Well, the year is beginning to start. All the committees I am on voted in their chairs and work plans are coming into place.
I love to volunteer. I always fee inspired when I am doing the work weather the work is politicized or hard labour. I really feel alive.
I love the opportunity to spend time with my neighbours whom I would not normally see and meet people I would not normally meet.
Most importantly, I love conversations that have nothing to do with Monster High or Bone books!
I live in a neighbourhood that is filled with committees that help keep our neighbourhood safe, beautiful, growing and running properly. Escapism in the form of volunteering is readily available to me.
I just realized when doing my calendar how many committees I am on.
On each committee there are monthly meetings to attend: the first Monday of the month or the second Tuesday or the Third Wednesday.
Some of the committees are very sweet and the meetings take all of 5 minutes.
Though my kids think they take 30.
That is because myself and the other moms and grand-moms sit around the table and chit chat for the other 25 minutes. Sometimes we lose track of time and the hubby and kiddo’s think it was 40!
This week I had a meeting on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and tonight – Thursday.
I had a great week!
How was your week?
