I'm so sexy

Brookey is 27 weeks pregnant. Which to be honest I hate this measuring by weeks thing. I don't know how many months that constitutes (I'll probably need a slide rule and that Chinese math tool that has a bunch of beads...oh yeah an abacadabra)

So just now while we were lying in bed she rubbed her belly and said "I'm so sexy!!!" I loved it. I love how she can be playful.

She is sexy is the thing. Well you're not suppose to think that cause I'll punch you or something. But I am so in love with her right now.

I love her humor.

Here's to 13 more weeks (or 91 day, or 2184 hours, or 232040 minutes, or...well you get it)

That's funny

One Week and Then the Election Madness Ends

Here's the deal, when this election really began, when parties had their candidates and it was time to make a decision, I was excited.

I registered, I listened to both conventions, and I made my decision.

Now it's just crap. I've grown tired of the experience.

You're telling me you haven't decided who you'll be choosing? You're telling me that after hours of debates, talking heads and celebrities weighing in (they're the one's we really need to listen too. I made my decision because Oprah told me so) you haven't picked a candidate?

Well I'm tired. Tired of hearing about the election. I'm over these last minute dirt diggings. I'm way tired that the election is all I see.

I get it you're voting for McCain, you want Obama.

What I can't stand is the nature and lengths we go to be heard. More so, how we pick our party.

It's the party or bust.

I wanted one candidate, they didn't win the primary. I watched the conventions and formed my opinion.

Does it match what I initially chose? Nope.

Am I okay with that? Sure.

What other option do I have?

What sucks is I have to hear the candidates, the Facebook, the blogs, the MSNBC, the FOX, beating their effing drum relentlessly.

I feel like I'm getting on an airplane and learning how to buckle a seat belt.

Oh the big end goes in the little end? Really?

Oh this is the most important election I'll ever be a part of? Really?

If you think I don't care about my civic duty, I registered and will vote early this week. I am also scheduled to work as a Poll Clerk in Utah.

Bottom line is I've chosen my presidential candidate

(I made it independent of you and as far as I know this blog has not eluded to who it is. You don't need me to make your decision for you. You don't need to hear my drum banging. You're a big kid, read up on the issues and make a decision)

Do me a huge favor, there's one week left. Put some faith in your fellow Americans and let them cast their votes in peace.

Poll Worker

Today I went to my beginner training to be a poll worker for the upcoming election. We spent two hours learning how to write a persons name down and hand them a card to vote on a touch screen computer. The sad thing was there were actually people there who need more training. Brooke and I had some good laughs especially with the lady who looks like the dad from 50 first dates and a woman who died about four months ago but no one told her. Our teacher was great and could tell we could handle our responsibility. I'm looking forward to earning my paycheck on November 4th when I work from 5:30 am to 8 pm. I hope we get a couple of trouble makers so I can exercise my civic duty of knocking their heads in and showing them the door. Did you know you can't wear anything that promotes your party within 150 feet of the polling center?
