PTA crap sorted out for tonight's 1st meeting of school year--notsomuch.
In this corner, a tired, lazy SAHM wants to kick back on a rainy day with her coffee, watch Godzilla struggle to save humanity and skim through the blogosphere. In the other? A shape-shifting giant of PTA paperwork, unfinished website and tall stack of junk mail & solicitations Green Girl discovered in the school office looms--threatening to take down Green Girl, the PTA and all future school fundraisers. Will Green Girl tackle the pile and organize the PTA? Will guilt win over self-indulgence? Will Mothra help protect the planet from certain destruction? Will the PTA find enough money this year for a new playground or will they be siderailed by school assemblies and classroom supplies? Will Green Girl's coffee fall from its precarious perch and spill all over the paperwork? Will enough chaperones sign up for this year's sock hop?
Oh the humanity!!!
