Today John and Elizabeth Edwards announced that her cancer had come back and spread, and that there is no cure for it. Though I don’t particularly like John Edwards (although he would be better than Hillary), I find this very sad. I know what it is like to watch loved ones slip away to cancer. It’s a horrible thing, and I wouldn’t wish it on anyone. So, politics aside, I just wanted to say that my heart really goes out to them. And, I think people should leave them alone about him still being in the race for 2008. I’m sure they sat together as a family and a couple, and decided on what would be best for them. People deal with these kinds of things in very different ways. This is how they have chosen to deal with it. Just because you may not agree with is doesn’t mean it’s wrong.

We’ll get back to political differences later, but for now, I really do wish for them all the best.

When color blind people decorate…

OK, so we got all the old flooring torn up. Hooray! Now, I think we’re going to paint, before we put the new wood floors in (that way we don’t have to worry about paint drips). Anyhow, I want to put some color on the walls, liven things up a bit. Now, the problem is, that I’m color blind. Yes, I know it’s freakish to be a color-blind female, but what can I say. So, I really can’t pick out the colors, because who knows if they’ll really look good together, besides the fact that I have like zero design sense. So, we sought the aid of a couple of our good friends to help. They are not color blind. They have a sense of style. We’ll see what happens. It should be interesting. I can’t wait until we have it all done!

Let the mess begin!

Well, we started pulling up our flooring today. We got the tile, carpet, and some of the linoleum pulled up. It was a lot of work. But, I’m going to be very happy when we have our new wood floors in! Oh, I can’t wait! But, we still have more linoleum to get up. That stuff is a pain! Thankfully, today we had a couple people come help us. The kids helped, too! They were pretty cute! The boys had on daddy’s gloves and were working hard like him. Pretty adorable! Anyway, I’m hoping to have everything done in a couple weeks, but we’ll have to see.

Finally, a name for the pup

So, after much debate and trial, we have finally named our new little puppy! Luke (from Star Wars). OK, I know it’s not all exciting, but it was a long process to get this far. The name seems to fit him. So, now we have Luke, Chewy, Leia, and Mace – our 4 crazy wiener dogs!

Here, Luke is sleeping on Chewy. They’re so cute!
