Did You Vote?

November 4th, 2008 · No Comments

Election Day is finally here.  It’s too early to have much in the way of results but I’ll keep an eye on the TV tonight in hopes of good news.  I voted late this morning, around 11:00, and had no problems.  No lines, no confusion–everything went pretty well.  I’m curious to hear how it went around the rest of the country.  There’s been a lot of efforts to purge voters from the rolls in heavily-Democratic districts.  At least we were ready for it this time.  The party had a lot of monitors and lawyers standing by in case of dirty tricks like we saw in 2000 and 2004.  Not this time. I’m also very curious to hear how it went in the states using electronic voting stations.  I’m not at all comfortable with those things and worry that they are an electoral disaster waiting to happen.

But enough of that.  Things have been going pretty well in the family, albeit at a hectic pace.  We continue preparing to move.  Seems like we’re writing checks left and right and generally spending money like drunken sailors.  We’ve been furniture shopping; the new house is 2 or 3 times the size of our current place and we need to fill it up.  Not all at once, of course.  But we do need more things to sit on.  We’re also in the process of getting all the utilities connected and disconnected, as the case may be.  November 25 will be here before we know it.

Rayna is excited about everything.  We took her and Kaylee there a couple of weeks ago to measure and take pictures of the interior and she understood very well what was going on.  We went down to the two children’s bedrooms and she went into one and loudly announced that this was “Rayna’s room!”  Upon seeing the big soaker bathtub that is much larger than ours, she just stood looking at it for awhile and then simply said “How do I get in?”

Halloween was a lot of fun.  I don’t have any pictures up yet; most of the ones I took came out fuzzy.  Seems I had a setting on the camera misadjusted.  Urgh.  We took them to my office to trick or treat and a lot of others took pictures too, so I’m hopeful to get some photos from them.  So stay tuned for that.  Rayna was a princess and Kaylee was a flower.  That night, we went to a neighborhood church that was having games for awhile and then we trick or treated on our block.  The girls had a good time but Rayna got awful wound up and had a hard time sleeping.  She ended up sitting with me on the couch watching TV until 10:30 or so before she finally settled down.  The fact that I insisted on watching boring news helped too.

Not much else to report.  It’s almost time to start getting the girls ready for bed, after which I’ll settle down to watch the election returns.  Crossing my fingers…
