What would you do???

Recently Mrs. FedEx Nut (formerly Mrs. NASCAR Nut) came to me with a look of worry on her face. She is having some medical issues, ones that made her nervous enough to worry about what would happen if she was no longer with us. She and I have 2 daughters (13 & 6) together. They both live with her, but I am still very much a part of their lives. I also have a son (19) from a previous marriage that she counts as one of her children too.

Mr. FedEx Nut has a son (20) and 2 daughters (12 & 8) from a previous marriage. Together they have a son (3). Mrs. FN knows that if she is gone, I will take good care of my girls. My girls have nothing to worry about there. Mrs. FN’s worry was more about the youngest son. She was worried that I wouldn’t let my girls still spend time with their littlest brother. Being as how I have already had many times that I’ve considered letting him come spend the weekend with the girls and I, I don’t feel that he and his sisters would become strangers to each other.

But this did open up a new train of thought. A tangent on the original idea. What if something were to happen to Mr. & Mrs. FN at the same time? Who would take care of the littlest FN? I can see this becoming my role, but it still seems weird in a way. The littlest FN came to be while Mrs. FN was still Mrs. NN. That situation has tons to do with her and I being over. But this is not Lil FN’s fault.

Hopefully none of this will matter, but I am curious what others think of this situation. It really is kinda out there. Hopefully Mrs. FN’s medical issues will be less of a worry to her than she is making them to be currently. She will know more by February.

Lady Eleanor Stole is finished!

Sort of. She's got the fringe completely finished on 1 side and with the other side just hanging on. It's really hard making all the pretty knots as well as it taking way more attention and time; it needs to be spread on the couch to complete such a deed and the dogs are intent on sitting on Lady Eleanor regardless of my shouts to get off, don't do that, knock it off, etc.

No front runners yet!

With Hillary winning 3 primaries thus far and Obama just 2, the latter has his sights set on South Carolina which will tie them yet again.

McCain and Romney seem to be duking it out and Huckabee only won the 1 primary though I would love to see him get the nomination because I believe him to be highly unelectable therefore Democrat would be easily elected.

But people, with the way votes are going to Hillary and Obama, it's very clear the US wants change and greatly anticipates a new direction come November 2nd (technically January when the new prez is inaugurated).

It is my opinion that an Hillary/Obama ticket would be worth voting for.

My staunch republican of a co-worker thinks Stephen Colbert is a "comedian who's republican so he has a republican slant on things."


Just thinking about her saying it sends me into fits of hysteria due to the intense irony of her declaration.

"...Colbert (playing the blowhard pundit)"

How can I not relish in this very simple display of my co-workers intense lack of intelligence?
