WE GOT OUT!

Not only did my husband and I make it to town yesterday so I could register as a candidate, but we went on to a nearby CITY and had a late LUNCH in a RESTAURANT.

(Thanks for your good wishes about my filing, here and on Facebook and Instagram. I appreciate it!)

We found a Chinese buffet right after Christmas that has an amazing selection of paleo-friendly food. Lots of steamed vegetable choices, non-sugary chicken entrĂ©es, plenty of fresh fruit. My husband is a big eater and loves buffets. I've learned, over the years, to realize it's not necessary to eat my money's worth. (That was a hard one to learn!) So we're both happy … and I didn't have to cook dinner (I can always fend for myself without cooking) because he truly eats a whole days' worth of food – and maintains his weight.

Mostly because he maintains his workout schedule. Heh.

One of my flight instructors used exercise as a way to eat whatever he wanted. He was a runner, was skinny as a rail and ate like a PIG. I guess I just don't love exercise that much. I'd rather eat and exercise moderately than be a fitness bulimic.

But I digress.

I'm glad we went yesterday. Neither of us have ventured too far from home for about a week now and it was nice to get away. I was supposed to go to a WV Federation of Democratic Women board meeting today – about a three-hour drive, one way – but it was canceled because the entire state is under yet another winter storm warning. Four more inches of snow is on the way. SO THEY SAY.

The wind is fierce right now, although the temperature is, surprisingly, not that low at 21° F. And the snow is coming down sideways.

We might make it to the post office later today, but I don't think we're going to get much further than that.

We'll continue working on the decluttering/organizing project we started this month, and I'll cook something yummy for dinner and it's a great day to knit. Other than that – time to hunker down. Again.

So excited you're entering the world of politics as a candidate! Should we call you Madame Committee Member now?

Hahaha! Thanks, my friend! You can still call me that crazy lady who knits in the garden. =)

Which we could just shorten to "Crazy," right? (Aren't you so glad I can comment again?) :-)
