Happy Birthday George and Abe!

I'm so glad that George Washington and Abraham Lincoln were born. What with the whole American Revolution and Civil War situations. I'm glad they were around then and were able to lead our country in ways that changed the course of history. They were two amazing men whose determination and strength brought them from humble beginnings to the White House and into our history books and those of our great-grandchildren. So thanks, and happy birthday George and Abe. Oh, and thanks for the day off.

Because I love free days off. You know. The kind that have no ulterior motives. I don't have to buy any gifts or make any special meals. I don't have to be anywhere at any specific time. I don't have to do anything if I don't want to. It's just a day off. Which is just what I need today. My house is clean. My family is well. My taxes are filed. My blog is posted. So now I'm going to go snuggle with my daughter (the only other one who is up this early...and the reason I am), drink my vanilla chai latte, and read a good book.

Happy President's Day!

i love four day weekends. and, you're right, george and abe were great. i'm glad no one has made a time machine, brought george to the present to settle a dispute, which ended up getting him killed. that would be bad.
