Go read this. I doubt she'll either step down or be pushed out, but that there is another example of why the Sarah Palin pick was a disaster for women, win or lose. I will be watching the VP debate tonight, armed and ready, but I'm starting to wonder what the point of these things is.
The truth is, I'm starting to feel the way I did at the end of the 2000 election - exhausted, and ready for a break.
But maybe the exhaution is a result of the 5 projects I have on my plate and the fact that I've been woken at 5 AM at least twice this week. I need my sleep.
We have a wedding to go to on Saturday. I love these people, but if I never go to another wedding it will be too soon. I'm in my 40s, my best friends have all married, some are divorced, and a few have married again. I just can't get excited about it, anymore. The wedding is 3 hours away. We were going to stay overnight and use it as an excuse to stay in a hotel, but all the hotels in the area are over $200 a night, some of them have 2 night minimums, and most have really crappy reviews. We may just drive home.
I lost my cushy parking space in the garage right under my cube this summer when the senior person I shared it with gave it up. She's only in the office 2 days a week, travels a lot anyway, so she had little use for it, and I went back to the end of the line. I did get a space at the end of the street - a 10 block walk from the office. I'm sure that it will suck in the winter time, but for now, I'm hapy to have the reason to walk twice a day.
I've been working on a series of stories that have nothing to do with politics, adoption, or day to day events. I've also been thinking a lot about a blog more related to what I do for a living. I'm spread a little too thin these days and need to adjust my focus. I might just get to Blogher Boston. Woohoo!
