Now That the Elections are Over...

I miss them! I'm beginning to realize now how energized I felt during the elections. Politics always get a bad rap, but I think political discussions can truly provide some of the most stimulating conversation. I soaked up my newsweek every week, checked politico.com for news, and laughed my head off at John Stewart's take on the campaign. Plus, I was engaged - I wanted to be informed and I looked forward to voting. Now it feels like the vacation that's left after Christmas. I got to the huge gift I wanted, but now it's old news. And the fallout from Proposition 8 is beginning to feel like the painful return to school after lounging around and playing in the snow for 2 weeks! Clearly, I need to get engaged in something new that stimulates my passion and drive to make a difference.

So true...I'm having a hard time shifting gears too...even though I was really ready for it to be "over".

pretty soon you will have a baby and that will stimulate your passion and drive to make a difference.

I'm sorry for your loss. :) I'd try to alleviate the pain by sending you some Obama-styled cupcakes froma a cupcake bakery I love, but they don't ship. :(
