And holy shit, do I ever need it. This election is absolutely soul-killing. I've voted already and I'm officially signing off on the news stories as much as I can. Today was another media headline freakout about emails and a "new investigation OMGELEVENTY!!!" that they had to walk back in a couple of hours, "Oh, wait, it's actually not HER email, but another investigation, and it's three emails that overlap somehow," but it will consume the news cycle for the weekend, and I'm guessing that the FBI Director is on his way to a cushy right wing think tank job when the election is over, because that letter was carefully crafted to hint at a new scandal without actually lying as it could be. And holy crap, I'm so ready to have brunch tomorrow with Winnie the Pooh, and ride roller coasters and basically check out of reality for three days. I was going to bring more connective internet devices. Naah. Fuck that. I'm bringing my phone for basic Disney navigational purposes. I am signing off for the weekend.
I am bringing knitting and my Kindle and an audiobook for the quiet times when the rest of the family is sleeping in, and holy crap KatyaR, thank you for turning me on to the Chronicles of St. Mary's series! I am devouring them like popcorn! They are exactly the kind of smart and imaginative mental break I need right now.
Once again I am ridiculously excited to drive 45 minutes to spend two nights at a resort. It's just what I need.
