So, I got the call from the insurance company today. Yup, the car is totalled. So as soon as Keith gets on the school bus, I'm going up to State Farm with the munchkins and picking up the check. Then when Ed gets home from work, we're going to go buy a car. Bummer - the Honda was a good little car. Old, but good. Maybe I'll get lucky and there will be a used Honda at the car shop! In other news, I am THRILLED with the election results. Like you couldn't have guessed from Caroline's shirt or anything! I am so excited to see what the next four years bring - I don't think it can be much worse than the last eight! And, I am so impressed that we elected a black president. Not only that, we elected a man who was raised by a single mom and his grandparents and had a white mom and a black dad. Did you ever thought you'd see this day? I remember when I was growing up that I wanted to be a fighter pilot in the Air Force (yes, I grew up in the era of Top Gun!) and my parents told me I couldn't, because girls weren't allowed to be fighter pilots. Things have certainly changed in the past twenty years! Now I feel that I can tell my children that they can be whatever they want to be - fighter pilot, president, you name it. So, thank you Mr. Obama, for proving that you CAN be whatever your heart desires!
