Y'all, I know. It's been awhile. Honestly, there hasn't been much to say. Work, home, work, home, work, home. You guys know how it is.
I've read some good books - Supreme Courtship by Christopher Buckley, Dark Lady by Richard North Patterson, and I am currently reading The Brass Verdict by Michael Connelly (could be the best one yet). I've watched some good TV - finished out Mad Men for the season - completely excellent, fell in love with Damian Lewis in Life once again, and found great television on FX with Sons of Anarchy. I re-acquainted myself with Jon Stewart's brilliance and began DV-R'ing The Daily Show....this election cycle has certainly provided him some great fodder.
And speaking of - I have completely immersed myself in this election. I know this isn't an original statement, but I don't think I have ever cared so much about the outcome of an election. It has been a fascinating 21 months, that is for sure. I don't know what I am going to do with myself once the election is over - what will I watch in the morning? What will I read on the Internet? What did I do before this election?
I have made some good friends in the last few months that have solidified my feeling that I think I want to stick around for awhile. The Fort is a good place to be....and is better when you have smart, funny, compassionate people around you.
We are steps closer to having a kiddo in our arms. We transferred our adoption from China to South Korea, and hope to travel to get that little guy or girl by the end of 2009. We have names picked out for either option (Jackson or Maya), and look forward to the day when we can start buying clothes and decorating the nursery.
So, there you go. That's what I have been up to recently. How 'bout you?
Oh yeah - DON'T FORGET TO VOTE!!
I'm fired up...and ready to go!
