    Election Day

    Am I the only one who cannot WAIT for tomorrow to be over! I am so tired of mailings, phone calls, commercials, etc, etc. Don't get me wrong. I believe in the political process and treasure our ability to vote for our leaders, however this year, it's all too much. All I keep thinking is all the money that has been spent on all of this could have made a major dent in the national debt or helped the people in NJ and NY - something useful. Does all these media sway your vote - not me. So, all you people who are in Aruba enjoying the sun and sand - be thankful you are away from all of this (hopefully you voted by absentee ballot)! Thanks for listening - and don't forget to vote!

    AMEN Hockeymom! I too cannot wait to first of all cast my vote and second of all not have to sit thru any further commercials. It is bad enough with the commercials for the Presidential race, Massachusetts we have to suffer thru the Senate commercials as well. The only thing that has been enjoyable and so, so funny is Saturday Night Live, if you have not watched it at all it is well worth DVRing it just to see the spoofs

    Ditto.... Mr. Prez and Mitt... I'll cast mine in the morning. Here in MA... Scott and Liz... one of you will get me too. Thankfully all this campaigning is done. Now on to the media for the lengthy and boring coverage. Maybe I should bury my head in the sand until Wed am and see what happened!

    I had the foresight to record several TV programs so we don't have to watch a minute of the state by state predictions of winners. We'll find out soon enough.

    I debated on whether to post anything Andrea. I didn't know if it was "politically correct" so to speak. I was just so frustrated this weekend and last night. But, it will all be over soon. Maybe in 4 years, we'll make our trip to Aruba in November too! I can't think of a better place to be on election day! Enjoy the day. Another storm heading up the east coast. Hopefully it will spare NY and NJ. They are saying maybe a little snow in western New England. Let's hope not! I liked last winter...

    your post is absolutely politically correct.
    no candidate talk , no political party affiliation talk
    we are good

    i cannot wait for the media blitz to be over........how long has it been going on now? 10 mos? a yr?

    i hate it.

    i think, and i wish many would agree that we convert back to monarchy and i could be the queen. i want to be the queen.

    off to the beach, need to get there early for a spot in the shade.
