You're the secretary? Um, yeah, you can't quite say you have retired from volunteering. ;)
I pushed my oldest to get his license as soon as possible so that I wouldn't have to shuttle everyone every place. However, he'll be heading off to college in a matter of months and the next-in-line has not bothered to complete driver's ed (official behind the wheel stuff) and take the test. I can see this becoming a big problem very soon, and yet my husband keeps looking at how much we are currently "saving" in insurance...

Recovering volunteer? funny Jenn!


5:45 before school practices?! Seriously? Who could focus on anything (especially teenagers) at that time?


5:45am was the time that marching band (color guard) practices started too. Oh my lord, was I glad when she could finally drive herself. 5 months until #2 can get her permit. If I let her live that long.

What's the opposite of compulsive volunteering? Skipping most meetings, and when I absolutely have to attend something, scrunching down in the back so I'm not noticed? No, I'm not proud of it and I have no idea why I'm that way. I'm going to try and be more involved with the softball team next year. No, really.


Can someone ever recover from volunteering? I'm jumping back on the bandwagon with both feet! The group is lucky to have you!

Here-here for teenagers with drivers' licenses!
I feel your meeting pain. I sat through a mind-numbing one for Boy Scouts Monday and Doug sat through one for the athletic assoc. Wednesday. YAWN.

Smalltown Mom

Yes, it's wonderful when they can drive themselves!


That's my favorite part of meetings, too!


Growing up we all swam competitively - and got learners permits at FOURTEEN so we could drive ourselves to early AM practices!


Funny. Good to know I can look forward to side comments in many meetings to come. And no, secretary of the water polo association does not count as "recovering." (:

I have never understood the parents who dread their teens getting their license.

there are many activities today with teenagers that cost too much.
