We waited in line for 2 hours to vote for Barack Obama (yes, all of us, DS even voted in her 1st grade class).
The girls were excited about the vote, so we carried our Obama sign that we had saved since the rally in February. Not knowing the rules about carrying posters or electioneering (no signs etc. within 100 feet of the polling place), I was approached by a poll-worker about the disposal of my sign. Whoops. I was sad to see our little art project get thrown away...I couldn't even recycle it, because I was not home.
The girls did such a great job waiting patiently. By the time we made it from outside to in, we went into the booth, clicked our votes and popped out. Lil Sis exclaimed: "That was SHORT!" to the uproar of all the adults STILL waiting to vote in one of four booths.
Watching the states turn blue last night was right up there with the Bulls 3-peating and Christmas morning. Sigh.
