Holding My Breath on Election Day

Ok Folks. It’s all come down to today. Forgive me for not really having many words. I am very busy wringing my hands and muttering to myself. And desperately trying to remember to breathe. I’m am grateful to have voted already because I can’t possibly imagine having to truly function today. But I will, of course. I will distract myself with writing that needs to be written and playgroups that must be played at. While I rock my Obama T-shirt proudly, I will ogle the voters that are already lined out into the parking lot up the road from here. On my way to kindergarten pick-up, I will drive past the fields of campaign signs that seem to have sprung up overnight. And I will over hear those conversations in the grocery store line: “Whats the difference between Barack HUSSEIN Obama and Osama Bin Laden? They both know someone that bombed our country… har har har.” And I will keep my mouth shut. Because today it’s time for this country to quiet down, focus and finally decide who they want in charge. The majority will tell us which direction we are headed next.

Make your voice part of the majority.

Please vote today.

Deep breaths.

I’ll be back to talk to you on the flip side…

  1. This sounds like me today, exactly.

    Love the bulletin board pic- saw one like that near Disney a few weeks back and was sad that I didn’t have my camera on hand.

  2. Chris – LOL, that sign WAS near Disney! On I-4! 🙂

    Sigh. Why does no one ever mention that McCain took money and support from Warren Jeffs, who may not have been a 60’s radical, but does believe in forcing 13 year old girls to “marry” their uncles. Grumble, grumble.

    Anyhoo, go drink your free Starbucks and stop fretting! You’ve done your part!

    oh wow, I was listening to the radio last night and they have the same topic “what’s the diff between Osama and Obama?” Haha! And I’m in the Philippines. How coincidental is that? :))

    I’ll go for Obama too, if only I can vote. 😀
