Back to our regularly scheduled lives...

... sort of. Oh no, this blog is not going away. If anything I'm hoping it will get better and add a contributor or two. But as you can probably tell, things have slowed down.

There is someone who is probably more relieved this election cycle is over than anyone - my girlfriend. Not because of the politics and not because we've finally come to a conclusion and Bush is the winner (although, she is extremely satisfied with the outcome). No, she's felt neglected the past couple months and has endured my anxiety willingly, even if it did not always come out simply as anxiety. She's handled me well during both the political and football seasons at the sametime. I cannot say the same for myself. Starting yesterday she had returned to her old self and I'm going to take it as a sign that I have, too (phew).

I'll admit, this has been the most stressful 3-4 months of my life. I love my country and believe it is a gift from my Creator, Yahweh, the Great I Am, and is Heaven on Earth. I would find it unbearable to see its safety put in the hands of an appeaser and global socialist in such a crucial period of our history on my watch. No, I was never really in doubt about the outcome of the election and was quick to reassure my gloomy compatriots when Drudge decided to run with those phony exit poll numbers. Even then I was never in doubt, but there was still an anxiety that would not cease. You know what it was? The constant barrage that such a good man like George W. Bush has to continually endure.

Anyway, back to my girlfriend. So, she's been neglected, somewhat - maybe not as much as she might like for me to think, but negelected all the same. Now that it's over and she has survived my obsession and focus on this election she has been rewarded: She received and surprise promotion and raise, today. God is good.

See you soon!
