Why You Should Always Check Your Kid's Homework

Hello Bloggies.
I sisncerely apolgize for my recent lack of posts.
I was crazy busy over Christmas, had a hard time getting back in my schedule when school started, (still having a hard time getting back in my schedule), had a lot going on for a few weeks, was sick last week, and had a no snow- snow day yesterday.
I promise I will try to be better.
You can help me by praying for my kids to not miss the bus in the morning. If I have to drive them it cuts directly into my blogging time.
.
Anyway...
.
This is a picture that a young girl drew for a homework assignment about what she wanted to be when she grew up:
And this is the letter that her mother sent to the school the next day:
Dear Mrs. Jones,
I wish to clarify that I am not now, nor have I ever been, an exotic dancer.
I work at Home Depot and I told my daughter how hectic it was last week before the blizzard hit.
I told her we sold out every single shovel we had, and then I found one more in the back room, and that several people were fighting over who would get it.
Her picture doesn't show me dancing around a pole. It's supposed to depict me selling the last snow shovel we had at Home Depot.
From now on I will remember to check her homework more thoroughly before she turns it in.
Sincerely,
Mrs. Smith

You always make me laugh when I most need it.

I am over the 15 lb lost mark!!! I have dropped one whole size and am getting ready to drop another.
I know it will slow down as my metabolism regears, but I am doing great.
