The Obama family does this!

Did you know this??? I didn't until I heard it on MSNBC today.

Sasha thinks Daddy has a job that is full of thorns. She just may be right!

So, My roses and thorns


Thorns:
the economy stinks.
Dave is taking a week each month on layoff.
Unemployment is not nearly what he made at work.
A plane crashed in Amsterdam today.
My uncle died of brain/lung cancer on Saturday.

Roses:
Most of the passengers on that plane survived.
I raise rabbits. The bunnies born three weeks ago from the two New Zealands are full of sass and cuteness.
My son is happy with his girlfriend.
I have found several people from school online and have been in touch.
Got a raise this month. Nick and I both did.
Tho Dave is on layoff one week a month, at least he is getting unemployment for it!
My uncle is no longer suffering in pain.
My son is so CUTE!
