Random Bits and My Attempts to be Political

Mary's deadset on changing C2's name and having C2 as his middle name. We talked to him a little bit about it (as much as you can to a child that recently turned 3). Of course, as expected he wants his name to be Superman then later he thought the name Shamu would be acceptable. Oh, silly C2.

We attempted to go to a Hillary rally on Saturday. I told Mary we should get there early but she didn't think it was going to be that big. It was. We did not get in along with hundreds of other people. Mary was going to donate $100 so she was all, they're not getting my check. LOL. I of course teased her that they didn't know who she was and that she is a major donor ;-)

(my attempt at meeting Hillary while dressed as a Mainer)

We went candlepin bowling. Apparently Mary had never been (I guess candlepin is a northern thing) so it was sort of a comedy show and fun to whoop her butt. I love my Mary but she's one of those people that's good at everything. If you go *regular* bowling with her, she'll win, if you play pool with her, she'll win, etc, etc. Then after she'll be like, you know I was on a league for many years. What? LOL. I am admittedly competitive so I don't like to lose. I still remember the time I beat Mary at scrabble and I got to sing and dance to my hit song - "who has a PhD and who is an LMT *that's licensed massage therapist*??". I'm so funny, that must be why she loves me. Anywho, C2 was being a grump so he refused to bowl with us. He seems to be in what I call an "uncooperative stage" so I hope he grows out of it soon.

C1 was at respite for the weekend. We are meeting with a potential adoptive family for him on Thursday. They sound PERFECT for him so I am hoping they are and are willing to take on the challenge.

I did NOT vote today. It was a mess like everything else in town. We have a caucus in Maine (opposed to a primary). So there is only one place in town to vote. I got there less than 20 minutes after it opened. It was snowing/raining/icing and the line was about a 1/2 mile outside of the building. C'est la vie.

What's candlepin bowling?

I beat Sweetness at Scrabble too and I'm always to excited...him being an aerospace engineer and all (eye roll). What he doesn't have is a mother who is an english professor. He he...take that braniac Sweetness.

I gather you're pro hillary? I'm not anti, I just haven't decided yet.

Candlepin is small balls opposed to big balls - that's really the only way to describe it.

Yeah, I've decided to support Hillary. I really like Obama but I think he lacks the experience. I also have less faith that a black man will be voted in though I don't have much more that a woman would be voted in. It is exciting that they are both running.
