On Tuesday, I have a whole event planned because, let's face it, almost nothing gives me more pleasure than a theme.
On Mon. night Sam and I will both have our nails painted (with non-toxic, child friendly nail polish) red, white and blue.
Tues. morning we will all wake at 6, dress up in red, white and blue and walk out to breakfast near our polling place. Then we will all vote (except Sam and Alan, although let's face it, both of my children are more civically engaged than 90% of the population. Personally, I'd rather see them vote than the toothless masses).
Tues evening we will have a little election party complete with themed dessert(s) and appetizer(s). For those attending, please wear flag colors or at least a flag pin on your lapel.
I am knocking on wood with all my might, but it looks good, my friends (not in the John McCain way), it looks really good.
For the first time in years, we may actually be celebrating instead of crying. Lifelong republicans I know are voting for Obama. People are crawling out of the woodwork to say enough with the attacks on intellect, science, decency and humanity. In fact, the recent polls I have seen are showing that we may have our candidate locked in before the polls even close in the West.
I don't want to be premature when I say a new day may be dawning and there may be hope for this country yet. The liberal elite is speaking and apparently, some people are listening.
****Auntie K does her patriotic duty and is, therefore, welcome at my party:
