I thought the day would never come.
For TWO *$&@#& YEARS, the presidential campaign seemed like it would never end.
And tomorrow (or, possibly, very early Wednesday) it finally will! What better cause for celebration?!
No matter who you support, surely we can all agree that this one was a marathon, not a sprint. I voted early, so my role is done; my choice, made. If only that meant the ad assault ended, too!
Ah, well. At least I have TiVo to get me through.
Besides putting together a festive meal for Tuesday night, I'm also planning to try out a few more Thanksgiving side dishes. It's true that said dishes are rich and often expensive, but I reduce the hit by halving the recipes for my test runs. Also, I do use lower-fat dairy products when possible to shave off calories for everyday meals.
We're also exercising more these days, which should help us build a little more calorie-burning muscle so we can maintain our weights.
Let the fun (and the end) begin!
