Getting through.....I think


I am spun people.
So many blogs are updated, daily-weekly-monthly......mine remains updated WEAKLY. But whatever.

I need to stop getting involved in things....or something.
I am the Hockey Associations treasurer......may not sound like much, but last year I wrote over 700 checks......plus secured a large loan, the week after I became treasurer....and manage over $200, 000.00 Ahem

I was asked to join the YMCA Board.......their reasoning...."We really, really would like the input of a stay at home mom....." Which I of course translate to mean.....we really need someone to do all the work we don't want to......but I agreed anyhow.

I am the President of my son's Preschool Advisory Board. Which my children have explained to me that I am the Principal of the Preschool.....when I laughed that off......other people agreed with my children.

I teach a class at the YMCA for children age 3-5.....17 of them, we encourage excersize, and have fun and swim time, for two hours, twice a week.

I somehow agreed to watch a friend of mine's 4 year old every Thursday afternoon......though I do not remember agreeing to it, or any conversation which would indicate I would do it......but still, she has started dropping him off every Thursday afternoon. Love the kid, but really?

I agreed to teach in the area Elementary grades 3rd-5th, something called "Junior Achievement" to encourage children to embrace their community, and finance....or something. I got looped into that.............oh, a couple of people "highly recommended me" something....which I interpret as......she will do it, just call her.....she likes to have too much on her plate and stuff.
I do all this for free............unless there is somewhere I am supposed to be picking up a check, that somebody hasn't had a chance to tell me where that is........I will let you know if I hear.....

Oh yeah, and I was asked to be Sass's Assistant soccer coach.........yeah......I declined that one......I just can't run in high heels as quickly as I used to.
I need a nap.
*****out of control update***** just picked up the mail and I flipping got called for Grand Jury duty.....obligated to 12 months....you may be needed out of town.....are they kidding me!!?? Oh.....but they will pay me $4o a day....as if that will make my life work............

Eric and Hanna said...

Oh niece of mine, didn't i teach you anything? ha Your plate is beyond full... The more involved your are the more you are able to channel your boys for good. What a strong and capable woman you are. You could be president of the united states if you wanted to. I love you so much and am so pleased at all you do and are. So very independant and full of sass yourself. Remember yourself in all your busyness.
Auntie
