Waiting on the world to change.

First of all, congratulations to Barack Obama. I stayed awake last night as long as possible & I did miss his speech. I am about to spend some quality time with youtube right after I browse Coach purses. Unfortunately, the one I fell in love with in Texas is not easily located here except Nordstrom & it's over $400. Somehow, I doubt I am entitled to that much prize for calling an election that I think J already knew the outcome.

Anyways, I'm proud of the Commonwealth of Virginia for turning blue. I think that's a huge deal! Next, we'll work on Texas...

I'm making my way through the speech. Malia & Sasha both deserve that puppy!!

So, this monumental day also falls on the anniversary of my mom's death. She has now been gone for 9 years & I can hardly believe it. It all seems like yesterday to me. My mother was in a coma for 13 days before she passed & every day when I was at the hospital I would put the headphones to my portable CD player on her & play track #1 of BW Stevenson's Greatest Hits. That song was, yep, "My Maria".

My boss just called. She said, "So, we have a new President." She sounded a bit disgruntled. I'm pretty sure she voted for McCain.

I've now finished the speech & Obama God blessed me. Twitch. Well, after some contemplation I think I'll just suck it up & walk around today feeling blessed.

I guess we don't have to wait so much.

TEF stole my Amanda idea. It is gorgeous, I want the black and green. I wonder if any of my santas will think i was a good enough girl.

P.S. Bill is acting like he forgot about the bet of 100 during the primaries, and you witnessed him acknowledge it on more that one occasion. Your subpoena may be on its way for Katy Court, to be held at the Newark house ASAP!

And yes, I absolutely remember Mr. Hines & his declarations. My God have mercy on his soul.
