The results are IN!!!!



Well... the last two weeks have been nothing but pins, needles,pacing, phone calling, patience testing, lots of late nights and missed dinners.  Why? Because my hubby has been very busy and dedicated to running an election for a Business Agent in his Los Angeles Union Local 105 Sheet Metal Workers...

AND HE WON!!!!

I am sooo proud of him!  He's been in his profession for 27 years, and he's wanted to do this job, his dream job, for all 27 years... and it's finally come to pass...  Sooooo many people came out to vote and show confidence in him, and the other men running for their positions... and all the hard work he's done in the past 27 years has come to fruition... and now he gets to give back and really help and uplift all the people that have helped him over his career... what a blessing...

His territory is East Los Angeles area... so it's a little farther commute than his Irvine commute... and a little LOT more dangerous... but he can't WAIT to get out there and serve...

I feel like I've been holding my breathe for the past 5 months... when Bill decided he was going to run in this election... and yesterday... at 4 p.m. I let my breathe out...

I made over 100 sandwiches for all the campaign workers, judges, and ballot counters, anonymously of course... and was so thankful for the monotonous job so my mind could be occupied with something other than the election...

I've been really trying to keep as busy as possible, now that school is out, so last week, I took the kids up to Mountain Lakes to fish, and we were at the beach for a week before that... and now it's all about All star baseball, and high school football.

Our new backyard "resort" is fab-u-lous... and we have been taking full advantage of that too...

Whew... soooo glad the election is over... it's sooo stressful!  The really cool thing is... Bill's Uncle DAve won his re-election... so it's a double victory... he is SUCH  a hard worker and pillar of strength and knowledge in the Union... sooooo awesome he won, and can now take Bill under his wing...

So that's where my head has been the past few months... and especially the last few weeks...

I'm breathing again... in... out... in... out... in... out...

Now I'm going for a swim... Ciao!
