Thank you John McCain!
I stayed up way too late Thursday night getting ready for my preschool open house, and then once I got to bed I could not sleep. My biological clock is so messed up from being sedentary for so long plus staying up late watching those darn Olympics. I finally got up and turned the TV on at about 5:00 a.m., just as they were beginning to close in on Seantor McCain's running mate. It was so exciting to hear the LIVE reports. I had been hoping if McCain didn't select Mitt Romney that he would choose a strong woman and I was thrilled to hear it was Alaska's governor, Sarah Palin. I taped her acceptance speech (I know, I'm a news junkie) and I just bawled. I don't know if it was exhuastion, or relief at having the preschool room done or the fact that this woman could make a difference, or a combination of all of the above. I was so impressed with her in so many ways. The more I learn about her the more impressed I am. For the first time I think the Republicans just might be able to pull this off. Speaking of my news junkie problem, I taped the Democratic National Convention, then fast-forwarded through the speeches and went right to the play-by-play after. I love The FOX News Channel! I must admit I did listen to the entire speeches of both Biden and Obama. It seemed like it was nothing new or different, although Obama is a great speaker. The Hollywood hype seems like it should make the choice even more simple and clear. I hope so. I am way too old for those all nighters! After her speech I had a glorious 4 hour nap. After my nap I ordered McCain/Palin bumper stickers and key chains!
