I started the day by making a To Do list, that didn't fit on one page, and I plugged away at the list all day and got a fraction of the stuff done. Being busy does not mean un-bored. Nothing on the list was the least bit exciting, and now this wretched dinner thing again.
Have I mentioned that I'm trying to keep to 1500 calories a day? Brutal, and not at all scrumptious. At around 5 o'clock, I lose all creative energy and motivation (assuming I had some to begin with) and start feeling like a starving beast, ready to eat my own hand. You'd think I'd be rushing to make dinner, but, no, I'm too distracted by thoughts of In n Out burgers and things with sauce. How do people live like this?
Yesterday in school, Leila's teacher was talking about the constitution and voting, and told the kids that people could vote for either John McCain or Barack Obama: one kid started it, and the others chimed in until the whole class of first graders was chanting, "Brock Obama! Brock Obama!" I remember going to the multi purpose room of my elementary school in the first grade to watch the inauguration of Jimmy Carter on a little TV set, and now my daughter will get to watch an inauguration in first grade, too. Go Brock!
