Would I have been all of those things if McCain won? Yes. Because I feel that both candidates had a wealth of information and experience to offer to our country. But I am more proud, more excited, more hopeful with Obama. This is history in the making. I don't even know what else to say!
Alright, I promised a picture of the coveted dress. I give you fair warning, I am all boobs, I swear. It is so damn annoying! My hubby says I look all scrunched up and frilly. Whatev.
I promise I'll post better pictures of this, after I'm done dealing with the house fiasco.
And lucky you, you get to see my haircut (which is now about 6 weeks old!) in the picture.
Next: The gorgeous bracelet I wore around the store for a good 45 minutes before I bought it. Again, my hubby says I am frilly. I am sure someone thinks it's gaudy, but I love it!
I am now calling this debacle with my house the Fiasco of 2008. They are going to have to gut my entire kitchen. The kitchen that is in the very center of my house. The kitchen that is all wood floors. And with the holidays coming up, along with the extent of the damage, they are saying it will be a good 2 months before it's done. And, it's bad enough that we have to move out. Soooooooo.....we will be moving all of our major things to a house that we are going to rent about 5 minutes from here. I was hoping for an apartment or condo or something, but this seems to be the best option for the time being. Soooooo, yeah.
Thanks to everyone for their kind words and support! We will make it through this, I am sure. I am thinking of it as a random adventure, so maybe that's why I am relatively okay with it all? I don't know. I am so thankful that we have good homeowner's insurance, and a good relationship with builders in the area, who are willing to open up their empty homes to us.
Anyone want to take a guess on just when I will be back in my house?? I'm taking a guess and going with January 18th, 2009. Maybe I should have some sort of silly contest?
