This was a rough weekend both personally and politically. I am still feeling the ramifications of the personal disappointment and the political disappointment will be felt around the world for years to come.
I returned from Washington DC on Friday afternoon with my daughter. Patricia woke me up early Saturday morning complaining that she was hot. She was hot because the air conditioner crapped out. I called my HVAC repairperson but his mother died and he has to go to Boston where his mother lived.
As if that wasn’t enough, my parents called and said they were without electricity and needed a place to stay. I told them I had no A/C but I had electricity. They have been here since Saturday. This ended up working out because my parents can take Patricia to the pool while I work from home.
The political news was even worse. Mexico had their elections over the weekend. I had endorsed my Mexican counterpart Noes Toiaqui for President of Mexico, but she said the results were disastrous. Enrique Peña Nieto won with 37% of the vote. Ms. Toiaqui only had 34. (34 votes, not 34%.) She is currently gathering the voting data and she will be here later this week to look for a pattern to see what worked and what didn’t. I am hoping there is something with the 34 votes that worked that can be applied to my campaign. I am sure she can help me with what not to do based on the 70,000,000 Mexicans who voted for somebody else.
I am hoping I can an HVAC technician today. Another heat wave is supposed to start tomorrow and my parents’ home might be without power until Friday. What doesn’t kill me will make me stronger. I’m going to look like I am on steroids by the end of the week.
