10 on Tuesday: Things on My Mind Right Now

I played “voter” while waiting on line to vote. This means all my picks win, right?

Today’s 10 on Tuesday topic wants to know what’s on my mind right now – as Carole’s email said, “Good or bad, funny or serious – spill it!” And so I did, though it’s not all “right now,” as I wrote this in dribs and drabs over the last couple of days. So, it’s really what was on my mind at the moment I had the WordPress app open.

1. The election. Who in the US isn’t thinking about this today?

2. The fact that I need a haircut desperately. I need to find a new stylist, though (mine is kind of in a rut) so I’ve been stalling.

3. Why my right sock is falling down but my left one isn’t. This happens all the time, actually, when I wear trouser socks. It’s pretty damn weird.

4. Food. I skipped breakfast today so I could do my fasting bloodwork at the doctor’s office and seriously, can hardly think of anything other than getting lunch.

5. Jetlag. Though I thought I was not out west long enough to get jetlagged, between the three-hour time difference and the seasonal “fall back,” I have no idea what time it is. All I know is that I want to eat and sleep at odd hours that bear no relationship to either Pacific or Eastern time.

6. The weather. There’s a new storm brewing on the East Coast, and with so many people still reeling from Sandy – and still without power, water, shelter, etc. – another hit could be devastating. So I’m worrying.

7. My computer. I just got a new laptop at the office a week ago Friday, and it inexplicably had a major freak-out today. (As in: multi-colored strobe light on one monitor, and similarly colorful static on the other.) Seems totally weird to have something like that happen to a new machine.

8. Sleeping. I mentioned the jetlag, right?

9. My bloodwork. Kinda hoping that everything comes in a little high (well, except my cholesterol) since the doctor seems agreeable to boosting my thyroid meds if that’s the case. I’m not feeling awful right now, but do suspect I could be feeling better.

10. Heat. I discovered upon getting home from Spokane that my furnace – which broke four times last winter – is broken again. Really not looking forward to another winter of this!

What are you thinking about right now?

  1. 1. The election
    2. The attempted mugging 3 doors down from us last night
    3. That my new stove is currently preventing it’s neighboring cabinet from opening, and hoping that’s a temporary issue
    4. Which new fridge do I want?
    5. Ordering my new washer and dryer (not a front loader!)
    6. That I’ll hopefully be moving in to my new house in less than two weeks
    7. That fall back has totally wrecked James schedule, and therefore mine too
    8. That I’m really glad I cleaned out my car, had it vacuumed and washed, and got a bunch of maintenance done on it this past week. Somehow a clean car makes me feel more grown up
    9. I wish I had a dishwasher fairy or elf
    10. I’d love a nap right now but heading to sleep at 5:40 seems ill advised.

  2. 1). Sure. The election. B.U.T. I just want results and am SOOOO tired of listening to all of it!!!
    2). Nor’easter coming ??? Not NOW!!! SOOO many have too many storm woes to deal with and it is really getting COLD!
    3). Eileen’s BIG MOVE. Wish, oh wish, I was a mile away and could lend a hand here and there!
    4). Sarah’s eyes. Haven’t had an update on that in quite a while.
    5). My snow blower, which is to be picked up tomorrow for servicing. None too soon! And, prob won’t be returned before storm. Although accumulations are decreasing and might be too heavy for a machine anyway. Yeah 😰
    6). Can’t understand why my iPad EMs are not tramsmitting. Working on that.
