AFTERMATH

Well, sorry my little blogger peeps, but my poll to the right was not a very accurate representation of what happened in our election. I have been having a MARVELOUS time reading all of the post election posts and rants. Most especially this one and this one. I have to admit, having all of that social pressure removed from me during this election was kind of nice, and NOW I can say, Well, it's not MY FAULT we are in this situation! Because I had ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with it.

Truth be told, I really don't know who I would have voted for. The nice thing about not being able to vote is that you DON'T ACTUALLY have to decide! (Or take blame) I mean, I am a registered republican... my husband a registered democrat (He LOVES it when I tell people that) Especially because he is not, but it is funner to tell people that than "Independent".... whatever that means. Anywho, political debates have gone from very LIVELY in our first few years of marriage to kind of boring as we have both started to drift to the center. I am not sure that a vote I have made has ever really counted anyway because I don't think we have ever voted the same way (unless it is on "those issues" you know that ones that I am talking about).

In the end, we DID just witness history being made and to think that my daughter will actually have Obama as her first recollection of an American President is pretty cool. After all, it WAS a HISTORICAL EVENT. [BTW, Abby said she was going to vote for Obama and when I informed her that she can't vote she said, "but my friend did! She went to the Library and voted!" Uh-huh.. Truth be told, I am just happy SOMEONE has decided they WANT to take on the mess that is this country. Good luck, best wishes, hope it goes well and all and I don't think the fact that Oprah is going to have to PAY 12 million in taxes now, rather than SAVE 9 million in taxes (under McCain's plan) is that bad of a thing.. Maybe Oprah can now pay off the national deficit all by her little old self.

As a side note, my little poll says there is still a few hours left to vote! If you want to change your vote or add a vote, DO IT NOW! :)

O'Bama is a cool guy. I just wish I liked his policies more. It will be interesting to see if he lives up to all the hype. For our country's sake, I do hope so.

I've been fascinated by all the political posts this past week. People can be very passionate about their opinions :)

Thank you for writing. I needed a Lindsey post this morning:). Lennon has thrown up 3 times so far and Crue has pooped (A LOT), and I just needed a "me moment". Thank you.
