~*catching my breath*~

Oh I have been so busy I hardly know where to begin. First, I was finally able to get our neighborhood watch going at our end of the street (we have one at the other end- 4 streets down, but not including our end) and I am the chair. We are planning a street festival as a fundraiser for the K9s and that has been taking up a lot of time. I have been getting ready on Beautification Committee to start planting for the year, and if you recall my site in the city is City Hall...well they are re-doing the back of it with a new walkway, new bike stand, with stamped concrete, etc. It's all very exciting and I have been meeting with the contractors deciding on pattern and color and style, etc. I can hardly wait for them to get started so I can see how great it is going to look! I have also agreed to be nominated as secretary in the Neighborhood Alliance. It is the umbrella organization that all the neighborhood groups fall under. And I have still been working on preparing for my City Council run this year. I have met with some union officials and have several unions who are willing to endorse my campaign. Whew....I am tired already just listing this all. But I miss stopping by and reading all your blogs. I don't know when I will have the time to stop by again...but I certainly hope it will be soon. I hope all my blog friends are well and enjoying spring. We have a beautiful day here in Connecticut today. And we are supposed to have another one tomorrow. Right now I am enjoying watching the Red Sox beat the Yankees! This picture is from Easter, I can hardly believe how big my kids are...they tower over both of us! How did that happen? Well, there is laundry to fold and dinner dishes to put in the dishwasher.
Have a great day!

Holy cow, but you are a busy gal! I hope your community appreciates you. If we were all givers like you there would be no takes, and wouldn't that be a lovely world to live in! Blessings,

Hi Marie,
Wow! You have been busy! I enjoyed reading all about the wonderful things you've been up to...makes me wish I still lived in CT.

Hope you enjoy a fabulous summertime!

Hi Marie
Miss your postings. If you are getting involved in local politics you are going to be one busy woman. I was involved for several years and while it was very rewarding I am also glad that at this point I am no longer involved. It was quite a balancing act. I am so grateful I had an understanding husband.
I made the refrigerator pickles the other day and thought of you. Good luck to you and hope you post soon.
