Earlier this evening my daughter ran up to me with a huge smile on her face and gave me a Texas-sized bear hug, saying, "You wrote a blog post on something besides politics! I am SO PROUD of you!"
I also turned on The Young and the Restless instead of Fox News or Rush Limbaugh today while I was getting dressed and putting on a little make-up. (Yes, I know Y&R doesn't come on until almost lunchtime. I'm a homeschool mom, remember? I'm too busy to get dressed until lunchtime.)
What I'm not sure of is what my expanding horizons indicate. Am I truly moving on, putting the election behind me? Or am I merely mired in denial, pretending that things are returning to normal when deep down I know that the definition of "normal" has changed forever?
I'll have to get back to you on that one. But judging from this post, I think the answer may be the latter. (In which case you can probably expect more political posts. Sorry, honey.)
