Itís a good thing I didnít have anything major on the agenda today, because I never really got started. It was one of those days when it was all I could do to keep awake. Working was way beyond the scope. I did what I had to do (barely), but thatís about all.

Two separate times today I found myself falling asleep in my chair. Drifting off into a real nap would have been the best thing I could have done for myself. I even considered stretching out on my bed, with my pillow and my blankie. That wouldnít have worked, though, because every time I reached the point where I began to relax, the phone rang.

Iím dreading tomorrow, not so much because of how little I got done today, but because it will be the Bossís first day in the office all week. He didnít tell me he was going on the road, and when I did finally hear from him he didnít tell me heíd be gone this long. Iím sure heíll expect to get a weekís worth of work done in the next two days (assuming heís planning on sticking around that long).

The only reason Iím babbling about how tired I am is that Iím too tired to collect my thoughts and babble about something more important. I have things I need to do, not the least of which is to go through the voter guide and study all those propositions on the California ballot. I have my absentee ballot, so I can vote as soon as I know what Iím doing. Today wouldnít have been a good day to try to figure that out, though.

Cloud reflections.

I also need to get my house straightened out a bit. Iím getting a new refrigerator when Mom moves this weekend. Itís her old one, so itís not really new, but there will be one in her new place. I get the benefit of the spillover, probably because Iíve been whining the longest about how inadequate my own fridge is. But I have to make room for my old one, which Iíve been hoping to put in the bathroom if itíll fit through the doorway. And I have to make room for the other things of hers that Iíll be storing here. I havenít done any of that yet, and today wasnít the day for it.

Tomorrow wonít be the day for it, either, but Iíve run out of time and run out of days to put it off. Thatís the only thing that gets me going when my energy is at a low ebb like this — the little bit of zip I get when Iím flat up against a deadline. Iíve said it before, and Iíll repeat it now. Without deadlines, Iíd never get anything done.

As far as Iím concerned, the Republicans have squandered every shred of credibility they might have had with the way theyíre hammering John Kerry with his words ďglobal test.Ē Theyíre telling us he meant that France and Russia (and Poland?) would have a veto over U.S. foreign policy, when what he said was exactly the opposite. He said he would never cede ďthe right to preempt, in any way necessary to protect the United States of America.Ē

But he went on to say that it has to be done in a way that ďpasses the global test, where your countrymen, your people, understand fully why you're doing what you're doing and you can prove to the world that you did it for legitimate reasons.Ē

Thatís not a bad thing! If you arenít doing it for legitimate reasons, you shouldnít be doing it! Thatís why the Bush people donít like the idea, because they know their justifications for invading Iraq have been proven false. Trying to turn it around on Kerry by deliberately lying about what he said doesnít change the fact that heís right and theyíre wrong.
