***Apparently, it's a big deal when the second graders sing "Let There Be Peace on Earth" at the Star Assembly. Such a big deal, in fact, that Risa and Vida have been practicing the song non-stop for weeks now.
Well, the Star Assembly is today at 11:15. I'm saying this more to myself than to you. As a reminder, you see. Because if I miss the Star Assembly which is today at 11:15 and at which my daughters are singing "Let There Be Peace on Earth" and which is a very big honking deal for them, I will be in big, big trouble. Nightmare trouble.
***Later this afternoon, I'll be making my first phone calls on behalf of the Obama campaign. By my 50th call, I imagine I'll be pretty disheartened. Or maybe not! Maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised. No matter what happens, though, I'll keep dialing.
