Good things:

-New president = good thing for everyone and not just the U.S

-first female senator from New Hampshire as [ profile] averygoodun pointed out

-my congresswoman was re-elected

Not so good thing:

-Hubby lost his election by 2,056 votes. He worked incredibly hard for the over 10,000 votes he did receive. Knocking on doors in almost half of the city and one other town to meet people and introduce himself took a tremendous amount of time and effort. Unfortunately he hardly has time to process this as he just left for a three day conference up north for work. He was sounding somewhat optimistic about doing it again in two years, though.

It's going to take some getting used to having him home every weekend. He's been campaigning for months and I fear we're used to him being out and about or just busy with stuff. It will be very good for the boys to spend some time with just their dad and I'm trying to find time for a "date night" or even an afternoon movie and then dinner. I'm just glad it's over for now.

Oh, I'm sorry. That was pretty close, though.

I hope that having him around again will be very good.

Thank you. It was a good race and if he decides to try for alderman in '09 instead of the school board again, he'll be up against the same person.

It will be very good to have him around more, especially with the holidays coming up.

A very long time ago, my dad lost re-election to the local school board (where he had been serving as their very first Democrat ever) by just a handful of votes, so I feel your pain!

~hugs you both~

Ah, so you know how it is. Thank you. Hubby is actually up for re-election of his school board position next year. :) He's served for five years on the board so far.

Hugs back. Thanks so much. Take care.

Sorry about Mr. Cck; you both must be exhausted. Perhaps after the conference you'll have a chance for post-election relaxation?

Thank you. Perhaps, yes. After the sign retrieval, the thank you letters, scouts this weekend..... Maybe by the time his 40th b-day rolls around in mid Decemeber.

Take care of yourself and your baby girls!
