At a cold Starbucks sipping a cold Salted Caramel Mocha ( it didn’t start out that) working on XC (cross-country) paper work for the up coming meets. I am that parent you know the one who wrangles the volunteer parents, the one that send the annoying “hey we need help with…”. Yeah that is me, I did this last year for XC as well, but we where dealing with an illness in the family at the same time. If you where around last year then you had a front row seat to my world coming unhinged. If not you can go back and find the posts if you really want to know about. All this is to say that last year I was a bit preoccupied with live outside XC but did my best to make sure that they got what they needed for all the meets.
I think that there are a few parents who don’t like the way things were done last year without knowing what was going on in my world. I am not sure that I want to make sure they are all aware of what was going on. I don’t really know why I feel that I have to justify myself to them. Honestly it is none of their business, as far as I am concerned. I did what I said I would do, no it was over the top awesome with bells, whistle and fireworks, but every meet the kids had what they needed even if I could not be there.
I know it is all in my head and I have a crazy need to get approval from everyone. the rational side of me know that will never happen. You can’t make everyone happy, that is just something that will never happen.
Well thanks for letting me whine a bit here. I hope you have a great weekend.
