Happy Election Day, Cinco de Mayo, and My Anniversary!

May 5th, 2009 (05:56 pm)

current mood: hopeful
current music: I Love Toy Trains

We have a local election today in Alexandria, and I split much of my time between standing in front of a polling place to hand out sample Democratic ballots for City Council and Mayor, and calling voters to urge them to rush to the polls and vote Mimi Carter onto the School Board. At last report, voter turnout was low, but I'm optimistic. The polls close in an hour, at 7 p.m. Keep your fingers crossed for us!

Meanwhile, it's my 19th wedding anniversary, but I've been busy being political, and my husband has class tonight and won't be home until late. So we'll have to celebrate on the weekend.

Now I'm going to Mimi's house to make some more phone calls for our last hour of poll time, and to celebrate (I hope) her victory with a Cinco de Mimi party.

Good for you! If I had to hand out Democratic ballots in my neck of the woods, I'd need a flak vest. ;-)

Happy anniversary a day late (of course, I'm in AZ, so what with the time difference and all, your anniversary isn't until tomorrow).
