Daily Activities Include: voting, haircut, decluttering

I feel like mostly the subject line says it. I voted -- poll worker, when asked, said that the prediction was for low turnout (primary in a midterm, so, yeah), but it had been "steady". 66 people voted on the machine before me (one of whom was my husband) and I voted around 9:15 a.m. I had a 9:30 hair cut scheduled. I left the governor's council seat blank and a couple others as well; I could not figure out that race for the life of me.

The decluttering was fairly minor: luggage. I had a Victorinox bag that was slightly too big for the overhead bins so checked baggage only. Also, I hate monopoles. I quit using it after I got the Delsey. The Victorinox was one of those backpack/rolling things with a detachable daypack (which was really on the small side). I also had a way too big Delsey that was the result of an ordering error; I never used it because of substantial risk of oversize charges. (I think I may have used it once on a driving trip, but it's just inconveniently large.) And finally, I had a bag which was left by a guest who bought better luggage while visiting. That third bag pushed me over the edge: I found a Savers in Marlborough that would take luggage. The alternative was to try to donate it to DCF for foster kids' to use, but I wasn't sure how to do that and didn't feel like talking to people on the phone to figure it out. Maybe next time. The Savers had a drive-up for donations; very easy!

There's a bunch of smaller stuff that I should deal with, but that will take time. It was nice to get at least these three items moved along to someone who might be able to make use of them.
