Location: Palm Beach County, Florida, United States

Recently have been told I look like Mary Ann from Gilligan's Island. I hadn't heard that in years, but that is a good place to start as to what I look like, although she had a better bod. I have three boys and have been married for 13 years. Born of a Navy family, in Hawaii, one Mom, one Dad, one sister and one brother. The eldest of three children. BS in Applied Mathematics. Consider Pensacola my home town although I moved every 2-3 years of my life growing up. Currently work in the aerospace industry in an engineering position while being a Mom. Of Celtic heritage and very proud of it.

Keeping it Light on Election Day

In the car this morning, while taking the eldest boys to school, Son#2 said to me,

"Mom, is the reason we're voting for George Bush because John Kerry is married to a Jerkweed?"

Heh. I had to laugh. Evidently I have not held back on how I feel about Mrs. Teresa Heinz Kerry. And y'all thought my feelings towards 'the Heiress' were all just a big ploy to get more readers for my blog.... *Big Grin*

Have I mentioned lately how much I LOVE the way you raise your children?!?!

Priceless. Absolutely priceless.

Jerkweed! I loved that! But it almost sounded like it could be included in another of your posts.

Which, BTW, I loved also. If you spend any time around me or my family, you are bound to hear quotes like that!

LOL! I kinda hope you told him

"No honey, it's not because he's MARRIED to a Jerkweed. More like he IS a Jerkweed. He's married to a loose lipped, overindulged, housewife-hating hag."

Ok, maybe following my parenting advice isn't one of the smarter moves.

That's pretty good, around here I'm glad there's no children. My language can just flow out free and easy.

Jerkweed, has a good ring to it. Just the thought of that woman is like fingernails on a blackboard. Ewww!

Heh. That's one insightful pop you have there.

I didn't vote for Bush solely because of Heinz Kerry, but damn, she didn't help any. Labeling people who disagree with you "idiots" and "scumbags" - did she hone her debating skills on
