A couple days ago I overheard my husband tell a friend that "Debbi was going to spend Sunday being a good Democrat."
And I did. I even wore blue. Heh. And I did not wear anything Christmas-y, which definitely put me in the minority at the meeting I attended yesterday afternoon.
It was a three(plus)-hour drive north in the fog and rain and, of course, an equally long drive home. In the fog and rain. The drive home actually took longer because it was oh-dark-thirty when I left the meeting and I tend to drive a little more slowly in the fog and rain and DARK.
I'm so old. And my grandchildren would just love it that I drive even more slowly than I already do.
As the chairperson of the Speakers Bureau for the West Virginia Federation of Democratic Women, I was on the agenda to encourage the group to sign up for a Facebook account and "like" our new page. One of the ongoing themes for Democratic women's groups is encouraging younger women to become involved. (At 61, I was the third- or fourth-youngest woman in the room yesterday.)
If you want younger women, you have to be where they are. And they certainly are on Facebook.
So I did that and we actually had quite a good discussion about using Facebook to promote activities and generate interest and support for issues. Mission accomplished.
Ah, well, I have four more years for that one.
