I'm Frozen!

I can't take this cold weather! It is snowing today, and I am so not ready for winter. I'm never ready. I really need to live somewhere that has 75-80 degree weather all year long. Shaun doesn't understand why it bothers me since I don't spend much time outside, but I'm inside right now with the furnace set to 74 degrees and I'm FREEZING. I am planning a trip south to help my sister-in-law who is in the hospital next week and I can't wait. I think even if she ends up not needing me, I'll go just to escape the cold.

On another note; history was made yesterday. I am going to mention it for the sake of journaling. I have never been too interested in politics, but this year I have paid a little bit more attention to what the Presidential candidates were all about. Although Obama was not my pick (actually neither of the candidates really were), I was not at all surprised by the outcome. Since I didn't have many strong feelings about which candidate would be better for our country, I am now just pleased to know how far our country has come since 1965 when ALL blacks were finally given the right to vote. I like the show "24", and I absolutely loved the President Palmer character. The fact that he was a black man in the White House actually didn't surprise me much, so I don't fully understand why so many people thought that the possibility of us having a black President was far-fetched, but I do realize that yesterday was a HUGE day for the history books. It will be interesting to see how much "change" will actually take place in the next four years.

Brrrrr! I hate the cold too. It may get cold here, but at least I get some really warm days here and there to get me through the winter.

I am so happy history was made yesterday, (I guess it would have either way with a woman as the vice president on the other side) it is an exciting time for the country.

Ha ha! my word verification for this comment is WINTERG... funny!

Do not move here. You will die. I get frostbite just running into the grocery store. :)
