A very brief update, because I am exhausted. I wrote this last night as the returns were winding down.
This was a rough night, but I’m starting to be able to feel my face again.
Also, my little baby is such a sweet girl. I was trying to be cool, but I think she figured me out. She kept petting my face. (I’m giving myself until tomorrow afternoon before I start worrying that having an anxious mother is ruining her.)
In short: I’m sad, but not surprised, about Beto and the Senate, hugely relieved about the House, and ready for sleep. Hold your loved ones close.
