And I Thought My Fat Cells Were Tenacious

Quitting the Youth Baseball Board of Directors at last night’s meeting didn’t go exactly as I had planned and, by that I mean; I totally got suckered into staying on the Board. I am resigning from the office of Secretary, however. Really, I am; just as soon as I find someone to replace me. Conservative estimates place the prospect of that happening anytime soon at around zero percent.

Gah.

In defense of my seeming inability to say no when asked to do unpleasant tasks, I will mention that; without the efforts of me and three other Board members, the baseball program would go away. That said; we all realize how imperative it is that we recruit some new blood onto the Board and, we are attempting just that. Unfortunately, it’s really hard to find people who are willing to volunteer their time.

People willing to bitch about the program, however; we got plenty.

Funny how that works, isn’t it?

Ok, enough bitching; how about I whine, instead?

Tomorrow is the first day of Lent and, as usual, I am giving up chocolate. However, in a surprising twist, I am also giving up candy in general. And, cookies. And donuts. And pretty much everything in the kitchen that makes life worth living. It’s going to be a challenge but, I can do it.

And, if the dedication I show to my religion has the additional benefit of finally shaving some of the fat off my ass well, then; what a happy happenstance.

Really, not diabolically and methodically planned at all. Not at all.
