i am not for Obama

Barack Obama in 2004 responding to the question of why he was ruling out running for president in 2008:

"You know, I am a believer in knowing what you're doing when you apply for a job. And I think that if I were to seriously consider running on a national ticket, I would essentially have to start now, before having served a day in the Senate. Now, there are some people who might be comfortable doing that, but I'm not one of those people."

so many tears

Are you following Flotsam's blog?  She had twin babies recently, and lost the little boy.  Simone is still very sick and her latest updating has her fighting her way thru!

warning, you probably won't be able to read this without crying...

I did NOT KNOW that John Rich had a reality show!  It's called Gone Country and it's fabulous!  He takes artist from other genres of music and is giving them a chance to cut a country single.

We have Bobby Brown, Dee Schnieder (from Twisted Sister), Maureen that played Marsha Brady, Carnie Philips, Julio Iglesias JR., and some chick from American Idol.  Oh, and Sisqo (The Thong Song guy).  It's great, and who doesn't love John Rich?!  He is so...so....HIM.  He's a great artist with great insight.  I always have a lot more respect for artists that write their own music and he writes his own and a lot of the other country music out there.  It's worth tuning in!  And they show his awesome house, Gretchen Wilson's farm and who knows what else!

As of last night, we are sponsoring a child thru Compassion International.  I don't know if you've been reading around the blogosphere, but they sent some bloggers there to meet the children that they sponsor.  I am awed and humbled by what they've experience and written about.  I want to make a difference ( a post coming soon about the differences/changes going on around my house!  It's big stuff for us!)...and my way to make a difference is to sponsor a child.  At least that's where I'm starting, no telling what'll come next!

So.  Someone forgot they needed some work done for a big, executive level meeting on Monday (yes, the holiday).  Of course, they need the work done whether I have enough time to do it or not.  It still has to be done.  So, because some "person" forgot to tell anyone they needed this work done, and it's for something important, I have to get 10 of these items done by Monday.  And my husband is out of town, so I have three kids for three days straight and am supposed to get all this work done?  I think the "person" who did the forgetting should come to MY HOUSE all weekend and watch the kids while I do the work THEY forgot to tell anyone they needed.

I HATE it when someone else's problems become MY problems.  Fuck.

Fwd: no school today!

we've had an ice storm!  I'm waiting to let Son go out and slip and slide around!

and so it is...

Hubby has to go on another business trip, again.  Man, we all hate it when he has to go away!l  But it's so much easier to schedule for me only working part time than full time.  Tons easier.

BabyJ had her 9 month checkup.  She is OVER the 100 percentile in height.  She is quite tall.  And 60% on weight, so tall and thin.  Like the supermodel/doctor she's going to be.  Or a life-size Disney princess!

BabyT had his 2 year checkup.  He's also OVER the 100 percentile.  At the 2 year appt, they give you the future height estimate.  He is on track to be 6' 3.5 inches tall - GOLLY.  Son is to be 6' about, so looks like I will be the short one in the family again as soon as they are teenagers!

and he thought I was kidding.

The OB did, when I asked him what I could do about my what-appears-to-be-permanent mommy-belly.  Seriously, after three kids, I expected my tummy back?  When TWO of the children were big (and one of them GIGANTIC)?  Apparently this was funny to ask.  I, however, didn't think it was funny.

It is NOT fun to be told that, well, your abdominal wall is just shot and that there is one way to fix it --> tummy tuck.  Exercise, which helps, isn't going to fix it (duh, I knew that, but I did think it would help more than it has).
