Today we had a fairly decent day. I got up before the alarm went off. The kids got up and ready without a fuss. We got out of the house this morning without any problems and I didn't forget anything or have to make any extra trips back to Gage's school! It would have been a great day, if it weren't for this stinking headache. Day 2 today. I believe it's a sinus headache because I am so stuffed up. I still have a nasty sounding cough, but without the chest pain now.

Scott is in Northern Iowa for some meetings and is due back late tomorrow night. He is looking forward to Friday. Apparently Barrack Obama is going to be in North Dakota on Friday (Grand Forks I believe?) and Scott has tickets to his rally. As far as I know he has never been to anything like this and he is really excited about it. I'd go with him if it were Hillary! :-)

After lunch today Emma and I went to the library. Last night she couldn't go to sleep and on her last trip up to see me she said, "Mom, can we go to that place where they have books and videos?" "You mean the library Emma?" "YEAH!" We went after lunch and she picked out a pile of books, played with the puzzles and picked out a couple of DVD's. I guess Gage had told her to pick him out a video and some books. She picked a video for him, but not a book. I told him he should have asked me, I would have loved to get him some books. We just finished reading Junie B. Jones Jingle Bells Batman smells (and P.S. so does May!). It was a funny book. I wish there were more available. We have gotten all of the Junie B. books read and are anxiously awaiting a new book to come out. Emma loves them just as much as Gage. She isn't much into chapter books yet, unless it's Junie B.

I have been amazed at how well Gage and Emma have gotten along in the last 2 days. (I'm knocking on wood) Today after school they were sitting on the couch watching television and Gage was leaned up against her and she had her arm around him. If I had had my camera, that certainly would have been a Kodak moment! I'm sure it will never happen again!

Now Hillary is coming to GF too if you REALLY want to see her. Now he'll get to see both probably! Barack should be interesting...actually the whole rally will be an experience he'll enjoy!
