The Only Reason I Would Want My Husband To Be President
Yesterday while I was waiting for Tyler to get out of his testing appointment I picked up the most recent People magazine and read an interview with Laura Bush.

I really like Laura Bush. She always seemed very down to earth and someone I would enjoy chatting with over a warm cup of coffee.

Anyway, at one point in the article she talks about how the press has "gotten" her wrong and has liked to portray her as a cookie baking house wife. She goes on to talk about the work she has done on behalf of women's rights all over the world.

Here, however, is the sentence that really got me.

She says that not only does she not bake cookies but that she hasn't cooked a meal in 14 years.

14 Years people?!!!

Oh how heavenly.

I actually like to cook but wouldn't it be wonderful to have the choice.

Or just have someone there to clean up after you had messed up the kitchen cooking?

I just can't imagine.

14 years.


Here is how I split myself into three people yesterday.

1. Garrett ended up spending the night with friends and they took him and his friend to the clinic. Thanks so much Jim and Kathy, you are awesome!!!

2. Zach drove himself to his clinic. I really didn't want him to do this as he has only had his license for 3 months and only driven on the crazy California freeways a couple of times. He did fine. I of course had to lecture him on everything I thought he needed to know about safely driving on the freeway. He, of course, just rolled his eyes at me. He was fine.

3. I took Tyler to his testing and slept in the car for an hour and then read the aforementioned people magazine until he was done.

Thanks for your suggestions on my predicament. Some of them really cracked me up and just made my day.

I never thought about not cooking being part of being a wife of a political figure.

I can't even imagine that!

Fourteen years???? Oh, I guess b/c of the governor thing before the presidency? Wow.

Having a personal chef would be fairly awesome!

Laura Bush is so sweet, and a really neat lady. I don't know her that well, but I live in Texas, so have known them for MANY years. He was our Gov for at least 4 years. I can't remember exactly how long. And guess where they are flying to when they leave the White House on Jan. 20th? We have some good friends who are good friends of theirs, and I may see if I can tag along.

When Bush went into office in Jan. 2001, he came here on his way to DC. So, I guess they figure it should be the first place he comes to once he's out of office.

He'll be here in time to interrupt 5:00 traffic.

I really admire Laura Bush too! She basically had to sacrifice her time with her husband through this presidency. They did an amazing job and I love them for it.

Wow is right. I would love to not have to think about, plan, or cook...ever...unless I wanted to...for fun...which might be, uh, NEVER!

Great job figuring out your dilemma Wonder Mom, or Super Mom. Both names suit you fine.
