1. I'm significantly worried about homeschooling as we know it in this country. B.O. has not exactly come out "against" homeschooling...but, he's not really come out "for" it either. There is no official statement, however, there is this (h/t to the SpunkyHomeSchooler). That being said,
I believe that the good news here is that...he won't have time to deal with this homeschooling issue as he will be very busy having unilateral talks (without conditions) with the likes of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (Iran), Kim Jong Il (North Korea), Fidel Castro, et al (Cuba), Hugo Chavez (Venezuela), Bashar al-Assad (Syria),

4. Currently, Dan and I each work part time. We thought this was the best scenario for our family since we couldn't (can't) really afford for one of us to stay home full time and so that our children did not have to go to day care. In addition, they get to spend quality time with both of us. Technically, I work for our medical
I know that there is other good news out there if Obama becomes president but I really don't want you (or me) getting too excited because there is always the chance that he won't win.
So, please keep a stiff upper lip and hang in there because all is not lost....there are some things we can look forward to come January 20th.

****I think I might have gotten up on the wrong side of the bed today! Either that or I just really have a bad attitude. I apologize for the "tongue and cheek" nature of this post. I think all this election stuff has really done a number on me. Hopefully, I'll be back to normal soon...just in time for my next chemo treatment on Thursday****
