Sweetheart G and Little e's school doesn't have an art teacher. The art curriculum is created and taught by parent volunteers. I worked in that program for the past three years, but know what? I didn't go to the organizational meeting today... I'm letting it go. I am a room parent for both of the girls classes, I am in the midst of organizing the book fair, I have plans to do an art project with all four (4!) kindergarten classes (this is separate from the Parent Lead Art Program), and I just don't want to sign up for any more. Instead of hearing the plan for this year, I sat in the bakery, drank coffee, wrote up my To Do lists for Book Fair, and planned my day. Then I did the grocery shopping. I have plans to get some sewing done, to make pasties for Big E's lunch, and to do some more phone work for the book fair.
Do I feel guilty? No, not really. Sometimes you have to say "no", and this is one of those times.
