Day on the Couch, Final Debate

Wednesday, October 15, 2008
I was so sick today it was obvious as soon as I woke up that Landon would have to stay home from work to take care of me and the kids. Every muscle in my body ached, I had chills, and felt nauseous, only able to sip on water. I slept more than I have in years, and spent the entire day on the couch. It's too bad it takes getting a virus like I have to force me into taking care of myself and getting some rest. Even though I was sick, it felt so good to sleep for four hours straight this afternoon. Here's what Landon and the kids were up to while I slept:

After going to Costco to stock up on wet wipes, Landon took the kids to Custer Park, home of one of Sam's favorite merry-go-rounds in the city of Portland.

Also home of some of the best hills for chasing hulas.

Juniper still has a cold, but unlike us adults, colds rarely sap the energy out of my two kids, and she happily played right alongside Sam.

Another spin on the merry-go-round.

And then it was home in time for the debate party. This would have been the fourth time I hosted a debate party, but I had to cancel since I was sick. Landon and I watched, and entertained Sam (a.k.a. kept him quiet) with the help of youtube and a bowl of popcorn. All the networks are reporting Obama won the debate by a large margin in post-debate polling. I thought it was a good debate--the best of all three. As we move closer to November 4th, I hope everyone who is registered will vote. Registrations are up in Colorado, a former red state, now possibly turned blue (if you can believe the polls) due to new Democratic registrations outnumbering new Republican registrations there 3 to 1. This has been an extremely interesting political season, and is bound to get even more interesting as Election Day approaches. So hang on, enjoy the ride, stay informed, and don't forget to vote!

Aw, hope you're feeling better soon, Karli!

I woke up with the first signs of a cold bug myself this morning ... must be that time of year!
