Mysterious voting shenanigans

So... I don't know how this happened, but Steve and I both somehow became registered voters at this address without re-registering ourselves. How is this even possible? I was about to get new registration paperwork a few weeks ago when we got our voter's guides in the mail. Our names, addresses, party affiliation, etc. are all correct, and it shows our new polling place.

Has anyone ever heard of this happening?

I guess the Republicans really want us...

On Saturday afternoon I sat in a parking lot telling my 94 year old Great-Grandma goodbye on the phone. She couldn't talk anymore- just make noises, and it was awful. I actually threw up later. I've been waiting for the phone call that she had passed away.

I got an email today saying that she is doing much better, as in sitting up and eating lunch. I don't even know what to think about this. A miracle? A temporary reprieve? It is a chance for my Grandma, her daughter, to fly back to see her one last time.

She is an awesome lady, and I had always wished that I could make her a Great-Great Grandma someday. I doubt that will happen, and who knows how much more time she has. It is hard, though, to say your last goodbyes over the telephone. Even if they could possibly not be my last goodbyes to her.

Love you, Grandma.

I just saw Juno, and I must say.... GREAT movie. I loved it.

I'm too tired to say anything more.

I was driving down my street on Friday and saw a man standing outside in the pouring rain, using a hose to wash down his driveway.

We've been having some storms up here the past few days. It was raining very hard- enough that my garage started to flood, and I saw several trees and a fence down in my neighborhood from the rain/wind combo. We may get hail tomorrow as well. ;o)

I'm currently knitting another pair of socks (my fourth) and recruiting more of my real-life friends who happen to knit or crochet into Ravelry. It is fun to see them appear on the site! Soon it will be open, and then anyone will be able to see the huge amount of data and projects I've been accumulating on my site there. I must admit it has taken some of my internet time away from this blog...
