Anyone else feel like their life is on hold until this election is over? I keep catching myself holding my breath as if I can control what happens between now and tomorrow.
I can say that this election has served as a great education for my kids. We’ve discussed equal rights, racism, honesty, taxes, electoral votes, optimism, the separation of church and state, the legislative process, Roe v. Wade….the list goes on. I’ve even had the chance to set the example of becoming involved in an election – something I’ve never felt compelled to do before. Not only have I made monetary contributions, but I spent part of yesterday phone banking for Barack Obama. I was nervous, but mostly, people were very nice. I think I will do more calling today.
Heartwarming moment: my kids arguing over who got to post the “No on 8” sign in our yard. I am raising tolerant kids! Yay!

Random thought: I cannot believe that there are still people who are undecided! Are they just saying that, or are they truly undecided?
This is an historic election. Historic. Regardless of how you plan to vote, I implore you to get out and do so. It’s our duty to participate in this democracy. I mean really? Can you imagine NOT voting in this election and having to explain that to your grandchildren someday? Let your voice be heard.
