A close win

I won my match up last night!  I really didn't think I was going to pull it off, but one of my guys got healthy and the QB threw to him and there ya go!  But it didn't change the standings -- I'm still 8th.  I wonder how much different it would have been had Adrian Peterson been able to play. 

That nasty lady who cut me off and then gave me the finger was at the bus stop last night.  I gave her the evil eye.  She didn't notice.  Maybe it wasn't evil enough.  I stared at her anyway.  She got on a passing bus and went to the next stop to wait.  So, maybe she recognized me after all?  I did send an email about the flooded top floor of the parking garage but it was still there this morning.  Annoying.

I really wanted to run yesterday but my back is still tweak-y and it was raining.  I think I should just wait and start up again next week, unless I am feeling super duper Thursday or Friday.  I don't want to make it worse, you know?

I wanted to block the Brown Eyed Susan last night, but the evening got away from me.  Somebody was supposed to stop by between 6:30 and 7 to talk about setting up a house cleaning schedule, but he never showed up!  And didn't call either.  And considering that I saw Tink sleeping on my last item that was blocked and set to dry on the floor, I think I'd better wait until this weekend.  I'll bring it in to noon knitting tomorrow for show and tell anyway.

I did all the math and set up my vacation days for now through the second week in May.  Now I just have to bite the bullet and actually make my plane reservations for April.  It's six months away, but the latest thing from the travel sites is that you need to make international reservations at least(!) 24 weeks in advance to get the best price.  I've found good prices but I am still not sure of the departure city.  I must put that to the top of my list for this week.

So it's election day today and I am hoping that means that the terrible signs will be gone from the sides of the roads soon.  I have noticed something this time around - the vast majority of political signs are in the Seahawks colors and some even have a little swoop somewhere in the logo that looks suspiciously like a Seahawks logo.  Don't you just hate politics?  One of the signs is different and makes me laugh every time I see it.  The candidate's name is Pedro Celis and his sign says "Vote for Pedro" in large white letters and then his last name and the position underneath.  That is of course a slogan from "Napoleon Dynamite".  Cute.  Now get those signs gone tomorrow!!
