July 4th Conversation

As I was posting the above pic as my FB cover photo for July 4th, I expressed that I feel sad. Elijah, my 16, asked why to which I replied, “America is screwed.” His answer? “It’s your fault.” “Why?” I asked.

“Because you didn’t run for President.”

I volleyed with, “The scary thing is, I could run and I COULD get elected. I could run on ‘I don’t know what the heck I’m doing but it will be better than the future we’re looking at.”

Elijah’s suggested platform: “I’ve got this here Presidency for Dummies book. We’ll all be fine.”

There you have it, folks. I’m announcing my candidacy. Just write me in. I’m running not as an Independent but as an idiot because I don’t want anyone to be under the impression that I have any experience other than, if you consider having 12 kids a community, I am, in fact, a “community organizer.”

Happy 4th of July!

What’s not shared is lost…and I didn’t want to lose this conversation because it made me laugh…..

About zookeeper12

I am the very blessed mother of 12 and wife to Craig. We are God's favorites. Oops. I think that might have been a secret. We have been homeschooling since 1992 and recently received new curriculum in the form of a catering business started in November of 2010. Our newest season of adventure comes with 2 grandbabies and I'm sure God has more in store for us! Oh, and we're all pretty goofy. This blog is pretty random - everything from recipes and organization to spiritual issues and child raising.I might go on an occasional political rant but so many are already doing that, I will try to restrain myself and save it for the "pros." This is also a journal of our adventures as a family. So many folks have asked me to write a book - this is the best I can do and there are enough books on big, homeschooling families. I'm too random for a book anyway. What's not shared is lost. That's why I'm here.

  1. My platform would include term limits, no new spending without spending reductions elsewhere, and a new holiday – Curmudgeon Day.

    Happy 4th!
