I've just thought of that line from Hamlet's soliloqy where he says "to sleep, perchance to dream." Never mind the dreaming part. Right now, I just want to sleep!
I haven't had much sleep this week. On Sunday, I drove to Harrisburg with Marisa and Jill. We met Val, then went over to Mount Hope to see the Poe show. Then it was back to Harrisburg for dinner, and then the ride home, which included a pass through some wicked thunderstorms!
The Poe show was good. We saw some sort of bogus magic thing, but then we saw "The Black Cat" and "The Tell-Tale Heart", and both of those presentations were excellent. Finally, of course, "The Raven", also well done.
The biggest change seemed to be in-between performances. The wine-tasting used to be free. But now, you can buy wine by the goblet. We each got a glass, and nursed it through the rest of the show. I suppose the set up allows them to accomodate more people by not having to worry about big crowds at the bar.
So that was Sunday. Tuesday was election day, which I'd been working toward for the past few weeks. I went in at 9AM, and didn't get finished til 3:00 the next morning. Then, I went back in for a few hours on Wednesday morning to finish up. Everything went pretty well, which is good, but it also means my schedule will be changing every time an election comes around.
When I got home Wednesday afternoon, I took a box up to the attic and discovered that the cap for the exhaust fan blew off, I'm assuming during Sunday's storms. So, basically, I now have a big hole in my roof. Apparently, I have to replace the fan, too (seems you can't just go out and get a cap). Once that's done, I'll have to have an electrician come and hook it up! Remind me again why I thought buying a house was a good idea?
Anyway, now that elections are over, I'm back on night shift. But, I had to get up early on Thursday because Bill came over to look at the roof, and then Friday, I was up early because that's KT's schedule now. Then, I had to get up early this morning to be in Scranton for the Santa Parade.
My big plan for tonight is to drink some of the wine from Mount Hope, and sleep.
