Ramblings of a Mad Piggie

Wednesday, August 09, 2006


Today is another milestone in the J house. The boy went off this morning to register for high school.
Last night, (the procrastinator that I am, of course) started to fill out all the paperwork and checks for the next day. Let's see: $50 for the student card, $65 for the yearbook, $20 for the pe clothes, $28 for the pictures...that's it. I think I got everything covered. Now this is of course on top of all the other "school supplies". Backpack, binders, folders, notebooks, pens, pencils, erasers, compass, protractor, highlighters, colored pencils, ....and on and on and on. The only things I don't have to buy are the glue sticks, pencil boxes, lunch pails and color crayons...cause Hey, he's in high school now! So long gone are those "kindegarten" purchases such as: candy for the class for Halloween, cupcakes on birthdays, xmas present for the teacher and such. In its' place are : money for the snack bar, money for the football games, money for the dances, and money for the soda on the walk home from school.
And to make things worse, the girl is starting junior high.
Lord help me.
