Yah, so I figure that tomorrow I'll probably do stuff like change India's diaper, make breakfast, help Jordan get dressed, and pretend to Jordan that I'm taking India to daycare because it would be a dagger to his heart if he knew that he was going to school and we were staying home to have an all-day long underwear dance party.
(Or should it be "all-day-long underwear," even though that seems like a lot of hyphens? Because right now it looks like a long-underwear dance party. And neither of us wear long underwear.)
I might make myself some more coffee while I clean up the breakfast detritus, by which time India will likely have pooped, so I'll change a poopy diaper.
And then India and I will do stuff like go on a walk and feed each other Cheerios and spend half an hour taking the top off a container and putting it back on and clapping our hands. Then we'll eat a bit of lunch and smear it in our hair and scream a little while that's being wiped off and then India will hopefully take a nap.
At which point I suppose I'll get cleaned up and put on a suit because I AM GOING TO THE WHITE HOUSE AND I WANT TO SAY IT AGAIN I AM GOING TO THE WHITE HOUSE!
This might just be pure normal for a number of people in Washington, but I myself have never been.
A couple years ago Jordan and I went on a White House garden tour which would've been lovely but for the fact that there's nothing remotely interesting to a toddler about a garden tour except sprinting off to places you are not allowed to go.
Because of your generosity, my fundraising efforts have been way more successful than I ever expected. And as such, I got invited to join a small group of Out of the Darkness Overnight Walk fundraisers and staff to go to the White House for a briefing on administration efforts regarding mental health and suicide prevention issues.
Going to a meeting at the White House apparently often means going to a meeting in the office buildings near the White House.
I got an email today saying, ahem, that "unless some crisis interferes we are now scheduled to have our briefing in the historic Roosevelt Room, in the West Wing of the White House, just steps from the Oval Office."
STEPS FROM THE OVAL OFFICE I AM GOING TO BE IN THE WEST WING STEPS FROM THE OVAL OFFICE AT THE WHITE HOUSE!
Can you tell I'm a little excited?
