On the Ride to School...

"Hey mom, did you know that I'm friends with two fifth graders?"

"No, that sounds pretty cool though."

"Yeah, and then there are these two other fifth graders- who are totally my arch nemesis."

I then realized that I'm only a year and a half away from being a mother to an actual fifth grader and I gave myself a heart attack and died. The end.

God Bless Keith Olbermann. That is all.

Olbermann's special comment on the passing of Prop 8 in California. Very eloquent.

It's a New Dawn, It's a New Day, And I'm Feeling...Sick.

I generally tend to deny it when I'm sick and do something stupid like run 5 miles in the cold or paint the living room but today I'm on the couch in my slippers doing some online Christmas shopping. Yay! I may be married to to a Grinch but I love Christmas and you can't stop me. I've got a pile of new cookie recipes to try and maybe if I'm good then Santa will put a Kitchen Aid mixer in my stocking. Ava's birthday is coming up in a few weeks and I've already got her party booked at the gymnastics gym and I'll be starting on her video shortly. Five. Years. Old. Not only do I not have babies anymore, but I don't even have toddlers. They are both gigantic. (Hopefully gigantic enough to enjoy a trip to Washington D.C. because we are headed there for all the inauguration festivities in January!) These past two weeks since the election have been interesting since I haven't spent hours a day immersed in political commentary and polling data. Welcome back to the regular world I guess- a grey, sunless world where night falls at 4:30. I'm still following some disputed Senate races (hello Minnesota, Alaska and Georgia!) and I'm pretty steamed about Prop 8 in California but I'm at leat trying to take a little break from politics and focus on more light-hearted things for the time being. Bring on the turkey! My new longer distance running regimen really makes me crave the carbs.

All Voted Up.


(I actually voted early last week but here it is anyway.) GOTV people!

I woke up this morning and immediately started humming this song:

I Stole This Photo Off Steph's Blog Because I Love It.


Have I mentioned how restless I am today? I'm totally shirking all responsibilities and killing time on the internet. I'm not afraid to admit it either.

I. Can't. Wait.

I'm re-posting this video from the primary season just because it makes me feel all warm and tingly.

I posted this entry on July 28, 2004. What an amazing road it's been since then!
