And I hope you did too!
I have voted in every election since I was 18. That includes absentee voting when I was at college.
I take this privilege seriously. And since I get the day off of work – don’t ask me why that’s a holiday for us – I have ZERO in the excuse department.
This year was special. Although I have personally known people before in our local elections, this is the first time that someone I consider a friend is running for office.
An office that is important and that I think she would be spectacular in the role. So voting for her – it took on a special meaning. Especially since I know she is running for all the RIGHT reasons.
Today was a day when everything seemed to fall into place.
Marc and I got around this morning and went in to vote. I took advantage of the day that most people don’t have off and didn’t have to wait in line to get my oil changed, to fill up Dexter and to get a few groceries.
After lunch, although it was pretty windy, it was – for this area – a positively tropic day. Marc and I took advantage of it and headed out on a bike ride. 30 miles later I arrived home spent and happy.
I threw a pork, apple and sweet potato casserole in the oven and then relaxed.
Today was a good day and I’m keeping all my fingers and toes crossed that it ends the same and my friend emerges as the victor!
