This and that

Last night Juergen and I had a date. We went to dinner, went for a walk and then to a movie. I think it's really important for couples to hire a good babysitter and spend time out together! If you can not find a babysitter, try taking a morning off and go out to breakfast together. That's just a tip on keeping your marriage strong and happy. You have to take the time!

Sarah went back to kindergarten today. She spends a week in her old kindergarten, then has a 2 week break before she rides the bus to her new kindergarten. She will be attending a school for kids that have language delays. She is pretty excited about the new school, and so are we. She was well loved and cared for at her present school, but she just needs the extra language instruction. Thank God the school is available to her. She will be in a small class with two teachers and two aids. Sarah gets so frustrated not being able to really express herself well.

Jessica is a little sick today. She has been sleeping allot, and has a small temperature. She is such a sweet hugger when she is sick. I get allot of calls for hugs and love from her. She likes it when I express my sympathy. Oh, poor baby! I guess she is just like all of us!

Philip is suppose to start a Viet Vo Dao class tonight. He had on his fighting outfit this morning. I hope it works out.

Nicole gets an extra guitar lesson today. She spent a few extra hours practicing her guitar. She has gotten so good.

Juergen will be picking out a drum set for Thomas soon. I'm hoping he puts the time into it to make the purchase worth it.

I personally am reading way too much about the potential VP's for John McCain. I'm happy and amazed that the race is very close. You would expect Obama to be 20 points ahead because the economy is not in great shape(under statement). I like Gov Sarah Palin but I'm still not sure she has enough experience to be the VP. McCain is old and really needs a VP that could be the President. I don't think Obama has the experience and I don't think Gov Sarah Palin does either. I still like Carly Fiorina. The more I see and read about her, the more impressed I am by her skills and character. She was un fairly fired from her job as the CEO of HP. She really broke ground in a mans world! The women is really sharp and articulate. I watched some you tube videos of Sarah Palin, and I agree with many people...not ready yet! She has potential, but she is just not ready yet! Personally, that is what I think of Obama too. I think he ran too young. He should have waited 4 more years. He needs more experience. He should prove himself first. I don't agree with his views on most everything but I think he is a very impressive person. I do not think he is ready, and I have not seen anything that would make me think Sarah Palin is ready either. I do like her (at least what I've seen of her). I like Carly better! So I'm hoping I can get off my political obsession once McCain announces his VP choice. You can ask Juergen, I get a little (a lot) carried away by the drama of politics. I just love it all too much!!!

Despite the Dems and the allied main stream media’s desperation to see Romney as McCain’s Veep, Mitt is clearly out, with (1) Obama doubling down on the class warfare theme (McCain’s 7 houses) and (2) McCain doubling down with ads showing the hypocrisy of Biden attacking Obama in the primaries — Romney did way more than that contra McCain.

This leaves only Govs Sarah Palin and Tim Pawlenty. Pro-abortion Ridge and Dem-Lieberman were never real considerations, despite relentless media goading. Pawlenty’s lackluster TV performances, coupled with Palin pizzazz, the primacy of oil drilling and the ticked off women/Hillary voters, does now portend a McCain/Palin checkmate on the Dems. This is so albeit the Dems and liberal media dare not mention Palin’s name, that is, everyone but…..

And if there’s any question as to Palin being uniquely positioned and able to more than nullify Biden in debate, see the excellent discussion at

Team McCain, well done!!!
