I'm engaged!

Well, Aaron finally proposed to me. To be honest, I wasn't expecting him to ever propose to me. Especially after losing the baby.
I'm really excited though!

I was lounging in the recliner looking like crap because I just got home from surgery. He started being all lovey dovey to me which is weird. Then he got down on one knee and proposed to me! I don't wear much jewelry so Aaron had no idea what kind of taste I had, so instead of putting a ring on my finger, he slipped his credit card in my hand and told me to buy any ring I wanted. I about died!

Now, me, who is always looking for a bargain coz I'm a cheap ass, found an awesome deal on the ring I chose. It's being resized for me at the moment. I can't wait to get it!!

Sarah Palin links! =]

I prepared a short list of my favorite Sarah Palin links of late. Enjoy!

***Note*** Author cannot be held responsible for migraines, explosive vomiting, rashes, or nightmares resulting from use of this post.

Where does Palin stand on the big issues? Here's a breakdown.

Charlie Gibson interviews Palin about the Bush Doctrine; Palin clearly has no clue what what he's talking about.

Despite calling herself a feminist, Palin unapologetically opposes abortion, even in cases of rape and incest. Someone brilliantly hatches the idea to make donations to Planned Parenthood in Palin's name. The campaign generates nearly $800,000 in contributions.

Like conspiracy theories? Here's an intriguing one about a possible coverup re: Palin and daughter Bristol's pregnancy.

Palin majored in journalism. However, when asked what newspapers she regularly read before McCain tapped her, she fails to name even one.

Matt Damon suggests that Palin as president would be like a bad Disney movie. Specifically, like THIS bad Disney movie.

We already know that Palin wants to overturn Roe v. Wade; Katie Couric wants to know, what other Supreme Court decisions does she want reversed? Sarah assures her there are plenty, but cannot name a single one.

When asked for examples of her running mate's deregulation record, Palin cannot cite one, and promises to "get back to" Couric on it.

When pressed about her claim that living next to Russia gives her foreign policy experience, Palin gives new and frightening meaning to the word "choke". Incidentally, THIS is another fun way to enjoy that particular sound byte.

Just for fun: Does Palin have tattooed lip liner?

Tina Fey's SNL Palin impression; and here's the other one.

Evangelicals pray over Palin, to fortify her against witches!

All kidding aside, this woman is dangerously close to ending up in the White House. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR VOTER REGISTRATION INFO IS CURRENT...AND VOTE!

Keira's Obituary

Donna is doing much better since the car accident on Sept. 20th. Below is the obituary for the baby she lost in the accident. You can find it below at the Frontiersman.

Frontiersman newspaper article

Published on Saturday, October 4, 2008 8:48 PM AKDT

Keira Marie Campbell-Gallant, just 3 weeks from birth, died Sept. 20, 2008 as a result of a vehicle accident on the Parks Highway at Spring Street in Meadow Lakes.
Funeral Services were held Sept. 30 at the Wasilla Chapel of Valley Funeral Home & Crematory. The pastors of the First Baptist Church of Palmer officiated.

“Keira, you were loved so much before you had even come into this world,” her family wrote. “Daddy and you had our games already and your mommy couldn’t wait to see you and hold you. Our whole family was so excited for your arrival, but now you are with our Lord watching over us. Now all I need from you is for you to be your mommy’s guardian angel. We all love you and will see you again soon.”

She is is survived by her parents Donna Gallant and Jason Campbell of Wasilla; maternal grandparents Dianne and Tim Abell of Big Lake and John Gallant of Texas; paternal grandmother Barbara Hatch of Ogden, Utah; great-grandparents Betty and Bill Martin of Lowell, Mass., Jeanne Jones of Ogden and John Jones of Benton, Ark.; aunt Michelle Gallant of Big Lake; uncle Bryce Jones of Wasilla; and sisters Lexie Bogner of Big Lake and Reagan Delaney of Wasilla.

Memorial contributions may be made to the trust fund in her name at the Mat-Su Federal Credit Union, account No. 125504.
Valley Funeral Homes & Crematory of Palmer and Wasilla is assisting the family.

Because I live in Alaska, I have to be for something I don't believe?

I just want to make this clear...I am not for, nor do I support, Sarah Palin.
Just because I live in Alaska, doesn't mean I have to be for someone that doesn't have any right to be where she's at.

I think it's great that Sarah Palin wants to further her career and take it somewhere higher than a state that a lot of people don't know about, (Yes it's true, I don't live in an igloo and I don't hunt whale for it's blubber.) but I believe she should do it the right way -- By working her way up to the top. Educate yourself over years of experience and try picking up a USA Today, New York Times, or read an effing military newspaper! Anchorage Daily News isn't going to cut it when you want to learn about foreign affairs. I read the paper everyday, and there's only 10 line blurbs about anything in the Middle East.

