All I can say is, thank God it happened. We need this change, badly. I am sure that most of my family will now disown me for publicly speaking out about my opinion on this election, but I've done worse things.

For those who are afraid that Obama is secretly evil and is plotting bad things, remember the system of checks and balances that we have in place. Each of the three branches of government is there to ensure that neither of the others gets too powerful. Congress and the Supreme Court won't let Obama do anything too wild.

On a completely different note, I will be staying home from work tomorrow with a sick baby. She was cranky all day, and threw up this evening. She went to bed at 6:30, and I haven't heard from her since. I am sure she won't make it through the night, though. Tomorrow, Darren actually has to go into Houston for the first time in a couple of weeks, so I will lose 6 of my 12 hours of work this week. I miss my teacher salary right now, especially with the upcoming holidays. Presents will be inexpensive this year!

My 14-year-old cat has been diagnosed with hyperthyroidism, so Darren has to go to a veterinary pharmacy in Houston tomorrow and pick up his thyroid medicine. It's an ointment that we rub on his ears. The vet is worried that treating his thyroid will cause him to go into kidney failure, so we have him on a low protein diet that will be easier on his kidneys. So far, his kidney and liver functions look good, and he'll have blood work done again in 60 days. Doing cat dissection the past couple of weeks has really gotten to me, and I hope that Chance will be with us for at least a few more years.

Beddy-bye time...
