My big signs came in today, and the first one is up, thanks to Ginger and James. I had to go to NO to meet the Realtor to show our house tomorrow.
Last night I attended the Arnaudville Town Council meeting. As usual, it was informative and interesting. As in most towns, there is often an adversarial relationship between some of the folks and their elected officials. Then, there are the dynamics between the aldermen, the Mayor, and the town employees. Then, you gotta make room for the friction between and among the audience members themselves. Put all that together, and add an election year, and it makes for a pretty spicy gumbo! Gotta love Louisiana, and especially small towns! But, I think there is no better place to live and love.
We are working hard to get to the finish line, and I'm feeling exhilarated on one hand, and nervous on the other. I have to keep saying that the process is worth all the anxiety -- re-connecting with relatives and friends, and making new friends. At the end, we will have a celebration with supporters -- a victory party if I win, a pity party if I lose! But, either way, an honor for the experience, and gratitude for the believers.
