Let's Get to Work

Monday, December 31, 2012

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!!!

    One of my SparkFriends, MNNICE, gave me a great quote. Something like "The essence of wisdom is knowing what to ignore" or something. Like housework, when you're going to the White House!

    Holy cow what an honour! We in Canada love Pres Obama and his family! Good for you for being active in the community! One week out of your life isn't going to throw you off track. Jump up and start with drinking the water you need and it will go from there

    Happy New Year
