It's election day!! I will be voting for Obama tonight. Every day for at least a week I have been contacted by the Obama campaign - whether by phone or by someone coming to the house. They started contacting me months ago. Not once have I heard from the McCain campaign. Of course, that doesn't play into my decision. I want Obama to win because I want him to run our country. I am looking forward to casting my vote and then watching the results on the news through the night.
Yesterday we made the switch to Verizon. We will also use them for our cable and internet. Looking forward to when all that gets installed. I still have the same phone number, so no need to update your address books.
Thanks for wishing us luck. WOW!!!! Phillies WIN!!!! People are out on the corner with their kids banging pots with spoons. One kid wore his pot out! I mean, hole in a pot. Walk down the street and there were a hundred people (majority were high school age) cheering. Cars packed with people are driving by and honking. Kids banging on the cars. So great!!! I was waving a rally towel in each hand and jumping around like a nut. WOOOOOOO!!
Happy Anniversary to Drew and me. 3 years today. WOW. It is so exciting. I am gonna go finish my beer now. YAY!!!
I want to write a big long post about last weekend. But, I also want to sleep. These 8/8:30pm World Series games are wearing me down! No doubt you all heard about yesterday's terrible weather and how the game had to be suspended. It's the first time EVER that a World Series game had to be suspended for any reason. The rain and wind has been crazy all day! Let's hope that tomorrow (weather permitting) the Phillies win! I am glad they didn't resume play tonight because I'm off to bed. G'nite.
Tomorrow I work a half day. Then Drew and I are off to NYC! We're staying with Caroline and Mike Friday night. On Saturday, we're going to see the musical In the Heights on Broadway. So excited - it will be awesome! We have to miss watching a World Series game though. Oh yeah, the reason we're going to NYC is to celebrate our 3rd anniversary! Sunday morning we will wake up early and take Amtrak back to Philly. We are going to the Eagles game that afternoon. Drew won tickets through a Miller Lite promotion. Free tix and 3 free beers each. It will be crazy at the game, and the energy will continue through the night because of the Phillies game. Should be fun!
The weekend is over. It was pretty laid back, and went too quickly. On Saturday we went to a nearby winery and did a wine tasting. That was fun... never did that before. We went out to eat a couple times, and then on Sunday evening we cooked a really tasty meal at home. We watched a couple Sabres games over the internet, watched a little baseball, planted tulips, and hung up halloween decorations. On Saturday night we made a fire in our fire pit for the first time.
Black cat who loves toys, catnip, soft sleeping spots, and hides from new things unless Roger is OK with it first. She has no big fang teeth, so she can't bite, but she can still eat dry cat food. She meows a lot too.
