Why I'm not at work
Friday evening. Wow, what a day! The picture is of our governor signing a series of six bills relating to foster care including AB2488, a bill assigned to me for tracking (and lobbying) on behalf of the State Public Affairs Committee of the Junior League. I just can't describe how it felt to stand there and watch something I'd spoken of and written about so often in the last four months become law. Just wow.
And then I got a call to tell me that Alcott broke his collarbone at the football game I couldn't make because I'm in Sacramento on behalf of foster children. Like Alcott. Very strange feeling. Good news is that at least I won't have to worry about whether he's going to get hurt at one of his games because there won't be any more of those for this season, not for Alcott. Poor darling boy!
