Needed Nano Motivation & Mood

This morning was very strange.  I had no motivation for Nanowrimo.  It was quite odd for me.  It was almost Biblical like how God made the world in 6 days and on the 7th day he rested.  Well, this is the 8th day of Nanowrimo and I’ve been at the novel for the first straight 7 days.  This is the first day, it was almost a chore.  I preferred playing games on FB plus I found a comfy, fleece, pajama, set I’ve been looking for and then tonight I got a bit distracted because my husband decided to start watching a show he knows I like and our t.v. is located right next to the computer.. but somehow thorough it all, I did manage to type out 1400 words today.  I also went outside and took a different picture to become the cover.  At least it will be the temporary cover until or unless I find an actual publisher should my novel be good enough.  I don’t know about that yet.

I am extra tired today because my dog woke me up from a sound sleep when the gardeners got here around 8:00 this morning.  I wish they would come at the same time every Thursday morning but it is alway’s unpredictable.

Plus, the stress of the election put me in a really, weird mood.  I think I am a bit depressed over the state of this country but nothing can be helped now.  I don’t want to hear anyone else say anything about wanting change because it obviously isn’t true.  A lot of the other things I voted for or against did not turn out the way I wanted either.  What a drain to really believe/hope that once again your vote would count only to find that it didn’t in a lot of ways.

 

My Sickly Day and Election Views

So, my day sucked.  I was sick as dog this morning (I don’t know why I wrote that.  I don’t even like that expression but what else do we compare being sick to?) and I missed my doctor appointment because of my migraine headache.  I drove to the election site while sick and the signs were crap so I had to pull over and use my Navigation.  I usually vote by mail but I lost the stupid mail-in ballot.   I’ve only done the bath thing once today for the fissure and it was to long because I had to wash my hair (I have a life, ya know) and I don’t remember if I’ve done the cream thing yet but I’ll do both tonight before bed.

I did get some writing in on Nano and I finally got the tracker on WordPress which I’ve been trying and trying to do since Nono started.  Thanks for you help, Lunatic!  But, I had to completely change the page design and I don’t know if I like this one.  I may only keep it until December so the widget is there and then switch to something else.  To end my day with a bang and make it even better (NOT), the one I voted for (after all that hassle) didn’t even win.  Yeah, now you can bash on me for who I voted for, if you want.  Preferably only the ones that don’t know me.

When Obama first got elected, I lost a friend.  Stupid Prop 8 was on the ballot at the time too so it was mainly for that but it was the same time/ballot.  I won’t go into detail of why I didn’t want him but I did want change.  What we need to change is the Electoral College Vote garbage.  I don’t understand that, at all.  One of the guys on the news was like, “We will give you the number of the Popular Vote since it is interesting, but it doesn’t really matter in the long run.”  That is what should matter in the long run.  What the people want!  I don’t  understand the Electoral College thing at all.  I’ll have to read up more on that.  Not that it makes a difference now, cause it doesn’t.    I am really emotional at present, I feel like I am going to cry.  Very weird.

I think it’s just that my day has been so bad and I went through so much to get my vote in and it was to no avail.  On well, we will have to see how some of the issues I voted for or against turned out.  Maybe I didn’t lose all the way.  Although, I’m sure whatever the majority wants will be deemed “unconstitutional.” and overturned or appealed or whatever.  They almost alway’s do.
