I've been chatting with friends as they wait in long lines to vote today or texting with friends who are so excited they could "pee their pants". I voted weeks ago thanks to the early voting that is possible in my new state, and the encouragement of one of the two congregations I've been worshipping with to do so.
Kev and I are heading to a classmate's apartment when he gets off work to ready fondue for an election night party there. I'm hoping to grab a nap this afternoon so I can stay up as late as possible. Heck, maybe I'll even indulge in some late in the day caffeine.
This is a HUGE day for our nation (maybe for our world).
But... it is a pretty big day in this pregnancy too- I am due exactly a month from today.
I was born at the tail end of Gerald Ford's pregnancy. My earliest years on earth Jimmy Carter was at the healm.
I will be THRILLED if a month before our baby enters this world, we receive word Barack Obama is heading to the White House, THRILLED if he begins to lead just a month after our baby enters this world. May it be so.
