2008 – A Vote for History

I’m now in Colorado for my mom’s 2nd Chemo treatment. I’ll be here until the 6th of November which means I will not be homeon the 4th. Election Day.

Hmm. Now, that’s a bit of a dilemna, yes? What about voting?

Sure, New York is a BLUE state, and so, my BLUE vote would be voiced with or without me actually casting said vote. BUT…

This is history!!! How on earth could I not cast my vote is this historical election? Well… I couldn’t not vote so I voted early via absentee ballot. And my 13 year old daughter cheered me on as she, too, witnessed a bit of history take place in her lifetime.  

How amazing is this?

  • It seems like everyone I know voted early this year – which is great. But for me, I want to vote on election day. There’s something about it. It just wouldn’t seem quite right to me if I voted early. And from the looks of the turnout for early voting, I could be the only one there. 🙂

    Glad you were able to get your vote in Debbie. It’s more important that you be where you are right now but I’m glad you were able to get both things. done. 🙂

  • Debbie,
    Hugs and prayers for you and your mom. I keep thinking of a song “He’s the rock that I lean on.” I don’t remember any more of it than that. (I hate it when one line plays over and over in my mind.)But I think you are the rock that your parents and grandmother lean on. Good for you.

  • Debbie, it’s wonderful that you and your daughter are in Colorado for your mom’s second chemo treatment. The absentee ballot is a terrific convenience. A prayer is sent up for your mother, you, and your daughter. Those who care need them too.

  • Sending hugs and healing energy for your mom, Deb.

    Wanted to let you know, I nominated you for the “I Love Your Blog” award. *smile* You can find details on my website. Take care and thanks for the recipe!

  • Good for you, voting early! I found your blog via Chiron; very nice! 🙂

  • Laura,
    I agree and would much rather have voted ON Election Day. It’s like opening presents a week before Christmas – just not quite the same. However, there was no chance for me to vote Election Day so I’m truly grateful I had the opportunity of an absentee ballot. Too cool.

    Linda,
    Thank you so much, Linda, but I have to say – they’re pretty tough people in their own right. It’s good to be able to help, though. And, I know I’ve said this before, but with Daughter homeschooled… well… it’s like everything has fallen into place for us. Can’t beat that, can you? 🙂

    Kathleen,
    Thank you! And yes, the absentee ballot is a wonderful thing. Hubby voted ON Election Day, though. By himself. It was to be a family affair, but things just didn’t work out that way. Didn’t really matter this time, though. We still let our voices be heard. How wonderful this country is, yes?
