May 20th, 2010 marks frustratedpoolmom's 3rd anniversary of joining TFP!
FPM, as we like to call her, holds the distinction of being the board's second most prolific poster (our esteemed admin, JasonLion, holds the top spot). I can attest to her skill at managing the occasional fractious member as well. On a board that prides itself on providing a friendly and helpful environment, she is an example without peer.
(I would have said she's a "model" but she won't post a video of herself performing the famed "eggroll" solar cover folding technique! Ah, she also shows seemly modesty...)
Being a virtual community, it has been hard to come up with something to do that she'd appreciate (aside from taking this opportunity to make a fuss about her). Trivial as it might be, here it is:
I have been using the tag "BBB Advanced Beginner" in my sig for a while now, which is a reference to the old Red Cross swimming achievement levels (and incidentally the most advanced credential of its kind that I ever officially earned). A few weeks ago, FPM suggested that maybe I had progressed a teeny bit further than that. I was feeling particularly humbled that day so I didn't take the suggestion.
Dear FPM, today, in honor of your anniversary and at your prompting, I am promoting myself to "BBB Intermediate Swimmer."
