    Much Better, Thanks!

    Last week was a tough week for me emotionally. Our youngest graduated from 5th grade and earned the Principal's award.


    I've spent the last 10 years volunteering at her elementary school as room mother, tutoring math & reading students, PTA president (4 years), PTA secretary (2 years), RIF (Reading Is Fundamental) chairperson (8 years), popping popcorn for 300 students every Friday, Fundraising chairperson (6 years), School Improvement Team parent advisor (6 years), Holiday Gift Shop chairperson (6 years) and too many other things to list.

    I'll miss the kids more than anything. It has been very rewarding to watch their growth, both physically and scholastically. I'll no longer be able to walk through the hallways and get a cheerful, " Hi, Mrs. Sign!" along with giant hugs from appreciative students. No one will know who I am at #2's new school and I'm a little sad about that.

    I'm giving myself the summer to recuperate and then I'll try to figure out what I'm going to focus my energy on next. I've got some ideas.

    You will find something to focus your attention on. And you know, no one knew who you where 10 years ago. If you decide to head that direction again at the new school, you will get there eventually.

    My I love the last picture and that top looks fantastic on you. Funny thing, when I lost a bunch of weight before I bought a top very similar. The color and that type of top make you look even more wonderful than before and that is hard to do. WhooHooo!

    I love you in pink, you are gorgeous! And what a nice list of things you have done with your girls, that is going to really mean so much to them in their adult years. YEAH SIGN!

    Hey..I need some blog help (anybody else with two cents, help!) For some reason, all of a sudden, IE will not load my complete blog. I took down the last two graphics and still...nuttin. I have no clue what to look at now....do you have any suggestions?

    Pretty in pink!!!

    Hey I just saw that G-MAN took my thoughts like 5 hours ago and before I even read this post. That's pretty good.

    Ok so...I say you enjoy your free time for other important things like pedicures and manicures and stuff like that.

    Uh, won't the kids that know you from elementary school know who you are next year? If you stay involved, the rest will soon learn who you are.

    PS
    Your looking great sexy!
