Emotionally Moved in Unexpected Ways…

…while watching Kamala Harris accept the VP elect position.

I was excited when the Biden/Harris ticket won! I was at work when I got the news so I couldn’t fully focus on it. I had to run some errands after work but when I got home I turned on the news to watch the victory speech. After listening to Harris for about a minute I started to cry. I was so moved by seeing a woman become the Vice President. We are always told we can do anything as Americans, people, and women – but as we learned 4 years ago that isn’t really true…even if you are far ore qualified for a position. She said ‘I am the first woman in this position but I wont be the last’ and i just lost it. Seeing that strong woman in a leadership position just got me. I thought I might not ever see it. I thought of all the women who fought so hard and still fight so hard to pave that path. It is AMAZING and she is amazing.

Biden then addressed the nation with a wonderful speech about unity and working for the country – not just those who voted for him. That’s a leader.

Of course Marty and I are excited about the first rescue dog being in the White House too!

The work is just starting though – so much to do. Lets get started!

By This Point in My Life I Thought I’d Have…

… a dog!

I have been having serious pangs to adopt a dog or a cat lately. I have always had an animal around from the day I was born. I have been a month without one and I can’t take it. I need a little critter to snuggle and love. There has been a bit of a whole since my roommates pup moved out.

Funny the role our animals (aka fur babies) play in our lives. They are always there – no matter what. There is something hugely comforting in that.

I have been looking at rescue sites. Mind you I can’t really afford it if something goes wrong with this animal which is why I haven’t adopted one. Stupid money!

This time is a little different in my want for a dog though. Part of my huge want for a dog is to adopt one with my dude and take it on walks together, hang out and watch tv together, go to the dog park together. I’ve never had that additive in this want and I am still working it out in my brain. What if we broke up then one of us would never see the dog again?! It’s tricky…

Who knows what will come of my will to adopt a pup? I know this wasn’t my deepest post but it’s what is on my brain at the moment!
