Political Rally?

Obama is coming to the U of O tonight.

I have said to myself for weeks if one of the president-wanna-bees made a stop here, I would go. Especially Senator Obama.

But now I'm not so sure. He won't take the stage until 10 pm. Hubby would want to go too, so we'll have to get a babysitter. Papers at 3am. Four hours of sleep last night. Busiest day of my life today. (Okay, like anyone can know that, and I did make time to BLOG for crying out loud.) Parking will be a nightmare. The arena will be packed with thousands of screaming college students, which makes me really feel every minute of my nearly 33 years. We'll have to get there hours before he speaks . . . .

Maybe I'm getting too old for this kind of thing?
Maybe I just was never that spontaneous to begin with?

If only Desmama lived close . . .

what a bummer... I am so with you though about getting out when it comes to the practicalities.

I guess one good thing about having a husband with opposite political ideas is that I would have been able to go with out having to get a baby sitter... the morning papers would be enough to stop me though.

I'd watch your kids. Yes, I would. Was that how I was supposed to answer? 'Cause I do like Obama, but I'm not sure my support would mean much in a rally, and I'm a pretty pragmatic person when it comes right down to it.

Watching kids, yes, but I thought it would be fun to go with you too. The papers are full of Obama this morning, however, so I think I'll get my fill.

I'm starting to get my fill of the whole business all around . . .
