Quote of the Day and a minor Rant

What you dislike in another take care to correct in yourself. 

Thomas Sprat

A very important quote to remember.  Its been crazy around here.  It's finally the last day of Chinese New Year - where did all that 2 weeks go?  It just flew by.  I was away in the for a week,  came back - it was back to school.  Clarissa's teacher dropped a bombshell on thursday that all the prefects had to make cards for Valentine's Day. The cards are to be sold at RM0.50???  Ok... Plus they are taking orders from each class.  The results were an eye-popping 50 over cards per class.  How many classes?  12 classes - how many prefects - 27 to make around 700 over cards???  Wait for the grand finale - the prefects have to stay back tuesday - tomorrow to make them and guess what?  We start our exams on thursday.  So what gives?

To lessen the load on the kids - I have been making cards with a frenzy.  Coupled with CNY engagements e.g. open houses, lunch, picking up kids,  going back to Johore etc - I managed to make 220 very simple cards.  I just didn't want the kids slaving over these cards which I was told that they don't even know where the money is going to go to???  Sigh... Sometimes I just wonder why the teacher and principal decide to do it last minute.  But no worries - I have got it under control and issue is over.  Up next - every mom's nightmare - EXAM FEVER!!! That would be another blog post.
