Thank you, Colin Powell

FINALLY, somebody said it. What if Obama were a Muslim (he's not, of course)?? What would be so terribly awful about it? It makes me SO angry that the response is that he's a good Christian, not a Muslim.

So, yes, thank you, Colin Powell. You have no idea the amount of respect I just gained for you. My family is not a bunch of terrorists and scary just because we're Muslim. I may not be a practicing Muslim, but apparently I am a terrifying person to some people.

Elite athletes are cool, but we want mediocre to run our country. Take that, elite media!

Makes me sick when I think about it.

Wish he were home...

It's amazing how much longer two weeks is than 4 days. I feel like Rob has been gone forever. I wish he were coming home today. Just two days to go... but keeping busy is not doing as good a job of keeping me distracted as usual. I just keep thinking, I wish he were on his way home now.

And to continue with the depressing thoughts: I have to say, I am really sick of this administration. I really, really hope that Obama wins. I really don't understand how ANYBODY could choose to vote for McSame. Then again, Americans actually managed to re-elect Bush in 2004. That makes me feel like anything is possible. Sadly, that is not a positive statement in this case.

I've been thinking though... why in the world is Obama running? There is NO way that I would want the job of attempting to repair the horrendous damage accomplished in the last 8 years. Call me lazy, but it seriously seems overwhelming. Then again, things are falling more and more apart as the selfish decisions of this administration's work comes to fruition. Who knows if he had to choose today if he wanted to run, if he would still want to. Probably. They're all politicians in the end. I figure if you really want to be President of the US, the desire for power has to motivate you to some extent.

Gee! Aren't I Ms. Optimistic today?

Chicken Fried Bacon

We're going to a bar tonight that serves chicken fried bacon, with gravy of course! I have to admit that I am intrigued. I do plan on eating other things, so hopefully the rest of their stuff is just as exciting, but hopefully healthier. :)

Rob is having a "male baby shower" thrown for him. This involves an overnight rafting trip, lots of booze (I believe), and no gifts. I'm not sure the term applies. At least, they're not going to a strip club, as had been joked around a few times. If they want to deal with boobs, do us a favor and buy the breast pump. haha. Seriously though, I would not have been happy with that. Something about me getting big and not feeling super attractive would make it rather upsetting for Rob to feel that that was the time to go check out strippers. Not cool. I hope he and the boys have fun though... it will be his last month before daddyhood hits hard. I feel like I'm in mommyhood already, as I would not have been able to enjoy a baby shower like that anyhow. No rafting or boozing for me... not that there won't be post-baby, still though.... Maybe I'll host a sleep over. We can do masks and stuff, watch a chick flick, and bake cookies. It also falls over the last weekend before my mom arrives, a.ka. the weekend before about 25 years of no more alone time starts. Kind of scary.

Sick + pregnant = very lazy. I did do a lot of cleaning today though. I just need to fold the laundry, and I don't have _much_ to feel guilty about.

Going to pre-natal yoga for the first time tonight. I am looking forward to it.

Rob gets home tomorrow night, so I'm planning meals for the week. It's kind of exciting to not just cook for me. I think I'll make chicken soup for myself tonight...
