On voting..

I had to add my own election-day entry.

As fickleone will tell you, I'm so not into politics.

However. 

I must say I feel differently this election.  I don't remember feeling this way about an election since I lost the blush of the young, rose-colored glasses voting of my early 20s.

And from what I'm reading on LJ today, there seems to be a lot of emotion/passion around this election.

Here in Oregon we vote via mail.  So hubby, daughter, and I voted days and days ago.  I usually love that we vote via mail.  So much more convenient. 

But today I admit I've had a few moments of nostalgia for the old days of going to the polls and waiting in line.

And I'm actually interested in turning on the boob tube to watch the results.  And I refuse to think about hearing about bad news--it will be good.  It's called positive thinking.

I know too many people in my life right now that are facing challenges.  We need good news today people.

Happy Election Day!

(And I really can't believe I'm saying this.  I'm mean I could have been the poster child for apathetic, disenchanted American voter.)
