Thank you, everyone, for all the kind thoughts, emails, messages and good wishes you sent during our recent adventure. We're still getting things sorted at home. I think it will take a while for my daughters to settle down again. They found the whole experience somewhat traumatic. It felt like every time I looked at my eldest girl, she had tears running down her face. Even after we moved into a hotel last Wednesday, it took several days for her to smile.
Mind you, in the great scheme of things, what we went through was a minor inconvenience compared to the loss and heartache some folks suffered (and in many cases, are still going through). My heart goes out to everyone who lost their home or is still without power
Since today's election day here in the US, today's post is a tongue-in-cheek word from a former veteran of American politics.
I don't know about you, but I'm looking forward to being able to watch TV or go on facebook without seeing nasty political ads or rants about one side or the other.
Have a great day, and as they say in Chicago: 'Vote early, and vote often!'
