PTA--Take 3

I am stuck doing the PTA fundraiser again for Jr. High. I have no idea how it happened. I was somehow completely blindsided...or maybe I am just incredibly lame. I have always known I have had a problem saying NO and caring too much about how my actions affect others. Compassion ALWAYS gets me in trouble. I am STRESSED, FRUSTRATED, and ANNOYED that it is even more difficult to get people to help in JR. HIGH than in ELEMENTARY. And I think I am probably the biggest sucker in the world.

Oh man, that's hard. I'm sure you will do a great job. You are so awesome Rachel! I hate getting sucked into things like that too though.

It is so true. The older the students get the less the parents are involved. It is the total opposite of how it should be. If only Jr. High and High School parents cared as much as they did when their child started kindergarten.

I am sorry that you are frustrated! It is hard to watch other parents neglect their responsibilities for their children and have to make up the difference! And, even though you aren't happy about it, I am glad that there are parents like you who are willing to step up and do what needs to be done to help the students! You are a great example to everyone around you!

I'm sorry I know that must be hard and very stressful but if anyone can do it you can.

Now wait just a minute, sister! You're not doing it alone...I'm your stressed, frustrated, annoyed co-fundraiser VP. And WE CAN DO IT!!

And then, we must NEVER say "sure" again!!

So hey....give me some credit!
