Well, it's the morning after. Everything here in MO went according to the way I voted except one amendment which was amending something back to the way it was before and a couple of local seats that were more of a 'this guy or this guy could win and I won't care' - like county coroner. I voted for the independent there because I thought he had more experience overall. The guy who won was already in as coroner after the last coroner died. :shrug: And I voted for the incumbent commissioner for our area because why fix what ain't broke. The other voters didn't agree. :also shrug: It's not like the post is critical really.
Of course, the Presidency is still up in the air. With each side saying 'our guy won'. And the press getting things all farged up. This is all unsurprising.
We went to bed at 9. Hubs was up in the middle of the night. I'm up now and he's sleeping. Nothing's changed as far as the election goes. It'll probably be days. Might be weeks. They stopped counting votes in PA. There was some kind of water main break or something in Atlanta, so Georgia's ballots will have to wait. Not sure what's up with Arizona.
Personally, I've always thought the media called the races way too early, but that's me. "With 1% of the votes counted, we declare X has won"... Umm, ri-i-ght.
I spent a bit of time yesterday blocking people on FB again. Nobody I knew, but just people with lunatic comments in other people's posts. People actually defending socialism like it's a good thing. That sort of stuff. Umm, don't know you, don't want to... block.
Anyway, here's hoping that when the dust settles, we'll still have a nation of laws and freedom. I don't want to think about the alternative.
Okay, off you go into the world. I've got to figure out what I'm going to do today when I don't actually feel like doing anything.
I can't tell you the number of times my head exploded in the past 24 hours. And will likely continue to do so for some time to come.ReplyDelete
We flipped a House seat here, taking one away from Fancy Nancy. We also had a historical local county election for sheriff--both candidates were black. The blue had the lead when I went to bed. Woke up to discover the red pulled it out. We didn't care. Both have LEO experience, both had similar views on things important to us. Nationally, my stomach is in knots. I just...nope. Moving on.
Hang in there. Go fishing. Read a good book. I have words to write, groceries to buy, and family dinner tonight to celebrate Only. Which means I need to remember to stop by the bank to get her "present." 😆
Hang in there. Oh. I said that already. I need more coffee. 😜
