well cookie night is tonight. i have cookies made--will be careful and low ball my calories so i can participate tonight. not a lot of sleep last night--rob is so stressed out over the past election--we stayed up for a long time talking about it. i think we finally drifted off at 2 and at 4 when shambles had to go outside, he was sound asleep. rob is a brooder and worrier--as a software engineer his mind is conditioned to construct worst case scenarios and then design systems proactively to avoid them. he is VERY good at his job. but it is a part of his personality that makes it hard on him when he is confronted with unknowns and deep changes. but this morning he said he had worked through a lot while he was sleeping and made some decisions while he was exercising and showering this morning.
i am a hands on person. if i am worried about something i put my hands on it and start right away trying to fix it--this is not necessarily a better way of going about things--its impulsive nature often forces me to back up and start over. normally between the two of us we hit a happy medium--he thinks things through to exhaustion, but i step in with ants in my pants and keep us from complete paralysis. it will happen with this too.
have a lovely day, everyone!
