Obama's Nice Guy Act Gets Him No Where

"When he entered office, US President Barack Obama promised to inject US foreign policy with a new tone of respect and diplomacy. His recent trip to Asia, however, showed that it's not working. A shift to Bush-style bluntness may be coming."


I think this is my most favorite article I have ever read. Unlike most articles, it gets better and better as you read through it, with the best part being the ending.

Superwoman - Redeux

My meds are finally working again. We had to up the dose twice, but I am finally Superwoman again. It sux that it took over a month, but I am so thankful to be right again.

How do I know? Well, it is 3 pm and here is what I have done so far today (not necessarily in chronological order):

Made coffee
Fed Brytin
Introduced him to the Muppets
Watched Little Bill (my FAVORITE kid's show)
Fed Brytin
Deep-cleaned my kitchen from top to bottom
Helped Brytin paint a piggy bank
Painted a key holder
Fed Brytin
Sewed a hem into a table runner
Ironed the table runner
Plucked my eyebrows
Decorated the house for Thanksgiving
Create an art scrapbook of my drawings
Grocery-shopped *
Taught Brytin how to embroider
Fed Brytin
Prepped everything to embroider my apron
Watched a couple football games (intermittenly)

After I am done typing this blog, I will begin to prepare dinner. I am planning to make a chicken braid. I haven't made it in like seven years; I hope Chris likes it :)

*I found a new grocery store called Save-a-Lot. They're not kidding. For $70 I got the following:
Cookie Sheet
2 lbs bananas
1 pkg Rolls
1 pkg Rice-a-Roni
1 lb tub of margarine
1 bag carrots
28 lbs of cat litter
1 bag celery
1 bag shredded cheese
1 no-bake cheesecake mix
2 cans mushroom gravy
2 cans corn
1 can cranberry sauce
1 pkg crescent rolls
2 lbs fig newtons
An 8 lb Ham
1 btl BBQ sauce
1 head lettuce
1 box turkey sausage
1/2 gal milk
1 can mushroom pieces
1 box onion soup mix
2.5 lbs oranges
1 lb onions (that I didn't actually purchase, the bastards just charged me for)
2 cans pears
.5 lbs red peppers
1 can cherry pie filling
8 lbs sweet potatoes
10 lbs potatoes
1 bag pretzels
1 loaf white bread
1 pckg cinnamon rolls
2 reusable shopping bags (I'm NOT green, but this ghetto grocery store charges for plastic bags, so I figured I might as well buy the cloth ones)
4 sticks butter
1 box Stove Top
1 btl Sunny D
5 pckgs Kool-Aid
1 box Tuna Helper
1 loaf wheat bread

Call me crazy, but that is a LOT of groceries for $70

Go Superwoman!!

Interesting Article

I came across an interesting article this morning, "White House Shrinks Hanukkah Party."

I didn't hear any actual announcement straight from the White House, so I do not know their reasoning. I can assume that it has to do with the economy, but I definitely agree with the Jerusalem Post's opine that the decision will probably "feed feelings" of anti-semitism from the Obama Administration.
