Dear Everyone,

My Momma is taking me on an adventure today! We're flying to Idaho to see my Grandpa Pat, Gramma Linda, Gramma Shelley, and Poppa Tom. We're also going to see my Great-Grandma Flossie and cousins Abbie, Tyler, and Mahala. Grandpa Pat is turning 60 years old so we're going to help him celebrate, and we need to visit Momma's Uncle Frank who isn't feeling so well. I sure hope we have cake for Grandpa Pat! I love cake...mmmmmmm,gooooooooood.

I am so excited! I promised Momma I'd be a good boy on the big airplane, although I hope she knows there are never any guarantees in life. I saw her sneak some cool new things into the backpack though so as long as she plays with me, I'm sure I'll be a great traveler! I love airplanes, do they have wheels?? You know how much I love anything with wheels....

We will keep you all posted on the trip!

Obama Wins.

*Note the lack of enthusiasm by adding just a period, no exclamation point*

It should be no surprise that I am disappointed, saddened, heated, and even disgusted to the very core. But what might surprise you is that I'm not feeling that way toward the big O himself. I'm feeling that way toward my fellow Americans who actually believe that this man can steer our country. Some of you actually believe that he's capable of doing what he's promised. You're all high if you think you're going to have more money in the end, because that couldn't be further from the truth. And judging by the media coverage and the people they're interviewing, they are lining up right now for the big handout. Ugh....I could go on and on....but I'm too worked up to even think straight.

I can only hope that for my sake and for my family's sake, he doesn't leave me saying "I told you so" in just a couple of years. Although, that would feel really good....

I voted!

What a great feeling to live in a country where the people choose! Even if some of us choose opposite me, it's still a poweful feeling. Before I head off into a cleaning spree to keep myself occupied the rest of the day, I'd just like to state that no matter who wins this election, we still live in the best country in the world. Let's stop taking that for granted and live our lives the best way we know how. The President of the United States cannot determine what kind of person you are. YOU determine what kind of person you are, and that should start with being grateful and appreciative for all that we have in this beautiful country.

Go Vote!
