After a long 3 1/2 days, the 2020 Presidential election is over. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are our President and Vice President elects. I am thrilled we have our first female VP, and not only that, a woman of color! No matter which side of the political spectrum you fall on, today is monumental. It sends a message to girls and women alike that YES WE SURE CAN do whatever we set our minds to! History is made and I am glad to get to have voted in this historical election and be part of it.
It is my hope that this is the last presidential election where the nominees are white men. I’m also hopeful that we will have a Libertarian to be able to join the debates and make a good run on the ticket.
Big day today, I had my friend Whitney come over and do a few headshots and then we got a few pics of me and Moxie. I’m excited to do Christmas cards this year; but also update my photo for my Scentsy stuff.
Then my former high school English teacher, Upward Bound mentor and pretty much my biggest cheerleader outside of my family, Mrs. Clark stopped by. She brought me some amazingly warm mittens and scarf she made, a very pretty cake plate, and a few gifts even for Moxie! It was so nice to visit with her. She is such a sweetie and offered to watch Moxie if I needed to be gone for an extended time. She’s got a 2 year old labradoodle. Seriously it’s an amazingly sweet offer.
We took a little nap, then went out and our next door neighbor is so awesome, he works at the prison, and his daughters came out and ran around with Mox for about 45 minutes, she’s currently passed out next to me. We’re watching 9-1-1. I hadn’t ever heard of it, and started watching it after I moved here. I’m slowly making my way through it, and enjoying it.
Tomorrow Em, and Aiden are coming up, not sure if Chris is, but I’m excited to see them! We have puppy kindergarden in the afternoon.
I’m really failing at this crate training thing, but I bought another crate to keep one on the main floor and one upstairs, and I am vowing to work harder at. I’ve read a few more things to hopefully help me. I know I need to stick with it and it takes time but it breaks my heart when she whines! I know it’s easier on her than me. She will eventually love it. I know it takes time.
