Terrific Tuesday--Nice Day, Good News, Off Work!

Yesterday was a very good day for us. First off, we both decided to take off the whole day from work since the forecast was good and it was voting day.

We slept in, then went out for a buffet breakfast at Eat-n-Park which was very good. The good news in the Cleveland PLAIN DEALER this morning said that Brady Quinn will be the starting Quarterback for the Browns this Thursday night--yippee! I think it's time. Then we went to PetSmart form more Temptations treats, kitty litter & cat food and GNC for a new supply of Amplify (our protein drink).

We walked up to our voting place at 11:00 and although it was crowded, no one was in line for our ward so we were in and out in just 10 minutes. We think we made a wise decision taking the day off so we didn't have to rush before or after work when it would be more crowded. I was surprised when I looked at the ballot to see so many names running for President! All I ever heard anything about was McCain and Obama. I think this is just plain WRONG! I wish every candidate would get the same amount of money to spend on their campaign and not have to rely on using their own money or contributions from businesses, organizations or individuals. I had no idea all these other people were running. Why was this kept from me? I feel cheated and manipulated!

Anyhow, the sun was shining and the temperature was warm so we headed off to the zoo next. Much of it was blocked off already for the winter but we still enjoyed it. The Red Panda was just so cute. One was curled up with it's head tucked into it's fur and a paw over his eye while the other little one was walking back and forth on a log in the opposite corner. After blogging a bit, we went up to Dunkin Donuts where we each got a free donut for voting today.
