The house hunt began again yesterday, and I realized I really am a child! Rob and our Realtor Melissa must want to kill me as we look at houses! I found the most awesome swing set to play on last night at a house! I was having the time of my life when I hear in unison “Annie, get down!” Needless to say, awesome swing set NOT so awesome house!
I also realized you see the strangest things when you are looking at other people's houses! Sometimes the personal items you see when opening a closet are kinda creepy! Hide that stuff!!!
Ahh oh well... guess we'll continue next week!
There is this campaign going around on Facebook this month that has you listing what you are thankful for everyday as we count down to Thanksgiving. I know I am a little late, but I thought we'd start this morning! Today I am thankful for all those who fought for me to have the right to vote in yesterday's election. I don't care what side of the political spectrum you land on... if you voted, thank you.
Yesterday, was the first time I voted in person and I got pretty emotional. Could you imagine someone telling you you couldn't vote because of the color of your skin or because you were female? This country is great because we all have a voice. Yes, some voices may be heard louder then others... but on election day, we are all equal.
Now you may call me naive, but that in itself is reason to be thankful.
Yesterday, I watched my mom sew lollipops on a sweater on her way to making the best costume.... Sunshine and Lollipops! Ya, I know corny, but she was so excited to tell her anything different!
