Anyone else stressed?

I'm stressed. Worried. The countdown to the election is killing me. It's not just about the presidential election- although that's enough. It's California, it's a bunch of state races.

Nerve wracking.

I can't help but feel we are all on the edge of a great reckoning for this country. I've never felt this way before. I'm both excited and anxious.

There is nothing to say right now about who what where or how we should go forward. I think we all know.

All we can do now is wait.

Hell yes, I'm stressed. A Obama defeat would be crushing. On top of that there are so many Senate and House races that are very, very important. Plus even those of us not living in California are stressed about your Prop 8, which seems to me like a question of whether we take one step forward or ten steps back. All this then is in the context of my small retail business taking a huge hit and now losing money every month. I face a choice of either further depleting my retirement savings or going ever deeper into debt. It ain't pretty.

Yea, I can't even watch the news anymore. It stresses me out too much.

I pace a lot, too.

Crushing is one word for an Obama loss. Not big enough, though. Devastating comes to mind...

Well I will just be happy when its over main form of advertising here is yard signs so I will be happy to see them gone!Here in Georgia we have early voting I have already voted I went with my parents it took my mom longer to get her new car tag than it did for the 3 of us to vote.Working 2nd shift I did not want to find a super long line and worry about being late for work.So if you can early vote go do it. I am not worried about the next week my vote is cast so win or lose I am content I made the right picks.We will more than likely be having at least one runoff due to a judgeship that had at least 6 people running for the vacant post.So stay tuned for the dust ups that will happen next week!

Film at eleven!

It's like when you were 7 and your birthday was a week away. You were pretty sure you were getting what you wanted, but there was still a good chance you'd end up with socks and underwear instead. :(

Especially since this has been going on for almost two years. Everyone is so over Bush.
