Monday On My Mind

Alternative title: Sometimes Mondays show up before you’re ready.

And still, I want to tell you that I won my reelection to the Board of Selectmen in my town. I was the only one to take out nomination papers and turn them in, so I was the only one on the ballot. However, I had a challenge from a last minute write in campaign which pitched me into high gear last week. I’m happy to say that I rallied my troops, which resulted in a good turn out and I have secured 3 more years.

So. I spent all day Saturday at the polls, greeting voters and doing lots of socializing … something I haven’t done in over a year. And yesterday, Dale and I drove around town for several hours, picking up all my campaign signs. It’s a great thing to have wonderful support. It’s also maybe a little exhausting. And it also means maybe Monday shows up a little sooner than I’d prefer!

All of this is to say … I’m tired this Monday . . . but in a very satisfied way.

  1. Congratulations! We call those a “Where’s my weekend weekend?”, and I had one too. But yours sounds more exciting.

  2. Congratulations, Carole! I hope you continue to feel validated and happy as long as possible! Enjoy your victory, and I try to sneak in a little extra rest this week!

  3. Congratulations, Carole! That’s a well-deserved victory! And I think you also deserve a little nap today, if you can manage it!

  4. Big Congratulations to you, Carole, on three more years! And I’d also like to thank you for picking up your campaign signs. The landscape is always littered with thousands of them in both NJ and DE after elections, and the lack of responsibility pisses me off.

  5. Congratulations, Carole! You mentioned you were collecting ideas from readers for future posts… What it means to be a town selectman would be an interesting one for some of us!

  6. So happy you will be representing us for another 3 years and that write-in nonsense had no real impact!
