'CHANGE HAS COME TO AMERICA'

Good morning, it is Wednesday.

The title of my blog was the huge headline on today's Seattle Times newspaper. How many different ways will that be said in print around the world this morning? Did you actually think you would go to bed last night with Obama winning by a landslide and hearing the speeches of both McCain and Obama before 9:00pm? It was the very minute that the west coast polls closed that the the race was officially called. What a change. Amazing. And the candidate's election day parties pretty much summed up the whole race. McCain at a rich private hotel in Arizona without a hint of diversity vs. Obama in Grant Park in Chicago with a crowd of hundreds of thousands of diverse people just wanting to be there. Obama's party was like an opening ceremonies for the Olympics, much bigger than what a political party has ever felt like as far as I can remember. Wow!

We still don't have results of our state's mayor or senate races. Some of these races are just too close to call and it will be some time after hand counts and stuff that a winner is actually awarded. The Dems certainly have the momentum, but no winner just yet.

Today is the Veterans' Day Assembly at Preston's school. Lillie has dance class, and the rest of us are just hanging out.

See you tomorrow.

How often do we have massive jubilation in the headlines?? I'm overjoyed and enjoying it too. Love, Susanna
