Today I have my STAR training meeting in downtown LA — yup, I’m volunteering to read one on one with young kids at local libraries in addition to running ALB. I’ll be honest, I’m feeling a little run down today and feeling slightly stretched, and I’m sad about leaving my road dawg (aka my daughter) for a few hours. But I know it’ll be worth it. Right? She’ll have a great time playing with her friends while I’m learning stuff. Time for the big girl pants. Commitment. Yes, this feels like a commitment. Looking forward to applying some of that knowledge during the May 25 storystravaganza. See you there, right?! Right!
