And it’s freakin awesome!
Nick crashed his 70 the first day without breaking any bones or equipment (or landscaping) so now we are just waiting for the big one’s first throw before I will sleep easy.
Alex has crashed into a shrub – but if it’s not wheels up – it doesn’t count as a huge learning experience yet.
Sure is fun though!
I could have done more to have my name out in front of people. I am okay with the freshly elected members and the members who are sitting at this time.
I trust them.
This gives me a chance this summer to reset and determine what my focus should be over the next few years. Make my lists – work the processes.
Still stings a bit – that’s just pride…
Today I will either be a Public School Board Member for Penfield or I will be back to the golf league.
Those two share the same day of the week for the majority of events – I’ll still do both, but less golf than school.
I had better get on that treadmill…
If things work out next Tuesday I might have to cave in and make my Wife happy…
Now I have three pair – maybe I have a problem…
Also – why am I asking the internet?
But seriously, they aren’t in the shoe cabinet, boots bucket, my closet, front hall closet, storage or under the back seat of my truck.
Yes – they are also not in my golf bag.
I hope they enjoy their freedom…
Now I need the dry warm winds of summer to blow the water out of my grass so I can clean up the yard!
Honestly I could do some of that now, but the physical work over the weekend was more than enough as it stood.
It’s nerve-wracking stepping before an audience and a set of cameras to answer unknown questions about a position that you have yet to obtain.
But it’s also quite a rush – especially in Penfield.
There were no loaded questions, or personal questions, or questions designed to push any one agenda. That may be in part due to the excellence of our moderator for the evening.
But some of that has to come from the community itself.
Now if I could just find a way to get more people to attend these things – physically or virtually – I could go to sleep happy…
Okay – every day is a big day, but this one is the first that will put me before a group of Penfield residents to talk about running for the board of education.
I’m a little nervous – but I’m also excited!
I have an opening statement of three minutes and a closing statement of two minutes.
I guess I have some homework tonight!
