October is a New Day

I am happy that it is October. Cooler nights, darker earlier and dark mornings. Emily will sleep later. This girl loves life. She wakes singing. When I go in to get her she says "good norming, it's a new perfect day". I could learn a lot from this child. What a great outlook to have. She always follow with "daddy not go work today-daddy stay home with mimi and mommy". I hate breaking her heart-sorry honey daddy will be home after. Her response "pretty soon daddy come home". She always puts a positive spin on things.
Two things are weighing heavy on my mind. I get all worked up watching CNN. I need Obama to win. I think he will. I just get scared seeing all the crazies saying crap. McCain is McCrazy in my book. And Sarah Palin. Well I'll just leave it at that. I cannot wait for elections to be over. I heart Obama. I've already taught Emily. Emily? Who are you gonna vote for? She shouts "OBAMA" with a little fist in the air. VOTE.
Now the second thing. The Tree Man. Coming on TV on Sunday on TLC at 7 central. I cannot wait to see this. Even if it was up against Obama singing "You're The One That I Want" to me from the Convention Center. I would have to blow him off. I am fascinated by the Tree Man. I can't wait to watch it. I can't get those pictures of his hands out of my mind. American doctors are helping him. I can't imagine what they will do. He has like wooden, rooty looking hands and woody growths on him. Not small woody hands. More like tree stumps. It's unbelievable. I keep going over it again and again in my mind. Suppose the fix is quite simple. Suppose it's like a little weed killer or something? I can't wait. I need help.
Well, thanks for listening. Enjoy the pictures and each other. Happy Fall. I miss you mom.

Good Norming to all of the Reeds! You are truly right, that little girl seems to love life. I'm going to try that starting tomorrow morning -- when I wake up I'm going to tell myself "it's a new perfect day"! Maybe it will have some bearing on my general outlook -- I'll let you know! Emily is so beautiful and growing so fast. I thought at first you had cut her hair, but it must be pulled back in some shots. I can't wait to see her again in person (and of course you and Bill). Too bad "daddy has to wok" -- maybe one of Emily's fans will offer her a modeling job and daddy can retire! I love the fall as well. It's my favorite season; nice sleeping weather (and I do love to sleep), the leaves on the ground, the colors. So, President "ObamaRama" huh? I guess ... when you consider your options. You're right about Sarah Palin though. Cripes, the Palins make our family look normal! The Tree Man? I never heard of him and I'm usually right up to date with obscure things like that -- I must have missed and issue of "People". Sounds interesting though -- I will have to try and remember to watch it (if it will be shown out here). Well enough posting tonight -- time to go watch the Red Sox who are currently down 2 games to 1. They sure haven't looked good the last 2games. I hope they got a good pep talk last night and are ready to play ball tonight. Thank you for the wonderful postings -- I really do love reading them and seeing the photos. Really, your commentaries are so good! Love, The Mellos xoxo

I can't watch the news or listen to anything about either candidate -- I am so twisted up inside about it all!
