I spent election day with a lump in my stomach. Living in Houston, Texas, where Obama yard signs were stolen on a regular basis, I just couldn't imagine that the US could elect Obama. Watching the returns, I felt a bit hopeful, and then after they announced Ohio, my husband started celebrating, and my dad called, but I still didn't believe it.
The day after the election I kept getting teary-eyed with happiness. I feel as if I'm still coasting on the good feelings. I know he's got a lot of work to do, but I'm just so, so happy.
