hey” and get back to work…
I’m glad the election is finally over, but it won’t stop the incessant roar of anger in this country. I continue to avoid watching cable news, facebook, and twitter, though facebook, for me, seems the mildest of the three. Facebook just hasn’t been showing me much more than ads until recently when folks (and their cute kids) started popping up–finally a reason to hit the like button..! Believe me, a person can stay informed without the shrill and shriek of the talking heads manipulating and triggering emotions…
Casey is out putting some cages around the rose bushes. There are some tall canes that I fear will be destroyed by winter snows. Our first “snowfall” is predicted for next week…the kind that melts by noon…but we’ll be ready for anything.
Getting up early and getting out of the hou-hou-house seems like such a new/old experience. Out there in the early morning with the school buses sends me back in time when I had places to go and things to do…and stress out the wazoo. I’m glad I can help the kids out and take a little of the stress off of them. Soon enough I’ll be back here with plenty of time to write.

The election is thankfully over–I’m with you on that one. Hoping the raucousness of recounts doesn’t ruin the first stirrings of winter. Our first inch of snow is predicted for tomorrow!
