If you're not a facebook friend, or a neighbor here in Amman, then you won't yet know that I was elected to the school board last week. I gave that speech of mine, scary though it was, and I won a seat. Which means that for the next two years, I'll be even busier than usual.
What was I thinking? Seriously, what?
I'm busy enough, don't you think, what with the four kids and the dog and the cat and the part-time job and the addiction to home-baked cookies and the blog and don't even get me started on the Tetris app for the iPhone.
But okay, I'm in it now, and people have already been stopping me in the corridors at the Embassy to tell me what they think needs to be done over there at the school.
I wish I had some clever way to wrap up this post, but it's late and I'm tired and I still need to go online to zappos and order some new shoes because the dog just ate my very last and most comfortable pair of work-quality shoes. Which means until I get some new ones, I'll be known around here as that lady who won a spot on the school board, you know her? The one who wears clogs with her business clothes? Yeah, what's up with that?
