It’s nearly afternoon, and I finished the coffee pot an hour ago, but what the heck.

Man, did I sleep late this morning. I’ve been dragging badly all week, so I decided to let my body decide when to wake up this morning. I went to sleep around 11 p.m. I woke up a little before 10 a.m. Can you believe it? I mean, I didn’t even get up to go to the bathroom. I slept rock hard solid for almost 11 hours.

I don’t like it – I love most of my dreams, and I feel as though I have an alternative life in that world sometimes because of all the reoccuring elements. BUT I want to live my life fully in the waking world, and I haven’t been doing that lately.

I’m looking forward to this afternoon, though. Sandy is taking a shower and when he’s out we’re going to the Liberty Antique Festival. It’s the last afternoon and people will be starting to pack up and probably any good deals are gone, but I don’t have hardly any money to spend anyway. I just enjoy looking. Wait, I take that back about the good deals though. When they are packing up, a lot of times they will go way down on prices.

Barack Obama and Joe Biden are about to speak at a rally within walking distance of our house. If I sit outside, I’ll probably hear snatches of it. We thought about going to that, but I really honestly hate crowds and Sandy is looking at voting for Obama as the best of two bad choices. He is is actually more radical than I am in some ways. I hate most politicians but I support Obama and feel like he would be a good president, although I feel sorry for anyone about to take on the aftermath of Bush’s mess. I don’t agree with him on some issues, and I think that he gives in too easily, but I also recognize the necessity of bringing the polarization of this country into center.

My big news this week is that I dropped my design class, and boy, do I feel better. I simply am not interested in computer graphic design. It is a clear sign of my insanity that I keep trying it every few years or so and end up quitting. It won’t happen again, unless I slip my gears again, that is.

So, tomorrow, I’m going to make books. I haven’t forgotten my goal for the Doing Not Thinking Challenge. But it’s not really because of the challenge. It’s because I really, really want to!

I still don’t have a camera. I get paid next week so hopefully next weekend I’ll buy a new one. I definitely want one to take to John C. Campbell the last week of October. I was very tempted to buy a sewing machine from Joann’s online this weekend, because I’ve had it with mine. I have a 50% off coupon and they are offering free shipping on sewing machines. So I could get one for about $65. But I mentioned it to my co-worker and she offered to give me hers, as long as I’d do an occasional repair for her. She says it was a gift and a good one, but she never uses it. Yay!

Okay, Sandy is about ready to go. I’m off to look at great old stuff that I can’t afford! Whee!
