I was invited to the White House today. I am a HUGE supporter of President Barack Obama and Michelle, the political process (for better or for worst) and I truly believe that we can learn from each other even if I don't initially support your position.
I have been active in the Student Gov't since elementary school. I was chosen to participate in the HOBY Foundation in JHS and lost my first race for office in 9th grade. It was a devastating blow. When people ask me what in the world excites you about politics, I respond- we have an opportunity to make a difference, help our neighbors, and on a good day - raise some H!@#$%LL! What's not to love?
I have really fallen off my food tracking and Sparking this week. I remain committed but without regular access to a computer-I suck. Normally, I would quit and move onto the next thing but, that's not happening. I am trying to figure how I can get my Spark on, checking in with my buddies (we worry when ya'll drop off) and trying to keep my house in some semblance of order. I have learned to let some things go-- my house is a mess but-- I am surrounded by family. I have a plan to get stronger and better and I am so very blessed to have re-connected with SparkPeople, The Peppy Party (it's leaders Lilac Lane & Reffie and my Suzymobile.) I am ready to get back in the groove tomorrow and wish each of you the success and rewards for your commitments!!!
