I've been traveling this week. I just got in. I'm very involved with a women's organization and I put my name in the hat to run for a 3rd tier spot that means I will run the entire State, all 10,000 women, in four years.

It was a tight race and I've been campaigning all over the State. That's what has been consuming any spare time I've had.

I won. I'm excited. I'm very excited. I see potential to make some good change. I see potential to bring a new energy to what works.

We'll see. I need to be what they need me to be, as well as lead them in a direction I think is great.

It's a two way street.

The next two years will be the easy years. These are the years I listen and learn.

There are those that want me to seek national levels on behalf of our state. I just want to lead and survive. It can be a brutal position, the person at the top. People will love me and people will hate me. There will be not much middle ground.

I will also spend the next three years researching scripture that best represents my thoughts. I'll be creating a logo and a slogan for my administration.

I have some thinking to do... it should be interesting.

It will not be blog fodder, however. It is a very private part of my life I don't share readily and I have a policy here that this is my happy place and I'm not mean. So even when things are going poorly, it won't come out here. It'll still be about the happy parts of my life.


The Band trip is Wednesday. I will be out of pocket Wednesday through Saturday night. I'm very stressed about it and the planning of this trip has made me nearly physically ill.

I can't put my finger on it. I think there are too many variables. I'm a bit of an on-time freak and with 100 people, it makes me nervous.

I'll be literally mentally checking off every stop as we arrive places until we're home.


I have some funny pictures about Bones that we're trying to download, but it's not going well. I'll try again tomorrow.

I'm beat.

By the way, I hit 220,000 on my car last week and txt'd the picture of the odometer to my kids.

I'm the only one that thinks its cool. Instead I got responses like, 'The new Consumer Reports about cars came out..."

Congratulations!! Hope you enjoy your tenure as leader of Florida. Must they address you with a title now, because that would be cool...

Congrats on winning the election. :)

I know what you mean about freaking out when it comes to "on time" stuff and lots of people. In the meantime, hoping the next few days pass quickly so it's done and you don't have to stress over it. I am so not an event planner.

Very cool on the car mileage. LOL.

My Pontiac is right about the 250k mark. And it's deteriorated to the point where about all it's good for is commuting and errands around town. Still it's a testament to how much more reliable domestic cars have come, twenty years ago 100k was considered a milestone not often achieved.

And the thought of planning an event coordinating the actions of 100 people makes me hyperventilate. Just sayin'.
