The crazy week began with that awesome NHS football game Friday. I had the pleasure of being by three cheerleaders (mamas) and one additional substitute mama for the kiddos with a hand-held cowbell, a big one too! It’s all good. I love when the crowd gets into the game and shows spirit for the players, band, drill team and cheerleaders.

I’m absolutely not above gloating about all this and you all know what I’m talking about. I consider myself covered under “the Pursuit of Happiness” clause in our Declaration of Independence. It’s just not where I am right now. Sure, a great exhale while still reserving some breath for the next couple months during which time we’ll still have a narcissistic tyrant in the White House, who (from a snowflake point of view) has been, and still is, humiliating himself in front of the entire world.

What is it Veterans Day and why is it not as recognized as some of the other National holidays?  Schools don’t close for this one, but most schools do put on programs recognizing veterans, which is commendable. 

Once upon a time, a very, very long time ago, a little pig-tailed girl walked into a schoolhouse and right away she knew what she wanted to be when she grew up. If you’re thinking that little girl was me, you’re right. If you’re thinking she wanted to be a journalist when she grew up, you’re only half right - the journalist dream came later during high school. Don’t ask me why, but I wanted to be an election poll worker when I grew up!
