I took today off from work. It would have been unfair for me to claim I was working from home when in fact Iâ€™d most likely be wrapped up in election results, so I decided to just use some of the vacation time I have left in the hopper. Itâ€™s openness and honesty thatâ€™s contributed to successfully working from home for a decade.
The news pundits are claiming we wonâ€™t know who the next President of the United States is today, even though itâ€™s starting to lead toward Biden at this moment. This could change at any time. Whatever is going on, the truth of the matter is, it shouldnâ€™t be this close. It shouldnâ€™t have come down to this. Why nearly 50% of the American electorate would continue to support Trump is beyond my comprehension. Perhaps theyâ€™re tired of wearing a mask or something.
Iâ€™m trying to avoid doomscrolling Twitter and getting wrapped up in the theatrics. Itâ€™s easier to be calm and cool about these things in the morning. The night of Election Night can be too frenetic.
I must be getting old; Iâ€™m finding the mornings to be easier to manage.
