Oh sure there are things that I could blog about.
Joe Biden not being that surprising to me, for one. After all, Obama is being hit on lack of experience. Objective: find someone with experience. However, there has to be something a little more between no experience and a total Washington insider. The Republicans criticizing this though is a bit like the pot calling the kettle black. How long has McCain been in Washington? It may take me as long to count as the number of houses that he has. And did anybody REALLY expect Hillary to be the 2 spot? Obama and Clinton have Texas size egos. It's not just that Obama would not work with her, but she doesn't really want him either.
Also, Obama's venue tonight . . . cult of personality or being inclusive and bringing politics to the masses? Depends on what you want to believe.
Or I could talk about the Dude's 6 month check up, which went splendid. The ped was delighted with his progress and amazed at how curious the kid is. However, he hits himself in the head with his rattle all the time these days so I am not sure how smart he is.
I could also tell you about how I wrenched my back and raising my arm is pure agony. I actually have to get on my hands and knees to pick things off the floor. Bending is too painful.
There was also my Girl's Night with the Moms. We saw Mamma Mia. Cute, but seriously Pierce Brosnan, fire the person who told you that you can sing.
But I think the most important thing this week is that I bought plane tickets to go to South Carolina for Christmas. I have been a bit depressed and homesick and was convinced the trip wouldn't happen this year. However, we found a good deal and my mom offered to chip in. I am over the moon! Bad back and all.
