As the count down for girl scouts is on and I am very VERY excited someone tried to burst my bubble last night. Youngest went on an overnight last week end. I couldn't make it as it was last minute and I was going to the art gallery. Youngest had a great time. Only three of the ten girls from her troop showed up. The leader last night says to me that she thinks she has youngest talked into coming back next year. NOOOOOOOO!!!! That is not a good thing. Uugh! Youngest has not said a word though so we will see.
I gave my notice to the fire department that I would not be signing over. I volunteer the next town over as treasurer and coffee maker. I am tired. The dynamics of the group has changed dramatically and it is time to move on. Ten years is enough.
My hubby is now deputy(assistant) chief in our town. I used to serve as treasurer for our fire district. Last night was our annual meeting and after a lot of thought I decided to run for secretary. I won by 1 vote. I believe it came as a huge shock to the current secretary. The look on his face when he realized his position was being challenged. This committee meets once a month. This move was motivated by several things - to get me back into the town fire scene, to see friends I don't see nearly as much, politics and this is a paid position. It doesn't pay much but a few extra bucks from a job in town will be nice.
I can put in more hours at work but, an hour commute one way - I'd rather not.
