Got My Swag

My D.C. Swag came in today. Now it’s time to start packing! I’m starting to get excited, but with the running around for kids-I’m feeling a bit rushed. 

I’ll try to get my packing started tonight while listening to Betsy DeVos– I can only hear it-but I know there has been a concern of her record and support for those reporting sexual assault. There has been a “Dear Betsy” campaign on YouTube from survivors.  She was just questioned about this. This is only one of many concerning things about her. Oh, and grizzly bears. 

Well now I’m just delaying my packing- time to get to work! Gotta get started because  I have a bunch of This Pussy Grabs Back necklaces to make and not a lot of time. 

Getting Ready for D.C.

Hi friends and family! Some of you may know I am planning to attend the D.C. Women’s March next week. I decided to use this platform to help you follow along.

I’m going to start blogging about our planning and process and micro-blogging our road trip and march experience. It likely will not be eloquent- but I will do my best.

Yesterday my lovely friend Sarah Jane and I were interviewed by a company that owns 30-40 local television news stations around the country- to discuss why we are going to the march and what we hope to gain from going. I’ll post the segment once it airs, our lovely filmaker ask great questions and we talked for about an hour so I hope there are at least 30 seconds where I’ll sound semi intelligent.

For the segment they asked to film us making our signs. We spent almost three hours talking and making signs with our children. He asked the kids some good questions (not sure if that will air) and we had a lot of fun.

I haven’t done a whole lot of planning. We are leaving early Thursday and driving in to D.C. ┬áSarah Jane has family in town so we will stay there. That is the extent of my planning for now. Oh, and I decided which shoes to wear! It’s supposed to be warm and hopefully not wet-so running shoes will be it! No boots! Yay!

Below are our signs. On the other side of the rainbow (yes I did just say that) is the American Flag. Because that flag belongs to us all. I think I’ll also make something that says Compassionate Laws, Not Walls – or something to represent the Christian Left.

But for now, we’re set!

And I also made this necklace. I think I’m going to make a lot more to give away in D.C.

Goodnight my friends, family (even those of you boiling with anger. I love you-just close your eyes and look the other way)
