Happy Thanksgiving!

This year I am thankful for:

Mom - for your friendship, for our great times together, and your turkey cookin' skills
Dad - for your advice, sense of family and for your love
My kids - who make my life hectic and happy and for showing me unconditional love
My extended family - for always being there to help, to laugh with and to love
Matt - for your support, for loving me through thick and thin and for being the worlds greatest dad.

Even though times are tough right now, I have a lot to be thankful for.

200th Post: More Politics

I can't believe I am on my 200th post.

Did you check out my stats for my election post? So many hits, for one word. That was my easiest post ever, but obviously the most interesting. Whatever.

What will be interesting is our political lives in the coming months and years. The Republicans will be searching for, or masterminding the creation of, a super-republican who will rise from the ashes in the next four years, chanting the mantra of Reagan Conservatism! Bring back the religion, capitalism, patriotism, individualism, and optimism!!

The dems have finally found their messiah, but the conservatives will be waiting for him to slip up, to fail in providing the "hope" for which he was elected. The rest of the country will have no one to blame if he does fail, well except for the 57,753,783 people who didn't vote for him. We will be saying "I told you so," 'til the cows come home. Maybe it is sort of a relief in a way for the will no longer be "our fault". How will the new savior ever live up to his expectations? How long before he will be blamed by his own party? Somehow this will come back to be the fault of the damn Republicans or rich white people. You wait.

I mean, when Obama fails to do this...what will happen?

Or fulfill all this (see Jake Tapper's story here)?
Will there be an uprising in the streets?

Let the countdown begin...

P.S. Obama is seriously considering Jennifer Granholm as a member of his administration? Does he know she is the governor of Michigan, known for its very own "state recession", the highest unemployment in the land, the failing auto industry, and the most homes lost to foreclosure? That is a great idea! Then maybe we can get a new governor to clean up her mess.

Halloween 2009

This Halloween the kids dressed as the Sparkling Spider Witch, a Clone Trooper
and a Vietnam-era Army Soldier. We celebrated with our good friends,
Ella, the scary cheerleader and Gage, who was Aniken.
