Volunteer less?

I guess I should change the name of this to something other than the life of a volunteer. I don’t volunteer nearly as much as I used to. I used to put in a minimum of 2,000 volunteer hours per year. I was a scout leader for two troops, a room  mom, PTA president, anything that needed to be done I would do. That changed when a group of moms got pushy.

So, now I concentrate on my family. Don’t get me wrong, I do volunteer but it’s more like 200-500 hours per year.

The most amazing part to me is that even with the reduction in volunteer hours my house is more of a mess than ever! How does that happen? I know, I got lazy. I got into the habit of tossing things in the corner when I ran into the house. I didn’t stay on the kids about things because we were constantly running to meetings or events.

This year will be about getting more done in less time. Can it be done? We’ll soon see! Wish me luck!
