Two and a half years ago I also had a dream that my blog was only read by my 4 sisters-in-law... which is why I won't link up the original post which has NO redeeming humor. (and now the pressure is on to make this an informative yet amusing post... hmmm)
Anywho (hmmm, after yesterday's rant I probably shouldn't use that non-word anymore... who am I kidding - I'm a hypocrite of the worst kind!)
Anywho - yesterday my little steering committee had an appointment to present to the city council once again... about a different building this time and it seems that FINALLY we have reached that "next step" in the process where we can begin moving forward. Now... the fact that my own kids will have probably completely outgrown their desire to spend hours at the children's museum by the time it comes to fruition is beside the point... after all most of the other folks on the committee are grandparents.
Seriously - I sit on a committee with people who are about 10-45 years older than myself. Through this experience I have learned something very important.
Respect your elders.
Okay, so maybe the once I was a little irate... but overall it's been a good experience.
I would link you up to the "City Council OKs children's museum" headline... but for some reason my local paper thinks that particular article is so special you should have to subscribe to read it online. The gist? My fellow committee member rocked the presentation - the city council loves us - and the wheels of government will begin turning ever so slowly to provide us with the go-ahead for the next step...
Let's just hope and pray that this time the steps aren't iced over!
