Finally, a decision made

I have finally made up my mind, no more waffling. I'm voting for Obama! If I'm wrong and he turns out to be a terrorist, the anti-Christ, and/or a Muslim extremist, I will admit that I was wrong...

After the Joe the Plumber debacle - finding out that he's worried about paying taxes for a plumbing business for no reason because he doesn't pay them anyways, and he's not really a plumber - and the endless negative ads making false claims about Obama, I decided that the things I dislike about McCain outweigh the things I like.

Saturday night, after Frog Level, Dave and I headed over to the local campaign office and picked up a sign for our yard. I hope it makes it to election day...a lot in our area have been vandalized or stolen.

Here's a pic for posterity...

Fally weekend

It's been a while since I posted, so I thought I'd grace the internet with an entry about my weekend...

Friday night, while the Millers were at the SHS game for Nate's reunion weekend, I sat at home bored, and looked though old yearbooks reminiscing.

Five minutes later, still bored...I forced Dave to take me to Target so we could replace the mini-blinds that the cat decided didn't need to be hanging in the window any longer. She was high on kitty crack and decided to chew on the string and then run away quickly with the string still in her mouth. The bracket holding up the blinds came crashing down and little pieces of plastic went flying all over! She's still in the dog/cathouse.

Anyways, apparently plantation blinds are the preferred window covering of Target shoppers, so there were no blinds to choose from. I thought seriously about transitioning to the new version, but then added in my head how many windows I would need to redo, and decided against it :)

Wal-mart was a sure bet for mini-blinds, but the crowd, traffic, and general dirtiness made it almost unbearable, but mission accomplished. To top it off, when I got home and tried to install said blinds, I realized I had measured wrong (twice) and now I have to go back to exchange them! I'm putting that off.

Saturday was the Frog Level Fall Festival - and as you can see from the quality of the website, it's kind of a big deal. We picked up some Brunswick Stew, looked at the vendors (one was giving away free water and balked when we declined her offer), and paid $1 for an Obama bumper sticker because they didn't have any yard signs.

Then I came home and took a nap under my fluffy down comforter. I love fall weekends...

I find it ironic that my frost-free freezer has frost on it - and that the only frost is right next to the "frost-free" claim. Pictures below...
