the race is over. election season has come to its sad conclusion.
here in the deep blue state of california we all trudged into work this morning, exchanging looks with each other, making comments, in solidarity over our shared sense of loss.
a parent brought me some delicious apples & tasty snacks.
and i flipped through the kids’ sketchbooks. this belongs to a girl who likes cat dresses.
this belongs to another lass from class.
i started to cheer up a bit.
then julie, who likes to record my use of idioms in class, showed me this and i had a nice loud department-store-santa laugh.
wyatt’s tumor is regrowing on his head and that’s got me worried. it’s so close to his eye that i’m not sure there’s any course of action to take except wait and see.
i strongly dislike the animal hospital i usually take him too here in highland park. they always overbook and you end up waiting in a tiny room crammed with dogs and yowling kitties. the vets are rushed and most have lukewarm bedside manner. my neighbor susan has been seeing the same vet since the ’90s and she loves him. i managed to get on his waiting list, but can’t get in until early january. am thinking it will be best to just sit tight and wait rather than rush around getting different opinions and chasing my tail.
i guess that’s what we’ll all be doing in the coming months. sitting tight. trying not to let our dramatic imaginations construct a doomed future.
i’m off to eat a giant oregon apple. see you soon!
