I took an unscheduled blog break.  We have been campaigning for a year, and the election was over this past Tuesday, the 20th.  My sweetheart won, but I had no idea what a toll it had all taken on me until it was over.  I ran around on nervous energy for a few days, and then I hit the wall and collapsed!  Politics are not for me.  This was an excruciating roller coaster ride, and I am so thankful to be off of it.
I’m afraid that the campaign and the election sucked some of the brain cells out of my head, and I didn’t have many to begin with.
I’ve been wandering around in a daze since election night. 
I am so thankful that we had wonderful people working with us during this campaign.  Were it not for them, I know I would have lost my mind. (That would be even worse than just losing some of my brain cells!)
Hopefully, I will regain some brain cells and be back to full blogging soon.  will-return[1]
I just wanted to check in and let you know that I may have forgotten everything else I once knew, but I haven’t forgotten my blog or the wonderful people who read it.  laurie

So happy for you and your husband. What a big milestone in your lives! I can well imagine how intense it all was. Good thing you've reached the end of the tunnel. Hopefully now you can breathe and enjoy!

I honestly don't know how politicians families do it. It's so much work, and on top of it people can be serious jerks.

I'm glad that my candidate won! Yes, I know I don't have a clue about him or the race. I just know that anyone chosen by you would have to be my cup of tea. After all, I like everything else you choose...

Rest up. You will feel better in no time. (I hope.) I sure wish all my favorite bloggers would be blogging the way they used to.

I am so happy he won! Congratulations! I bet it is grueling, I agree, don't know how people do it over and over! Must be in their blood.
Rest up!
