". . . little shall I grace my cause

In speaking for myself. Yet, by your gracious patience,

I will a round unvarnish'd tale deliver . . ."

(William Shakespeare's Othello, I.iii.88-90)

Moving On

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.)

Did you hear that they're going to replace the national anthem? Here's the new version.

Oops, sorry. I'm supposed to be a good friend and HELP you, not make things worse! Argh!

Oh good, I'm not the only one who has to get dressed while the kids have an after lunch recess!
