Are you ready????

Happy Halloween!

Are you ready? No, I'm not talking about Halloween so much as next week (although I think I still have some candy left around here). I don't know about you, but I'm soooo ready for this most bizarre of all US Presidential elections to be over.

Why can't we handle our elections the way Great Britain does and have it all finished within a few months? Better yet, the way Australia does -- in six weeks. Both countries also limit campaign spending. Isn't it high time we did the same?

And speaking of six weeks or a few months, I'm taking a blogging break. Probably for all of November and December. So sorry to miss reading your blogs but I need some time off.  I'm way behind on my writing and reading, and something has to give. I also want to start querying my novel in verse and I need to get cracking on stalking researching agents.

See you on the other side!

  1. I agree! Australia has the right idea. I can't wait for this to be over. My favorite bumper sticker says "We're Screwed 2016." That's how I feel, but I'm sue we will survive whatever happens. Have a nice break. I hope you get everything done you hope to.

    1. I pretty much feel the same way, Rosi. But I'm not sure voting for a third party candidate makes sense either.

  2. Yes, I'm ready to get this over too. Excited to take my daughter and her boyfriend to vote for the first time, but wish it was a better one for their first time.

    Have a good break! I'm planning to have a quieter two months but will be around.

    1. Thanks, Natalie. Well, at least it's historic for your daughter's first time voting.

  3. I think it's high time (actually past high time) that the candidates just grow up and try to make the country better, instead of just calling everyone else mean names. The kindergartners at my school behave better than that.
