As I write this, I am enjoying a few moments of silence. I am trying to maintain my sanity during this trip to hang with my family in NC but it is hard for sure. The TV was on almost the entire evening last night. I got away with putting Christmas music on for a little while so that was nice. The TV has been on ALL morning. Thankfully it is the Macy’s T’giving day parade so at least it is tolerable (in comparison to other rather unsavory choices). I cannot count the off color jokes that have been made and the multipe references to how unhappy people are that Obama will be our new president. I even heard one, “He won’t be my president.” What does that mean anyway? Maybe next time I should say something like, “Well, what country are you going to apply to for citizenship?” Hah. Then there’s the cocophany of nerf guns that are going off. They are REALLY loud when you cycle through them. If I have children, I wonder if I will let them play with guns. At this point, I think not.
So the reason it’s just me and my Grandfather here is that my toe has been acting up lately…I think it has been feeling good to the point of my forgetting I still need to be gentle with it. There is also a weird place that I wonder if the incision is doing something strange. I sure hope not. Interesting that I am in the middle of Shane Claiborne’s The Irresistable Revolution and have been reading here. More on that later.
All that said, I am not miserable. I hope everyone out there in the blogosphere is having a great Thanksgiving Day. And for those of you who aren’t, well, I hope it passes quickly.
