Can't we all just get along?

I will say right off I am a conservative.  I will vote for John McCain in November.  I am not a fan of Obama at all.  Now having said that, I did watch some of the DNC last night (mostly because my parents wanted to watch) and I was proud to see Obama accept the Democratic nomination.  I even believe he is a great speaker, and while I don't agree with what he says I do like to hear him speak.  
  Why are some people (who say they are open-minded) the most close-minded?  If you want others to allow you your opinions and beliefs, allow them to have theirs also.  Why feel the need to berate and name-call people who believe differently than you?  If I did that I would have almost no friends, since a lot of them are supporters of Obama.  State your opinion but don't be rude and disrespectful of others opinions.  So there is my blogging soapbox for this week. . .  
Go McCain!

Back home again. . . literally!

  I am now a Fort Wayne girl (again).  The little boys and I moved up here today, back in with my parents.  I am so grateful for the opportunity to stay with them until we find/fix up a place but it is really weird living with my parents again at the age of 27.  One perk is that until the end of the month I have my own bed! woohoo!  Tony works in Indy until the 29th and hopefully will pack up a lot of boxes before I go back down there.  He keeps saying he will be bored :)  
  Austin starts school next Monday.  I am excited for him but a little ~frustrated~ by the lack of communication from his school.   Still don't know his teacher or what room he is in.  I am going in tomorrow and I fell like I will be that "annoying" mother.  Oh well they want parental involvement right?  
   I've been watching Michael Phelps swim and wow that man is such an amazing swimmer!!  I hope he gets all his golds.  Go Team USA!
