Yesterday I spent 2 1/2 hours stapling black paper to the walls of the school gym. We were decorating for Jessica's 8th grade graduation, which is tonight (Wednesday). My back was killing me when I got home from getting up and down off a step stool and reaching with the crappy stapler. After I got home I did a quick change and clean up and took Jessica to her friend's 8th Grade Graduation at another school. I cannot believe how some girls dress!! 4 inch rinestone heals??? Crazy!! And 8th Grade Grad is NOT what it used to be. I'm pretty sure for mine I just got dressed at home?? No nails done, did my own hair and make up. These kids all have hair appts and nail appts and people to do their make up. CRAZY! Jessica got her nails done last weekend and amazingly hasn't broken one yet. My sister in law took her to get them done and paid for it. She is also going to "do her hair and make up" tonight. I'm sure she'll look great but I kind of miss the simpler days! Anyhow, here's Jess and her friends last night. I HATE the shirt she has on, but you can't tell your kids you hate their clothes without WWIII starting.
Jessica's friend was Valavictorian. She has a 4.0 all the way through 7th and 8th grade (probably forever really). My friend, her mom, would ground her if she got a B+. Guess that's one way to get your kids to succeed?? Hopefully she won't do the full rebellion until after high school lol. You know it's got to happen sometime. She had 2 speeches to give last night and did a great job. My pictures from inside the gym are crap though so not sharing those. I swear they must install some very weird lighting in gyms so that parents can't get any proof that their kids were in there.
UGH it's almost time to hop in the shower already to go back to the torture chamber and finish decorating. I have no idea what I am going to wear tonight....
Ok I'm procrastinating, editing this to add my picture from after 8th Grade Graduation. Sitting with my Grandparents who have both passed away.
