I’ve been waiting on this day to come and go as soon as the campaign season started. Elections are draining!

During the 2008 election… I was all in, blogging, working for the Obama campaign, registering voters, working the phone banks and all. By the time Election Day came, I needed a two week nap! This time around, I just watched from the sidelines. I really didn’t have all of that energy & time. I even avoided political news coverage as much as I could but it found its way into my life.

I guess there really is no place to hide.

This morning, I actually woke up energized and excited. Made it to my polling place and the entire process only took 35 minutes. Got to work & couldn’t concentrate. Maybe it was the excitement… Whatever the case, I later made my way to the Obama’s Ypsilanti campaign office and found people still busy working the phone banks, canvassing and even giving rides.

Such great energy  & a few people even remembered me from volunteering 4 years ago…

Now? Preparing for friends to visit & nervously wait for election results to pour in with fancy snacks end exotic libations.
