I have no desire to blog. The only thing that keeps me blogging is the friends I have met through blogging, and the fact that my mother-in-law is always telling me how much she likes reading it. I love you, Anita!

This is my own personal Hell Week as we come to the end of campaigning season in this crazy swing state, and our biggest event of the year at work takes place the day after the election. I’m bombarded by campaigning outside of work, and preparing for the event inside.

Today being All Souls Day, I’m thinking a lot about Pa today. I think I’m going to have a Mass said for him, and one for Dee, a little old lady from our parish who “helped” at church on our wedding day. She passed away in September, I think.
Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord
And let perpetual Light shine upon them.
May they and all the faithful departed,
Through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

People don’t Trick or Treat in our neighborhood, so I had a nice quiet evening of sewing on Wednesday. I turned the TV on to the “Classic Country” music station, which I certainly can’t listen to while Brett is home.

I found a flea on Lucy last Saturday, so I had to give her a bath on Sunday. Poor kitty, she didn’t know what hit her. She never had to have a bath before. She was trying to run away, but I closed the shower doors so that she couldn’t. I was very gentle and I used “natural” cat shampoo and medication, so she smelled like cloves for days. I expected that she would cry or try to scratch me. In fact, she didn’t even stay mad at me. Maybe it was because I heated a towel in the dryer and wrapped her in it afterwards. I like wrapping myself up in a warm towel too.

A co-worker said something dumb to me yesterday. She asked me about what I did for Halloween. I said I stayed at home and sewed since no one comes to our house and she said “Oh, you weren’t out running around with your kids?” Um, hello? I didn’t have kids when I started working here, I’ve never been pregnant in my life, and I don’t have kids now. Of course I wasn’t running around with my nonexistent children.

Someone at church said something dumb on Monday, too. She asked me if I had kids and when I frowned and said “Not yet,” she said “Good for you.” I’m sorry, but really? At a Catholic church, no less, and I was frowning, so I obviously didn’t think thatwas the ideal situation. I just don’t get people.
So, I hope none of you will say dumb things to me about children. I can’t take it. What I can take is if you have a good weekend, ok? God bless you.
