Sonofabitchingsinusinfection! I have spent the last seven days feeling like....... well, I won't tell you what I really feel like saying.
Have you ever coughed so much and so hard that you pull a muscle in your ribcage area? Give yourself a massive headache? Feel like you've done a million sit ups? Consider drinking any and every alcoholic beverage that you can think of in hope that it numbs the constant itch in the back of your throat?
And such a lousy blogger I be. Even skipping out on the easy Friday Fantasy posts. Pathetic.
Tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow will be Thanksgiving. Wouldn't it be lovely to write a thoughtful post about all the things I am thankful for? Yes. It would. But I highly doubt that it is going to happen. But (Lord willing) I will get my sickly ass out of the bed in the morning and make some really awesome potatoes au gratin to take to my Nanny Ruby's house for dinner. Pop my antibiotic, make myself presentable, and rock this Thanksgiving like a Pilgrim!
I have always felt special when there is an election on my birthday. But this election and this birthday is different. It's a very important election (birth)day. One that could change the entire course of the future. To be honest with you, it's making me very nervous. Not the whole getting a year older thing. As you should already know, that doesn't bother me at all.
It's the presidential election that has me worried. Such a pivotal moment for this country. And at a time when so many of our citizens are sifting through the rubble of one of the worst storms in history. At such a crucial time in America's history, I believe that the country is divided between voting for social issues and voting for economic and political issues. Even worse than the scattered mind-set is the corrupt and deceiving media that is feeding the population confusing lies from every angle. What is this country coming to?
I'm voting for Mitt Romney. I know that many of you aren't, but I respect everyone's right to decide. I didn't vote for Obama last time, and I'm not going to vote for him this time, either. He hasn't stepped up to the plate for this country. He hasn't brought hope or positive change. It's time to try another route.
Whatever happens on this election day, I pray that it is the best thing for this country. America needs better leadership. I think that is something that we can all agree on, regardless of who you vote for.
Happy November 6th, everyone. May God have mercy on America.
A random fantasy for Friday/Saturday.
I have adored this guy's look from the moment I ran across the top pic many moons ago. I don't even remember where it came from. But I still dig it.
I found the watch on Pinterest last week and I think it's one of the coolest things I have ever seen. A wooden watch. I am a watch person. And this watch is begging to be on my wrist.
And how great is that last shot? Hot apple cider and pumpkin spice doughnuts. (at least, that's what I'm pretending it is.) There are always masses of amazing things over on Modern Hepburn, where this pic came from.
I hope you have a fabulous weekend.
Hugs and Warmth to You.
P.S. This post was scheduled to be posted on Friday....but blogger failed to follow through. Happy Saturday all.
