I do not understand what is so difficult about organizing township sports. I understand that it's (most often) a volunteer position, so why not make it easy on yourself?
Post the general information-- basic schedule, age requirements, etc. Recruit coaches. Hold registration. Separate kids into teams. Distribute schedule. Done.
Seriously. It could be that easy! When you offer little to no info, change the age ranges after you collect money, and send short rude emails, do not expect full support or excitement from players and families.
(And to the friends who have heard me complain about this for the past week, I'm done now :))
I think I'm pretty organized and efficient. I know what things I can multi-task, and what needs my undivided attention. Some may say there's a method to my 'madness'. I'm a fast worker because of that.
Here's where that becomes a problem...
Gmail recently changed their messaging. It totally threw me off (and I still don't think it's an improvement). It's not that I can't learn new things, or that I'm technilogically-challenged, it's just that I have to literally reprogram my brain/fingers to click in a different sequence/pattern. It took me about two weeks to adapt.
And just when I did, Wegmans totally rearranged the store. These two things don't seem related, but they are. Stay with me, here.
I write my shopping list in shopping order. As we run out of bananas, it goes at the top of the list since produce is at the front of the store; powdered sugar goes at the bottom because baking supplies are at the end of my route, or at least they were. I went in last week and was greeted by a whole new set up. I walked in circles at least 3 times, despite the iPad-equipped employees who were directing traffic (at least I wasn't the only one). I hate wasting time!
So is there such thing as being too organized? Too rigid? Sadly, I think there is.
An aptly labeled memory/file box ;)
As the Lego collection increases, my Ziplock bag collection decreases.
Seriously, 188 pieces fit in a sandwich bag. Hardly seems worth buying individual bins. So bags it is!
Our township's baseball organization should not be allowed to be called an organization, due to the simple fact that they have no organization whatsoever.
I used to think Pinterest satisfied my OCD tendencies so nicely, but now that I've pinned more things, I want to be able to arrange the pins within each board. Also, it bugs me out when someone has dozens of boards! Haha, issues!!
I have a shoe box to get rid of. Does not sound like a big deal, right? But as soon as I throw it out, I'll get a note home from school requesting a shoe box for some sort of project and we won't have one. So I have to keep it. But where the hell do you keep an empty shoebox? Maybe I should just put the shoes back in and keep it in my closet till it's needed... #preschoolmomproblems
