Sorry it's been fourteen days since I posted last. It has been a very busy two weeks for me...I am the swing of my new job and have yet to build out my team yet so I am doing the work of about four people...my campaign launches on 5/13 so we are just racing the clock at this point.
On top of that, I ended up pulling off a very successful event with the Edina Public School administration and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense. I had 10 people on the panel, the superintendent, the head of crisis management, the head of school counseling, three police officers, two firemen and two resource workers (cops that are on campus full-time). 120 moms showed up and I moderated the whole thing. It was really a ton of work and pressure- but the event was actually very enjoyable for me and I am really proud of myself for doing it. Now, do I ever want to run for public office? NO. That stuff is exhausting. I could never.
AND, then Nikki came this weekend, which was such a treat for me and the beans and Bennett. And then, I came down with strep on Sunday, so I missed work Monday and spent today, and will spend tomorrow catching up from that down time, and then we leave on Wednesday for Mexico.
People keep saying "Are you crazy? Going to Mexico right now?" Honestly- it feels a lot safer than the states right now. Which is so sad. So no I'm not crazy, yes I feel good about it, and honestly I am looking forward to six days in the sun with Bennett and the beans.
So, I will take lots of pictures and post them when I'm back. Love you all!
