    I was going to vote for Mitt Romney. Now I am so disappointed in the way that things are shaping up that I am going to vote for Daffy Duck. I honestly believe that he could do a better job than any of the clowns we have running right now. This election is shaping up to be the battle of the clones. These guys are so much alike that it really won't matter who we voteĀ  for. We are still going to end up with Clobacain in the office. This is a sad day for America. When the candidates are this much alike, we the citizens of this great Nation have no real choice.

    Today starts a new journey for Brandon. He received his engraved Bible from the church during this mornings service. This marks the beginning of his Communion classes. On Ash Wednesday he will be receiving his 1st communion. We are so excited for him. Although it does indeed mean that he is growing up. Following his 1st Communion, he will begin Confirmation. These are big steps in his religious education & helps us, as his parents fulfill the promise that we made when he was Baptised. May God walk with us on this journey.

    November 6, 2007Election Day

    Tuesday, November 6, 2007, 10:06 AM [General]

    I never thought I would be falsely accused of anything when discussing politics in the Cafe.I understand that politics can make tempers run high, but, man, I really had to respond to that post. It makes me feel like a jerk for being so forceful about it, yet, I could not allow those comments to go unchecked. To accuse anyone of having a cavalier attitude about this war is reprehensible when it is true, but when it is false? I cannot believe it. She has no idea what we went through when Retta was in Baghdad. I hope that she never gets the phone call that we got when she was hurt. To say I am offended is
    an understatement. My feelings are hurt that she would even go there. Then to actually place my 12yr old son in that discussion is unforgivable. I do not think I will ever be able to talk with her on a personal level again & not think about that post.

    I decided to put it on"paper" so to speak. Today has been a horrible day. I feel guilty for having disagreed heatedly with Sean in his own room & now, it would appear that he has decided to leave the Cafe. That makes me feel like shit. I did apologize, but I fear that it was too late.
    Kathy was involved in that discussion as well & she has not posted since then either.
    It is cold & windy as hell here & I am in a rather pissy mood. I have been most of the day. I hope that i don't give this mood to my family. We all know how contagious a bad mood can be.

    Brandon's overnight

    Friday, November 2, 2007, 11:04 PM [General]

    I am officially the worst mother in the world.
    Brandon is camping on an overnighter with his Boy Scout Troop. He has sweat pants, Sweat shirt, heavy socks, heavy coat, a sleeping bag rated at 30 or above & an extra blanket. It is 38` right now & he called to ask me to please come get him because he is cold & cannot take it anymore.
    I told him that he is a 12 year old boy & that he could take darned near anything. I refused to go get him. Now, I am sitting in my warm house, crying like a baby & feeling like shit.
    Way to go Jodi.