Nor do I believe that I should be for her because she's a woman. Does McCain seriously think that getting a pretty woman will win votes? Sorry, but everyone is ready for a change and everyone is actually educating themselves about this next election. It's too crucial in our country not to. Call me a sheep, but it's better than being a Lemming.

I will be the first to admit that I don't know shit about politics. But I do know how to listen and read. And I know a bullshitter when I hear one. It's funny how you ask a direct question to either McCain or Palin, and they give you this caca vague answer. I want to know more details people! Americans deserve the right to know your real intentions!!

For those of you that have called me a sheep, I have one word for you.....

Sarah Palin - Say it ain't so, Joe!

With a wink of an eye and a “You betcha,” Alaska’s governor Sarah Palin proved exactly why she isn’t fit to be vice president of this country. Throughout the entire vice presidential debate with Senator Joe Biden, Palin’s “Look cute-evade questions-and when in doubt call John a Maverick” plan just screamed inexperience. To me it is evident that the Grand Old Party’s vice presidential candidate was chosen as a gimmick, a ploy, a plot to trick America’s people who are looking for someone to relate to. Here is this lip stick wearing hockey mom of five from “real world” Wasilla, Alaska, and to some you’d think it was the second coming of FDR- a president who actually did this country SOME good. I on the other hand, have NOT had the wool pulled over my eyes.

Her “abstinence only” sex education plan is about as hypocritical as a war protestor joining the Army. How does anyone expect this woman to inspire a nation when she couldn’t even inspire her own daughter to abstain from sex? When it comes to our youth and sex, I think we need to have the “hope for the best, prepare for the worst” kind of attitude- hope these teens won’t go out and have sex, but prepare like everyone IS going to. We would be too na├»ve to think that by completely avoiding any discussion about the sex, birth control and any other contraceptives we can prevent our children from having sex.

Then there is her knowledge on foreign affairs, more specifically Russia. Congratulations, Sarah, you can see Russia from Alaska- and I can see Canada from Montana, am I now qualified in foreign affairs? Palin also claimed to have numerous contacts with foreign officials- including Britain's ambassador to Washington, Sir Nigel Sheinwald. However, that meeting never happened.

When pressed by Katie Couric in a televised interview, Palin was asked about MCain reversing his prior position against regulation of the financial markets and how he then suddenly began supporting greater federal regulation of Wall Street. Palin insisted that MCain had supported regulation, then deflected the question by repeating her line about McCain being a maverick and "taking shots" from his own party. Like I said, when I doubt, call John a maverick. Couric asked again for examples of McCain supporting more regulation rather than the abolishing regulations. Palin finally admitted she did not know of any examples, saying, "I'll try to find ya some, and I'll bring 'em to ya." You know what, Sarah? I would really like a vice president who doesn’t talk like a freshman student.

How is it that there are still people in this country that think this woman could potentially be our president (because whether you like it or not, McCain IS old and COULD die while in office)? Now I know that she isn’t running for president. I also know that it is McCain and Obama we are supposed to be focusing on, but quite frankly, the idea of this woman being anywhere near the White House scares the crap out of me.

My biggest issues with this whole “Palinmania” are those who say Sarah Palin is for women. ANY woman who makes rape victims pay for their own rape kits IS NOT FOR WOMEN’S RIGHTS! Any woman who wants to overturn Roe v. Wade, even in the cases of rape and incest IS NOT FOR WOMEN’S RIGHTS!

We MUST, for the sake of this country, our future and our children make sure THIS woman is not voted into office. She would be a true hindrance to the change this country needs. She would be, without a doubt, a slap in the face to what Susan B. Anthony, Jeanette Rankin and others who came before worked so hard to gain.

It's officially winter

Today marks the first day of winter. It snowed today. I'm not looking forward to it at all! We haven't had much of a summer, which means a HORRIBLE winter. Gah! The ground is still too warm for it to stick, but it's almost that time. The mountains are about 75% covered which means not much more time before the snow will stick. *Sigh* I need to find a new car fast and sell my other one.

I found an awesome glider chair I wanna get at Baby Depot in Burlingtons. I almost fell asleep. I think I might buy it this weekend. I need Aaron to move it LoL.

We lost all the leaves on the trees =[

Kind of blurry, but the mountains are in the background full of snow.

The saying is correct...."3rd time's a charm!"

Like I stated yesterday, I won $100 on a ticket raffle at Bingo. Well, I decided that I wanted to go again today, and I WON $1,000! I was so excited when the caller called B15. And I didn't have to split the pot with 13 others like last time!


Aaron and I played Bingo today and I won $100 at the raffle. This is the second time in a row that I've won at Bingo. I almost want to go tomorrow coz of the saying "3rd time's a charm". We'll see.
