Drumroll please!!!

Wow! Today is a milestone for all sorts of different reasons!
-this is my 100th post!
-today is election day (you DID vote, right?)
-Princess Bear returned to school today at her new location
-Once again I'm a busy bee...motivation just bit me & I'm on a roll. Its amazing what a pissed off mama can do!

So first and foremost I want to thank those of you that have become a part of my life through blogland! Its been awesome! I've learned & grown a lot! I've met and become friends with some incredible people! When I started on this blogging journey I had no idea what to expect or what I was doing (in some ways I still don't!) but its been fun! Here's to the next 100 posts!

Today is Election Day. I'm not going to go into one of my political rants here. The only rant I will go into (& it will be short!) is how imperative it is that you vote! I know that in some ways this election may seem like a lose/lose situation but its still a right that many have laid their lives on the line for so go vote please! It doesn't matter who you vote for just that you do it! That way you can crow if your candidate wins or have a foot to stand on if yours doesn't & then you can b#$ch to your hearts content! You don't vote you have not write to crow or b#$ch so go vote!!!

Princess Bear started at her new location today. I won't even go into the chaos that ensued. She was a bit nervous about going to a new school and there was only so much that I can tell her. I walked out of the school about to launch on the other hand. My friend Danita is the aide in Princess Bears room so she took me to the class room so I could get a feel for things. Of course there is no A/C and the temps are supposed to be in the mid 70's. I'm so scared that they will be overwhelmed and not keep a close eye on PB. Also there needs to be some more planning. If you were walking your child in you had to park a couple of blocks away and walk them in. Now most of the special needs kids have been sent to a different location but PB & her integrated class are at the new location with most of the rest of the transplanted students. Several kids in her class use walkers. They had to park a few blocks away and walk in....crossing a busy street. No a good thing by any stretch of the imagination. I also noticed that there was NO WATER for the kids since the water hasn't been tested by the health department yet. So I've done a few things. I've got a call in to the Superintendent of School. I've already talked to the director of grounds and have established a working relationship with him. He is aware of PB's need to keep cool so I'm glad I got that resolved. I've also started a petition to get a water truck brought back to the fire station a block away from my house & the school. It seems as though it will be a minimum of 3-6 months before the kids can get back into their old school. So I'm going to be the irritating mom calling and checking on progress.

So that has been what is going on in my neck of the woods. OH! A few more reasons to go vote! Show your I Voted Sticker @ Krispy Kreme & you get a free Patriotic Donut & if you go to Starbucks & show your sticker you'll get a free cup of coffee! Who doesn't like free stuff?!!!? So go forth and vote!

Happy 100th post!

I voted early and my girls were with me and got to experience it too. I explained each step of the process as I cast my ballot and we all high-fived after we were done.
