There is no sleep for me tonight!

There were a lot of fun parties to go to tonight but I knew I couldn't be in public. I was either going to experience such crushing disappointment that I wouldn't be able to function or I was going to experience overwhelming joy and pride.

And I was right. I'm so excited and happy and I've been crying and crying. Every time they show our new president and I see the bright, thoughtful, gentle man he is and who I'm so proud to have represent us and then every story someone shares of what this historic election means to them makes me just lose it. Flat out bawling. I'm pathetic.

I know I'm happy because I can't wait to see what the candidate will do in office. I believe the qualities and talent is there for a great leader. But it is hard not to be excited and happy that we broke a barrier. Such a lousy, mean, stupid, and unfair barrier. What else can we accomplish?

And doggonit if they don't stop showing people crying I'm never gonna stop!

Yegads. I am hopeful for the first time in years. And I feel like we can look the rest of the world in the eye now.
