A HEADACHE, A STUDY AND A VOTING BOOTH
I woke up at 2 a.m. with a terrible headache. I sat up for a little while and then turned over and went to sleep. At 4 a.m. I woke up again and the headache was worse. I moved my pillows and laid down again. By 5 a.m. it was raging. I guess it didn't like being ignored. So I got up, took some aspirin, and sat up on the sofa with my head in my hands. To take my mind off of the pain, I watched my movie of the day. Today it was Hitched For The Holidays.
It was another cute Hallmark movie. They are mindless romances which I usually don't like or even watch at any other time of the year. Somehow I end up watching all of them this time of the year. Go figure.
By the time the movie was over my headache was gone. Then I got myself together for Bible study. There is only one more week of study in Galatians and then we take a break until March. It's just too hard to get together in the ice and snow, not to mention the holidays. It's tough, too, to get going at 8 a.m. and then work until 8 p.m. Next year will be easier since I won't have to run off to a job. In fact, I am thinking of making it later -- 10 a.m. start time instead of 9 a.m. I have had some ladies tell me that they would come if it was a later time frame. And, of course, I can't do that now because of my job.
After I left I passed by the Recreation Center where I vote. It wasn't busy, so I ran in there and voted. Unfortunately (like always) everyone I voted for lost.
I then went back to the car, took Debbie to the bus stop, ran home and got myself ready for work.
The library is one of the local polling places so it was busier than usual. People coming in all day to vote. The kids were off from school today and were extra -- uh -- energetic? They were all over the place, noisy, and so rude. Like I told Bob today I really don't want to leave my job since I love it and I love the people I work with. But I just can't take the kids anymore.
I didn't have time for either breakfast or lunch (just had snacks) so I was really hungry for dinner. Since it was a late night, I had an easy dinner of burgers and fries. But boy did it taste good!
And now it is time for bed. Another busy day tomorrow. I took the day off from work. In the morning I am taking Joe to a doctor's appointment. After that we are going to visit my aunt. The place where she is living is having a Christmas bazaar and since I haven't seen her in so long I thought I would support the community and make a visit at the same time. Then in the afternoon I am going to try to do some housework. It all depends on my energy level. It was pretty good today so I hope it is tomorrow too. But it won't be unless I get some sleep. See you tomorrow.
