just a few random thoughts that have been on my mind...

  • i went into Hobby Lobby yesterday and was accosted by Christmas. in August. and it's 107 degrees outside. i'm not sure how this whole life-in-the-desert thing is going to work out.
  • i adore it when Shorty sings himself to sleep. tonight it's Old MacDonald.
  • i don't like it when the hubby is out of town on business. i know he's working, but in my head he is snorkeling. all day long. while i'm dealing with crabby kids and having half-eaten fish sticks for my dinner.
  • i cracked the wine tonight to have with my soggy fish.
  • perhaps the wine is contributing to the random nature of this post.
  • today i volunteered to be room mom for the twins' preschool class. i thought it would be a great way to be involved and meet people. then i realized that i don't know the first thing about being a room mom.
  • middle school teachers (which i was, once upon a time) technically have room moms, but it is about that time that room-mom enthusiasm completely ends. middle school room moms are more of a theory than a reality.
  • i don't think a theoretical preschool room mom is going to cut it.
  • monday a scorpion dropped from the vent in the bottom of the microwave onto the spoon rest on the oven, where it got stuck.
  • tuesday the microwave blew up. okay, it just shorted out.
  • is it possible for scorpions to use those pinchers to destroy a microwave's wiring?
  • i despise scorpions.
  • i will blame them for everything.
  • including global warming.
  • while it's kind of fun rambling like this, i think i need to stop. it's time to curl up with my vino, my book, my cat, and my tempurpedic sleep vortex mattress.
good night and good luck.

GREAT post!!!

I was Ethan's Room Mom for his Kindergarten class and that is where my room mom experience on my "mom resume" will end. It was unfortunately caused by the parents I had to deal with rather than the actually "duties" having to be preformed. It was mainly for holiday parties and here was my motto: Feed them something yummy (most likely including sugar), play something fun or make a craft, send them home with a treat bag full of things the mother wants to throw away and call it a day! It was always a success!!! Haha!

Good luck with being a Room Mom and those crazy scorpions...ewww!!!

PS. Where is the application for Room Dad's...I would like to see those???

Oops....remove that apostrophe in Dad's...we clearly know they truly don't "possess" much of anything. LOL :)

That was mean. :(
