Sometimes don't you just want to say F*CK IT!

Last night was one of those times but I held it in and just accepted that this is the way it is!  I'm talking about my kids school.  We had a parent meeting last night and let me see there were 8 parents (3 of us are speakers) the rest was teachers, admin, and other speakers.  We have about 170 families in the school.  We sent out emails, posted on facebook, our yahoo group, told parents face to face, and flyers.  I know (I've heard it many times) it happens at every school, I get that people are busy but I feel like damn do these parents care what is happening at the school and don't they want to know how they can make it better.  They sure do bitch enough to me that's for sure but are they there when we can actually get something accomplished. 

I spend several hours a week on school/parent stuff that I feel its like a freakin full-time job.  I'm trying to reach out, give information, and do what other parents except for the parent leaders but damn this is too stressful! 

I was very discouraged and almost started to cry when I had to talk last night because I felt I was wasting my family time being there last night.  I have better things to do with my time too PEOPLE!  But I'm committed to our school and want it to be a school where our kids can be proud to go.  I feel this past year I've been hit with wall after wall and geez Pam how many bumps in the head do I need to take before I say F**K IT! 

Sorry to be Debbie Downer today but I'm frustrated.  The good thing about this is the ladies that are on the board with me don't take it as personal as I do and they keep me going.  I'm an emotional person and take things way too serious and personal.  So I will sulk today and be right back on track.

The volunteer work you are doing does make a huge difference, even if you cannot see that now. I was on PTA boards for three years and it is truly a thankless job, but at the end of the day...after all the frustration...I knew I was doing it for the kids, and that was something very special! Hang in there!
