I wrote a 'Six Word Story', and all you have to do is find my comment at the top of the comments in the contest and click 'like'. Easy peasy, and I'd be forever grateful. I submitted last night before I realized that it was the kind of thing you needed votes for. I doubt I'm going to get the 300+ votes I need in time, but I figured I'd try. Personally, I think my six word story is purdy powerful. Just sayin'.
Alright, so we all know I'm new to the whole spouse club-volunteer-thing. It's been less than three months since I even joined the club, and now not only am I Secretary, I keep volunteering myself for stuff. What's worse, is that it's not even jobs they ask for volunteers for. I am creating NEW jobs for myself. What does that mean? Well, for example, we were going over decorations for an upcoming event and we needed owls. We planned to buy some little statues, but somehow I mentioned that I can paint and the next thing you know, I was tasked with painting FOUR- five FOOT by four FOOT owls.
On top of that, I also volunteered my go to T-shirt company when they thought we couldn't get shirts made in time. This meant that I also had to wrangle up the orders and create the graphics within a 24 hour period to make it happen. Oh, and let's not forget the event 'passports' that have to be designed, because I didn't like the idea of a plain white piece of paper. So you see, I have no one to blame but myself.
I think you could say I work harder for free than when I was a real member of the work force. Whatevs, at least I'm keeping busy, I love painting, I'm the queen of tedious projects, and it really does feel good to volunteer. If only I could ditch the secretary duties, all would be great! J/K, but typing up these minutes every month may be the death of me. Well, that and the lovely Glucose test I'm taking this morning. No, I'm not pregnant, FYI. I've just had some blood sugar issues lately, and it's been a while since my sugar levels have been checked. Almost passing out a few times and blurry vision is starting to get really old. Wish me luck! Anyone that's had this test...I know you feel my pain.
