Well, I’m here to remind you that you’re going to fix the economy because your personal economy is up to you. It's not Washington's job to fix what's going on with you. If you are waiting on Washington to change something, you've got a long wait!
You’re going to give yourself money as a result of your hard work and persistence. Waiting for money to be taken from others and given to you is a spirit of envy, and it's wrong.
I’m not here to tell you who to vote for. But I am here to tell you that the government doesn’t have the capacity to fix your problems. Washington is full of bozos, and I am doing my part to send a lot of them home!
This economic mess is a reality, but we can each only control one thing—our reactions. Does this stuff define you? Only if you let it. The weird thing about the economy is that YOU are the economy! I learned this the hard way. I got my real estate license when I was 18 years old. By the time I was 21, interest rates had risen to 17% fixed-rate … and I still sold houses. How? Because I worked hard.
As bad as USA Today meant a recent article to be about what we think of the suffering economy and upcoming election, I think it’s rather encouraging that no one thinks that President Bush or Barack Obama or John McCain can fix the economy!
This may be the beginning of the biggest level of prosperity this nation has ever known if we don’t look to a candidate to fix our lives. How about we say, "I’m going to vote for the candidate who’s going to fix the nation. I’m going to fix my life, so leave me alone and let me do my own thing."
Don't react based on fear or panic. Don’t look to Washington to fix your problems. Why would you do that? At what point did Bill Clinton fix any of your problems? At what point did he cause you to prosper? At what point did George Bush end your career or cause you to prosper? When did Ronald Reagan fix your problems? Guess what? I liked Reagan the most, and while he was in office, I hit rock bottom and filed bankruptcy—but it wasn’t Reagan’s fault. It was mine.
So when you go to the polls in a few days to cast your vote, don’t get caught up in following a political party or candidate without knowing the issues they support. Do your research so you can make educated decisions.

Elisa has pooped several times on the potty over the last few months, but she has never "got" the peeing concept! So today we went to the Library and got several videos and books on Potty Training!! We spent all afternoon sitting on the potty watching the videos and reading the books. After about an hour of constantly reminding her to stay sitting down... she suddenly got a funny look on her face. I said, did you go?? She looked in the potty and said...No, not yet. I got up and looked and sure enough, she had peed!!!
Here is the proof for all to see!!
She finally got to open her surprise tub crayons that have been sitting on the back of the toilet for almost 2 months now waiting for to go potty! So here she is making beautiful art in the tub!

Elisa kept saying... "Cambri, don't ruin the house...don't break the blocks!"
Cambri seemed surprisingly content in her little house of blocks!

Elisa loves to sing "I am a child of God" and she used to sing..."I am a child of God, and he has sunbeam here!" But just in the last few days she has started singing.".. sent me here." So tonight for FHE we learned about being a child of God and we recorded her singing.. so here is Take 1 and Take 2. Enjoy! Remember to pause or turn off music at the bottom of the page so that you can hear her...she sings quiet!
Elisa and Cambri with Grandma and Papa Hair!
Our sleeping angel!
