weekends go by so fast

After I finished the grocery shopping this afternoon, I decided to make two dishes that I haven't baked in a while. Lasagna and apple pie. The lasagna turned out perfect and went well with the spinach salad we had for dinner. The pie on the other hand turned out looking kind of strange and the apples were a little bit undercooked. It still tasted pretty good with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

We Did and We Can

We are progressing. It is a wonderful feeling being on the winning side of an election and having a candidate that I am not only emotionally, but also for the first time financially invested in. I am one of Obama’s small first time donors. Barack Obama had my vote a couple of days before the Iowa caucus. Seeing him and listening to a message that I have believed in all my life. The idea that this country has the ability to change and move towards a more perfect union.

It is a bitter sweet victory as a gay American witnessing on the same day the anti-gay marriage and adoption measures pass in a number of states. I am hopeful that this idea that we are some kind of threat to societies moral values will change someday too. I believe it will. I believe we can!
