Poor, Poor Neglected Girl

My Girl has been going non-stop since well before school ended. Sports, music, babysitting, movie-making for class, campaigning....Campaigning? Yes, yes. My Girl, the Planner of All Things Teenage & Social, ran for Student Council Activities Director for the '06-'07 school year. The other opponents knew they didn't have a rat's chance in a boa constrictor's cage at beating her, so they dropped out and she, fabulous Girl that she is, won unopposed. Of course, she still campaigned, made posters, gave her speech, passed out buttons - she worked HARD.

I am so very proud of her. I knew that she would win. It was just a big head slapping DUH. Ever since she was a LittleGirl she's always been the one to round up the troops, plan the activities, dole out the responsibilities, and ensure that EVERYONE had a great time. When plans involved one "group," she always made it a point to try and include the other "group," if possible. She's a very diplomatic leader - trying to please all of the people all of the time, but understanding that she'll probably satisfy MOST of the people MOST of the time.

Today, she's off to some ridiculous north John Hughes movie suburb - I believe the one where Home Alone was filmed - to begin a softball tournament. Game's at 3:30 or something like that, which puts endtime near 5 - I wouldn't want to have to drive home in a Chicago rush hour from a suburb that far way, no how. Big thanks to her chauffeur this weekend (that would be whomever I paid enough to drive so I don't have to...teee heee).

Girl, I'm SO proud of you. And yes, I chose this picture because it's not one of the best (cuz those are just toooooooo good - wait til I post the hair dryer picture!!!!)
