It's Election Day here in the USA, and all over the country, people are reminding their friends and loved ones to go vote. At my house, we have a different tradition: My husband and I very carefully mention nothing about the election until after the polls close, each hoping the other will forget to vote. We have never supported the same candidate for president, and we both tend to vote along our different party lines in other elections as well.

He likes to vote on the way to work, and as I don't work on Election Day, I like to go a bit later in the morning when lines are shorter. I saw in the polling book that he'd already voted today, so my hopes--slim as they were--that he'd forget to vote were dashed.

Wouldn't it be nice if Republicans all across the country simply forgot to vote today? Yeah, I don't think it very likely either.

So many people have said that they can't wait until the day after Election Day: no more political ads on TV, no more rebo-calls from politician's campaigns, etc. I'm only looking forward to tomorrow if President Obama wins; my stomach is in knots until then.

I want Obama to win, too! My husband thinks he will, but I really have no idea what's going to happen.

My very Republican brother visited me last week. He said, very confidently, "Looks like Romney's gonna win. How do you feel about that?"

My reply, "I hope not. God, I hope not."
