That's me! LOL I went to my first PTA meeting ever last night. While walking towards the school all I wanted was to see at least one other melonated parent there. I got in and I saw more than a few and it made my heart glad. There where many nationalities in attendance and a quite a few daddies! Awwwwwww! Matter of fact there was standing room only in the small auditorium of the school. That's HOT! I remember back in the day I would beg my mom to go to PTA meetings. It was mostly because my close friends parents went and I knew they would be there, but see always said no. Fortunately for Pooka I am going to be up in that school every moment I can!
The principal mentioned that he wanted to try to start a chess/checkers club for the school. Me, being a chess club member back in the day, was like BINGO, that's what I'll volunteer for, but they are doing it in the mornings and I just can't swing that. I haven't played either game in years. :-(
It's the 2 week of school and the Fall fundraiser has already started! If you would like to view the items for sale, I can email you the fundraiser link. That's right, you can order online and for a few extra bucks they will mail it to you! When I read through the fundraiser packet I was just blown away! When I was in elementary school I vividly recall me and my neighbor going door to door harassing every neighbor we can to buy something! Times have changed and with folks not in there right mind you can't send the kids door to door no more, they just may not come home. But if you really wanna see, seriously, let me know.
In other Pooka news, her doctor called me yesterday and told me she doesn't have the tree nut allergy! Yipeee! This weekend I am going to give her a piece of pecan just to see if she breaks out in hives like she did 3 years ago. I will have my benedryll in hand just in case.
While driving to the school Pooka asked me a question that took me off guard...
"What do you do with your left foot?"
I didn't know what she was talking about so I asked her "what about my left foot?"
"Why don't you use it down there?" As she pointed towards the car petals.
I paused for a moment and asked myself if she was observing me drive, cuz I really hope that's not the case, kids like to imitate! I told her the truth tho'....
"You only need to drive with your right foot, you don't have to use the left one"
"Oh" as I watched the new info sink in to her brain.
Lesson from yesterdays conversation: Keep my car keys with me at ALL times and put them somewhere high up when I'm in the house! LOL, but seriously...
In family news, the guy who murdered my cousin Memorial Day weekend last year got sentenced to 17-21 years for 2nd degree murder. I don't think that's long enough but he got off scott free when he killed 2 other people earlier on so I guess something is better than nothing. My cousin who got shot was the son of my grandfathers brother. Could you imagine going to your brothers funeral during the trial about the murder of your son? I wish I could send or do something to ease whatever him and my aunt are experiencing, but there is really nothing you can do but send up thoughts and prayers.
