My post on Mike Huckabee has generated 3 comments from people I’ve never heard of. Thus is the political climate around here. At least one of them is clearly paid by the Romney campaign to refute posts who support Huckabee. Let’s get one thing straight – I do not support Huckabee. Nor Romney. Nor any of that bunch. I think that Bill Richardson is the best candidate, though he bragged about being supported by the NRA, so maybe he’s not even that good. I will vote for Democratic nominee in the general election whomever he or she may be. Huck’s a bit of a nut, as far as I am concerned.
Anyway, in other news, Christmas is rapidly approaching! I’m pretty much done with my shopping, though still want to get a few more little things, including print out some pictures. I need to get that done quickly, as I’m planning to head up to Mishicot on the 23rd, then down to Milwaukee on the 24th. Both those days will most likely be out as far as serious shopping goes. I guess that leaves me just the 22nd to get shopping wrapped up, and gifts wrapped as well (though I could easily do that on the 23rd or 24th). Still, pretty crazy! Without being at home, with a mother who actually decorates for holidays, there is most definitely something lacking in my holiday cheer. I get more excited for the time off from working than I do for the holiday itself.
I went out snow shoeing on my own on Tuesday. Without Lauren there to keep my pace at a reasonable level, I was exhausted by the time I finished. Halfway thru the walk, I had to take off my hat because I was so hot. Snow was melting on my jeans making them wet. But wow, what a rush! You’re not going that fast, but it feels like you are flying over the snow. And each step seems more rewarding, as there is no glide, like there is in cross-country skiing. You put in work for those steps. And my arms were more sore after snow shoeing than they have been lately from lifting weights at the gym.
Also, I’m planning to see No Country for Old Men tonight with Tony. Finally!
