We Desperately Need Help! (But Not From You)

Mommy is drawn inside of the Ghost Buster symbol

My county was so desperate for poll workers that they put out appeals on the news and on Facebook.  Civic minded me thought that I would volunteer.  After talking to a representative from the Board of Elections, I found out that the job is a 14 hour shift.  No wonder they are having trouble finding people able to work.  There is no way I could put in a day that long.

It is disappointing how many things  I am unqualified to do.

Go away. I'm sleeping.

How about napping for 14 hours? 

I bet you could do that.


My boys are still running amok, unsupervised, in the local museum.  Are there any museums open right now?  Ours show no signs of it.

What I Did Today (No Good Deed)

I voted

Like millions of Americans, I went to the polls and voted.  At the sign in table was a pile of little “I Voted” stickers.  I asked if I could have one, then happily brought it home after my task was complete….happily until I watched the news, that is.  On the plus side, voter turn out is higher for a midterm election than possibly any year before.  On the minus side, the news had to do a story about municipalities refusing to offer stickers because of the tremendous cost to the budget.

Thanks for sucking the fun out of my sticker.

(In case you were wondering, Bitey and Toby did go along with me to the polls.  They weren’t the only dogs to show up either.  Did they vote Repawblican or Dogmacrat?  They didn’t tell.  Dogs are good at keeping their secrets.)
