I Voted!

For Obama. My idealistic side won out.

I was really sleepy when I got up early for Lucila, more than usual, and indeed, I didn't wake up when she opened and shut the sliding glass doors as usual. She had to call my name to wake me up when she was ready to leave.

Then Luke and I went to vote. The odd thing was that there were no people with signs outside. I'm pretty sure I've seen them at primaries before, but it's been 29F, so maybe it was too cold. There were more people staffing the poll, but not more people voting than usual. We were supposed to get flurries today but instead we got sleet, which made ice on the roads. Fortunately, we were home just as the sleet started, but the news says the streets are iced all over the area.

Even with the heat up in the van, I was cold enough to want something hot when we got home and I had the orecchiette pasta from Bertolli. Almost all my protein for the day, but I like it and it made me warm.
