1. Carrie is being induced at 8 a.m. on Friday! I feel like doing a new-aunt dance.
2. I quit NaNoWriMo two days in. I know, that's pathetic. But 1,600 words a day is so, so, so much more than I was thinking, especially with no plot idea. I tried to wing it, writing "what I know" as everyone always advises, and that got me to about 950 (after three writing sessions), and I couldn't think of anything else, so I canned it. Next year I will plan ahead and finish so I can check it off my list.
3. Thank you to everyone who endured terrible lines to vote early (most notably Lib, with a four-hour-10-minute wait on Friday), because today we were in and out in five minutes! A worker told us that 80 percent of our precinct had voted early. Now I can't wait to curl up with Matthew and a bowl of chili and watch the results come in. And we can all be happy tonight, because if I may say so, no matter who wins, it will be a big improvement.
