I don’t know about you all but I was so ready for the weekend to come this week, like around Wednesday.
And because it is still Election season, and even worse it’s this miserable, awful, horrible, no good, very bad, Election season, that desire to have the weekend come is even greater. I say this even though I know nothing awaits me during the weekend except more work. (Someone, quick! Build me a time machine so I don’t decide politics is a good idea for a career. Please. I will pay you in bread. Or gum. Your choice). But hey, wishing for the weekend means we are getting closer to all of this being over and to that, I say we cheers some pumpkin spice lattes.
Because seriously, has there ever been an election that we want to end more than this one? I feel like we’ve all been a part of a slow motion 15 car pile up and every day another car slams into the mess. Please, let it end, America (and probably the rest of the world) is saying in 1 large Greek chorus in the back ground of every debate/ad/mailer/talking head that won’t stop talking.
But, in other non-depressing news, it’s Halloween. Which basically means nothing to me since I’m old and married and no longer pretend to make an effort to find a clever/cute/kinda sexy but not too sexy costume. But, it does mean that other non-childless people dress up their children and I’m all for seeing that cuteness. Anyone have exciting plans?
To send you all into the weekend with some thoughts that don’t involve anything political, I’m sharing some fun stuff I’ve seen around the web from the past few weeks. Hope you enjoy!
