september. october. november.

This month marks my third month in Virginia.
I spent three months in D.C.
I don't feel the same kind of itch to leave, but I still feel it.
I had to leave Washington because I couldn't afford to eat, I was living in a sketchy neighborhood, and I didn't want to get lost somewhere on the Orange line.
I don't know if I'll ever be able to totally unpack. Buy furniture besides inflatable mattresses and plastic patio furniture.
Nine months here. That still scares me. I have six more months here. Weird.

O'Reilly's on the Daily Show. Weird.

it's 75 degrees outside. dude.

Election day was a wee bit crazy. I covered a wreck at one of the polls (overzealous voters?) and Twittered. It was a long day from 8:30 a.m. to 10 p.m.
As soon as Pennsylvania was called, we all figured it was almost over - then when Ohio was called - it was over.
We're still waiting on a local race, the difference was 30 votes one time, but everyone is hoping the incumbent gets kicked out.
All my House faves got reelected by landslides. Yay!

I booked my flight for Thanksgiving, and now I think I'll be eating Ramen for the next few months.
I'm nervous about flying, since the last time I flew I didn't have as many anxiety problems as I do now. I had never had an anxiety attack, I didn't clench my jaw when I was nervous and I wasn't so worst-case scenerio. So I think I'll have to promise myself to make Mom get me Chickfila when I land, cause I'm pretty sure I'll be too nervous to eat that morning.

But it will be good to have a break, since the last vacation I had was Labor Day, which wasn't really a vacation since we were on call in case the hurricane did something wonky. Plus, it will be awesome to: sleep on a real mattress, sit on a couch and pet the dog.
Looking forward to gorging myself on Tia Maria's salsa. Yum yum.

100th post.

What it do.
I need to sleep, but I'm so ready for tomorrow to be over with.

I haven't been feeling 100 percent for a couple of weeks, and I don't know why.
Hopefully, the next few weeks will fix that.

Tomorrow is going to be a long day, but hopefully, that means Thursday and Friday will be short.
