Voter Number 204

Well, I'm feeling sick and weak today but that didn't stop me from voting.

I'm fortunate enough to live within 10 minutes walking distance of my precinct and the weather in Michigan is FANTASTIC. I decided that since it was so nice, I would grab the stroller and take Alex for a walk with me to vote. (I regret that decision, now. My body is SO achy.)

Alex and I arrived and entered the building promptly after parking his stroller outside. There was a line but it wasn't terrible. We waited about 10 minutes and then had our turn to vote.  Alex was so patient and was saying "Hi" to all of the people waiting in line. What a charmer.

I felt giddy as I FINALLY got to fill in the oval for the man I feel is best for the position of President. I wished I could send him a text message afterward that said, " I just voted FOR YOU!"

I'm proud to live in a country where I have the freedom to choose.  I'm also SO happy that this will all be over soon and we'll finally know our Presidential Elect. 

I've decided that whether or not my candidate wins, I'm not going to let it freak me out. So many people are saying things like "If (enter name here) doesn't win, I'm moving out of the country." Pa-lease. Don't you think that's just a tad bit over dramatic?

Alright, well, that's enough for now.

GO VOTE!

  1. I have also heard many many comments that seem a bit over exagerated. We will see what really happens with these people tomorrow I guess.

  2. Good for you! Hubbie and I were completely prepared for the longest wait ever only to show up be voter #551 with no wait whatsoever at 11 a.m. with 3 kids in tow. whew! Just found out my BIL doesn't plan to vote - how sad. DH told him he is not allowed to gripe about a thing if he doesn't! No matter if you don't like either candidate, there HAS to be a lesser of 2 evils to everyone!

  3. I love living in the US, and although I sometimes talk about moving out of the country it is usually just to try to escape my mother-in-law!

  4. Whatever the outcome, God is still in control. I'm glad to have the right to vote, as I work with people who came from countries where this is not a privilege.
