City Council & More

I plan on running. If you know me, you’re probably aware of this fact. I find it odd that everyone keeps warning me about all the traffic tickets and other harassment I am likely to receive once the “people in charge” find out that I’m running. While I’m not blatantly advertising yet, I’m not keeping it a deep, dark secret either.

I do really wonder how “they” will accomplish this harassment, but I do not doubt that it’s possible. There are any number of things that can happen and would not look really suspicious. I will say that I’m getting nervous about running. I don’t believe that a person not “in” will make it, but I want to do good for the community and will try my best.

Erich has matured so much in the past year or two. He still has typical kid moments where he acts out tantrums, but not nearly as bad. Also, he will sit down and listen to reason most of the time. He seems to be interested in baseball a bit. He wants to play catch all the time, even in the house. I try to get outside with him at least a couple of times a week to just play catch in the yard. To be honest, I think I enjoy it as much or more than he does. I still need to get a new glove though.

Amaya is still a ding-bat. She is very creative, and is constantly playing with her toys, but just comes off as out there sometimes. As a parent, I look at her and know she is really intelligent, but she comes off so airy. We just got her ears pierced last Friday. Tuesday this week she lost one, but dad made an emergency trip to the evil Wal-Mart and mom got them put in so that we don’t have to get her ears re-pierced. She’s so proud of them and has to show everyone.
