My three year old is in preschool and loves it. He goes two days a week for two hours. It costs me $45/month. We are what you call a low income family, I am a single mother of two and there is no child support, so what I make is what we have. My problem is this, the preschool parent board makes demands that I find ridiculous. Besides the fees we are expected to do fundraising to pay for things like feild trips. I understand this but at the same time I have a major problem with it. They are planning a steak nite and tickets are $12 each to quote them..each family is expected to buy at least 2 tickets for the dinner, those who cannot attend due to extenuating circumstances are to make a $30 "donation" to the school. Each family "must also bring a prize" for the dinner as well for door prizes etc. I have no one to take to a dinner for my kids preschool so why should I have to pay for 2? or an extra 6 for not going? Besides the dinner cost I would have to pay a sitter to take care of two kids. This dinner would easily be a $50 meal! I volunteer as much as I can at the school and feel their demands are insulting and demeaning. They have also just added a new fee if you pay your monthly fees in cash you must now add an extra $5! This doesn't affect me as I pay with checks. Am I wrong to think these parents are being to bossy and demanding? I feel that they only want those of a hire income bracket to have kids at this school. The funny thing is, it isn't even on the "well to do" side of the city. So should I write a letter to these people stating my concerns of just try to suck it up and go without a few things so that no one will know how little money we have?

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
