I was watching the clock today, counting down the moments until Fall Book Rush 2008 was history. Hubby and I celebrated by stopping for fast food burgers on the way home (they are a celebration when one is on such a limited budget). He may work next week but I will return only for football game days and such until the end of the semester when these same books are sold back to the store.
I do have to admit that I would have voted in this election... regardless. One cannot live in this family and get away with staying home on election day. I would have heard about it for four solid years if "the other guy" got in. :)
I do have close friends who are Democrats and Obama supporters. We just don't talk politics. I heard an interview with Lynne Cheney who remarked how different the Washington climate is now. There was a time when the Republicans and Democrats were often good friends and the Cheney's had very close friends from "across the aisle". However, she said you don't find that, anymore. Since the Bible says "a house divided against itself will not stand"... makes you kinda' wonder, doesn't it?
I LOVE the In the Heart of My Home blog and thought this post about Sarah Palin was right on! Do take the time to read it. I've been a stay at home Mom, a corporate career Mom, and a homeschooling Mom. I believe every time I was in God's will due to prayer and the leading of circumstances in each situation. I'm hoping Evangelical women do not put Sarah Palin down because she is a "working Mom"... one who gets paid for working, that is. Every mother is a working mother. :)
