That's what most of us are doing today. I did my voting, took Harrison to soccer and now if I want to, I can go get a free cup of coffee at Starbucks, a star-shaped donut at Krispy Kreme, or a scoop of ice cream at Ben and Jerry's. So many choices. Isn't democracy great?

Seriously, I'm happy all of this mucky-muck is over. Don't get me wrong, I take it very seriously yet I made a choice not to bring politics to this space. This is my space where I come to escape and when I want political opinions, I go to some great blogs and websites out there and get the opposing views. I'm just tired and annoyed with the TV ads, telephone calls, postcards and leaflets flooding the mailbox in these final weeks. As always, by the time the final onslaught hits, I've made my decisions.

I voted.

I voted based on my beliefs, my convictions, my conscience - to the best of my ability given the information I had access to on the issues and the candidates.

But let me just say one thing, whomever ends up in the office of the Presidency, I believe this country truly is in crisis - for so many reasons; we are more fragile than we like to think and I don't envy his job at all. I will continue to pray for the President and for my country.

Now the real fun begins.
