I'm voting for...


Want to know why? Because McCain supporters don't continue to harrass me over and over and over again; on the cell phone, at my house, on my home phone. Yesterday I got three calls from "The Obama Campaign" between 7 and 8pm. A few nights ago someone called my cell phone, MY cell phone, at 7:30pm and asked for my husband... Say what? How the freakin' hell did you get MY cell phone number and attach my husbands name to it?

A few weekends ago Hubby and I were setting up some new living room furniture (pics coming soon) and my drill ran out of batteries. I go to the car to get Hubby's drill he uses for work (and no, he's not a construction worker). On my way back inside these two people walk up to me and say "Hi, are you Katy?" I start looking around like I've just been Punk'd and say, "Uh.......yes?" Low and behold, they were campainging for Obama. They start asking me questions like Who are you voting for, what are your hot-button issues and what will you be naming your first child?

My answers were "I don't know who I'm voting for, my hot-button issues are soliciting and political ambushes and I'm NOT naming my first child Barack."

Give it a rest people!! I don't know who I'm voting for. I'm a fence rider and agree a little on both sides. But I will tell you one thing: calling me and coming by my house will NOT help me vote for your candidate. In fact, it's actually just pissing me off.

And by the way, how did you get all my information???!

Sick Today

I don't know if it's allergies or a cold or both, but I'm not feeling well today. Between it being insanely quiet around here and lord knows what's going on with the company, I just want to go home. I have stuff to do I just have no motivation to do it :)

It probably doesn't help that I didn't get to bed until 11:30ish last night due to an Avalanche game. But it was the first preseason game of the year and it was fun!

Economy in the crapper

So let me start off by talking about the crap hole this country is in right now and the fact the government is bailing companies out of the hole they've worked themselves into.

I understand that if the government doesn't help bail out Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae, Bear Sterns, Lehman Brothers and Merrill Lynch to the tune of $700,000,000,000 then our country could go into a tail spin and end up in another Great Depression. I get that. What I don't get is how two of these companies (Merrill Lynch and Lehman) survived the depression in the 1920's but somehow are in trouble NOW.

I'm sorry you ran your multi-billion dollar companies into the ground but tell me again why that's the citizen of America's problem? CNN said that if the government gets this money by tax payers dollars then every man, woman and child would owe the government $3,200....each.

Gee, I'm glad we got that $600 stimulus check a few months ago...

I'm a Bad Blogger

I've been a bad blogger lately. Things have been crazy busy since early August with my sister getting married, my company has been in chaos and Steve and I have been doing more things to the house.

Beth's wedding on September 6th went pretty well. Besides dodging hurricanes, her photographer quitting two days before the wedding and a potential speeding ticket, things went relatively well. Beth and Erick got married around sunset on Fort Myers Beach. It was beautiful, minus the fire ants :) I kept my composure during the actual wedding but turned into Mrs. WaterWorks during my toast. What can I say? I'm a sap.

This is the view from the gazebo the reception was held at. They got married right in front of it. It was gorgeous and very relaxing.

My beautiful sister and her husband after the wedding at sunset.

This cake held up like a champ. We picked it up at 10am and realized it wouldn't fit in the fridge in our hotel room. We placed it in front of the ac and cranked it up. Then at 4:00 we had to bring it to the wedding site and the poor thing sat in the 95 degree humid Florida weather until 8:00 when Beth and Erick cut it. It fell apart shortly after their ceremonial cake cutting.

This is my new brother-in-law (left) and his best man Wilson. Wilson was teaching Erick how to dip Beth the night before the wedding on the beach.

It's a crab!! I know, it's lame to get so excited but come on; I like in Colorado, I don't get to see little crabs running around on the beach!

Besides all that, it was nice to see my sister and get to hang out with her and Erick for awhile. I made friends with some of her bridesmaids and I think the best time I had the whole vacation (besides seeing my one and only sister get married) was the night before everyone left to go home. Brandon, Heather, Andrea, Dustin, and I sitting on the beach behind my hotel. It was really dark at the water line and the only light was the moon and stars. We all dragged pool chairs out to the water and sat right at the line so our feet got wet. We talked and talked until around 2:00 am. It was lovely :)
