Good Morning, fellow bloggers (or afternoon or night – depending on when you are reading this blog posting).
So, on my way home last night, after picking up the daughter from school… we decided to discuss the Presidential Election on McCain versus Obama.”Well, I think McCain would be a good president”, she says with a fury speed like she is wound up on tons of sugar.
Me: “Why would McCain be a good president?”
Daughter: “because he would.”
Me: “but you have to know why he would be a good president?”
Daughter: “because daddy says he will be a good president!” (LOL)
Mind you, my husband is a die hard republican. But, then she brings up…
Daughter: “no, I change my mind. Obama would be a good president.”
Daughter: “because he is a good speaker and he would be the first brown president.”
Me: “That is true. He does have that going for him and it would be the first time.”
Daughter: “and because I heard that Obama wants to make the school days longer and McCain wants to shorten the days. It would be good to have them longer because kids could get smarter.” (LOL)
I had to explain, that although I have not heard that argument before, it would be the school year and not the days that would be affected. It would be a shorter summer vs. the traditional school year.I got a kick out of having an intellectual conversation with my daughter. And a 3rd grader wanting longer school time because kids will get smarter. She has such a blessed mind. 🙂
In the end, she is still undecided who she would vote for as our president. She realizes that there are good points about either president, its just who would be better for the position. “This is hard”, she says.
US Bloggers: Happy voting to whomever you elect! 🙂

What I did this past weekend:
Cleaned out the boxes in the garage! We bought a mass of color coded rubbermaid boxes. Orange for Halloween, Olive for Christmas, and Green for Camping. No more cardboard boxes! And we ended up taking a heap of stuff to the charity shop. I was also happy to find that our city recycles old TV and computer monitors there, too. That totally helped – completed two task in one trip.
Also, I cleaned out the guest bathroom cupboards and organized everything! Rubbermaid containers are the best for organizing.
One room at a time and its making a huge difference. Let alone filling up the trash can. ha!
Make it a great day!
