>We’re really doing this.

November 5, 2008 § 2 Comments

My friend, Vanessa is passionate and wise, an amazing cook and hostess. Note the homemade apple pie.

Vanessa invited us into her home to collectively writhe/panic in the revealing hours of Election Night.

A list of activities to attempt to subside anxiety (NOTHING WORKED!): eating, pacing, curling into a ball, hula hooping, drinking, encouraging a cat to jump through a hula hoop, eating, calling family members and friends in other states, mocking the people on television, texting, eating, watching others pace, telling stories, crying, laughing, binging, taking pictures, searching for the perfect ringtone, washing dishes, berating James.

Joseph traveled all the way from teaching in New Jersey to be with us; he held my hand the whole time.

And then…the future.

Blissed out, hopefully for a long, long time.
