Hey all — I am back! I had a jam-packed and fun two weeks with my family out east.
First, I stopped at Reading, Pennsylvania to visit my uncle and two cousins from my mother’s side of the family and an aunt and two cousins from my father’s side of the family. I managed to fit in one MotherTalkers reunion with “ginabad”. Stay tuned for pics!
Every day I had something planned with my four cousins, two kids and niece. Luckily, I rented a Dodge Caravan so we’d all fit. LOL!
Then I rented another seven-seater in New Hampshire to shuttle around DH, the kids, Eu (my niece), and my sister Nidia. I also visited my parents, grandmother, brother and his girlfriend of nine years. I will definitely update you on everyone and include pics.
In the meantime, the one news story I paid attention to while away was the Paul Ryan pick for Mitt Romney’s VP. Of course, I am no fan of his Ayn Randesque policies as they would hurt women with children. I will post news stories as I see them.
When I got back, this news story on MSN about the University of Colorado actually having dorms for students with concealed weapons permits caught my eye. Is this insane or what? Would you permit your child to stay in a dorm with other students who have guns? We don’t let these kids legally drink — although they certainly do anyway — and we are okay with letting them have firearms?? This reminds of the Daily Show episode about the bar owner who actually had to defend his stance on no guns at a bar full of drunk people.
What else is in the news? What’s up with you?
