Packing My Bags, Again

It's hard to believe that I've been back to Mississippi for two weeks! Time really raced by.

Friday the 13th (whooooo) at 2:20pm, Georgia will be two weeks old. 48 hours after that, I'll be on the ground in Maryland.

Getting to see friends and family while here has been refreshing and a bit tough. Flying in and out for a weekend is no time to miss the people or the place. Staying home with Kim, lovin' on a new baby, and working from home for two weeks...tends to make one reflective. I still know that God's opened some remarkable doors to take us to DC. And I still know that I love the South! ;)

From here on, the waters get a little muddier. God knows when the house will sell and where we will live and how the drive from here to DC will be...I just wish that I knew! ;)

But even when that day comes, we forged too many friendships and I have too many family members to not return often to the Magnolia State. Besides, I'll be expecting many of you to be touring DC with us soon!

More to come...

I Can Honestly Say Jon Is My Best Friend

At the beginning of this year, these were Kate Gosselin's words in an interview with Today's Christian Woman : "I can honestly say Jon is my best friend." Kate also says, "When the babies were born, I was well aware that our marriage could crumble. It was close to doing so at times. But we survived that first year. And then the second one. And then each year after that. Even though the issues have changed, it's never gotten easier. "But Jon and I are more determined than ever that we're in this together. We've told our kids many times that we're always going to be a family. There are no other options. Sure, Jon and I take our stress out on each other, and no, that's not always good or healthy. But we work hard as a team every day."

Why The Hate For Jon & Kate?

This is a bit odd for me to write a post about "Jon & Kate Plus Eight." The only reason I watch the show is if Kim has Netflixed a season (we don't get TLC) and I'm relaxing with her. Kim's a fan of it and has read Kate's book. But why this post? This family lives in our neighbor-state Pennsylvania, Kim and I concluded that Jon's personality is very similar to mine, and I'm sick of all the trash about them on the web and in the blogosphere.

Palin Keeps 'em Guessin'

People lash out at things that they don't understand and at things that scare them. It's rather clear that liberals don't understand and therefore are scared of Sarah Palin. Since she came out of the proverbial woodwork of Alaska and onto the national scene of a Presidential campaign, the media has lashed out at her like hungry wolves waiting for any chance to pounce. Remember her wardrobe, for example? The media highlighted the Republican National Committee’s purchase of $150,000 in clothes for Palin, even though the dresses would be donated to charities. The story was page-one for The New York Times. Yet, Barack Obama’s trips to Hawaii on a chartered Boeing 757 cost $800,000 and received appreciative "nods" from the media. Then Presidential Candidate Obama used a Boeing 757 for two trips to Hawaii over the summer for a vacation and to visit his failing grandmother. Palin being a modest person without a wardrobe to withstand 24/7 campaigning had clothes gi
