I just can't stand this. I know they have to get the vote right but

I cannot stand the yo-yo he's going to win, he isn't going to win. PA is in the bag, it's going to be close. Nevada is done, not-so-fast. Blah blah blah blah blah.

My nerves are completely shot. My eyes are blood shot and I think I need a shot!

This has to end. The country can't keep sitting on pins and needles.

1. Staying busy away from the news is the best remedy.

2. I'd rather have accuracy than speed...

...besides, if the waiting is driving you nuts, think of how it must be for Dead POTUS Walking.

3. There are no yo-yos.

We are gonna win PA. All the Dem officials there have been saying it since yesterday. The math just doesnít add up for Trump.

Everything else is theatre.

4. I haven't heard anyone saying Biden can't win.

From the start, it has been pretty clearly Biden momentum. I think you can relax, everyone know it is Biden.

10. Thanks LizBeth

 

It has been a really long four years for all of us. But I honestly don't know how I would get through another 4. You are right there really is no reason to think that this nightmare won't end. But I am scared shitless for my kids.

6. Yeah, the emotional see-saw has tied my stomach in knots for days now.

I'm like this:

sometimes all in the span of a couple hours.

7. Stay busy if you can. Paralysis sucks.

I drink a lot of tea. Helps your nerves. I've been baking too. I'm fatter but saner.

16. Most of my baking friends say they same thing. I will attest to their sanity.

The therapeutic benefits of baking can't be overstated.

21. It's amazing, right? I eat a home made chocolate chip cookie and I just glow inside.

I feel so grounded. I recently made banana nut bread with dark chocolate chips-heaven!

9. Don't take a shot now!

I'd love a glass of wine, but I want to make sure that I'm sober enough tonight to open the bottle of champagne that I've been saving for years for a SPECIAL occasion! I feel sure that I'll be opening TONIGHT!

12. That's OK. Many of us are right there with you.

Including me! I had to step away for several hours and go outside to rake leaves just to get some of the nervous energy abated. I have refused to turn on my TV all day because I know myself well enough to know that would only ramp up the anxiety. I check DU off and on, but even that gets me going.

I wish there was a way that DU could just ring a virtual bell when the call is official - something I can hear if I'm away from my desk. I want to honk my horn or go out in my yard and shout at the top of my lungs - at least so the trumper down the street hears me.

Yeah I am working on remodeling a couple rooms in my house and I go in and pull some nails every now and again or sweep the floor and some other things. But then I pull out my phone, Or I flip on the radio.

Ugh this is torture!

13. I avoid cable news

completely and get all my information on-line.

DU is one of my go-to sources.

It's so much nicer to listen to good music while I'm surfing the web than to hear the anchors jabber on and on ... and on ... and on.

And there's always Netflix. I've been on a Korean series binge lately.

Iím beginning to be a bit suspicious of their motives.

19. We'll get there. It's just going to take some time.

I keep imagining how wonderful it will be to wake up in the morning with Biden as President. I will no longer feel compelled to check the news first thing to see what kind of awful thing tRump has said or what horrible policy he's enacted. Not to mention wondering whether he's brought us to the brink of war with his insane playground bully provocations.

We're going to have a real President. Not a reality show pretend one. Focus your thoughts there.

And I just can't watch the news.

This is such a nail-biting experience.
