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."
From Rachel Lucas.
warning, you probably won't be able to read this without crying...
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!

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