Election Day—yikes!

While I want this to be over, I'm petrified of the fallout if American voters make the wrong choice this election. I can't vote until after work, as my polling place is back to being my local elementary school and there isn't enough parking. Before work is also school drop-off, so that wasn't going to work out.

This weekend, I took down the outside Halloween decorations. They still aren't boxed up (I had to shake the water out of the lights, and crack open and drain a plastic ghost), but maybe tonight? I DID get out on the roof and look around for any chewed spots that might explain how the creatures-between-the-floors got in. The roof looks great, so no news there.

Sunday, while I was in the bathroom, I heard a *scrabble* *whoosh* sound-sequence that I thought might be a squirrel skidding on the roof.

Me: Hah! So there!
??: *whuff* *whuff*
Me: Wait. Kitty, is that you?

The noise wasn't from the roof, it was from the door to the hallway. Someone was seeking access to her buckets again...

I'll be going out for a bike ride in an hour or so. The weather should be nice—about 75o, with little wind. OTOH, the wind direction is from the dump. Also? It's spider migration season again. *positive arachnid-free thoughts* *positive arachnid-free thoughts*
