Super Tuesday/SEC Primaries Familial Panic

Younger Daughter called me shortly before lunchtime today and said, "Mommy!" (When daughters regress to "Mommy" I know that something not good will follow.)

She continued, "I'm sooooo stressed out!!!" (That didn't bode well, either.)

I asked, haltingly, "What's the matter?!?"

"There is no one I can vote for!!! And too many to vote against!!! I don't know what to do!!!"

Today is the Arkansas Primary Election Cha-cha-cha. Pepper and I did the early voting thing this year, so we're well beyond second and third guessing (until the results start trickling in tonight.) But Younger Daughter put it off until the actual day, leaving her all stressed out!!!

So, what's a Mommy to say? YD ultimately decided to hold her nose, throw up a little bit in her mouth, and vote the way her Daddy and I did. And our choice among the candidates didn't rhyme with rump, or much of anything else.

Heaven help us all; and, hooray for the red, white, and blue. Hopefully not too black-and-blue.


  1. Do you read CenTexTim? He writes some pretty interesting blogs. He is not a Trump fan, but today he posted this http://bergheimfollies.blogspot.com/2016/03/20-bill.html

    I didn't link that very well, but I'm headed off to school and don't have much time this morning. I, too, held my nose and voted yesterday, and I was okay with the outcome for OK.

  2. Haven't read it, but will try to check it out.

    OK did OK. So did MN. I just hope we all do, ultimately.
