I think I had to much wine tonight.
Let me rephrase – I had the right amount of wine, I just had it in the wrong order with the food.
So instead of a gentle warmth, I’m feeling a bit tipsy. (And I have some VICIOUS hiccups. I need a quality “BOO” here, people.)
I’m feeling a bit worn down, though. I’ve been MIA as a function of some political activism *GASP* that I’ve been doing.
I gasp because, frankly, I avoid politics like the plague. Politicians are rarely working for me. I don’t agree with most of their ideas, I’m so tired of the whining, fussing and carrying on. I’m a mom. I get to hear that crap every day, and when I do, at least it’s from a 7 year old, instead of a 47 year old.
But I’m being active. Our state has royally screwed up how they fund the schools. They took a broken process, broke it a little bit more, and now our schools are paying the price. So, I’m canvassing. I’m calling. I’m advocating a tax increase (more *GASP*) to fund a broken process.
I’m trying to help put an adhesive bandage on a wound, with the goal of some follow-up treatment with administration. There are certainly areas where our school corporation could reduce costs, and I hope to help uncover those. I want to help reduce costs, improve efficiency, make the school system better, over the next 6 years.
In the meantime, I’m working to make sure we have solid operating capital to get us through while we fix the issues.
But not tonight.
Tonight, I’m drinking another glass of wine.
