This weekend was a fun one. The boys were home for three days and my husband was off too since he works for UPS and there was no delivery on Monday. I know.. booooooo! We want our goods when we order them. It's relief for him though.
Sunday was a giant bbq pool party at our Aunt Mary Ann and Uncle Dave's home. Man, this family likes to eat and talk politics! Hot dogs, hamburgers, sausage and peppers, pasta salad, fruit salad, chips and dip. Too much! Between the sun - the kids - and the food I was wiped early and retired before anyone was ready to stop for the day telling Michael it was time to go!
It's so funny how different members of my family are so argumentative when it comes to politics. I simply keep my mouth closed but I end up getting so mad when I'm listening to points of view that I literally have to excuse myself. I won't ever share my vote with either my blog readers or my family. My husband knows which party I prefer and I'm going to keep it that way. I went on Etsy's forums over the weekend and there was a heated debate about a business putting an extra in a package that someone ordered that had an Obama card or something like that in the package. Most people thought it was uncalled for or rude while the others sorta shrugged about it and wouldn't seem to mind. That's when I started searching Etsy for McCain and Obama items to see which there were more of. I found DIY or DIE on my hunt and they have a little bit of everything for each party. Get your items while they are hot!
According to my search via tags on Etsy if you type in "John McCain" you will find 3 pages of items. If you type in "Barack Obama" you will 31 pages of items. Hmm? I wonder if this means anything? Probably not! Guess will have to hold out to see what the popular vote will be. Until then you can duel it out with this fabulous candidate finger puppets from Abbey Christine.
Keep in mind that we are all allowed to follow our own beliefs. I just can't believe how strong people get when it comes to this. Like, actually yelling and getting excited. It's so not normal for me. I think it's great that people believe in things but when I see the anger and the fighting I get uncomfortable. Do you feel the same way about politics or are you passionate about them?
