Long Week

I thought the election would never end. Thank god that the mailings, commercials and all that crap is over. I think there should be a limit placed on how early campaiging can begin. A big hooray that Palin will go home. Just maybe she’ll now practice some ‘traditional family values’ and raise her kids. I just don’t get absentee parenting by choice. It’s not that I’m sexist, I just think there should be consistensy in parenting. And there was no way she could be a ‘mom’ as the VP. She has a baby for christs sake! I know that Obama won’t exactly be available for his kids, which is sad, but I don’t honestly think that will be a huge change for them.

We’ve been having stormy weather all week, and the other night we had our first power outage of the season. That same night Sunny broke her collar and took off on a run. Dark, rainy,windy. She got into something, which caused her to have violent sneezing attacks that lasted all night long. A trip to the vet next day found nothing wrong, thank goodness, and she’s all better. Whew! Its so horrible watching a child or an aanimal in distress.
It looks like Richard’s knee was an attack of pseudogout. Its better, kind of, but yesterday he went in and got a shot to alleviate some other pain in there. Surgery will likely be in the future, due to a torn miniscus inside I think. bleh

The fearmongering just won’t end. Is it really here to stay? Cripes, there was a hideous ad that we saw for a child locator, which works when you just can’t watch your kid for that second when the perp swoops down to get ’em. ( it works from a few hundred feet away to within one inch! – is that in case the kid is on the other side of the tree hiding from you????)They want us to believe that the Big Brother thing is just plain normal – you need to be able to spy on your kids, the nanny, cars running red lights, citizens on public streets, parking lots, etc. Those red light cameras are a revenue generator, nothing more. I’ve never seen one placed in an intersection that has a high rate of accidents. This crap makes me nuts.  I kind of like my privacy, and anonymity thank you.

We are now starting the waiting game. We’ve delivered things to a couple banks, and only time will tell if this will pan out. Just maybe now I can begin catch up on all things neglected while we’ve been focusing on this stuff. There is still information to gather, but only a little compared to what we’ve collected over the past couple months.  I think the biggest thing that may stand in the way would be this economy. Everything is so bleak out there. 

Right now I’m not liking the fact that to find a new pair of jeans, or shoes, or ?? I need to go to the Big City. Some things you gotta try on. The nearest shopping options are Fred Meyer and JC Penney. Swell. Living in the country has limitations sometimes.
