This pretty much says it for me.
Jim's surgery is Friday morning. We have to be at the hospital at 5:30 am and the surgery begins at 7:30 am. Today Jim went to GW for blood work, paper work and a couple of other check troughs. Tomorrow he has other things to do to prepare himself for the surgery.
It's all becoming very real.
I am pasting the messages and prayers yal have sent into an album for Jim. They are a wonderful antidote to this other stuff.
An Unexpected Sighting: An elderly woman wearing a heavy jacket and woolen cap standing close to the traffic on the curb on Connecticut Avenue. Hunched over in the cold she holds a black and white lettered up for the for commuters to see - PET SHOP IS OPEN. My guess is she already has a bead on the sinking economy.
Irked - Is anybody else irked over the way Press Secretary Robert Gibbs uses the almighty I when giving briefings. I wish someone would remindl him that the people elected Barack Obama and want to hear what the President thinks about things. Today at tne mid-day press conference a reporter asked three times what President Obama thought about something after the speech last night and instead of an answering that question Gibbs talked about his own reactions. Who cares? And, that wasn't the question. Is this ego or inexperience?
