A total aside to the barely-started post below...

There are many times in my life that I really can relate to the characters Lilo and Stitch. I have not been perfect, or close to it. I know I have been down right a pain at times. But I want sooooo badly to make things right, and do things right, and have a cute family that I do fun things with in our tidy house. But things are always a little off and not quite what I am for. Sometimes it's just a matter of quirkiness, sometimes it's an epic fail. But I have good intentions, and I really do want the happy family that I dream of. It's like I have all the parts, the instructions, and I can see all the other models working well....but still can't get the pieces put together right. So I just have to wing it and hope for the best.


I just read this post on "Mama is" . I haven't read the article yet, because I'm sure it will stir up some emotions in me that I am not wanting to work with this morning.

More thoughts on this when I have a chance - normally I would make a post like this private, then come back to it later, but blogger does not have such an option. :-(

This is brilliant!

Tomorrow's election is so frighteningly important.

I'm holding so much hope and prayers on Obama winning and on Prop. 8 being beaten.

I have a Halloween photo post to put up, but there is also 3/4s of a house to clean up, laundry to sort, a muddy Mads to keep an eye out for (he's outside playing in the rain, but tends to want to come in on a moments notice). Also, I'm damn anxious about tomorrow and want to go back to my denial world of cleaning and planning my studio. I'm a bit wound up and ill feeling when I think about all that tomorrow is going to offer. Our little family-world has a lot going on as it is, and then there's voting on top of it.

I may not be a drinker, but I might pick up a beer tomorrow after voting. I hope I will be drinking it while celebrating.
