I also just told Chris that the President's name is not Bronco Bama.

Chris and I were talking in the car today.  He is worried that Obama isn't going to win the election.

"It just that there was so much excitement four years ago," he says.  "He was such a great speaker, you know?"

"Yeah, it does feel like there hasn't been as many spine-tingling speeches this time around," I agree.

"Do you remember that speech where he was all, 'Can we do it?!  Yes we CAN!"


Actually, I think that was Bob the Builder that said that.

But I get your point.

If you know Lilly . . .

I was putting Lilly to bed last night.  Having a little chat.  I asked about her day.

"Did you have a good day, Lilly?"

"Yes.  No.  Someone was MEAN to me."

"Oh, no!  Who was mean to you?"

"AMANDA was mean to me."

"Amanda?  What happened?'

At this point Lilly gets really riled up, sits up and starts gesticulating wildly, "Her said I wasn't the BOSS!"

And then she called her a jerk.

I didn't even know she knew that word.

This girl.  Really.  She is not docile.

Just, no.

I'm not going to tell the story about the tree falling on the van because, 1) it's not over, and 2) it's not even a good story anymore.  It's just a long and convoluted tale of bad things happening and us not understand what the sam hill is going on.

Nobody cares about it anymore, and I know that because I don't even care about it anymore.

We did lose power today for a few hours and I finally got to join in with the rest of country.

I'd been feeling a little left out.

It's weird when the power is house.  I was very conscious of the fact that the power was out and I kept telling myself, "Nothing is going to work."  But that's not true, because some things DO still work.  The problem is remembering which is which.

Things that work when the power is out:
1) toothbrush
2) Kindle
3) deodorant
4) cell phone
5) hot water

Things that do NOT work when the power is out:
1) The lights
2) hairdryer
3) The light switch
4) the lights
5) even when you use the light switch
