I'm pretty sure I'm done

I think I'm done. I just voted today! Mail-in voting is the BEST THING EVER! I just don't think I can handle anything else that has to do with the election. I think I said everything I needed to say about Prop 8 and Obama. There is just so much negative energy that goes along with politics and elections and I cannot handle it anymore. I'm ready to go back to playing with my kids, cleaning, and doing laundry without all the thoughts of politics bustling around in the back of my mind. For a while now I've been really stressed out and worried about what would happen if Prop 8 didn't pass. Over the weekend I started reading in Helaman (a part of the Book of Mormon) and I saw so many parallels between the Nephites and us. The part that brought me comfort is that God always watches over and protects the righteous people who have faith in him and stand up for what they believe in.

I have stood up for what I believe in. I don't need to spend time stressing about the possibilities of what could happen if Prop 8 is defeated. I've done my part, so now my main focus has to be on making sure that I do everything I can to be righteous and be an example for my kids, my husband, and anyone else that notices me.

So, you most likely won't see anymore politically themed posts. (If I do consider taking on some other subjects I might just make a separate blog for that) I'm eager to get back to posting about my kids, Nate, good food, and good fun!

Amen! I just sent in my absentee ballot. Politics can be exciting but I don't care for the negativity that goes with it either. I think it's great that you've been able to convey your enthusiasm through your blogging.

Hey, that wasn't Stuart it was me. I didn't realize he was still signed in until too late. Oh well, more comments for you. As I say, it's about the quantity not the quality. Just kidding, I think :)

Thanks--It felt good to do it, and now it feels good to be done!

So do we get some new pictures of you and the boys now? ;) I've enjoyed reading your political posts though, I think it's fantastic that you're so knowledgable about all of this stuff. I've learned a lot from you!

I can't wait till this election is over so that I can stop thinking about it and focus on other things. It's funny how our blogs went so political. I won't know what to post once this is all over?! Thanks for all your help in speaking out.
