Don't get me wrong, they are a wonderful group of people to be associated with. All talented and supportive of each other. It's just . . . well - the responsibility was starting to wear on me. Getting to the meetings early to set up, deciding on the agenda, making sure I reserved the room we use at the library which entailed me staying up until midnight every six months so I could get our e-mail request in a minute after midnight (I'm not a late night person). Signing up volunteers for projects, making sure we had speakers lined up and writing the president message for the newsletter each month. Not to mention the occasional problem that would crop up.
Good luck to my successor. I, for one, am going to enjoy my freedom. Our meeting is tomorrow and I may not get there before it starts. I'll just slip in and have a seat anywhere I want. And talk out of turn. Take a nap if I so desire.
Now if I could get somebody to take over the treasurer position I volunteered for with my other group, Ozarks Romance Authors. http://ozarks-romance-authors.com/
Maybe I'm a glutton for punishment.
