Good Morning!

The sun is shining, the birds are singing, and it's a beautiful day. Everyone is fresh from a good night's sleep: EXCEPT ME. I was up all night.

Second night in a row. The night previous, the last time I looked at the clock it was 4am.

What's keeping me up?

Sarah Palin.

I've got myself all worked up over politics. I'm married to a republican. My best friend is a democrat. I'm a moderate. I seem to always be caught in the middle of things. I've already expressed by my views, so I won't go there.

I will mention this. Sarah Palin's youngest daughter was as cute as a bug's ear while her mother gave her speech. The licking of her hand and smoothing of baby brother's hair was precious. I've read that in quite a few places on the web, everyone thinking that was cute.

I haven't read this: Was there anyone out there, besides me, thinking: TWO HANDS, hold that baby with two hands??? That made me nervous seeing that little girl holding her baby brother with one hand.

I know that I am an anxious person. I know that I need to let go of the politics. I need my sleep. When I get anxious, I don't sleep. So no more reading about politics. Let's see how long that lasts!

I'm going to try to take a nap now. Before I do, I'm going to gather several things that Thomas can do without mom's instruction. I'll get up with him, probably do math, and then I'll take a morning nap, because I cannot function with little to no sleep, I just can't. I will not nap in the afternoon, though. He can work on independent stuff while I take an hour snooze, and then I'll get up and finish the stuff I need to with him.

Not optimal, but it will do.

This is why I don't watch or read a lot of news, because I get too worked up over stuff. While that means I'm not keeping current, which isn't good, it means that I don't get worked up about stuff. Sometimes it stinks being a highly emotional person.

I didn't want the RNC mostly because I didn't want to get worked up or into a heated debate with the family that's here. We're scattered all over from moderate leaning conservative to pretty liberal. Makes for interesting conversations here!

Anywhoo - even though I didn't see it - yes i would have been thinking and probably saying TWO HANDS! Drives me nuts to see little kids holding little babies and then do it one handed.

What is bugging me about Mrs. Palin, is that she professes to be this right wingish person of faith and yet, her 17 year old daughter comes up pregnant.

As you said previously, "I will not judge, I will not judge." And yet I find myself coming to those who tell so many people..."Well she came from a good Christian home."

OK, well maybe she did, but something went amiss. Did her daughter miss the Sunday school class about abstinence. Don't even get me started.
