Wedding 2008

It's over. The wedding of the decade happened and it was a fantastic event. The weather held and the ceremony was outside. It was beautiful. The vows were meaningful and the bride and groom a glow in their love. The reception was wonderful. The food was great, the DJ was great and the servers were the best. I have the most fabulous network of women who step up when needed. I hired Girl Scouts and their leaders to help setup, serve, bus and tear down. This left me, mother of the bride, the opportunity to enjoy this special day. It was the best wedding I have ever been to and it was worth all the money. We will remember that day forever.

Election 2008

Okay, its an election year. We will get a new president. This will be good. Who will it be? Emotions are tense. Everyone has an opinion. I'm feeling pressured to take a stand. Personally I'm not that concerned about it. My life is good. I have a house, kids, husband, a steady income from that husband. I do feel like the current administration let us down. I'm rather un-republican more than I'm pro-democrat. I don't think the republicans did a good job controlling GWB and for that reason I think they need to be booted. But if McCain beats out Obama, well, I don't think I'll loose any sleep over it. It's a very wishy washy attitude and I probably should care more, but I don't. I find the whole process of campaigning to be tedious and a waste of money. If a candidate announced that they were going to forgo the TV spots and spend the money on the homeless or at food banks, then I might take more of an interest.

I'm just a smug American. Safe in my freedoms and comforts brought to me by those who spend the time following the issues and those in office. Safe in my freedom to write what I feel without free of prosecution. Me, Smug and American.

This must be love

My husband had a colonoscopy yesterday. He had to drink this "drano" koolaid the night before to clean him out for the photo shoot. He was a bit nervous about having a camera up his butt...who wouldn't? He was so funny afterwards. He doesn't remember any of the time spent after they told him he would start feeling drowsy until coming home in the car. He doesn't remember the doctor telling him everyone looked good, getting dressed, asking me when we were going to talk to the doctor, getting into the car, and stopping for teriyaki. He said they told him he wouldn't remember much so he wasn't surprized. I was a little weirded out though as I gone with my sister last year for the same thing and she remembered everything.

The doctor said that between the CT scan and the colonoscopy, everything looked good and to come back in 10 years. Just make sure you eat lots of fiber (that's what they tell everyone anyway).

Nothing looked like cancer, so that's good too.

I love Rob so much and would hate to have anything happen to him.
