This is going to be really short because I have to get ready to go to New York tomorrow. It’s the first time Leo and I have left the kids since we have had Gia and I am a little nervous and I want the house to be super-organized so my dad doesn’t have to look for anything and if he does, it will be obvious where it is. Nothing short of a miracle but I am almost done.
Why is this 100% suburban wanna-be country girl going to New York City, you ask? Two days after Christmas, while driving home from Nico’s basketball game, I got an email from someone from the NFL. She read my posts about our experience with football and invited me to go to a Safety Commission luncheon. I would listen to a few speakers talk about measures taken to make football a safer sport and then give my opinions or thoughts. I’ll discuss the whole story when I get back but long story short, there was no way I was going to be able to go alone to NYC…I get nervous driving in downtown Wheaton or downtown Naperville and have never been to Chicago by myself. Since Leo is a coach, they want to hear his opinions as well so they are paying for both of us to go!
I write a blog about being one carpool away from a padded cell and now I am off to NYC. Who would have thought? As a proud football mom and a fantasy football widow, anything with the NFL is exciting so wish me luck. I’ll report as soon as I get back.
If you could spare a prayer that the chaos stays away so that my dad doesn’t have to deal with it, that would be great.
If you are a blogger, tell me if your blog has ever paid for you to go somewhere exciting.
