Ashley has a "field trip" on Thursday and by "field trip" I mean they are walking across the street from their school to a Lowes Food for a few hours. I signed up to chaperon the field trip as I try to help out as much as I can. I hadn't heard anything about it, and last night at book club, another Mom that has a daughter in Ashley's class said she was not chosen to chaperon since she volunteers in the class each week. I volunteer in Ashley's class on a monthly basis for their character education (basically, I go read a book to the class, but I get to interact with the class which is fun).
So I emailed Ashley's teacher this morning to see about the field trip, and she responded that I am not chaperoning. She is only taking 2 parents with her on the field trip, and since I volunteer in the class, I was not chosen. Now I have to tell Ashley that I won't be chaperoning, which she will understand, but still. Sucks.
Tomorrow is our monthly staff meeting at work. These meetings last about 2 hours and can drag on (what staff meeting doesn't?). In an effort to make it more entertaining I suppose, one of the vice presidents suggested a hat game, so we all drew names at the last meeting and are supposed to bring a hat for that person to wear at tomorrow's meeting. But in typical office politics fashion, I guess some individuals are upset about wearing a hat, so now we don't have to wear them, but just set them in front of us. Crazy.
