I didn't get to sleep until about 6am. I was polishing the cedar chest at 5am. I was alternating cleaning and watching "The Countdown" w/Keith Olbermann and "The Rachel Maddow Show" on MSNBCtv. I slept on the recliner until 11:15am, the longest I've ever been able to stay sleeping on that thing, LOL. I crawled into bed until noon, and then [personal profile] fings and I showered, dressed, grabbed a folding chair (just in case, we had no idea if there would be a very long line, and I didn't fancy standing for an hour or more. stupid flat feet! we didn't need it).

Finally voting was just great. I must say however, I miss the old school voting machines where the switches you moved for your vote kind of clicked, and then you pulled the lever with a very satisfying "ka-chunk!". Afterwards, we went to Cafe Rumba for some damn fine Cuban food.

We got home and I napped a bit on the recliner. I woke up rather cranky. I was feeling utteryly wiped out. Now I'm just really tired. Both mentally, and physically. I guess the stress of it all has taken a bit of a toll. Thank goodness this day is finally here, and we will know one way or the other what the frigging outcome is, already! My stomach is in knots, and I've already cried a little. I am hopeful, very hopeful.

We are expecting [personal profile] thudthwacker and [personal profile] eafm in a short while, as well as my oldest nephews. We'll eat, play some games, order some food. And maybe have the MSNBC.com live coverage on :D.

And yes, our apartment is cleaner and neater than it has been in weeks and weeks. HUZZAH!!! Now we need to work on the small room (so full of stuff and junk) and neaten up the guest room. Oh, and lots of damn paperwork to sift through, file, shred, organize. I need to draft one of my nephews to help move a lot of stuff to Goodwill. Oh, and we especially (ok, I need to) make sure the current level of clean and neat gets maintained as much as possible.

Four years ago today I threw [personal profile] fings a "wink" on Yahoo personals. We started emailing on 5/29/04, and met for the first time on 6/4/04. We'll be celebrating 4 years together, 2 married on June 4th. I love my sweetie!

Today has been an utterly shitty day, I can't even get into it here. Trust me, SHITTTTY. But I'm feeling better, so I guess that's good. Am flagrantly accepting any and all good thoughts and energy that a potentially crappy situation will be avoided. Thanks.

But, yesterday was a nice Valentine's Day :). [personal profile] fings got off of work early and I met him in Hoboken. We had a nice dinner at Maxwell's and and sort of sat there a little goofily, marveling over the fact that we've been married for almost 2 years! Our anniversary is a little under 4 months away, still, it seems to be going fast! We walked home, picked up some groceries along the way. When we got home we couldn't really agree on something to watch, but that was ok, he worked on some computer stuff and I crawled into the recliner with many blankets and a book ("The Other Boleyn Girl", it's really good!). After a while I got sleepy and sort of conked out. Fings almost gave me a heart attack when he woke me, even though he tried to be gentle. I was really sleeping! It was just a really nice and companionable low-key evening.

Oh, and I picked up some new books at B&N before I met with Fings, I had a $40 gift card from Christmas. They had a buy 2, get 1 free table and I picked up a biography on Jimmy Stewart, "The Female Brain", and "The Life of Language". It was $34 and some change---I am so brutally spoiled by paperbackswap.com where I am getting so many fabulous books for the price of media mail postage, or worst case paying $3.50 for a credit. SPOILED because I felt scandalized by the price even though it was a pretty decent deal considering the prices of new trade paperbacks at B&N (I should have paid closer to $50 for those 3 books). Oh, paperbackswap, how I LOVE you.

Well, our apartment is clean, roast pork, arroz con gandules, and macaroni & cheese are ready to be eaten; chicken is roasting in the oven. My family should be trickling in soon, with their crazy Puerto Rican ways :P. Hopefully the drama will be low. Oh, and a Christmas miracle! My borderline agoraphobic mother will be coming. Wow. Tomorrow, [personal profile] fings and I have to haul ass to the train station in Hoboken to take the train to Raritan so we can spend tomorrow with his side of the family. Christmas craziness :). But in a good way! A Very Merry Christmas Eve & Christmas Day/Yule to all who celebrate!!

I received a new camera for Christmas! I got it about a week and a half ago, and I finally had fings set it up for me; a Canon A720IS. YAY, 8 megapixels!!!

I will report more Christmas loot tomorrow :).

I won the husband lottery! When I got back to bed after my last post, [personal profile] fings "talked me down" (basically, he gives me a guided relaxation) like he often does when I have trouble falling asleep and it worked. Didn't sleep as much as I would have liked, but the sleep I did get was good and got me through the day :).

I had my CDA Workshop class on Saturday and for once I didn't leave dragging my ass and grumbling curses under my breath ;). Class was dismissed a little early and that was a nice surprise. After some loafing about at home we took the bus to the Port Authority and bought tickets for "The Darjeeling Limited". Then we took a walk around Times Square for a bit and poked around Virgin Megastore (there were some plush "Nightmare Before Christmas" dolls I was DYING to buy, but I was good) and then headed over to Dallas BBQ for some dinner. Mmmmmm :); though I had rotiserrie chicken and fried shrimp (that was effing delicious). After dinner we hopped across the street for the movie. We really enjoyed it, I think I enjoyed it a bit more than [personal profile] fings, but I'm a bigger sucker than he is for Wes Anderson movies. We hadn't had a nice date night like that in a while.

Yesterday was a good day, got lots of chores done and then loafed comfortably later on in the day.

Three years ago today, [personal profile] fings and I met for the first time (and thanks again to Yahoo personals for facilitating our meeting!). A year ago today we got hitched in Las Vegas. Time is moving merrily along. I'm very much in love and in like with my sweetie. Ah, I'm feeling sappy!
