We came; we saw; we kicked their a$$. I am happy.
I have spent countless hours the past few months working toward this night and this outcome. I am overjoyed. That said, I've missed y'all but y'all can't begin to realize the pressure that we were under. It was tough but we made it. We also showed some D.C. types that we we know how to play hard ball and deliver the goods here in the heart of it all.
I just got home from our team's "watch party" at the lovely home of our hostess with the mostest -- Mel who prepared us a glorious feast and adult libations. There were hugs all around when Ohio went blue and even more when our county went blue. Mission accomplished!!!
I learned that one of Mel's best friends is an old friend of mine as is her husband (who is battling cancer) and I made sure that she had my phone numbers if she wanted to talk. I also got to know a few other of our team members better and that was fun as well..
Tomorrow. I'm heading to HQ to see my gals: Brittany, Steph, Morgan, Jess, and Norrie i.e., the organizers who kept us all on task. These lovely and intelligent young ladies are harbingers of the future of this country and trust me when I tell you that our future is bright if these ladies are in charge.
I am happy. I learned a lot, met some wonderful people, and hopefully preserved or laid the foundation for positive change in this country . . . until the next time we're under attack.
I need a rest but I'm going to try to get around to visit and get back to blogging asap.
