    In that vein, no more 24-7 election coverage in general. I'm almost looking forward to the first plane-about-to-crash, avalanche, or hurricane that CNN can get their hands on, just cause it's something different and those seem to be their specialties.

    Oh, also, taking stock of the line outside the school and deciding to wait until later, saving myself at least an hour and my boss's wrath.

    I was thinking about you today, Canadian Angel. I have been so caught up in the election here that I was glued to all that was Obama for the last long time...

    I am happy to hear you are enjoying your exercise class. I spent the day enjoying my students in the library at rainy day recess! I had quite a crowd today and they were all in great spirits.

    Sharing a bottle of good champagne and Belgian chocolate with my hubby to celebrate Obama's victory! (just wish that the situation had been such that we could also have celebrated the defeat of Prop 8)

    Watching the coverage over and over of Obama's speech with Jesse Jackson's face streaming with tears and everyone's reactions. I can't get enough!
    Count your blessings!

    That sounds great! Soak it in before winter hits! It is nice you could be together on such a fine day.

    Seeing the smile and gratitude on a Vet's face when you thank them for serving. Especially the Vietnam Vet's, who didn't get that until recently.
