Oh, like you pay attention to "the issues"

Why didn't I do this sooner? I am LOVING being at home. Well, when I am actually AT home--I have been doing a lot of running around this week. But that means that I don't have to do it in the evenings like before. I'm not doing laundry until midnight or shoving dirty dishes over on the counter to have enough room to make Abby's lunch. I have time to make Abby's lunch! It's great.

Despite the fact that this is one of the biggest transitions of my life, the rest of the world apparently decided to just keep right on going. I've caught a little bit of both of the political conventions on TV, though I can't tolerate too much. When it comes to politicians, I tend to lean heavily on my instant first opinion of someone, based on really serious factors such as likeability, charisma, facial expressions and verbal tics. I don't have to tell you that this does not work out well for our current leader. However, all of the current candidates are considerably more...presentable. And regardless of party or beliefs, you gotta admit that Sarah Palin is a rock star. She is cute and sassy and very, very smart. I would not want to mess with her, but I would love to have lunch with her. I thoroughly enjoyed watching her speech--it contained moments of sarcasm and dry humor that were truly exemplary.

Speaking of sassy, my grandmother is coming up tonight to spend a few days with us. I am really excited for two reasons: I love hanging out with her, and I plan to work her to the bone. Seriously, our house needs some major reorganization and she will be the perfect assistant in my endeavour.

Week 1 of being AMEN COO is over, and I think AMEN is the better for it. I know I am. We'll see if the trend continues!

I would like to hear Matt's opinion after the first week... and more importantly, the all important 90-day evaluation!

Glad to hear you're enjoying being at home! It really is nice. You'll notice your weekends are better too because you won't be playing catch up.

And ditto for the Sarah Palin commentary...I think she's awesome!

Totally agree with you about Sarah Palin. I love her!

And thanks for thinking of me at Wal-Mart today. I think I felt the Wal-Mart-like vibes you were emmiting!
