How Did I Miss This?

How is it that I am just finding this video today? Where have I been?

"Wuz Up?! 8 Years Later"


I found this at Martinis For Two via Scary Mommy. Diane of MFT is having a Global World-Wide Virtual post-Election Party. (Heck! You know I'm all about a Virtual party! I need to invite her to the next Virtual GNO.)
She's helping me feel more connected since I'm just here in my little house, by myself while my girls are at school, watching CNN and reliving the moments. My oldest is 10 and she understands, some what, the importance of having someone in office who holds the same political beliefs as her parents. My youngest is 7 and she just doesn't get our excitement at all.
Last night my mom and sister were over. We had our champagne and screamed our heads off! My girls kept looking at us then ran in the other room with their hands over their ears. But when it came time for Barack Obama's speech my girls sat down to listen and watch. I had tears. So many tears and a perma-smile! This is real!
Go check out the party at Martinis For Two!

  8. I've never felt so sure of my son's future than I do right now. I've never felt so proud to be an American, you know... after 8 long years of down right embarassment. We DO have voices, and they WERE heard!
