I heard today that Dora the Explorer has grown up and changed her image. Some mothers seem to be very upset about this. After reading a little about it I'm kind of glad. Robyn was a baby when Dora came out. She loved that show and from time to time I catch her watching it. Garrett always teases her for watching such a "baby" show. I'm glad that Dora will be growing along with Robyn.
Dora will be focusing on "pro-social themes -- like volunteerism, water conservation, or planting trees to help the environment." This is exactly the type of stuff that interests my 9 year old and I'm thrilled that Dora is not as trashy as the Bratz dolls that are banned from our home.

I'll be doing some research on superfoods and energy and hope to be back tomorrow with something insightful. :)

"As lawmakers make a big show of forcing auto executives to accept just $1 a year in salary, they are quietly raiding the vault for their own personal gain," the group's chairman, Daniel O'Connell, said in a written statement. "This money would be much better spent helping the millions of seniors who are living below the poverty line and struggling to keep their heat on this winter."
Here's the link for the full story.

I'm going to be positive and believe that it actually feels like a sunny day to me, and for a few reasons. The temperature is much warmer, I had a great opportunity to take my daughter to a Mother/Daughter Luncheon and I have peeled myself away from work and Fox News.
I have been letting my addiction to news get the best of me and boy is it depressing lately. After listening to nonstop news from Monday through Friday I feel like I've been slapped in the face all week. The media is telling us that there isn't much hope left for the country and all the hard working Americans are supporting people like Octomom.
Below is a list I compiled of words I could go without ever hearing again. I'm going to point them out, put them in a box, stomp on it, burn it and move on with a more positive outlook.
4. Main Street
5. Wall Street
6. Joy Behar
12. Great Depression
13. Spending Bill
14. Stimulus Bill
19. Nancy Pelosi
20. Barney Frank
Let me know if you have more words for me :)

What Your Nose Says About You
You are objective and logical. You make a good businessperson.
You are helpful and giving. You like cooperating, and you're always willing to lend a hand.
You are optimistic and trusting. You expect the best from people.

Here is a video of the dance portion of Robyn's Cheer Off. As someone that is new the cheerleading scene this was quite an experience. I was completely unprepared. The other parents were wearing team colored wigs and clothes and came with posters, horns and cowbells. Me, I just had my voice and no longer have it :) There were even cars in the parking lot with paint for the cheer off on the windows.
Every event I have attended in this city blows me away. They treat football and cheerleading like they are in the pros. There is a lot of spirit and energy in this city and its really fun to watch. Next year I'll know what to expect and be prepared.
