I was going to write a "deeper" post today. But I don't argue politic, religion, or anything else on my blog. That's my choice. I won't even argue football! (Why argue about the best? ha ha). So, what I want to say is: Congratulations, Mr. Obama. And even though you were not my choice, I am not so old that I can't appreciate change...I like change...especially if it's for the good. It shakes us up, makes us think...keeps us young.
Now, for more change! Yay...no more political ads! On to the Thanksgiving and Christmas ads!
And more change: I'm thinking about having a "House Divided" Christmas tree!
I've had traditionally decorated trees, a red, white and blue tree (after 911), and a black and orange tree (Austin High School). So, why not! I have plenty of orange and red ornaments. I'll just add AU and UA ornaments, blue ornaments (which I don't have!) and Valarie has some cute ornaments she's 'crafting' over on her blog. I could make some of those...and not just the Auburn ones! I also saw UA and AU stockings at Cracker Barrel yesterday! So cute! I could make some of those!
But, before I do the tree, I need to talk to my children. Especially Auburn Guy. He's not happy. I'm not sure he'll be staying at Auburn. I'm not sure if he's just burnt out from school, if he's just homesick, or what the problem is. He'll be home for a week during Thanksgiving. So will David. Maybe we can work things out then.
'Bama Girl will be home on Tuesday before Thanksgiving and then has to leave Friday for Saturday's game. Roll Tide! We'll be celebrating her birthday (Nov. 29th)...she'll be twenty! Since she'll be in Tuscaloosa, we'll celebrate early. And because our anniversary is the same date...we'll be doing that, too! (Yes...I was giving birth on our 10th!)
It will be nice to have everyone home (at the same time!). I'll be able to feed them, spoil them....and then they'll leave...but not for long. Christmas is creeping up on us!
