~*campaign season is in full swing*~

Ok, so my campaign for City Council has officially begun. Oh yeah, I am freaking! But I am excited too. If you are interested in contributing to my campaign, contact me and I will let you know what you can do. Otherwise, say a prayer for me! It is a full race this year. 14 candidates. 7 slots. Oh boy! Let the mud slinging begin.
Have a great day!

~* ahhhhhh, breathe......*~

Ok, so what's new? With me? Oh, not much. Except I got the nomination for City Council!!! Yup, I am OFFICIALLY running. And Dan and I sold our share of the restaurant. Yeah, we had to. I could not devote the kind of time needed to run a successful campaign and spend the kind of time I was at the restaurant daily. We were able to get out what we put into it, and so it was a good thing. And a learning experience for sure. If we were to go into the restaurant business again, we would know what to do, and what NOT to do. So now I am trying to catch up on things that just got so behind...my gardens are a mess...my house is a disaster... and my cupboards are bare! Plus, the exciting political campaign that I am starting on.
You just don't realize- we really spent every waking moment at the restaurant, and Dan came straight from his other job, and after we closed it was so late, we literally went straight to bed! So stay tuned for more info on the campaign! I am very excited about my new venture! I know I have shared with you all my intention to run for some time now, but it is finally a reality!
This is a hibiscus from my yard, actually my neighbor's but right on the property line and these flowers are as big as dinner plates. It is gorgeous!!! Ok, well I wanted to update you all on what has been going on with me.... I hope to have some time now to stop by all your blogs and see what is going on with you!
Have a great day!
