    I think I would love the thrill of just being in the atmosphere sounds exciting but nerve racking at the same time lol

    It has been a blessing for us to have a large family. We grew from newlyweds to having 9 children in 11 years. Goodbye to spectator sports (unless it’s Mom and Dad on the sidelines of the soccer games), mindless TV, and the opportunity to get too wrapped up in following election coverage. That seems to have been a second blessing.

    Regardless of the importance of the election or which side you supported, for most of us, once you cast your vote there is not much left except an almost voyeuristic fascination with following the high drama on the news media.

    We tuned in for about an hour after we put the little ones down, but I did not have the stamina I had in 2000 to stay up all night for the final results. Honestly, after the vote I felt like an outsider watching others scurry around and fuss over numbers and predictions. I wonder if we as Americans are or will be eventually jaded from all the hype and spin.

    Elections are important, but it seems that the coverage has gotten so over the top it has become trite and boring. I hope it does not distract voters from the real issues.
