fancy foods and funny hats

Eesh, it's been a week!  Let's recap:

It began last Friday with yet another end-of-winter-percussion-season potluck.  It was a nice intimate gathering at one of the other parents' houses.

On Sunday we had a fancy dinner with my Father-in-law and Stepmother-in-law for Meego, as it was Mother's Day/Meego's Birthday/Meego's graduation.  I had salmon.

On Monday, my friend Jan and I crashed an area high school Senior Awards Ceremony.  Remember Holly?  Our STAR scholarship recipient?  I finally got her certificate from International on Friday and learned that the school's ceremony was Monday evening.

Jan and I showed up and found out that it's relatively easy to crash a Senior Awards Ceremony as we were readily penciled in to the program.  The fun part of it was that Holly didn't know we'd be there and she was pleasantly surprised.  She sent me an email after the shindig thanking us for coming out and presenting her scholarship "at my school!" as seen in this horribly grainy shiny photo:

Tuesday was a  normally scheduled P.E.O. meeting - and another potluck as it was our chapter's 66th birthday.  I brought fried rice, mediocrely presented.

On Wednesday, this happened:

See Meego?  In blue?

His senioritis has been flaring up ever since he was accepted to his college of choice.  We needed to remind  him that he still needed to graduate high school, which he managed to do.

Wolfgang is currently traveling for work, so missed the photo ops.

Thursday, I did laundry and groceries...

Linking up with Mama Kat

You got all this from “fancy”? Musta been the laundry... ;)
What a fantastic week! Maybe a little busy, but all great stuff!
Congrats to Meego on his HS graduation!. I can vouch for the realness of senioritis. I have it myself, in a sense. If he can fight through it and finish, then I can too - but without the funny hat. :)

Most definitely the laundry.
Yeah, I feel the senioritis myself. How long until you "graduate"?

I hope around September, but it may be longer. I excelled my last quality check, and have very good guest surveys which will likely mean I don’t have another quality check this year, hence the “senioritis”. I feel like I’ve proven myself, so I’m ready to move on. Joplin and I aren’t getting along.... (Did I tell you my bike was stolen?). Sigh. That’s one of the many reasons I’m ready to be out of here...

WHAAAAAT?! Someone kidnapped Grace?! Joplin's on my sh*tlist now.
Sounds like you've passed your finals. Time to level up!

Thanks, it was a busy week, but all good stuff!
