Since late last week, I’ve been alternating between being immersed in construction work – we’re getting close to finishing the mother-in-law suite addition to our house – and sleeping. And that’s pretty much all I’ve been doing.
Since last night (and we stopped work about 11pm) I’ve been working on floating sheetrock. Jeez, this stuff is like real work, especially working on the ceiling. I may start having withdrawals, though, if I don’t catch up on the news soon. I took a few minutes to check Hot Air and Ace of Spades while I ate lunch just now, and apparently Romney’s pretty well locked in the nomination. While I’m still not a fan, we could do worse. Like keeping Obama in office, for example. And this speech did hearten me up a little. It’s discouraging that my initial response to it was, Well, Mitt, were you lying then about your moderate, anti-Reagan, progressive positions in Massachusetts, or are you lying now? But, whatever. I have sheetrock to float. If you haven’t heard the speech, it’s pretty decent. I hope he meant it.
