Tweeted out

So, it's been a while, huh?

I didn't intend to take such a long blogging break, but I guess I needed one.

One reason for the break is that I've been investigating a lot of online/social media type of stuff at work (such as twitter, facebook, and zinch) so I think I've been reaching my limit on the whole internet thing during the day, then I have no interest in getting on the computer at night. I am really enjoying my job, but it's funny how, when your work starts to actually become one of the main things you enjoy, then you stop wanting to do that thing in your leisure time.

Anyway, here I am, and hopefully I'll be back to blogging on a more regular basis.

I have many Kaitlyn stories that have happened during my little break - I'll share more of them later on, but wanted to leave you with at least one for today.

After our trip to the ER we had a fairly normal week, until we got to Thursday morning. We noticed that Kaitlyn felt a little warm, and sure enough, she had a fever. I stayed home with her and decided to take her to the doctor to make sure everything was ok.

The doctor's verdict was that she had the start of an ear infection, so he gave me a prescription for her. Kaitlyn and I then went to the pharmacy and then went in search of some lunch. The whole ordeal was taking longer than I wanted, and I was so hungry, and I was very distracted as I drove around trying to figure out what to do about lunch.

So, I'm driving along, and Kaitlyn is jabbering away in the back seat, and I'm pretty much ignoring her. That's when I realized she was talking about Barack Obama. And the castle that he lives in, and something about a garden. And a bunch of other opinions that I couldn't understand.


Where does she get this stuff? We don't spend a lot of time discussing politics around her, so it's a mystery to me. Maybe she secretly watches CNN after we go to bed?

I'm looking forward to hearing her thoughts on AIG.

This is awesome! :) I love it when you hear things from your kids you had no idea they would ever think about... We only have PBS at home on the TV, so it's PBSkids or the McNeill/Lehrer News Hour when we watch TV. I think Ingrid has a big crush on "Arock Obama"...she perks up every time he's on the news... She's also very interested that he has 2 little girls. So funny to hear what they pick up. Thanks for sharing the story! :)
