my vote

My post tonight is about voting and not really very political.
Whenever I walk into the gym of our elementary school to vote, I am reminded of a few years ago when it was our first time using these new voting machines. Having not much of a choice, I brought my 2 kids in the double stroller with me to vote. As I am waiting in line, I absent mindedly let Rhett out of the stroller. He touches one of the machines and it comes crashing to the ground face first. As the man helping is picking it up, I notice the screen is shattered. I was so completely mortified! The man couldn't have been nicer and made sure that first off my son was alright. I wanted to crawl into a hole. So, now I make plenty of arrangements on election day to be able to go and vote by myself.
Well ok, here is my political 2 cents. Regardlessly of if things went the way you wanted, isn't it exciting to watch history being made?

Oh my gosh! I can't believe it. I would be so embarrassed too. Thank goodness I had the Howe's to watch my kids cause I am sure Kylin would have done the same thing. I told Craig about it and he was like WHAT! Then he laughed pretty hard :) Don't you just love it when other people laugh at your expense. hehe.
