Obama, Bowling, Puke and Carpet

So the Internet is all a buzz today regarding Obama's remark on the Late Show last night. Rightly so, he made a huge mistake in correlating his poor bowling abilities to the Special Olympics. Our blogger friend Sarah wrote a wonderful letter to the President that sums up how many of us feel today. I am sorely disappointed in our leader and it will take more than a apology via another person to make up for it.

I have my hands full with my own domestic matters today. Eleanor's runny nose and cough caused me enough concern that I took her to the Ped today. She has her very first ear infection. :( Poor thing has just been miserable. After we got home, I sat down to nurse her, she stopped for a sec to cough and coughed so hard she threw up all over herself and me. I have officially been puked on by all of my children. I took her into the bathroom to strip us down for a quick shower and, lucky me, she had the runs too! Ugh! Aidan found it very amusing.

By the way, he is home from school today because last night he had a fever of 101.5 and has started the coughing bit as well. Give Sean a couple days and I am sure he will catch it. Joy!

In the meantime, our carpet installation got delayed a week due to a shipping set back, so I guess it's a good thing I can't get any painting done for a few days while I fight the sickies. Umm, TGIF?

I've twitted Sarah's post - it's awesome. She's my new hero.

I hope the puke stops before the carpet comes. Ugh, bad day.

I hope everyone is feeling better soon and the carpet comes after the puke sotps. Puke is just the pits.

During the campaign for the White House in 2008, the media criticized Palin for being ‘common,’ and ‘not presidential.’ However, compare Sarah Palins attitude in this video created three weeks ago for the Special Olympics in Boise, Idaho.

You decide the more ‘presidential’ among them:

I hope everyone feels better soon! It is so tiring to have sick kids. Good luck!
