I’ve been an Independent voter for as long as I’ve been voting. I come from a long line of Independents ….well, ok, my parents emigrated to the US from Canada before I was born, and I don’t know what party they were affiliated with in Canada…but they were Independents here. So I have to assume they always were like that – and potentially their parents, and so on. (well, maybe not my Mother’s family who actually lived in America before the War of Independence and moved to Canada when it started. I don’t think they were Independents…apparently they were something else. And we won’t talk about that).
So anyway, I’ve always been a staunch Independent. Until today. Today I registered with a party to vote in the primary election (you can do it at the time you vote in NJ if you haven’t registered with a party). And I voted. I’m not going to say what party, or who I voted for because I was raised to just not get into that with people – so I don’t ask anyone, and I don’t tell (no politics, no religion, no acrylic good or bad?). OK, well, I asked my husband. And I would ask my children if they weren’t slackers and voted (kids – you can find out how to register here). Anyway, this election I felt strongly enough to want to have a voice as far as what candidate would be running. I really wish there was a Fibertarian party….I think its time for a shake up – both parties suck and I really feel like I’m just picking the lesser of two evils! Anyway, now we have to wait to see who will be running. I’m already tired of the whole thing and it’s only February.
I went for an ultrasound today to see what is going on – of course I’m completely paranoid about it (it seemed to take a long time!)…(he seemed to focus on one area!)….but I won’t find out until the end of the week at the earliest. Of course, I asked the tech. And of course, he said he couldn’t tell me. The good news is that I stopped looking at WebMd….(although I think that there is nothing wrong with self-diagnosis and I’m sure doctors appreciate patients who already know what they have – saves time, don’t you think?)
I’m just about done with my second Nutkins…I think I’ll have it done tonight. And then it is back to Gust all the time. I did see Larry’s Cobblestone in the knitting basket today…and I have to admit – I felt a twinge of guilt. Maybe after Gust….
Guess who went to the groomer’s today?
Have a good middle of the week!
