Monday night I was actually on the computer researching how many registered voters there are in Missouri and how many people were expected to come out and vote so I could calculate how many votes we needed. :) I promised myself I would not get down about the results until the final tally because I knew in my heart of hearts that it was a battle.
Yesterday I also stood outside my polling place and handed out literature while I had my puppy mill girl, Jingle, with me Another woman was stumping for Ed Martin who came out heatedly against Prop B. She had all sorts of anti Prop B literature with her, but you know what? She had never once read the proposition. I was offended by that and I was also offended that this woman from North County came to MY South City polling place to spew her lies. Only one person was nasty to me when I tried to hand literature to him - it was this old man who said he was a "judge." When I tried to give him the literature he said "NO, HELL NO!" What an ass .... it's times like this where I hate always taking the high road. Sometimes it is just so not satisfying to be the better person. But, I knew as a representative of the proposition I couldn't do anything but smile and walk away. AARRGGHH Oh well, I hadn't voted yet so I went ahead and voted "no" for every male judge up for re election. Boy I showed him, didn't I? ha
When I went to bed last night, the results were pretty close and Prop B was losing. Everyone on TV was giving it a death sentence. Maybe it was lucky I've got a gnarly sinus infection so I'd rather sleep than get all worked up. But I wasn't really too stressed about it. I reminded myself to wait until all the precincts had reported. ;) But around midnight, it was so weird - Suzie came in and woke me up to get in my bed. She usually does this around 2, so I figured this was a "sign" to check out the vote and sure enough - we were actually up to 51% "YES" with only 4% not reporting. So, to wake up this morning to 52% - what more can I say but WOOHOO?!! And for all those naysayers who keep saying "It barely passed by 52% ... well that's what we call a simple majority BABY!" :)
Today was the day that both Burton and Bonham said goodbye to their little reproductive man parts ... as expected, Bonham is having a worse time. He actually was too hyper after his surgery so now he's very swollen and bruised. :( Burton is doing quite well, but I expected him to - he's the younger one. I need to give Bonham anti inflammatory and antibiotics for the next week and ice his "area" up in the morning and night.
