YES, WE DID

Yesterday, I braved the long lines and was rewarded for my efforts. No, not the voting lines (those were actually moving pretty fast), but the free Starbucks I got for voting – that line was almost 20 minutes long!

Actually, I can afford to be glib about the election since the outcome was exactly as I had hoped. I woke up this morning feeling a bit different than I had the last few days and realized that, although I did not initially support Obama (I was a Hillary supporter),
I really bought into his message for hope and for the first time in a while, I was actually proud to be an American last night.

I am excited and proud to have this charismatic and inspirational person leading the country and really believe that he can change the perception of Americans abroad and undo the damage the Bush Administration has inflicted in the last eight years.

Husband and I went to the polls yesterday with the Baby and voted as a family. I even let the Baby pull the lever for me (although I am afraid she may be a closet Republican as she reached out for the McCain lever and I had to redirect her hand). So now, I am interested to see how Obama shapes the presidency and brings our country back from the ruins…

Me, too! I'm proud that Husband voted! Don't be too hard on the Baby - remember - she can't read yet. Just think... she will by the next election!
Congratulations on picking a winner.

You don't know me but I really need a very competent and skilled
doctor. I was checking for a good
doctor without success and I came upon the name Dr. Kendler and then
your blog. Could we please asap
have a few minutes conversation by email or by phone about Dr. Kendler. I need a very knowledgeable Internist and also an endocrinologist and an eye doctor. I won't take up much of your time..........just need some
reassurance as this is very very
important to me and my health.
You can email directly -- S3707@aol.com -- Thank you very much.
