A Brief Respite

From the activities that have kept me from blogging the past couple of weeks. Things have been CRAZY, albeit good crazy. Lots of business, three rush cases and a proficiency test deadline added to days of consults and testimony. Add to that election activities: lit drops, sign posting and replacing, phonebanking and keeping the local Dem website current - whew! All the activity and lack of sleep spurred a relapse in the cold recovery process as well but only one more day! So, what have you been doing? Hopefully, all that you can - we don't want to be caught short in our efforts this time around. Here, in the very red state of Idaho, things are bustling. The local rag gave a sad endorsement for Kerry, but an endorsement for him nonetheless. It was titled, A Reluctant Case for John Kerry - it ended with " In nine days, Americans make their choice. Today, we make our recommendation. With trepidation, it's Kerry." Trepidation? Their endorsements for the local candidates were equally moronic. Well, all that's left is some more GOTV phonebanking, poll tracking and providing transportation to polling places tomorrow. My favorite, encouraging local voting story is delivering absentee ballot requests for two women, one 90 and one 94. The ninety-four-year-old said she thought it was the most important election in her lifetime -wow! I mean I think that's definitely true for me but I'm just a tad over half her age. Anyway, back to the grind. There'll be one post immediately following this and then I'll be off for a few days - after the election, on the 4th, we'll be celebrating our 26th wedding anniversary.
