Thurs, Feb 11: 
I'm thinking my daily photos should be photos, but they are about a snapshot of a day in my life. And the PTSA has become a large part of my life. We usually meet on the 1st Thursday of every month, but this month we were having our Science Fair and decided to not pack our schedules too tight since two of us running the Science Fair are also on the PTSA Board. This is my second year as the PTSA Secretary. I am at the end of my term. We can serve for 2 years in any position. I must admit, I LOVE being Secretary. It's a little like being in college with taking all the notes and then going home to type them up to share with the rest of the PTSA members (who do not show up for the meetings).

Tonight we discussed our Board for next year. We need to decide on nominees by the next meeting and then vote the following meeting. I'm hoping some parents come out of the woodwork and decide to be a part of this group. Otherwise, the 10 of us who come to the meetings will continue to decide how to spend all that fundraiser money. Bwaa-haa-haa-ha!!

Seriously though, the PTSA kept my winter depression away last year and I will always be thankful that I am able to be a stay at home mom so that I can volunteer so many hours to my kids school. And that my little 2 are so willing to follow me around school when I am there volunteering (although they do try and sneak off to the playground a lot lately).


  1. I definitely think that getting out and doing things is the key to not going crazy at home in the winter! I find by the end of January, I'm usually thinking about going back to work. That feeling generally passes by May--ha ha! But volunteering more would help me beat that feeling down, I think.

  2. Good for you! I'm really impressed, as being involved at my older kids' school isn't something I make a point of doing. I contribute my time when I can to class parties and such, but it's usually just way too hectic for me with all the little ones. I keep telling myself when the *little* ones are school age....

    You go, Supermom!!

  3. Nice work! Keep it up.

    Just thought i'd let you know too, I've given you an award on my blog...
