Just dropped of the last of the lit, supplies, and paperwork to the Obama office. It feels good to finally catch up on my sleep, and to get 12 large boxes out of my car but it felt sad to say goodbye to something that’s been a fairly large part of my life for so many months. There were so many great parts of the campaign its hard to know what I’ll miss most. Certainly, I’ll miss being part of something outside of my own life; something so large and so important. In my own, very small way, I feel I made a difference. I feel I did something to leave the country a better place for my kids. It’s pretty much impossible to match that feeling.
I also had the opportunity to meet and work with some amazing people. Their energy, dedication and enthusiasm were inspiring. In addition they were fun and smart and made boring tasks, and long days fly by. I will miss them all.
Hard to believe but not everyone I know follows me on twitter. So here are a few of my tweets from the campaign. Newest first, then back in time.
