I know some people first read this blog looking for political commentary. Two things: first, we started this blog to write about positive things in life - self improvement, money management, life experiences - and second, I really have nothing positive to say about this campaign season. I'm not particularly excited about either candidate for president, though I'll hold my nose and vote for McCain over Obama based off the insanity I hear from Obama. I just can't bring myself to write a lot about this year anymore because there is too much out there as it is, and I can't add anything meaningful to the mix. So, rather than stump for someone I don't have a lot of passion for, or share my views on someone I think will be at best incompetent and at worst a terrifying person to have as president, I would prefer to focus on good things in my own life and the life of my children. I do apologize, sincerely and with no ill will, if my recent posts have grown boring as a result. I write my posts as much for myself as for anyone else. Feel free to keep reading, though. I appreciate any comments I get.
