Not sure at all why all of the sudden, I am not feeling well. I think I have a cold, as does Rebecca, Spencer and Braelyn. I hope it is a cold and nothing but a cold. I also hope that the little man Brody doesn’t get it. Right now, he seems to be the only one in the house without, excluding Hoover of course. I guess it’s fitting that I would be sick on the day the senate will vote on its health care reform bill. Wait, I mean on the day of the NIGHT that the senate will vote on it. Call me crazy, but I think the mere fact that a vote is being called after hours is a bit telling. Call me even more crazy but a bill that people haven’t had the chance to read in its entirety and which has unclear price tags associated with it is also a bit telling.

I think a new change and a new hope will sweep the 2010 elections.

Our political system is corrupt and embarassing. Yep, I think that sums it up quite nicely.

Tomorrow, lil man Brody will fly on his first airplane ride. At just over two months, he, along with Rebecca, Braelyn, Spencer and I, will embark for windy Wyoming. I looked at the forecast for Casper for next week and the temperatures look like they will be okay, but I presume the small smudgy icon on a few of those days indicates wind. Oh, how I sure hope so! I do miss the wind. Anyway, it will be nice to get to introduce Brody to the rest of my family. He has met his grandma and grandpa, but now he is in for a complete treat… one full week of constant attention by his aunts Stephanie and Wendy, his uncles Mike and Tony, his cousins Brandon, Nate, Ashley, Courtney, Keegan and Stephen, and his great grandma Dorothy. Of course, g’ma and g’pa will probably give him a little attention, too. I must remind the Elledges, Lovatos and Lechers, though, that Princess Braelyn will be arriving as well, and should be showered with attention as well. Something tells me that won’t be an issue.

We will be in Casper Sunday afternoon through the following Saturday, and I do look forward to a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner with the family. Holidays are great. Just hope the plane rides with two under two’s will go ok. I suspect the rest of the passengers will hope the same….

Busy day today. Need to attempt to finish hanging the Christmas lights [holy cow, did I say Christmas instead of holiday? How dare me….] Squeeze in an abbreivated guitar lesson at 12:30 instead of a full hour at 2pm, as at 2pm we will be hauling some 300+ pounds of custom built baseball lockers up to the lil man’s room. Hopefully we can just strap them onto Hoover’s back and he can do most of the work for us. I am anxious to see the lockers… they have been being built for six or seven weeks now by a guy I found on Craigslist. I hope they look as good in his room as they do in my head….

After that excitement I will probably need to do a little packing [right… that will probably take place 30 minutes before we leave tomorrow]. We shipped a bunch of stuff to Casper earlier this week for $14, box included, so we don’t have to check much in the way of luggage at $50 per bag round trip. Oh, Southwest Airlines, why don’t you fly to Casper?

Well, my early morning of blogging is coming to an end. I need to go refill my coffee cup. Rebecca and the kids are still in bed… I am only up because I couldn’t get back to sleep and I wanted to check in on a few auctions on Swoopo.com. If you haven’t been to Swoopo.com, you should check it out. It is an awesome concept. I wish I had thought of it…

Have a great Thanksgiving, all.
