    1. I'm not lifting a damn thing!
    2. It's a gray day, I don't like gray days.
    3. Baseball is boring on television but a damn sight better than a debate.
    4. Going to go build a couple rain barrels after work.
    5. The news about BUN has cast a pall on this day.

    1. The School District is proposing to eliminate the 1/4 mile track at the elementary school near my house and put in a "fitness trail" instead.

    3. I'm considering grabbing my pitchfork and attending tonight's school board meeting.
    4. They are also proposing rebuilding the school and there has not been 1 public notice sign on the property.
    5. I'm getting a haircut tonight. Bye-bye ponytail.

    1. I like to read these threads, but I find it hard to post without asking a bunch of questions...

    2. My old boss dropped by for a visit. That was nice. Wish he'd come back or I'd get promoted at least.

    3. It was "Walk Your Child to School" day today, and I missed it.

    4. I wish I was a stay-at-home dad or trophy husband.

    5. Feeling lots of Bear solidarity today. All hope is aimed "North" today.

    4. I only took 1/2 a painkiller this morning.

    1. I too am struggling with depression now
    2. We took Junior to Cornwell's Turkeyville this weekend and he had a whale of a good time. His favorite activity was riding the 1/8th model trains.
    3. Other than Sunda,y we've seen pretty much gray skies and/or rain every day for a week and a half now.
    4. It will be fun to take Junior trick-or-treating - he's going as a skeleton this year
    5. Now I am going to finish the leftover #8 Jersey Giant sub I got for lunch yesterday

    Bonus 6. I've had this song stuck in my head for several days - seems to go with the weather and my mood

    4. Sadly, I don't think my tummy particularly needs it
    5. Today I had to break out my lined jacket for the first time since spring.

    "Wind" is my least favorite weather condition.
    My dog has found the heat vent that he prefers at our new house.
    My wife is finally using a Groupon massage today that I got her for Mom's Day.
    Our trashy neighbors across the street have their mailbox in a bucket filled with sand.

    2. I got a bad feeling the election next week won't turn out well for me.
    3. I think they are called "hurricanes" because a "himicane" would just sit around and watch sports.
    4. If money is the root of all evil, I could stand for a lot more evil in my life.
    5. Just watching Zooey Deschanel do anything makes me feel better.

    3. My kid is going to school today, but thinks he shouldn't have to because of the election.

    1. I voted this morning.
    2. When I was driving home, I was surprised to discover that it was almost time for lunch... until I realized that I never re-set the clock in my car last weekend.
    3. I'll be going to bed early tonight because I have an early morning meeting, so I'll miss the election coverage on TV.
    4. I refuse to make any predictions about the outcome.
    5. I think it's odd that we elect state supreme court judges.
