I had a Slice for the signs of Spring yesterday, but Spring will have to wait! Yesterday we calculated the day and scheduled a movie, a good one, The Yellow Handkerchief, for early in the afternoon so we could be home to watch the play-by-play to Health Care passage.
For weeks I’ve been wishing that I could be a fly on the wall in the Oval Office or somewhere in the offices of the House, or better yet, working somewhere in this chaos of getting the votes for Health Care.
Instead I’m sitting on my couch watching the talking heads.
But back to reality. We were home by 3:00. Still no vote and I was relieved. Can you imagine if after all this time, we missed it. We feel like we’ve been on the Health Care road with Barack for since he began over a year ago.
It was a late night. The TV was on until midnight when the President spoke after the vote victory. We moved to other programs: last week’s Damages, 24 and a fresh 60 Minutes, but our hearts were with the dems making history.
It’s good to wake up this morning with a win for O even though I’m watching Morning Joe continuing to bash him but there are voices on his show standing up. We needed this win.
Bravo Barack. Now let’s move to real education reform and save some teacher jobs, instead of this firing mantra. We don’t need new schools, we need improved schools.
