Rant and Multititude Monday

First for the rant:

  Am I the ONLY parent in the US of A that HATES school fundraisers???
Call me a bad mama if you will, but I can't stand having my own door knocked on 3,000 times a school year asking for pledges, or to buy candy bars or a wrapping paper tube that costs $13.00.
I'm going to say something that makes me sound further like the wicked witch of the West-
I don't let my kids participate.
Yep, not at all.
I will give them a few bucks for their up and coming jog-a-thon, that's it.
They aren't even allowed to ask grandma let alone the old lady down the street on social security.
Yes, it's nice to go on field trips or have fun events.
But I find it down right rude to ask people to fork over their hard earned cash for my child to go to a museum.
And even family gets hit up so many times by so many kids that I have called a ban on all fundraisers in this home.

Rant over.

  On to multitude Mondays:

Fundraising is the pits, agreed.
I am thankful for a warm house and cup of tea on cool fall nights.
