News, Brought to You by caramama

So, there are some news items that I feel like sharing with you beautiful people.

First, the weather report: Last night, the roads iced over pretty completely. They were not de-iced by this morning, and now there is supposed to be more snow/sleet/ice this afternoon. I decided to I'm working from home today (I don't do it often, but I do have the benefit of telecommuting when weather is bad). However, I forgot I had a meeting at 11! I had to call a coworker to peek into the meeting room and ask if we could reschedule. Luckily, they said that would be no problem, but it was a big "D'oh" for me.

Now, sporting/entertainment news: Did you hear about who won the Westminster Dog Show? The beagle won Best in Show! About time a beagle won the show! And Uno is super cute, although not as cute as my beagle.

How about political news: Well, yesterday was the Potomac Primaries. I'm happy to say that Londo and I got out and voted, even though the ground was starting to ice over. Obama swept MD, VA and DE (as did McCain), which gives him the lead over Clinton. I haven't been talking politics on my blog, because others have been doing it better than I ever could. But in case you all were wondering, I voted for Clinton but would be happy with either Clinton or Obama. I'm not anti-McCain either, but I'm definitely a democrat. But I have friends who are republicans and so are most of my family. So no need to run away screaming from my blog. :-)

And finally, personal news: My in-laws have been visiting, so last night they watched the Pumpkin and put her to bed. And Londo and I went out for dinner AND a movie!!! Wooohooo! We've been out oh maybe three or four other evenings since the baby was born, but each was with other friends. This was our first date night just the two of us since the baby was born. It was so nice! We had Thai food and then saw the second National Treasure movie. And last night, the baby slept through the night.

And that's the news according to caramama! I hope you all are doing well.

Wow, good for you for getting a date night!!!
And Uno sure was cute...but you're right. Probably not as cute as yours!

Yeah, I've being avoiding the political elephant (or, in my case, donkey) in the room over at my blog, too. I'm not sure why, because I'll happily ramble on about other things that other people cover better than I do....

Hooray for beagles and sleeping babies! I need to read more about the candidates now and decide who I dislike the least :)
