So, I had my first “party” of the new school year tonight. Oh, and I had my first leadership role in the MBA program today. I am the committee chair of the opening social. I found out about this on Thursday night, and since I was going to be out of town, and today was Labor day, I needed a plan.
The brilliant idea: have a group g-chat this morning. It went so well. Seriously. I was a little nervous about the whole thing, but I delegated and we all took on our part and, voila, the party is planned. I am so pleased with how things went. And really, I could use a leadership role, so I’m going to take them as I can.
And then tonight was our Mafia party. I didn’t actually plan this one, but it was great. We had about 30 people (including kids) and it was really great. Seriously, it went off without a hitch.
So, I definitely have a little crush on Brian Henderson. Very, very, very little. I’m pretty sure he has zero interest in me, other than maybe trying to make himself feel better by proving that he’s a nice guy, since Debbie doesn’t like him so much. Anyway. He showed up late with Matt Frances, Adam, and Richard…the boys whose house I used to clean. Anyway, it was nice to see him. And he gave me the little side hug.
Here’s the lamest thing ever. I think Danielle might thing that I’m interested and I feel like I’m back in high school again. Like now she will be interested in him. So ridiculous. Especially since it bugs me. The difference is (I hope) that I have a much healthier sense of self and that things work out as they should. No need to force it. Although I do want to learn how to act interested…maybe.
Finally, I’m feeling really good about the things I need to work on and the fact that I need to work on them. I reading this great book (and the scriptures) and I’m on my prayers these days. It really does make a difference. Really and truly.
Okay, bedtime it is. I’m going to try for the early morning thing manana. We’ll see how it goes.
