Ahhhhh.


Even though I went to bed way past my usual bed time, I slept so peacefully last night. Everything that I and many other people in the country worked so hard for, ended in the way we wanted. Barack Obama is now our president-elect and I couldn't be happier.

I was very impressed with John McCain's concession speech. Very gracious and always a gentlemen. Unfortunately, a bit disappointed in his supporters which were booing, but it's understandable.
Joe Biden will be an excellent Vice President and Michelle Obama, a great first lady. I know they will both represent our country wonderfully.
I also would like to thank MSNBC with it's great coverage without the use of holograms. Seriously CNN, that was just weird.

I'm excited to see how everything plays out between now and January 20th and can't wait to see changes taking place.

Voting Day

Voting day is definitely a big deal around here. We've been glued to MSNBC for the past 3 days, well at least 3 days, probably a lot more.

Fortunately, I was off of work today so I've been tuned in.

We went to vote this afternoon. Here in New York we still have the old fashioned lever booths, like you see on TV. It was hilarious because the people in front of us literally took 10 minutes, and there were only 3 things on the whole ballot. But oh well. It's still a cool experience to pull that lever.

I was kind of disappointed in our "I voted today" stickers. Just some words printed on some Avery labels, but I still wore it with pride.

We then headed to Starbucks to get our free coffee.


We're having people over tonight to watch the results to come in. We recently bought the School House Rock : Election Collection DVD and there was a vote tracker in it. So we've got it all set up on the wall to put our red and blue stickers on all the states.
So hopefully we will get an answer tonight and this doesn't drag on for very long. I hope you all took advantage of your right to vote and have a good evening watching the votes roll in.

Yes, I've moved again

You're sick of me blog hopping right. That's ok. I am too.

I thought I liked Typepad but I was wrong. And I definitely didn't like my old Blogger. But I did like free...so, presenting, Shiny! by Melissa Norris.

This blog is all about me, my family, my hobbies, and my life.

I will be working on the layout in the next several weeks as I have time, but I'm pretty sure this is going to be my permanent home.

Thanks for stopping by!
