Just saying Hi!


Still no word about the SNAFU with my husband's job. The woman refuses to return our phone calls or make an appointment to talk to my husband, so he's off to file a grievance with the employment office.

In happier news Cub Scouts is really taking off this year!! We have a new den leader and a crop of parents who are really involved, not just playing on their phones for an hour.

I was getting worried about our pack because the last two years our leadership was in the toilet. The lady who had been running it didn't half train the guy who took over and he was kind of an idiot anyway. Then we had a bunch of people quit because of the gay thing and I never realized how hateful some supposedly "Christian" people are until I had to discuss it with some concerned parents. And one woman's husband was a preacher!! Seeing as how our group is 1 thru 5th graders, it's not really an issue, but they really had their panties in a bunch over it. These are also some of the "phone" parents I was talking about, so I really don't take them seriously.

We're selling popcorn and that's always fun. The boys are always excited and that's even when they find out that can't keep the money! My son is doing great this year so far. Scouts has really helped him overcome his shyness, so he's hitting up everyone he knows; his teachers, the neighbors, folks at church. In a week he's sold more than he did all of last year, so I'm very proud of him. If you love overpriced popcorn and want to help send him to camp this summer, you can buy it here Trail's End (I shortened the link because the original is crazy long.)

That's it for today and thanks for reading!! <3
