shame on the chamber of commerce

I found out last night that the chamber of commerce is NOT going to pay the youth group for the fund raiser that they did for them. What? That means Nikki is out almost $200!

The chamber of commerce had these phone books printed up and Nikki's youth group passed them out as a fund raiser. Simple right? Well it turns out that the Chamber has more more phone books that they want passed out before they will pay them on ANY of the work. The thing is the phone books have not been printed yet!

So why can't they pay us on the ones that were passed out? Good question. I do know that there are a lot of mad moms out there, so the chamber of commerce better be prepared to handle us!

I am not going to stress over the money issue. Nikki has just started talking to more people and the money is coming in. Screw the chamber of commerce!

Anyway, today I need to get some things done around here. Nothing to major, so I am going to get that stuff done and then try to work on some sewing.

The other day I sat down to sew that dog bed and man the directions suck! I know I was reading the English side of the instructions, but I swear you could have been speaking Greek to me. I have been looking at the picture and I think I have figured it out. keep word there is THINK! LOL

Last night Amber had to write a poem for her English class. So she wrote the poem about me. Amber used words like strong, inspirational, funny, a rock to lean on. I was so shock that she thought of me that way. I was very impressed.

Well, it looks like it is going to be a nice day outside, so I am going to go enjoy it!

Sounds like the Chamber needs to hear from some of those angry moms and kids.  What a mess.

Hi Kelli ~ What that Chamber of Commerce did is terrible!  Especially to do something like that where kids are concerned.  Maybe you could contact the governor or attorney general.  I'm not kidding!

Sounds like it's time for that Chamber of Commerce to get a little bad publicity.  Perhaps a call to a local reporter??  You obviously are a very special Mom, so you shouldn't be surprised about Amber's poem; just bask in the adulation!

You are a rock.  So you see?  When you are hard on them...it doesn't hurt at all.  They know in the long run that hard rock MOM is solid rock Mom and  is really on their side.  Good going to a good MOM.
