My kids are obsessed with the election. I was just watching MSNBC (hoping to figure out which interest rate they cut) and they were talking about Hilary Clinton and I heard Spencer say "BARACK O-BAMA" (frankly, I think they like his name better, which is fine with me if Clinton wins I will never have my name for myself again). On the phone with my mom, Conner asked my mom if she had considered John McCain. I don't really talk about the election with them. They do know that Mitt Romney (who Spencer can sight on TV) is LDS but I have said that we don't for a person based on their religion, but by who we think will be a better president. Anyway, it's very amusing. It does make me happy that they're interested in the news, I know I wasn't way back then. Except of course, when Dave Magelby was on TV talking about it because A) I loved his bow tie and B) I knew him.
In other news Drew got home at 9:30 last night. They only got in about 5 hours of skiing, and only one wreck for their car. Thankfully, Drew wasn't driving. He had a great time, but he didn't call me at all the entire day, and I spent a fair amount of it stressed about how he was doing (bad worrying -- bad, bad worrying). That is neither here nor there. However, we had a talk on Sunday night about how all people keep score cards. If I had a girlfriend who was always taking from me and never giving, it probably wouldn't be a relationship that I would stay in. A marriage is similar, although you have to have a very forgiving with your scorecard, I think we all have one. Drew has gotten a fair amount as of late and I was sort of complaining about that on the phone (again bad me). Drew thought it was unfair to even have the scorecard. I said it's human nature to try and equalize relationships, at least to some extent. What do you guys think? Do you have a scorecard in your marriage? If your husband has a day with the guys, do you think you deserve a day for yourself?
