I'm a Lucky Lady
[Maryanne]Just look at my husband.. How could you ask for more? No seriously: here's a guy that can have fun, doesn't take himself too seriously (those teeth are mini-marshmallows!) and even in jest is pretty good looking.
But enough of that slushy stuff. I know I've not posted in a few days, so just wanted to check in, let you know we are all fine. We've been working hard and running around with various projects for the boat and our next long journey (Just-in-case Medical supplies, bottom painting, etc) and of course trying to catch up with friends too.
Angie could not join us but she made us Dinner last night (Sushi - WOW! Thanks Angie).
Despite having to-do lists that seem to grow faster than I can tick them off, I met up with Liz (friend from my EMT days), and together we spent some time volunteering for the Obama campaign this week. I was very proud of myself, but totally humbled by the many folks that seem to have given up work completely, traveled across country and thrown themselves into 20 hour days working for change. Virginia is a critical swing state, although I will be voting from Arizona, my official home. This will be my first presidential election as an American citizen, I'm very excited and am desperate to see that we can have a democratic President, especially one so eloquent and obviously intelligent as Barack - one we won't have to feel embarrassed about on the international stage.
