Frustrated and pleased and worried

I sacrificed most of my lunch hour to NaNoWriMo, was really pleased with what I'd written, went to save, and the computer turned itself off. It was on the little fan stand. It should not have overheated and shut down. Eventually, after working the whole afternoon and driving home, I found I hadn't lost everything--the autorecover had saved at about 150 words in. I lost probably twice that. Better than losing all of it, of course, but it's still frustrating!

So, after discovering what I'd lost, we went off to vote. There was almost nowhere to park! Very unusually, our polling place was busy. There was a line at the "register and vote today" table. Heck--there WAS a "register and vote today" table. I'm sure it's been there before, but even during presidential elections, I don't remember seeing anyone using it, much less a crowd of people. My Angel was 177, and I was 178, which doesn't sound high, unless you realize this is a precinct where in primaries they don't always make it into double-digits.

So now I get to worry about the election results. And all too soon, I fear, about the results of the election results.

That is a bummer about loosing so many words. :( At least it did save something, I guess that's a bonus.

My best wishes for the election. That is interesting your polling place was so busy.
