And it all comes down to now.....

This is going to be brief.

Things have come to head here in our house. I am sure much of it is built upon the pre-election angst that has my tummy in knots and my mind spinning. But there is quite a bit that is not election-related, and it is all coming to a tense crescendo. Now.

I have been hanging on for a while, going through the motions, isolating myself, not answering my phone, not returning my voicemails, not replying to emails.....I haven't mailed my family pics of the kids in months. Literally months. I went out on Halloween without my camera. Which is unheard of - I carry a camera in my purse 24-7. And I did not take a single photo of my own sweet darlings in their halloween costumes, because...because..... well. I don't know. Another symptom of what is going on in my life, in my head.

So basically, to summarize. Do. Not. Panic. Things are fine. No one is ill. I am not needing new meds. But I am needing to make some priorities, and see them through. I am needing to get a grip. To verbalize what I feel in my heart, and know in my head.

Sometimes, everything is not as it appears. In a campaign, in a family, in any given situation. Even the very sweetest person you know can be a real asshole at times. It is almost impossible to know the whole story. So I am not even going to try to tell it.

Do me and everyone else a huge favor, and vote tomorrow. It is the one thing you have complete control over. Enjoy.
