We've been transfixed the last twenty-four hours watching the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy; how weird it feels to be on the other side of a tropical system.  Here it's strangely clear and beautiful...and a bit chilly.  Yesterday, my day off, I went to early vote.  I waited nearly an hour and I was so glad I grabbed a sweater before I walked out the door...unfortunately it was covered in pet hair (so I was that person in line).  Further disappointment, was when I didn't realize an hour wait, standing in line would wear me out for the entire day.  Sometimes, I forget it's only been a year and half since I went through radiation treatment and I try to behave like any other 30 something year old.  C fussed at me when I got home...why didn't I sit down, tell someone...I don't think I realized, myself, until I poured myself back in the car to go home.

Back home, I had planned a lot of "to do's"...lots to make for the shop, clean the house so it looks as good as everyone else's in their blogs, fix an amazing dinner...none of this happen.  I went straight to bed with a persistent headache and snuggled under a warm couple of quilts, joined through out the day by at least two dogs and two cats who peacefully slumbered while I treated myself to a couple foreign films on Netflix and perused the Craftsy online class catalog .  Sometimes I have to remind myself to step back because fortunately even though I'm healthy, I don't always have the stamina but I do have tomorrow.
