Wednesday's Works

I found this sweet cotton floral pillowcase the other day, and was shocked when I looked at the tag and read "Tommy Hilfiger".  I would have bet money that it was vintage.  No matter, I knew it would look smashing as an upcycled pod.  Made this last night after I collapsed on the couch. 
My main work for the last two days has been PTA related.  Even as a teacher for many years, and as an active parent in all of Sophie's classes, I had no idea just how much the PTA does for the school.   From readying and stuffing hundreds of Back to School packets, to laminating and cutting carpool tags, to stamping/numbering/delivering new textbooks to several grade levels, to preparing a welcome back lunch for 70 teachers, the jobs are endless. 
I'm not complaining... yet.  I like being part of the excitement of getting ready for a new school year.  I like the camaraderie with fellow parents.  I like watching it all come together.  And I will like sending Sophie off to that school next Tuesday, knowing she is in excellent, well-prepared hands :)

I think your blog ate my comment. Let's try it again:

As a teacher, I REALLY appreciate everything the PTA does for us. It's fantastic to be treated to a breakfast or lunch once in awhile during the school year. Thank you for all that you do, Jennie! It IS appreciated! :-)

Every female on the planet knows that being a Mom IS the most important job in the world! Without Moms, where in the world would children, men, pets, plants, food, cleanliness, schools, education, TLC, manners, knowledge, and the roles enter infinity...I'm so glad I have a productive, caring, and wonderful person and daughter/Mom to offer our world! ALL WOMEN ARE SUPERWOMEN!!!!
