After months of putting off the seemingly painful process, I mailed out my request for an absentee ballot. I’m excited to see how the whole “absentee” thing works, since it’s my first time ever doing it. I felt so patriotic walking to the post office holding my paper, telling them I needed a registered envelope for my very important document, so that I could vote for either McCain-san or Obama-san. The whole thing was kind of surreal. The process was not nearly as painful as I thought, and I almost missed the recommended time-line for submitting it. I’m safe by about a week, so things should go well.
Sorry for not posting anything a little more exciting…it’s been a dull week and alas, I have weekly email updates, a handwritten journal, this blog, a blog on Revelife, AND Facebook. Things might get lost in the shuffle. I apologize, I will try to do better. Consider myself chastised.
