I worked a long day - having some fun with my students and helping out some fellow teachers. I had dinner with my wife and two of my boys, went to a high school football game, visited my granddaughter and her parents, and spent some time catching up with a young woman who used to be our babysitter many years ago. Then, we gathered around the TV.
A typical American day and night - some time at work and then time with family and friends.
And by the way, we watched the speech.
It was classic Mitt Romney. Confident - but not showy. Direct - but not cocky. Some about success, but mostly about family.
And that is how he presented what an America under his leadership would look like. Confident - but not showy. Direct - but not cocky. Some about success, but mostly about family.
He said he wished things over the last few years had been different. But alas, they were not. He said it was time to bring something new. He said he had delivered in the past and that he could deliver again.
And then he called out Castro and Putin - by name. Confident and direct.
Well, that is all. I need some sleep. Tomorrow, I do it all over again. And so do you. Striving for success - because it's mostly about family.
