I went and participated in early voting this afternoon (Super J voted on his lunch hour-ish). What a sweet relief it was...seriously. Now I feel as if I've done my part and I don't have the same anxiety as just a few hours ago.
I have voted. My voice is/was heard.
As I left the voting place, I wanted to shout, "Wahoo!!!!" In fact, as each person came out, I wanted to applaud them for their effort (regardless for whom they voted) because they VOTED! But those of you who know me, know that I am, in fact, not that sort of person. I want to be, because how great would that be (though I'm sure people would look at me like I'm a weirdo and I have tried so hard all my life NOT to look like the weirdo I sometimes feel I am) to have someone cheering you on like that.
However...I hope you know that I was mentally applauding each and every one of those people who came out, and when I came out, I said, "WAHOO!!! Inside. To Myself. But I did proudly put on my "I VOTED!" sticker.
And took one (with permission, of course) for Tuesday.
I'll wear it on Tuesday for as long as I can...I say that because, if today's sticker is any indication, Miss O will want to peel it from my shirt and apply it to the coffee table.
In any case, go and VOTE!!!!!!
