OK, so I’ve done all this layout changing so I figured I’d better do an updated post, as well. Tell me how you like the new layout? Thank you to my buddy Carrie for the header image. I'm still working on placement. I'm a do-it-yourselfer html code kinda gal so forgive me if it takes a bit to get it right. Anyway, Very cool, I think. She was going for something that would remind my of my beloved place – The Lot and I think she did quite well. So tell me what you think. I think it’s cool, although I will miss the little Norman look-a-like on the right…

This week has been better than the last few. I’m still ready for this election to be over, though. I just want the right guy for the job, no matter what party, what color, what ever. It seems like people just go crazy every four years. I know the future of our country depends on which guy we choose but I also know – that no matter what – the winner will not be a surprise to God and He is ultimately in control of all of it. Yes, our economy is scary right now. But it’s not scary to God! I know not many people liked the last administration but honestly – he did a heckuva lot better job than I could’ve. And he took a lot of abuse a lot more gracefully than I would have. I would’ve thrown insults right back at all these people who think they know my job better than me. And to be honest again, no I’m not really any worse off that I was 8 years ago. Granted, I seem to be deeper in the hole that I was but the more I’ve thought about that, the more I realize it’s my own fault! I’m the one who bought a house 40 miles from my workplace. I’m the one who bought two new cars at the same time thereby gaining two new car payments when there were none, one a gas guzzling Dodge Hemi. I’m the one who refinanced my house raising my house payments by $300/ month and I’m the one who spends my money. Okay, my 401K sucks butt at the moment and I’ve lost over $2,000 more than I’ve put in it this year but it’s all relative. I only really lose money when I sell! And I don’t plan on pulling out anytime soon and I’m sure, eventually, it’ll all work out and I’ll be in the plus again. It always does. I’m just muddling through, trying to keep my head above water, which I’ve been doing since before I got married the first time in 1992. So yea, I may have a problem in June when the mortgage adjusts on my ARM but I’ll cross that bridge when I get to it. I’m not going to steal worries from tomorrow when I have enough to worry about today. God knows what’s going on and God will take care of me, even if I have to live in a little two-story cabin in the woods.

I do have a lot better life than I did 8 years ago but that’s not due to anything government related – that’s Robbie related.

I am very, very sorry if I offend anyone. I’m not trying to do that at all! I’m just trying to make sense of it all in my own little head, which has a very hard time wrapping around all these big political ideas. Some days, I'm not so smart about some things.

This was not so much a fun blog. I probably should just keep my mouth shut next time.

I like your actual signature on the side. I like the campfire header, although it's so bright when the fire on both sides of the blog look so dark and, well, firey.

I love that you have Tom T. Hall on your music box! I love me some Tom T!

This is much easier to read than the firey type print. I love the flowery border.
