All I want to do right now is read the internet obsessively and get ready to watch election coverage. But it’s NaBloPoMo, and I have to post something. So I’ll do a quick Election Day photo essay!
Even though there was no school today, I got up relatively early, and got Lorelei and Emily up, hoping to get to the polls by ten. We didn’t quite make that goal! But at least we didn’t need to worry about crowds this time. Unbeknownst to us, they split our precinct place and sent half the voters elsewhere (not our half, happily). There was only a short line, although the workers said that it had been steady and was busy earlier with voters on the way to work.
Here are our happy post-voting pictures!
Emily was away at college for the last election and didn’t get her absentee ballot in time, so this was her first vote for President. Lorelei is still a bit young, but I let her push the button.
And here I am, rocking my “pantsuit.”
I got the idea online to go on a field trip to the Women’s Suffrage Memorial, located downtown in Market Square. We found a parking place and I even managed to parallel park!
Then we went to lunch at Pete’s (a downtown institution, where the girls had never been), and then to Krispy Kreme for our free doughnuts!
Since then I’ve been glued to my computer and I’m getting ready to be glued to the t.v. We have snacks and pink champagne and we are going to have a little party. 🙂
And tomorrow, one way or another, life goes on, and maybe I will be able to concentrate on working again!
