I got up at 6:30 this morning so I could walk down to our polling place with B and vote for Barack Obama, along with various measures and propositions, including a big NO on Prop 8 - against gay marriage and Prop 4 - requiring parental notification for abortions.
I have not allowed myself to get too overly optimistic about this election, but today I am allowing myself to hope that things will go our way and tomorrow I will wake up with hope and pride in my country.
Meanwhile, I am making spaghetti sauce and pumpkin spice cookies because we are having people over tonight to watch the election results come in. I need to run out and buy a bunch of stuff now.
