Lloyd had Bad Movie Night tonight (Tuesday), and I had a little bit of hope that I would go into Lincoln after work and bum around. However, as I was packing up my stuff, a mom reminded me, “That meeting is tonight if you want to come.”
Dang it!!! I forgot.
I really wanted to go to Lincoln, but earlier I had expressed interest in her plight and she invited me to the city council meeting where the people on her street were going to protest another street going in their backyard wildlife/farmland area.
That is the short version of their story.
The meeting – just their part – was two and a half hours long!!!! Oy! I had signed on for maybe 45 minutes of support, but as it went on and on and on I felt bad about wanting to leave, so I didn’t. Plus, everyone spoke passionately and rationally (except one lady who sounded a tiny bit crazy), and it was like watching a bad movie or being mostly through a badly-written book: I needed to see how it ended.
I did feel badly that I was sending a lot of ‘I am bored’ texts to Brad and Lloyd. My clicky phone gave me away.
The council voted 6 to 2 to pass the road. Boooo.
Now I am exhausted and headed for bed. What did you do with your Tuesday evening?
