Random Randomness

I am thankful for all the people who voted early and waited in those long lines so those of us procrastinators could vote with no lines today. I was in and out in 15 minutes, an new record!

I am thankful for the end of daylight savings time since Hayden thought it was bedtime and fell asleep on the couch at 6:15pm.

I am thankful for Cub Scouts because the other guys are gone and I can watch election coverage in a quiet house.

I wish I could talk to my mom about the election. Those of you who have lost a close relative know that there are those times when you think, I wish I could call them right now. This is one of those times for me. It is the first presidential election without Mom cancelling out Dad's vote. Just when I thought I finished with the firsts without Mom. Geez.

I am thankful I found a package of marked down Breast Cancer Awareness Hersey Kisses at Target. I will need those tonight. I would be happier if they were Ovarian Cancer Awareness Hershey Kisses, but I realize I can't have everything. Are you listening Hershey Kisses People?!

I am happy that Carter and Griffin went with us to vote today. They are excited about the process and looking forward to the 2020 election when they can place their first votes for President.

I am excited to see how many people turned out to vote, I hope my guy wins.

My guy did not win but I expected as much! I realized from your post that I am looking forward to the next couple years when cub scouts will start at our house and I can have some "downtime" while they are gone. A newly realized benefit of having boys. Thank you!
