2 weeks left til summer vacation... HOME STRETCH!

It has been a while since I wrote... I boycotted Idol this year so no more updates on that. My friend said from the beginning that David Cook would win... No idea who that is but is sounds like he is in the top 2! Good for She She (the friend that predicted) :)

I have started playing the game that should not be named again... I missed it... I am addicted, again *sigh* I had missed my friends from it, though. One of them is the reason I am writing a blog! Oh the inspiration! :P

My 4 year old is now out of school for the summer. I was one of 2 PTA presidents for her school (40 students). I WONT be doing that again next year. Too much drama puts a bad taste in my mouth. My 6 year old has 2 more weeks. I am one of 2 room parents in his class this year. I still have to get done an apron for both teachers with hand prints from each child as well as a cookbook with family recipes from all the kids in the class, a gift card (got all but one check so far) and a party to plan for the last day of school. Needless to say I wont be a room parent again next year but I have to say, I was an OK room parent. I usually don't toot my own horn about things but I feel I can about both the room parent and PTA president positions. Someone called me an "alpha" last week... I never thought I would ever be viewed as one. He meant it as a compliment but I was quite embarrassed actually. It was in a group of about 10 people, half of whom I know very well, 2 whom I didn't know at all and the rest I kinda knew. When I think alpha, i think of someone pushing the others away to get things done... pissing on territory if you will. That was not me at ALL this year. I was more inclusive with the parents this year and we all accomplished so much. He said he used the term because I came in and got things done. LOL maybe? We were pretty successful this year I think. I am proud :)

Yesterday we went to Taste of Alpharetta in the pouring down rain. If the AJC posts pictures they took of us, I will gladly post. I am still learning how to "fancy up the place" on here so it may take a few days.

If I blog a little more often, the posts will not be so.... scattered? Ah screw it! Those of you that know me know I am scattered... Expect more of the same LOL

Give yourself an extra five minutes of sleep for all the typing you did. You're off to a great start!
