oh, what a beautiful morning

Good morning, Internets!

Four years ago, I woke up and immediately wanted to go back to sleep for four more years. This morning I'm exhausted from staying up to watch Obama speak and ALSO I was too excited to go to sleep, but I'm ecstatic. I've never voted for a winning president before. It feels nice.

As I was getting ready, I turned on CNN, just in cases, and poked my head out of my bedroom to talk to Heidi.

Me: Psst!
Heidi: Yeeees?
Me: Barack Obama still won.
Heidi: Oh good, I didn't dream it.
Me: I know. I turned on the news to make sure it wasn't a beautiful, beautiful dream.

Text messages I received last night:

I'm voting!


I am not joking when I say there is dancing in the streets of DC.

I am crying so hard.

Holey moley!


I think "Whoo!" sums it up nicely. Happy Wednesday.

Congratulations on finally voting for the winning president! It's a very good not-just-a-dream today!

My text messages:

Cousin: Thank you OHIO!
Brother: We have a black president!
Heidi: Is it legal to marry chili?

Moral of the story: Barack is fantastic and so is chili.

The. End.

Happy Wednesday! I kind of thought I'd dreamed the whole thing, too.

I am so (i don't know what the word is that could possibly describe what I feel exactly, but if you know what word that is, please insert it here)!

This is my favorite Wednesday since 1994 when my daughter was born on a Wednesday.
