I'm seeing five places tomorrow. Cross your fingers that one of them is "the one."

So I was just walking the dogs, and my cheapo flip-flop broke. I had to carry it home and of course ran into the neighbor downstairs whose balcony is right by the door. Crazy glue, don't fail me now!

Hey Jessie, I heard the union utility workers in New Jersey are turning away outside help because they're non-union. Know aything about this?

I hate when that happens. Those cheap flipflops can be so, so comfortable and I sometimes use them around the house -- almost like slippers in a way.

These are strictly dog-walking flip-flops, and the drunken glue job seems to have worked.

Early voting - not so much. I didn't have 4 hours to kill standing in line, so I'll just get up early on Tuesday and vote like I always do.

Now I'm wondering if I can conjure up a few hundred bucks before my appointment today in the event that I have to write a check that wipes out all my cash for a deposit. Probably not, so ramen noodles & cat food for me for awhile!

Going out on a limb and putting Jordy Nelson in my fantasy lineup for now, even though he's still technically questionable. I need to remember to keep an eye on this tomorrow morning though.

Talk to the people. A lot of times you can put a minimal amount down and also give a post-dated check. Tell him/her it's timing is all. Some people are understanding and can work with you. At least maybe then you can upgrade to a better soup and peanut butter and jelly.:)

Yeah, it has happened in a couple of towns. The governor strongly disagrees with this because he has said that we will take all the help that we can get.

I'm safe for now, no final decisions made. I do like one enough to potentially move into, but I want to at least sleep on it and give it a few days to see if anything else pops up.

Good luck. It's probably a good idea you take your time with your decision.

Truly a shame that unions are putting themselves above everyone else. Lives be dammed!

Probably a good idea to check out the neighborhood at various times over a couple of days. Don't want to see you writing Amby because you moved to a new place and now you have to deal with screaming children and a naked fat guy who doesn't own blinds and barking dogs in the middle of the night.

Ugh, I had human centipede nightmares last night thanks to you people.

Must find something more pleasant to think about today.

Me in a speedo with a rose clenched between my teeth.

So much for sleeping in today, I'm an hour behind!

Well, at least that image literally made me laugh out loud! Thank you for that :)

I am being lazy this morning. Been awake since 5 am, but I'm still hanging out in bed watching TV while the boys play with trains in the other room and my husband is at work.

Later today I have to go out to do some election related errands and check in on some neighbors who are still without power. The boys can keep my grandmother company while I do that.

I am so frustrated with Romney's campaign. They keep shooting themselves in the foot. I got a robocall yesterday for a moneybomb for the campaign. When I zeroed out, the person who answered (who I know is just a volunteer) said that they have no control over where the calls are going. Someone does, though, and those calls should not be going to Jersey right now.
