We were sitting in our Chicago apartment watching the results come in. A few states away, my brother and sister-in-law were anxiously awaiting the birth of their daughter. My mom was calling every hour with updates and the roller coaster election results coming in were making me insanely stressed out.
My niece finally arrived in the early hours of Wednesday, November 3. By that time on the election front it was looking like Bush was going to the white house.
It was a very good and very bad night.
Fast forward to today: Abigail just celebrated her fourth birthday and we are waiting (for what I am praying) is an Obama victory.
