What Was I Thinking!

I have a really bad habbit. That is if I get something in my mind. I don't stop until I achieve it...
So, we have this great little weekly mailer that goes out in our area every Tuesday. I enjoy the information that it shares, Mostly because it is just local stuff. It has a different place to eat featured each week, ok they have to review the same places over and over, but the "critic" does try something different each time he goes back. Also, there is a "Sound Off" page(s) that lets people whine about what ever is bugging them that week. I get my best laughs from it.
Anyway, I have been thinking for oh...since last March or April that this would be a great place to let parents know what was going on in the two school districts in our area. What fun activites such as carnivals, red ribbon week, ect were happening stuff like that. What do you think? Lunch menu, Weekly Announcments...get the picture.
Well, that was the pitch I gave the two editors...and believe it or not...THEY LIKED IT! So, MY first deadline is in two weeks! I haven't done anything like this since I was in High School, in other words a very long time!! But, I am excited and looking forward to a new place in life.
I will take any suggestions that you think you would like to see as a parent to help you manage your child's school week. KEEP YOUR FINGERS CROSSED!

That is too funny about doing a review on the same restaurant every week...
What would I like to hear as a parent from the school? What holidays & observed & when breaks are.
I just totally lost my train of thought. I just noticed my bra strap is broken & I have been out & about all day. I wonder how long that has been like that... Thought I felt a little free-r then normal!!! OH MY!

What a great idea. You are going to be so great at this. I can tell you are a passionate person and that is really all that is needed. Any help will be great.

Bren is so funny. That was a tickler.

Good luck Janiece and can't wait to see the update on this one.

Congrats on the new gig! Sounds like it should be fun and hopefully keep you out of trouble for a little while. As a person who does not have kids in school, but still likes to support the local school district I like to know info about plays, or games or concerts that are going on. I know my mom liked to know the lunch menu. Registration deadlines, school picture days...just in case those notes don't make it home.
Good luck with'll have to keep us posted on how it is going.
