My absentee ballot was mailed off yesterday after delaying it for a few days just to make sure my candidate did not drop out. He said he was in it until the end, which I interpreted as "at least past Super Tuesday" and I cast my vote.
Wasted vote! I knew Edwards wasn't going to win, but I thought my small vote was a show of support for the one candidate who seems like a nice person and the only one to really care about the working poor, but alas... I guess this is what I get for voting absentee.
If that news was not annoying enough, I went to see Clover this morning while she was still reading in bed and she looked up at me with big pink, puffy and crusty eyes. Clearly her love of accessorizing with pink has gone too far.
Off to the doctor - after squeezing in Rocket's swim lesson - and then on to the pharmacy where is took almost three times as long as waiting for the doctor to get Clover's eye drops. People looked at me like I was horrible for being out with a clearly ill kid, but blame the pharmacy. They should have a priority for people who are obviously sick or in pain. My pacing near the counter with a howling Rocket and pink eyed Clover did not seem to bother the pharmacy staff at all, as they went along with business as if we were not there. I made me wish pink eye was a little more contagious.
