I've been meaning to blog on the John Edwards trial.  You probably aren't aware - but I was obsessed with it.  I got into it so deep that I actually found transcripts of voice mails that he left for that other creepy character in the drama, Andrew Young.  

I know.  It's pathetic.  Not just the salaciousness of the trial - but the fact that I followed it so closely.  I'm not even sure why I'm mentioning it now.  I sometimes just have to get things off my chest - and you never know when I'll blurt them out.  I told Kevin a couple of weeks ago and he just stared at me.  That's it - just a stare.  No comment from him.  (I'm hoping he just didn't hear me and felt no reason to ask me what I said.)

The whole group of players are a bunch of odd balls - and I'm obviously including John Edwards.  I'm also including the daughter that showed up every day with him for the trial.  Really Kate?  

I know that we all make mistakes and lord knows I've made some - but I would never expect family or friends to have to show public support in the way that she did.  You can still love your Dad, Kate...but some integrity for your mom - or is there any left in that family.

I'm sure you also expected a much longer post on Obama's statement about his support for same-sex marriage.  I actually thought his words said it all.  It's nice to know that the person sitting in the oval office - thinks my relationship should be equal legally to his.  I could have written for days about the ridiculousness of the reaction from the typical "anti" folks - but they didn't say anything new - so why even bother!

We're off to Bend this weekend.  Thanks to friends/neighbors who are giving us the key to their house.  I promise we won't break anything - or at least that we will replace whatever we do break.

Nine more days of school for Kindergarten year.  That's nine more days of making Caden's lunch - until we start all over again in September.
