Probably the most important thing I did today besides feed my kids, wash some clothes, paint the last room in my parents new house and answer urgent e-mails was the thing that took me a whopping 15 minutes to accomplish.
Chris and I sat on the couch, discussed our political opinions and voted with our absentee ballots.
When we had littler kids it was always such a hassle to get down to the polls before they closed. So a long time ago we decided to vote by mail-in-ballot. Although I love the thrill of going down to the little booth and making an event of it, I have to say that I get even more satisfaction out of the tradition of making a date with my husband on the couch to talk over serious issues and prepare our votes together.
And this election is a big'un. So make sure you find a way to get your vote in. It's REALLY going to count. And if you are interested in an absentee ballot being sent to your house go HERE.
