I was reading in the paper today about Obama wanting to make the white house “green”!! YAY!  Seriously if we talk and talk about making a healthier place to live, the President should have been the first to jump on board and do what he can around him, starting with where he lives. The interviewer asked a question like “so will you be going around at night turning off lights?”, now why not, if that is his choice then why not? It saves energy. Just because he’s the president doesn’t mean he can and should waste whatever he wants whereever he can.

I know here we make sure everything is only plugged into a socket when it needs to be used. No Ghost engergy suckers in this house! If it saves engergy, makes the world a little healthier and saves money than go for it. The even tiniest steps add up.

So I give kudos to Obama, I just hope it goes through.

So this was my first time voting. I never liked politics, well actually I hated them and I still do.  Last night as I stood in line for 2 hours to vote, with my feet killing me and me having to pee, by the time I actually got to a booth  I knew who I was going to vote for and who I wasn’t.

I voted for a liberal underdog, Bob Barr. The tough things was though knowing how close it’d be here in my state if I should vote for Obama-Biden since there was absolutely no way I’d vote for McCain-Palin( I knew that from the start, especially with Palin behind him). But in the end I choosed what I wanted and just hoped while watching ABC that McCain would not be winning. So YAY!

I asked PUnkyroo while I was nursing her in bed who she thought would win Obama or McCain, even thought she’s 2 I was curious to what she’d say, and what do you know…Obama!
