And I'm sooooooo glad it's over. I did my part. I went into the booth and colored in the bubble by the lesser evil and hoped for the best.
Other than the whole voting thing, I had a pretty killer day, despite the fact that the majority of my family was feeling pretty crappy. I got the kids to school and the hubs to work, then I headed in myself. I knew we just needed to get through today and then I could keep the sickie kids (and mom) home tomorrow for some soup, snuggling, and healing time.
Once I got to work, thing went pretty well. It was a calm day in the bakery and I managed to make some new cupcakes and sell quite a few too, which always makes me happy. I made my Peanut Butter Cup Cupcakes for the first time and, since they were filled and had a special organic peanut butter cup on top, they were just slightly more expensive than my standard cupcake. And they were flying out of there. My favorite comment of the day was when one of my facebook friends came in and said "I saw the pic on facebook and knew I needed some of those in my life."
I got out of work at just the right time, handled some medication issues for my daughter, picked up the kiddos from school, and then got Not-So-Ex. We went to vote and then wrapped up the day with dinner at Lola's, which always makes for an excellent evening.
I'm looking forward to being home with the kids tomorrow, even if it is cause we're all under the weather. I see lots of Psych watching in our future. And probably lots of soup. And sneezing. My daughter and I have really been bonding recently. I know it sounds silly, but I'm really, really enjoying her company. And that feels so awesome. Since she's 13, I know the days of us actually enjoying each other may be numbered, so I'm really, really holding tight to these times.
Anyway, hope everyone has a good post election day. Hey, if nothing else, at least we can all celebrate the end of all those awful election ads!
