Day 4

....and nothing much to post today.

Obama has been re-elected for another 4 years as President of the United States. I shouldn't be, but still am, amazed by the amount of vitriol I have heard spewed today on this topic. I actually wished I hadn't picked Corwin up from school as a walker today, because some of the other moms' conversation while we were standing at the corner waiting for the kids disgusted me. They couldn't find a single nice thing to say, and managed to make me feel dirty for even being there. I briefly debated saying something, but decided nothing good would come of it and just stood by with my mouth shut. I've been lumped in with other Obama supporters and called a "blind idiot" on Facebook. I will admit to not understanding how Romney's supporters can think the way they do, but I don't talk about them using language like that. It really is hurtful, even when not aimed at me, individually, and even when it's just overheard.

I really, really hate that our country has gotten so polarized.

I'm still sick -- scratchy throat all day (mitigated somewhat by regular doses of Tylenol), hoarse voice, and I'm starting to have a "productive" cough. I seem to have mostly missed the usual "congestion" part of whatever-this-cold-is, though, so we'll have to see if my luck holds on that front. I picked up Corwin's antibiotic today and got him started on that tonight. And he got a (sorely needed) haircut this afternoon, too.

Ian has well and truly discovered the word "no." Tonight he was adamant that he did NOT want a rag in bed with him, but then as soon as I left the room without giving him one, he started fussing about how he wanted a rag. That was over half an hour ago, and he's still fussing. Ugh.
