Welcome to chaos! April is such a busy month for us. We have at least one birthday per day from the first through the 17 of the month. Then we have a few anniversaries and more birthdays during the last week of the month. I am already behind on sending out cards for this month.
We have our own party to plan for our daughters. Plus we have a scheduled sleepover with friends, three girl scout events to attend and spring cleaning. Oh! The joys of April. Anyone want snow for Easter? We have it, complete with rain and ice.
And did I mention that spring sports are starting soon? That means registration and parent meetings this month. And I also picked up a new volunteer position. Actually, I was told by the lady in charge that I am the new volunteer. Plus, my boss informed me that I have a limited time to complete a training and become certified for a new position. I never asked for a new position!
There seems to be several new events happening this month. Luckily, I like a good challenge. The volunteer position is one that I have previously held a few years ago. It will be nice to get involved again. It gave me the opportunity to spend more time with my daughters and the perfect excuse to spend time with a few of my mom friends. As for the new position, I have done it before. It has been at least 10 years since I last held the title, so I am nervous. There is so much to learn and get caught up on. Policies change over time. Lots of new things to learn. Honestly, I was not looking for a promotion. I did not apply to come back as a manager. My boss just surprised me with this decision last week. Still not sure how I feel about it. J- thinks it is a good thing and tells me not to worry so much about it.
How would you feel about being volunteered? Would you want a new position at work without being asked about it first?
