Well, except when Hillary Clinton keeps "tearing up" a few days before critical primaries. Why does she keep doing that? She drives me nuts on a good day, and when she cries and wears bright yellow pants suits... yuck. And I don't like that McCain is doing so well. The most pressing issues are the economy and Iraq and I honestly don't trust him with either one.
I do, however, like that Giuliani and Edwards dropped out. Thank goodness. They were both driving me crazy too. Edwards was a good enough guy, just not right for this contest. And they didn't add any drama to the election. Who needs a boring and ill-qualified candidate?
Anyway, that leaves Obama, Romney, and Huckabee. I fully trust all three, although politically, of course, I agree most with the religious two. Obama is a smooth talker and a great leader but I'm still not totally sure about his stance on a lot of issues. But I admit, he'd make a decent president. Romney is smart and respectable but a little stiff and awkward. And Huckabee is just downright cool, but I realize doesn't have a prayer (if I can say that about a preacher-man).
I've been reading my News.week magazines like crazy (although I'm admittedly a little behind), I've been watching election coverage on TV (although I really wish we got the cable news channels), and I've been reading online as much as possible. Oh, who needs writers when there is election coverage! Kind of reminds me of a situation during the last election. I was part of a bunko club and the monthly game night fell on the night of one of the debates between Bush and Kerry. No kidding, I found myself a substitute for the game so I wouldn't have to miss the debate. What a dork, I know.

Buddy is so hilarious, but SUCH a smart-mouth. That kid...
There's an indoor fieldhouse in town which is really great when it's raining. Like it has been here for the past two months straight. Anway, it's in a hard-to-find location in a residential neighborhood and I hadn't been in a good year. So the first time I went this winter I had some trouble finding it. Eventually we found our way. Well the next time we went, I set out to go a different way. Buddy got all concerned that I was taking him somewhere else. I reassured him that we were going to the fieldhouse, I was just going a different way. He said, "Will you get lost this time?" I told him I knew right where I was going. He replied, "Well, imagine that."
On Sunday during church Buddy leaned over and whispered, "I wish I could be a daddy." I asked him why, assuming he was going to say something cute and touching since a good friend just finished blessing his newborn daughter -- and Buddy has been really curious about the priesthood. Nope. He said, "Because daddies always yell at their kids during church."
And then this morning I was rushing around trying to get everybody ready to go to the library for story time. Buddy was finishing breakfast and I was trying to locate the two movies that were due at the library. Buddy has this strange obsession with staring at the cases of DVD's. He re-plays the movie in his mind while he studies the pictures. Anyway, I had looked everywhere, including the playroom which is where Buddy insisted they were. We were running late, I had a headache, and I was pretty much in a bad mood about the whole thing. Buddy kept telling me, "As soon as I'm done with my breakfast, I'll get them." I kept telling him that I'd looked a hundred times in the playroom and the movies weren't there. "Mom! I told you. I'd find them when I'm done. IT'S NOT THAT HARD!"
For the record, he couldn't find them either. So we renewed them, which made him happy in the long-run.
* * *I want to freeze time. My baby is 2 months old today and I am so depressed. I want him to stay just like he is for another few months and THEN he can grow up. Ah, he is just perfect.
Spell check isn't working. Sorry if there are misspellings...
