It's almost over!

I know some of you may be thinking, "Enough with the PTA stuff already!" Feel free to skip reading if this is the way you feel, but honestly, this blog is like a journal for me. It just happens to be one I share with the whole Internet world. Anyway, I like being able to write this stuff down just for my own sake.

I typed up the class rosters, made the signs and called the presenters this weekend. I took the rosters & signs up to school today to deliver to the teacher (Mrs. K) who has been helping me. I delivered the class placement notices to the teachers' boxes. I talked with the principal about making sure the rooms are open in time for the presenters to set up. Dr. B informed me that she is going to be the cake decorating presenter since that is the one who cancelled last week. She told me what she is planning to do and asked if I thought the kids would like that. Gracie signed up for that class, and I assured her that she will love it! Honestly, I'm just impressed that the principal is willing to do this. Some would have said, "Find a replacement. I don't have time for this." To me, she has earned major brownie points!

Not much more to do until tomorrow. Show up early, meet the presenters, I think Mrs. K is going to do most of the "trouble shooting" (and hopefully we won't have any), I'll go to the cake decorating class with Gracie, make sure everything gets cleaned up and go home! *whew* It'll be over!
We had our first Life Group last night. I thought it went really well! We have a nice mix of people, jobs were signed up for willingly (teaching kids, coordinating food, emailing out prayer requests, etc.) I think this will be a good year!
My mother-in-law's birthday is today. 60! My sister-in-law, Erin, and I put our heads together (like our husbands would do anything if we didn't!) and decided to get her a gift certificate for a manicure & pedicure for her and her best friend. We decided she would enjoy a little "girl time." So, I called New Mexico and ordered the certificate and asked them to mail it to me so I could put it in a card, etc. I ordered it a week ago Thursday! I still haven't received it. Now, believe me, mailing stuff from NM to here takes FOREVER. I tease Chris about NM all the time and how they still use the Pony Express. However, Chris' mom mailed us something last Tuesday and we got it 2 days later! I called the "spa" last week and they said they mailed that Friday (a week ago). She said, "Well, I don't know. I guess it'll get there as soon as it can." Yeah, thanks! So, I'm not happy. I really should have gotten it by now. If I get it and the postmark is anything other than the day she said they mailed it, I think I'm going to have to call and insist on getting at least part of my money back because they were dishonest about when they mailed it. Maybe they weren't dishonest, but I just don't understand why I haven't received it yet. Once I get it, I have to put it in a card and send it back to NM! Anyway, Chris is going to call his mom and explain what happened. He won't tell her exactly what the gift is, though.

I suppose your MIL doesn't read your blog?

don't think so! If she does, she's not in for much of a surprise, huh?!?!
