Freedom!


I’m free!
I’m free!
I’m free!
Yesterday I was released from my job in the Relief Society Presidency!
Now comes the wait for the other shoe to drop. What will they ask me to do next?
Activities committee?
Homemaking committee?
*gasp* Cub Scouts?
We are in the final countdown to the end of school.
It is assumed at DH’s second job that he will be working full time.
But, 40 hours a week have it all over 80 hours a week, so there’s a chance I’ll see him now and then.
I am taking on the most ambitious task of planning a chore / reward chart for the children to see if I can get them to help out with little things like picking up their shoes, unloading the dishwasher, putting away their laundry and emptying the trash.
There’s a chance I’m going to have a better summer this year than I did last year.
Maybe I’ll put the Sagy paint (which has been sitting in two gallon containers in the corner of the living room) on the wall.
Maybe I’ll get to SLC and buy a pair of jeans.
Maybe the boys will get swimming lessons.
Maybe not.
But the possibility exists.

Yippee!!!!!!!!!!! I know the feeling. That is what I felt when they released me from Stake YW as secretary. It meant no more Girl's Camp!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Think of the one job that you really don't want (except for the one you were just released from) and that is what you are going to get. YW president.

Yes when my friend Teresa and I hinted to the bishop that we had been in the Primary presidency for 4+ years he made it clear we were not going anywhere. One week later we were BOTH in the stake president's office. Apparently we were going somewhere but not were we wanted. I have to admit my opinion of people who hold stake positions went down dramatically when I got called to one.
