"Sometimes you're the windshield...

...and sometimes you're the bug." And sometimes - when everything splats together at 100 miles an hour like it's doing today - you can't really tell which role you're playing but just hang on as best you can and ride out the collision. The official day starts - after only about 3 hours of sleep -- at 8 a.m. with a seven-hour training session (way across town) on writing the Single Plan for Student Achievement - a major planning and budgeting document - for the neighborhood school. Then I have to get home in time to pick up and organize handouts for the Neighborhood Council meeting and candidate forum, and be there to help set up at 5 p.m. for the 7 p.m. meeting/event, which won't end until about 10 p.m. Wish me luck.

Splats --

- Last minute tidying up for the cleaning lady
- Made it across town by 8 for the 7-hour training session (which led to some really interesting discussions with the other school folk)
- Put out some last minute fires and chased down last-minute items for the candidate forum
- Got to meeting/forum venue 2 + hours early to meet audio crew, rearrange furniture setup, distribute handouts, etc.
- Attended meeting/event (it went very well!)
- Got call in middle of meeting from Alex and Dan, who needed me to mediate bedtime disputes (again!)
- Home around 10:30 to finally eat dinner.
- Dropped into bed by 11.
