What’s up Party People? In case you have been living under a rock (not that there’s anything wrong with that)….you know that I have started a new gig.
Well, so far it’s been great. While I lucked out with a better laptop….my phone now sucks. SUCKS. Bye Bye Verizon, hello Sprint. WHOMP, WHOMP, WHOMP!
My new office is gorgeous. Big, roomy, spacious and great furniture. *Ding! Ten Points*
My new commute? *insert sigh*
So yeah, it’s been a week full of adjustments. Blogging has fallen to the wayside but I am back. I think I can fit blogging into my new schedule.
Anyway, we are on the verge of swearing in our new President. Folks will be braving the icy tundra to witness this historic event. NOT ME HOMIE!
That ceremony will look great on my High Def, with surround sound as I toast from the couch with the heat blasting and my pj’s and socks keeping me cozy. While my brave friends are out there freezing in long underwear and ski pants….I will be texting them…..”girl….Mrs. O ‘s dress is fabulous. You should see the close up!” You think they’ll hate me after two hours outside? LOL
For me, MLK Day also brings about an annual tradition in my house. The National Day Of Service. Every year, Mr. 1969 and I take the Tali’s out and join our prospective fraternity and sorority for various activities throught the city. We may be out cleaning a park, painting a school or feeding some folks. We look forward to this tradition and to teaching our kids to give back and really represent what the day is about.
When our President Elect ran for office, he called upon each of us to get off the couch, turn the tv off and roll up our sleeves right? How many of you are volunteering on MLK Day to make a difference in your communities? If you are looking for something to do…GO HERE!
Without community organizers, we wouldn’t have MLK, or Mr. Obama. We got to this point because of people wanting to make a difference. I am sure, you can all find something to do or someone to help.
Give an hour….it will make you feel good. Then when you watch our new President get sworn in on the 20th, you’ll feel even better.
Have a great weekend!
