Tuesday, February 5th

Today is Super Tuesday. I did my civic duty this morning and went out and voted in the primary. Edwards was whom I was supporting, but as he dropped out, I ended up voting for Hillary. I like Obama but I think the Clinton camp has a much better chance of weathering the storm that the Republicans are likely preparing for the general election. I think the swiftboating of last cycle will seem timid in comparison to the all out assault that's going to come and I don't see either Obama or especially his wife dealing at all well with it and some major mistakes will be made that would cost the election, especially if McCain is on the other side. But enough about politics.

The house is slowly being restored to sanity, room by room. Boxes are being opened and emptied. The layer of construction dust is being cleaned away. New furniture is in place. With luck, we will be presentable by the end of the month. I'll take some pictures when it no longer looks like a bomb went off in it.

Playing catch up at work. Between business trips, Into the Woods, and the house, I am more than a bit behind on various projects. One thing at a time and I may get some of these piles taken care of.

The flu is in town, big time. I had my shot but I still think I have a low grade case with all the attendant body aches. Enough to make me grouchy but not enough to retire to my bed. I slept a good deal this past weekend and that helped some.
