Delusional and exhausted
It has been busy, busy, busy. As you know I am the Electoral Officer for our town. And up until today I have operated under the delusion that I had a level of control. But then today at precisely 12:01pm as the first Advance Poll opened and I watched the first ballot being placed in the box, I realized that it was now out of my control. Seriously, my stomach did a little flip. Lol. For a control freak like me it is always hard to watch that first one. Now I have to place my trust in the people I have hired to work in the various polling stations. (another hard part for a control freak)
The last few days have been a flurry of final preparations. Lots of long hours and then trying to sleep as your mind spins. See, I am a worry-wart by nature. But generally that is what makes me so well prepared. Fingers crossed. There is one more Advance Poll on Tuesday and then Election day is next Saturday.
So my posts and comments will be sparse for the next week. I will be back to normal in a week. But for now its good night - I'm exhausted.
