Hello from New England

With regards to my last post, I hope I didn't come off as sounding preachy or self-righteous, because that wasn't my intention at all. There are so many times where I spend money (that I don't have!) like it's my job and I know my credit card bills could be lower. I also just commented on Ashley's blog about the pretty new Coach purse she bought (on sale!!!) and how much I want one too. I think my point was just that it is small moments like that that help me keep things in check and realize just how lucky I am to have the things that I do. I know I've taken things for granted in the past, so I suppose I am trying to do less of that now.

I am home in NH for the long weekend. A high school friend is getting married tomorrow (wedding no. 3 of 5 this year...). I flew home yesterday afternoon. My father picked me up at the airport and home we drove. This morning I met my best friend and godson for breakfast and then went to the park for some quality swing and slide time. My camera is acting a little funny, so I hope I can get it back to normal before the wedding tomorrow. Steve flies up today, so I'll get him at the airport later today.

What do you think of McCain's VP pick?

Happy long weekend! Big plans?

I think it's a smart pick. A very smart pick indeed. He's going for the CLinton votes now.

I do not think you came off preachy or self-righteous at all. You were sharing a story and offering some perspective...something we could all use a little more of.

Hope you had a great time in New England.

I do not like the pick. Not because she's a woman, or because her daughter is pregnant, or because she's a moose hunter or anything else that's being put out into the news, I don't like the pick because I don't think she's qualified. And I disagree with her on issues of human rights, abortion and the environment.

Also, I might have a wee crush on Joe Biden so I'm a bit biased.

I'm kidding. Sort of. ;)

I don't like the pick as well... same reason. I don't think she's qualified. And with a candidate as old as McCain, you can't really round out the ballot with someone who can't really pull the weight. No matter how poofy her hair is...
