On Tuesday night, I swore in as Councilwoman. I was completely nervous.
And immediately following, I attended my first town council meeting. (I was completely lost. Do I look it?)
This week is the local fireman's carnival. And last night was the parade. I rode in the back of the truck and threw candy. This is the corner where my family was sitting. They got extra candy. (My parents, sister and her children, brother and his family, and a good friend and her family were there with Joe and the kids.)
To my surprise, there were lots of town members who gave me the "thumbs up" sign when we drove by. One man (whom I don't know), called me by name and gave me thumbs up. It was pretty cool. The town is very supportive and it makes me love it even more than I already do.
