McCain's VEEP pick!

I was delighted that John McCain picked a female for his running mate for VEEP. She is also pro life, which is a huge sway for me. I really haven't heard much about her, but after reading about her, it seems she has huge balls, so she can't be all that bad. I am sure that a few are disappointed because Romney did not make the cut, but I am hoping that he will find his way somehow, he was my second pick. After watching Obama last night, I think this is a huge slap for him...I guess he should have picked Hillary!! This should be an interesting race!!

It is a sunny day , and I am glad the rain is gone. It was nice for a few days, but was not so nice to my arthritis!! I got up early today and drove T and her friend to school. I took them for breakfast before school and they seemed to enjoy having a little time to relax and eat before school. I could not believe that we had an extra thirty minutes today. T usually has problems waking up, but today, she was up early. Her friend came over last night and borrowed a skirt and top from T to wear today. Both of them were dressed in dresses today. I don't know for sure, but it seems that they must have a crush, or maybe they are just happy to be out of uniforms this year. I felt kind of out of place in my Pj bottoms and t-shirt! It took me a few minutes to get going today...I didn't have my coffee and I got up after T, so I was rushing around trying to find my keys, etc. so we could go.
Today I am going to get some cleaning done. I got a new steam machine for the hardwoods, so I am going to try it out. Also, a guy is coming to do some work on the back deck, nothing major, just replacing some handrails that are cracked. Next, we are going to have some painting done on the front of the house and windows, fun. It never ends around here!!! Have a great day!!!

Somewhat Sunny Day!

Today started out with tornado warnings..and then lots of rain. Finally, the sun is shining through!! We are receiving the end of a tropical storm here in the south, and even though we need the rain, this is so dreary. The leaves are also changing colors, which maybe an indicator of an early fall. The weather is still very warm though, and very, very humid!
I drove T and one of the neighborhood kids to school this am. It was raining, so I did not want her to ride the bus, although, she fought me all the way! I finally won the battle when she saw the tornado warning on the TV. Thankfully, we missed the tornadoes!! She was concerned about her dad. He was on his way to work and the tornado was going towards his area, but luckily, all they got was a lot of rain and wind.
My cousin is getting married this weekend, so I will be going down for the wedding. I can not believe that she is old enough to get married, but she is almost 26. I can remember when she was born!! Oh well, I guess we all have to get older, right?
I am also looking forward to seeing my mom and grandmother. I haven't been home since June, so I need a break. I am going to the doctor today to get some antibiotics for my cold. I have an earache today!! Ouch! I guess the wind from the weekend got to me! This is an awful time of the year for us, sinus infections and colds, the usual. I hopefully will catch the cold before it gets too bad! T has been stuffy all week, but seemed a little better today! Have a good day!

Sunday's thoughts

Today is overcast and yucky! Thank goodness, we only got the wind from the "Fay" storm, but today is overcast and tornado warnings are out. We had a few spinkles, but no heavy downpours, which I would have welcomed!! Our grass is brown and dead out front, and we could really use a good soaking rain!!
I have been helping T with her book reports that are due tomorrow. Of course, she put them off till the last minute, and no matter how much I preach to her that procrastination is so wrong, I am slowly learning that she doesn't hear a word I say!! I might as well save my breath!! At least she is creative enough to do the reports without my help, but I don't want her to take the lazy way out. She chose two books, one about a horse named "Whiskey" and "Annie Oakley". Wow, a horse and a sharpshooter..out of all the books in the library, these are the two that she found interesting. Well, as long as she enjoys reading, I guess I should not be too worried. I don't have an guns in the house, and the horses are not allowed on the golf course. She has somehow managed to talk my older brother into giving her a horse, but at least it is a few hours away, so I don't have to worry about those injuries for now! So far, she has also taken to James Patterson books about flying people and Harry Potter. I also love those books, so I am glad that I can share them with her. I read the new Patterson book called "Daniel X" last Sunday, and I must say that I found it a little strange, but good reading.
Well, the rain has started finally. Bear has at least been enjoying the cool breezes on the front porch. He is so funny as he has learned to stand on his hind legs and look over the hedges to bark at the mailman. He also howls at the planes and sirens from the firetruck...too funny.
Well, hope you all had a great weekend.
