Okay, if you're seeing this blog for the first time, I'm sure you'd assume that I'm a) American and b) a person with too much time on my hands. Well, you'd be wrong on both counts. But, for some reason I, and a lot of other Canadians, are as excited about this day as only the most politically-obsessed of Americans are. While I don't subscribe to the "America is the centre of the universe" view, I do, obviously feel that when things have the potential to be really good down there, that goodness will spread around the world.

We're going to a CNN watching party tonight and I made these delicious Obamacakes. In fact, I've started referring to Aaron as "Obamacakes" as a term of affection. I think I'm going crazy. I'm glad this is all going to be over in just a few short hours (four hours and 43 minutes, according to CNN).

YOU'RE going crazy? If my husband survives this without having a coronary, I will be amazed. :) I've heard that by 11pm EST, we can be assured of the results. The suspense is killin me! xo

as a canadian living in the u.s.a. i have never had an election feel like this one. i have rejected the notion that i would ever be a u.s. citizen under the current regime. but now. perhaps. and so so so very glad my girls are seeing this change. (because there will be change. and i am full of HOPE!)
your gwctd reminder was perfect! thank you!
