The season is starting again and tonight I’m on the main floor because the Chicago Symphony Chorus is playing with the CSO. Yah!

Yay E’s here!!! And I need her strong arms to hold me and keep me in one piece this week. I’m too glad she’s here.

The precious and perfect dog — at least on the outside. She’s getting older, and her birthday this this weekend. She’ll be 11. Or is it 12.

A real live QR code in the live! I’m reading Automobile magazine (I know, BIG shock!). I tried to read it with my WinMo QR Reader but it’s nothing — it’s a fake code.

It’s officially my first snow of the season. We’re going to get about three inches tonight, so everything looks so pretty and still this time of night.

Mom duties call and it’s Sunday. I’m in Michigan again for the week. My aunt called the church and ordered a special mass. Now we’re over there hanging out. The three sisters, again.

A quick jaunt to Michigan for an unfortunate reason. Five days ago, Stacy’s dad passed away and now today’s the funeral. So sad. I drove up just now and will be heading back to Chicago in a few hours. Sad day.

I officially live in a better country with Obama as president. Yay Dems!

Voting. It’s time to be an American and stand in line and choose the offices that govern our country. It’s simple, right? So why this year, of all years, will there be a record turnout when in fact we need a record turnout every year? If we fight so hard for freedom, cherish our Veterans is this just not a given? Apathy isn’t for the young. It’s obvious with this election. Let’s get out there and vote our asses off!
