My mind is all over the place tonight. Politics, my mom, fitness, food, sleep, books I am reading, etc. I spent all afternoon driving my mom around, and still managed to walk 9.3 miles and do a little yoga. I took Cooper out for his last walk of the night and he insisted on taking a longer, faster walk than I intended. He is loving these cooler temps. I am getting anxious about the whole political thing. That is all I have to say about that, because anything else would be flagged "inappropriate". While mom and I were out we hit our usual grocery stores and farm stands, plus one extra, where we found the cutest little butternut squash for only 10 cents apiece. We got 10 of them, so we spent a whole dollar. LOL... I am in the middle of reading two books. One I have read before (Hot Six, by Janet Evanovich). It is a fast, easy read. I also started a historical romance today while I was waiting for mom at the wound clinic.

Tomorrow I have to drive for my mom again in the afternoon. She is doing a mediation. So, I have the car again. It is easier if I just drive the car home, so I have it already the next day when I need to pick her up. Her reaction times are pretty slow, so we really don't want her driving. She thinks she will be driving again soon, but I am hoping she decides to take advantage of my willingness to drive her places for quite a while... maybe forever.

As you can tell, I am having trouble focusing tonight, so I am going to grab a snack and one of my books and snuggle with the dog while I read. I am still sniffling and snarfling, so it will probably be another early night.

    I understand completely the rambling. We are still waiting the thing to be resolved soon. IT HAS TO BE RESOLVED.
To read a book is a very good way to help our minds to focus emoticon on something different than the problems, specially if they are out of our hands.

    Sometimes rambling is a good think - it helps me clear the junk out of my mind so I can relax. I hope it did the same for you. Be well soon.

    I have finished all 19 of Janet Evanovich's series and I love them. I agree that they are a quick read. Congrats on getting in your exercise even with a busy day.

Sorry you are still battling your cold/crud. It wears you down sometimes. I am so happy to hear that Cooper is again spirited and wanting to take his long walks again. It does mean you have to take those long, quick walks with him but it also means he is not traumatized any more. It is a good, good thing. Help yourself be well,

    Get some rest and enjoy your books. I'm reading "Marathoning for Mortals" right now by John "The Penguin" Bingham. It is a fun encouraging read.

Sorry you are still sniffling and snarfling.

Drink plenty of fluids emoticon

Good job getting in 9.3 miles today!

I can understand you would be upset about the political situation. I have been following the news on CNN and it's crazy.

I love Janet Evanovich books. I listen to the audio books and the voice actress is wonderful.

I hope tomorrow is a better day.

Sleep tight!
