One More

I really am not a political junkie but there is so much to say about the new president and about prop 8 and 102. We all need to pray for those who need our help!

"Barack Obama was not my choice, but he is my president. That is true of all Americans. For the last eight years, there has been an ongoing campaign of destruction meant to handicap and hobble the last president. I refuse to be part of an effort to do the same to the next president. Those who didn't vote for Barack Obama must set a higher standard of civility and citizenship than those who didn't vote for George W. Bush. In defeat, there must still be nobility."That doesn't mean silent servility. It doesn't mean differences and principles are ignored."But it does mean the new president gets a new chance. It means we all must pray for him and work with him to make our country stronger and safer and better."The last eight years have taught us what happens when you set out to destroy a presidency for political gain. You help your candidate, but you hurt your country. That pattern must not be followed with this new president. America must treat Barack Obama better than he treated George W. Bush."

The Election

I had to detach my self from the news for a while because there are so many things being said I felt I had scensory overload. I can appericiate the historic nature of this election even if I don't agree with all that happend. I did not vote for Obama but I don't feel that either canidate could turn things around with the economy. I think it is congress that needs a change it is mostly Democrat and maybe with a Democratic president people will see how bad things get vote for "change" real change not the kind that they think they are getting. I also know that as member of the latter day saint faith I need to stand by my president! It is neat to know that my childeren will know that I was part of an election that has such historical value. I hope for the best I can't focus on "this is the end" like I have heard so much of. I want to look to the future with joy and happiness.

Tagged 6 Quirks

If you ask Paul he calls my quirks my different personalities!

1. I hate feet yuck! don't touch mine don't touch me with yours and we can be friends.
2. My closet is color cordinated black to white short sleeve to long. I like to walk in and know what I am looking at.
3. I can't sleep next to the door. Every time we move Paul has to change side because I won't sleep I just stare at the door waiting for someone to come through and get me!
4. Splitting the pole. If Paul and I are walking and there is something in between us I make him go to one side or the other (it is also bad luck to split the pole).
5. I don't like chocolate. I always get it for christmas and it usually doesn't get eaten.
6. I eat my sandwiches and burgers upside down. The way that food is wrapped makes it so I eat upside down.
