Prom Update

I have had a couple of emails asking about what Amy decided to do about prom. And since I can't think of anything else to blog about at the moment I'll give you an update!

She has totally decided to go visit her BFF at college this weekend! She is using some of her birthday money and she and her friend are planning a grand adventure. I wish I could be a fly on the wall to tell you the truth! One of the other benefits (for me anyway) of her not going to prom or after-prom is that I won't feel obligated to work at after-prom. Anyone who knows me knows that I can get a little (okay, a LOT) cranky if I don't get enough sleep. And a party that starts at 11 and ends at 4 a.m. is NOT going to end with a happy Kristi.

I think that this was the right decision for her. Amy is really suffering from senioritis right now. It's not the classes or work that is getting her down. It's just that she is so over all the drama and bitchiness that everyone seems to be exuding right now. She is done with high school and ready to move on to the next step. It's such an exciting time for all of us!

The only part of this year end stuff that is freaking me out a little bit is this: you know how fast time has gone from January 1st until now? That is the same amount of time I am looking at until she is at school. I don't know if I'm ready for this......

Hey Kristi, glad to hear she worked out a good plan. I think it's a great idea for her to get a taste of college. And even though we'd all like to be a fly on the wall at times, its sometimes better to not be one, and just enjoy in the not knowing.

I don't think I would be a happy camper at 4 a.m. myself, so sleep-tight!

My son hasn't figured out prom yet so I still don't know where that's going.

Thanks for stopping by, and yes I'm extremely happy with the floor!

I'm so glad she made the choice to visit her BFF. And I'm with you on the 4 AM thing. I'm often getting up then. It would kill me to STAY up until then!

Good for her! I hope she has a great weekend! And I can't believe how fast time flies with these kids of ours. No matter how old they are, the time goes too fast!

I like her decision. She won't miss anything at prom, but she'll spend lots of fun time in FoCo. Wheee!

I'm sure you're not ready for it. You'll never be ready for it. How can you? It's going to suck and we, out here in bloggy land, with empathize with you and listen to you complain. Not to be negative, but seriously, if my girls were going to college right now, I'd be wigging out. Time. Needs. To. Stop.
