My blogging, as well as my duties around the house and many personal commitments, have suffered in these past few months. I have been over-committed....way over......but I have loved all my projects and the people I have done them for and with. I have been honored to serve on the boards of several not-for-profit organizations as well as having been a hard working volunteer on a number of volunteer committees. My calendar and typical day are busier than when I "worked for a living," and upon getting yet another request to commit to a new "three year term" this week, I realized that something HAS to give....and I don't want that something to be me!!
So, there are decisions to be made. Some of them are going to be tough. I don't want anyone to feel I am letting him/her/them down. Some of the readers of this very blog are women I work with in the volunteer trenches, and I can imagine what you/they are thinking! All I can say is that for anything I am in charge of, I always make sure I am training someone to take my place....so I won't leave anyone in the lurch. Do not worry!!
Tonight I will get out my legal pad and favorite Elsa Peretti ball point pen, and approach this "old school" style. I am going to write down everything I do and what I am committed to in the future and start trimming where I can.
In the meantime, I commit to writing at least three times a week for The Classic Preppy!!
