Oh, I am SO in over my head! As a favor to a friend I agreed to coordinate a political debate. Yeah. Me.
And, uh, these are candidates for Congress. Of the United States. And they're all from a party I rarely vote for.
You may ask... well, you may ask whatever you want, but don't expect me to know the answer. I am so far outside my comfort zone I can barely wave to it. But this is how we grow, yes? This is how we learn new things. Oy.
Okay, so at least I'm not moderating the debate. (I was asked, but refused.) Someone from the League of Women Voters will wrangle the candidates. Me, I'm just the shmo who makes the intro speech and runs the stopwatch. That's not hard, right? Unless I hit the wrong button on the stopwatch.
Today I had reporters calling me. Really. Reporters?!?
But despite all that (the event is tonight at 7pm), I sat down here to write about something completely different. Something good. Something happy.
Snuggler got mail today, and she is IN to her first-choice selective middle school! Oh, we are doing the happy dance here! She was so certain she'd bombed the entrance exam... and she didn't!
Plus, Eldest completed her last exam of sophomore year today, and we'll pick her up this weekend.
Provided, of course, that I make it through tonight's debate. Which I will. Because that's what we do when faced with new and challenging things, right? We make it through.
