Catching Up!

I haven't disappeared. This searching for a new principal is big stuff. Actually 2 days of interviews and then a "hash it all out" session, fried me for the week. Oh, what I could write about if they didn't make me sign my rights away in blood before I left the Superintendent's office. News from other blogs is that ManicDawn, Michelle, and Mimi are going to meet for the first time in Chicago this weekend and Dawn, Michelle and Mimi will see Oprah on Monday. This show will be live on Monday, so we get instant gratification if we want to scan the audience for these wonderful 3 women. Buford Betty reports that there are Lilly Pulitzer dresses in Cotsco this week. I also saw some in TJMaxx. 

K is turning 11 on May 6th and having a spa party (complete with sleep over). Have any of you held a spa party before? We are looking for ideas on what worked, what didn't. I think there will be about 6 or 7 of them. 

OK, going to sit with K and B while they watch RV with Robin Williams. It is very funny if you like potty humor. They are cracking up, I am surprised you can't hear them!

I hate to admit, I went to see RV when it was in the theater and have to admit I laughed through the whole thing.

Good luck with the principal search. We only have one elementary school in town and they finally completed the principal search about a week ago, and a new one is hired. WHEW.

RV is a great family movie! You'll like it.

Our school just finished the search. They televised some of the interview on the local cable channel. I wanted to hide...

Glad you're back!

I'll admit to laughing while watching RV. We've done a couple of spa parties. One at the mall was very $$$, but sooooo easy. One at home was messier (skin, hair, nails) but the girls loved it.

I've been thinking about how you have a committee to choose a principal. Our principal arrived via a lawsuit she filed against the district. She had never taught and her previous job performance had been sub-par, but the lawsuit terrified the district and here she is. I don't think we're the better for her arrival either.

I laughed my head off at RV. :)
