Looking at the world through rose-colored glasses...

My computer screen is pink. There is something wrong with our poor little Mac. It is older than any of our children and has performed well, so I suppose we cannot complain too much. For the record, looking at the world through a rose-colored computer screen...not all it's cracked up to be. I can't see links if they are merely of a different hue instead of underlined - that's kind of frustrating. There are all sorts of other issues. Strangely enough, red looks like it might be blue in my pink computer screen. There's my latest excuse for being absent from the blogosphere. My own pictures look weird, so I don't feel a strong inclination to post them. Who knows if they have red eye or not???

That said, we went TOTALLY red yesterday (everyone in the family in red coats) to attend the Palin rally. It was within walking distance from our house, and we were politically motivated enough to brave a little wind to see Sarah herself. It was great fun! Spencer and his buddy "the other Spencer" from our ward hung out in the double stroller, pausing from their play to shout "U-S-A" and wave their red pom-poms. Emma loved the music and was rocking out. I thought it was pretty funny to hear Dolly Parton's "9 to 5" as Palin's theme song when she came onstage. Adam found lots of people with which to engage in politically charged conversation. We all had a good time.

A few photos from our going RED.
