Sorry to be late – I realized after Romney’s speech last night that I had to finish payroll for today. The computer was acting funny, so I had to reboot it – twice – before I could get payroll finished. Just as I was about to go to bed, I realized that the trash had not been taken out, so it was up to me to gather the trash and get the can out to the street. Then I went straight to bed. Didn’t sleep as well as I should have, so I’m running a little late.
Handsome has a birthday celebration this weekend. I get to hang out with the in-laws for a while. His birthday is on Labor Day (appropriate, as his labor was 25½ hours of baby-birthing fun!), but we’ll be celebrating it with mother-in-law on Saturday.
So here we are – the Republican convention is over, the Democrat convention is coming. What did you think of the speeches last night? I thought that there were some very effective, humanizing efforts made to make Romney appear not only capable, but relatable. Of course, I kind of expected him to be wearing a cape when he finally arrived on stage, but that’s to be expected – this was his day, after all. Now the Democrats have their convention time to bash him continuously, with the media lap dogs covering every (white) speaker slavishly.
Will they be effective? Will anyone watch? Will anyone care?
