We ate dinner in front of the tv last night while we watched the election results roll in. Eating in front of the tv is always a special occasion at my house. Last night it was not only special, but also historical. Every time another state was projected to go to Obama, we cheered. Me and the kids. At ages 11 and 9, this is the first election that they will remember being a part of. And what an election it was.

I know some people are unhappy today. Obviously they are in the minority. But I have to say, it sure feels good to have some real hope and excitement about the future of our country. Long live Democracy. Long live the United States of America. And good riddance to the Republicans. Bye bye Bush.
