Yuk, just an overall cruddy day. Woke up during the night with a sore throat and it has just went downhill from there. I walked the kids to school as I normally do, and then instead of going for my normal nice, long walk I went straight home. Put Sammy in a paper diaper because I didn't feel like changing diapers as often as I would have to in cloth, put her down for her morning nap, and then put myself to bed. But I woke up with a fever...not good. I feel a bit better now, but still not 100%.
Everyone on Parent Council at school is asking why I didn't come to the dinner meeting that they had at a local steakhouse last week...and I simply tell them that I couldn't come because it was planned for 5:00...when the previous years it had been at 6 or later. Should I have come and brought all 3 kids with me??? This peeves me off a bit as I am always at the school when needed, always ready to lend a hand...but they couldn't be bothered to have the meeting a little bit later so that I could come, and they knew full well that Scott doesn't come home most days until near 6:00. It really, really makes me feel like just letting someone else take on the yearbook and cooking a jillion hot dogs. Yeah, good luck. 160 students and 3 parents show up to these things. Oh well, Scott says I should know better, that I'm just a mom and apparently I have nothing better to do in these people's minds. Sorry to rant, but I'm peeved LOL. There is a huge Subway lunch on Monday...and I've already decided that someone else can hand out all those sandwiches, sort out who ordered what juice, etc. I'm done. $900 it cost for this lunch. Sort of silly...for sandwiches???
Oh...and I just checked my email and the PAC secretary (position I held last year and gave up when Sammy was born) emailed me to let me know that Parent Council is buying muffins and coffee from Timmy's for all the teachers on the last day of school. Is that ok with me? I emailed back, "Sure, that's ok with me. What are they getting us?". ROFL...now to just sit back and wait for the puzzled emails to roll in...
*Sigh*. Honestly, during my first year of Parent Council duties, our President had sort of warned me that the shine would soon wear off and I would realize that it wasn't fair that only a few of us parents were doing all of the work...and that someday I would feel a bit jaded...it only took me 4 years LOL...
And to top it all off, I just saw the cutest little girl on a blog that I frequent...wearing the cutest little dress in the whole world...and I realized that Sammy doesn't have any dresses that fit her right now. Which just may send me right over the edge.
Thanks for listening. I'm gonna go eat something chocolaty now.
