again. i know. i'm a bit blah the last few days. i will say that i was very disgusted by all the booing to our 43rd President. he did his job: he did what he thought was right, he made tough decisions and those decisions kept us all safe from enemies, foreign and domestic. that's the only thing i want out of a President. keep us safe so we can be free to enjoy our lives and our families the way we see fit.
i will give our new President a chance because i respect anyone who holds that office. i pray that he has the wisdom to do what is right (and you know, everyone's definition of wisdom is 'anything they agree with') to keep us safe and to keep America the way it was intended to be.
here's my new favorite quote i heard yesterday. (i was actually shocked to hear it from one of the NBC anchors--although i shut my ears after he said it, so he could have trashed it):
A government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take from you everything you have. -- Gerald R. Ford
i really tried to enjoy watching the ceremonies yesterday, but i had to put it on mute. the gushing and tingling sounds were killing me. it really ruined the entire historical perspective for me. i couldn't take another second of it.
as for the dress. i guess i liked it. maybe i'm a bit jealous b/c i love yellow but could never pull it off. i really wasn't liking the olive gloves and shoes. but i'm not certain what other color you would have put with it. it would have made cute colors for a layout.
sorry to have ruined it for some folks.
i'm off to prepare my roast for the pot for tonight's dinner and then to take a nap. i was up with owen 6 times last night. i don't know what his deal was. it's not that i was up long, but 6 interruptions of my sleep and i'm useless the following day. and will it ever end? he's 2 for pete's sake!!!
the new challenge is up at BASB...so it's time to get your scrap on.
