The Daily Dose: Mother's Day Disaster, Readers' Choice and Some Other Fun Stuff
It's the start of another week and we're almost halfway to the end of May. How will your Monday shape up?
Good morning and happy Monday, Waukee!
Moms, did you have a Happy Mother's Day? You may remember what my wish was for Mother's Day this year. Well, I didn't get that. On Sunday morning, my oldest developed some kind of nasty stomach bug and was sick pretty much all day. Not exactly how I was hoping to unwind. Maybe next year.
Still, the weekend wasn't a total loss. On Saturday, I took the kids to the Waukee Fire Association Pancake Breakfast and Food Drive where they were elated to to see all the inner workings of the Waukee Fire Station. I will admit, it was pretty cool getting to sit inside a fire truck. I'm kind of geeky like that.
Off the subject but did you catch the results of our "Best Place to Pamper Mom" contest? Wellness by Wicks claimed the title by just two votes. Crazy stuff. Remember to cast a vote for your favorite dentist in the next round of Patch's Raeders' Choice contest.
Speaking of contests, do you want a unique way to honor a loved one who's passed away? Enter your loved one in our Memorial Day contest and get in the running to win $500 for the charity of your choice.
If you're not busy tonight, you might consider attending the Waukee Board of Education's last meeting before the end of the 2011-12 school year. The meeting is at 7 p.m. at the Waukee Administration Office. The agenda can be found here.
Seriously, have you seen the forecast for the next couple days? I think I might be, um, *cough, cough*, out "sick" this week. Don't tell the bosses.
In case you missed it, here's the forecast for today and tomorrow. It's gorgeous, I tell 'ya. Gorgeous!
Monday: Sunny, with a high near 80. West southwest wind between 6 and 8 mph.
Monday Night: Mostly clear, with a low around 53. Southwest wind around 7 mph.
Tuesday: Sunny, with a high near 84. West southwest wind between 6 and 9 mph.
Tuesday Night: Mostly clear, with a low around 56. Southwest wind around 7 mph.
Whatever you do, Waukee, make this Monday a great start to your week! Happy Monday!
