I woke up 1 1/2 hours earlier than usual to vote this morning. I've voted before, but only by absentee ballot...this was my first time waiting in line and getting my "I Voted" sticker. Everything went really smoothly; I brought a book, and 4 forms of identification (you never know!) There were 2 impatient little girls behind me waiting in line with their mom. The mom was helping one of the girls read "D is for Democratic Party...R is for Republican Party..." and one girl jumped ahead to say "L is for Library Party!" Almost.
After I rocked the vote, I went to McDonald's. McDonald's breakfast reminds me of fun times...as a kid, if we were getting a sausage mcmuffin (no egg) from McDonald's, that meant we were up earlier than usual and probably doing something awesome like driving to Portland to catch a flight (and we would then get stuck in traffic and always ended up running to the gate...but at least our tummies weren't hungry!) Today I was up earlier than usual and doing something awesome, so I treated myself. After I took this insanely dorky picture, I realized the people on the bag were also holding out a camera to take photos of themselves. Yup.
