I find myself annoyed by almost everything in my life at the moment which, I’m aware, is not necessarily the ideal condition in which to post a long overdue update, but it is what it is. Most of what’s annoying me I won’t detail here, so as to protect the not-so-innocent, but I will say that, like probably every other American, I am so ready for this election to be over. I am also ready for the time-suck course that I’m currently taking to be over, and I am definitely ready for certain phases in my kids’ development to be over. Most of all, however, I am ready for this day to be over.
