Saying “No” … Epic FAIL

I just got back from a meeting at Burke and Maggie’s soon-to-be-school. It was a parent advisory committee meeting…where I’m pretty sure I volunteered to be on the board. I think “treasurer” may have been mentioned.

So much for something having to give, huh?

Here’s my thinking…I like being involved with the kids’ “stuff” without being in their faces…so being on the board of something that helps them out seems to satisfy this. It also helps me to figure out what’s going on behind the scenes. Like…I’m fairly certain that I wouldn’t have had any idea that a meteorologist came to their school last month if I hadn’t been a volunteer with the PTO there.

So…what’s going to give? Well…starting soon (next month??) I’ll no longer be the membership chair of my twins club. Go me, right? Well…I’m actually moving to the president position. (I know, I know…) I’m told that it’s actually an easier position. We’ll see 🙂

I’d love to say that my second job is still tiny and infrequent…but just about a week after I wrote that, it picked up. (Figures, right?) It’s still not that bad, and I enjoy the work…and the extra cash.

You’d think that since Burke and Maggie are changing schools that means I won’t have their preschool PTO stuff any more…except that Logan is starting school there in the Fall, so my guess is that I’ll probably continue with that. Luckily, it’s not a board position…it’s just an “I’m here!” type of thing.

I’m 100% sure that I will not be a Sunday school teacher again. Way too much pressure to be in front of people kids like that!!

My church women’s group meets monthly, but I’ve missed the past two because I was sick…so I don’t have much to report about that.

Oh, and I was asked to help start up a working mom’s online group. (Ya … guess what I said! oy…) I figure that it’s online. And it’s a mom’s group. And yes, I already belong to two (my town’s and my twins’ ones), but this one might serve different needs catering to other moms who also work, so perhaps playgroups would be when I could attend them (you know, in all my spare time LOL!) It’s still a baby, but it beginning to take off. And they’ve started a bunco group; I’m curious!

Okay…off to start another volunteer folder…

  1. I love doing all that stuff (or used to) – much more fun than working. But don’t forget you have a job too! Does this mean all your YOU time gets eaten up?

  2. Betcha still find time to read!!

  3. Oh you have a load going on – but I also like to be behind the scenes at the school.

  4. You definitely have a lot on your plate. I’m extremely impressed with how well you manage it all. Go you!
