the goodbye ETMC girl

Well, I have officially put in my resignation @ ETMC, & am actually very sad. Having to work an extra holiday was just going to take away too much of my family time, so I just had to do it. I will miss the people I worked with so much, but hope to keep in touch with them.

Now to the big news of the week - Obama, Obama, Obama! I am a Republican, but tend to be on the liberal Republican side (if that makes sense), so I had a little trouble at first choosing a candidate to vote for. I had heard good & bad things about both of them, & had trouble sorting out the truths & lies. I prayed about it, and was led to vote for McCain. So I was disappointed upon hearing the results of the election. I will pray for Obama, as I would have for McCain, that he will make appropriate decisions for our country. I did feel touched as I watched Obama's supporters joy for their winning candidate & feel pride for our history making & changing decision to elect our first African-American president. After being raised in a prejudice family, I have made a point to be the opposite for my own children. So I guess what I am saying is that I hope that this turns out to be a good thing for our country & that Obama proves all the naysayers wrong!

My husband was telling me the cutest thing that Kalli said when she was in the truck with him yesterday. They were listening to the radio & the song "We're Not Gonna Take It" by Twisted Sister came on. After the song was over, Kalli said "I think that song is about drugs". Wouldn't that have been a great meaning to that song - we're not gonna take drugs?!

I think it would have been great for twisted sister to not have taken drugs too!! She's so cute.
I hate to hear that you left ETMC, but I hope that things are better at your new job. I know it was a tough move. Are you at Mother Frances? Do you like it?
I finally have a blog, but it's not too interesting. A couple of friends have been saying that I need to start one. I still don't know how to put pics on though. Still learning.
Hopefully we can get together soon. What weekends are you off? Hope you have a great thanksgiving.
