She's always so sunny and willing. She always figures it will be "an easy way" to get required volunteer hours in by being team manager.

Wrong. It is never easy. People never respond or do what they're supposed to. There are always special individuals who cannot seem to do their part.

Starting this fall, I'm just going to sign up to be score keeper twice a year - futsal and tournament. My Mother's Day is already ruined by being there all day anyway and I can go back to being blissfully unaware of all the negative details about team parents.

We haven't even had our first game and I already have my volunteer hours in for the season.

I try to keep the optimistic me on a very short leash.

I would print out this post and tuck it into your calendar for next year. :)
