The more things change
The more things change....
Sometimes a day is a story in itself with drama and action and a myriad of subplots and you hope the loose ends get tied up nicely by the end of the day so you can close the book with satisfaction. Those days wipe the hell out of you, let me tell you. Even if nightime does bring a good ending, and a solid one, it still makes you feel as though you've been through enough to last you a while. For the first time in a while, I slept soundly last night, with only a few minor disturbances in my dreams.
I woke up to changed landscape here, though. Not only has the nature of mine and Justin's relationship changed, in a very good way I mean, but Election Day has caused some minor adjustments to be made. We have, for the first time in 30 years, a Democrat running our county. My boss lost his bid for State Supreme Court, which a that's good that's bad sort of thing, for me at least. He still remains District Court Judge; I know where I stand for the next year at least, without the worry of who they would throw at me to replace him had he won; and I just really enjoy working for him. It comes as a huge shock, though. Everyone thought he would win hands down. His opponent ran a horrid smear campaing, something which is against the judiciary ethic rules. So we will see what happens with that.
Anyhow, I am not going to work today. It's parent/teacher day at Natalie's school and I have a feeling that when I get home from two hours worth of standing on line to talk to these teachers, I will not be happy with the reports. And when mom isn't happy, it goes without saying that Nat won't be happy either. I'll make sure of that.
