The End Is Near, The PROM Cometh!

One week and counting!  
Next weekend is the prom for my little Diva.  We have the $65.00 ticket (Yes, you read it correctly….$65.00, SIXTY FIVE DOLLARS!).  We have the prom dress!  With the perfect little bag to match!  We have the after Prom “alternate” party dress, because … you know….  She cannot wear the same dress all night.  ***rolls eyes*** We have the prom shoes!  We have gone to have this dress altered …TWICE, no I’m sorry make that THREE times!  The dress is now at the cleaners to make sure it is wrinkle free for the big day!
It is down to the wire now.  Lastly, we have to solidify manicure, pedicure, and hair.  We have the make-up woman on standby!  This has been an exhilarating (for her) experience, and a draining (for me) experience, and frankly, I will be glad when it is overHOWEVER, the week after prom is graduation!  I am excited for her to be done with high school and heading for her next step.  I know that for many people the prom is a major milestone in life, but man the madness is out of control.  Lord have mercy, you need the right shoes, clothes, hair, accessories, and God forbid someone buys the same dress as you, then it’s going to be like Stephen King’s Carrie!  The level of preparation that goes into prom is madness!  I do not see why all the drama, but knowing what a DIVA my baby is I just have to roll with it!  I will of course post pictures of the big day!  I would think the prom should be about a last party and chance to hang out with friends, many of which will be going on to college, trade school, the military or whatever.  It should NOT be about the perfect look!  Nevertheless, whatever, it is what it is!
I am glad that the high school days are just about over, because frankly the educational system blows!  I totally applaud home schoolers!  She has been in 3 high schools.  1 in Rochester, New York, 1 in Arlington, Texas, and 1 in Fort Worth, Texas.  Let me tell you, I am more than ecstatic to be done with the public school system!
In the meantime, I am down to the last two classes for my degree (Yaaayyy!  Go Me!).  I am tired of school all the way across the board…
Stay tuned!  Next week is THE PROM!!!!!!!!

Senior year is the most exciting for our children, but the most expensive for parents.
I can't wait to see the pictures. I still have two years before I have to worry about finding the perfect dress.


Poor baby I'll pray for you. Be sure to take your vitamins. lol
