Election time in Ontario!

Election time soon!

I'm a Conservative. I don't think the Liberal party, provincially or federally is any good - at least they haven't been for the last dozen years or so. After that whole sponsorship scandal with the Fiberals - I mean, the Liberals, I pretty much decided A LOT would need to change within their party before they regained my trust and my vote. And seriously? Stephane Dion?

I like Stephen Harper. I don't know why so many people harp (haha) on him. He doesn't bug me. Yeah, okay, he is not the most personable politician out there, but he is far from the worse we've had.

Provincially - where did Mike Harris go? Did he kick ass or what? He was great. He came in, boom, had a great platform - common sense revolution - and made things happen! He did! He changed things. Of course there was a lot of complaining with his platform, but hello? If I have to work for my money, so should you! He decided people on welfare should work for their money - workfare, was it called? I can't remember and I'm too lazy to double check. Anyway, kudos to that great guy. He just made sense. It wasn't all 'ladida, we live in the best province ever, we should all be the same, public school for everyone, same health care for everyone, we are all one, let's all be robots ladida...' Yeah, of course, free health care for everyone - but there is nothing, I repeat - nothing - wrong with private health care if it is done right. By that I mean - if I want to go for an MRI in my province, I should darn well be able to if I am willing to pay for it! (Thus also reducing the line up in the purblic hospitals, since I won't be on that list of6 million names who are still waiting for an MRI!)

And what the heck is wrong with the Catholic School board? I am sick of everyone in this city and province hating religion! Seriously... I know a lot of people are athiests or whatever, but seriously, enough with your complaining. If you like the public school system, put your kids in it. There ya go! I went to private and then to public school, had a great time in both, yada, yada, yada. We are considering putting our children in the Catholic school board because there are some great schools and why the hell not?! (We aren't Catholic, by the way, we're Greek Orthodox... so I don't even know if we'd be allowed... but we have a couple years left before we have to figure that out!) These are just my opinions, folks. I don't mean to offend. Everyone will vote which ever way they want.

Oh yeah and wasn't Dalton the one who got rid of free eye care for the residents of Ontario? Yeah, thanks for that, Dalton! Let's not even get started on tax...

Let's just say I'm glad my son's favourite colour is blue! ;)

More Monday randomness...

It's Monday again! Damn... I hate Mondays! I miss my baby boy a whole lot on Mondays. Luckily, I am off tomorrow - yay! I'll be taking two days off a week for 5 weeks in a row while my in-laws are in Greece, so I can take care of my son. (My mother-in-law and mommy babysit my son, so I'll be taking over the two days my mother-in-law normally babysits).

Summer is... over! We had a great summer. From Christos's first vacation and airplane ride to Florida, and experiencing the ocean for the first time... to lazy afternoons spent in the in-law's pool... to nights at the neighbourhood park and long walks... I'm going to miss it! He also loved the ex (like a huge carnival here in Ottawa), and the Gatineau hot air balloon festival... we went on a few rides... and had a blast! But fall... is slowly becoming my favourite season. Must be because I am pregnant because I am did not handle the heat as well as I used to!

Christos is just growing and growing and I am so amazed by him, truly, everyday. He knows so many letters now... already! He has loved reading (or, I should say, he's had a huge interest in) books since he was 3 months old... and now he knows a lot of letters. He'll yell them out as we're driving past a store, and in his books. Very cute! Oh, and he also loves playing wii with his daddy. Like father, like son! Lucky fo my boy, and boy to be, they'll have the newest game gear the day they come out. My husband loves loves loves the wii and games so yeah... lucky for my boys!

Christos started playgroup last week, and he'll be in playgroup 3 mornings a week, with my mom, who stays with him - I'm not into leaving him alone until he can speak to me in full sentences so I know really how his day was.

I'm getting sick of mat clothes! I'm getting sick of pants that slide down... what on earth can I do to stop this from happening? I keep having to pull up my pants throughout the day and it is totally frustrating!

In other news... just celebrated my 31st (gulp!) birthday... I am feeling a bit old, but then look around and see that I am the MOTHER of a two year old baby boy, and pregnant with another boy... so life is as good as it gets, truly. And 31 is just like 21, only better. ;)

Thoughts on the MTV VMA's? My thoughts:

1. Britney's body looked great! Can I look like that after I have my second child, please? Way to go in that regard, Britney. But... can't you hire a stylists? With the amount of money you have, your extensions should NOT look that terrible. What was with your hair? And... how come you weren't dancing? And why can't you even lip sync properly? What was going on? Were you high? Sad. Snap out of it, girl! This was no comeback. I'm still in your corner, but come on...

2. Alicia Keys was awesome! She is what it is all about.. talent!

3. 50 Cent all the way. I'm getting tired of Kanye complaining all the time when he doesn't win.

4. Dr. Dre was way cool. Wow, he's been working out! He is the greatest legend.

5. Timbaland is also awesome. Nelly Fertado, Justin T., and Timbaland did it up great last night!

6. Sarah Silverman... made me laugh.

7. But overall... the show could have been better...
