Tonight I handed over the key
And the books
And the registration forms
And the sashes
And began phasing out

I've been thinking hard about my little Girl Scout Troop, and the sad sorry truth is - I can't do it any more. Full time employment plus living an hour away is too much. And so I'm phasing out of this little unorthodox troop.

It makes me sad.
I don't want to leave
I like my girls

BUT . . . I made a six month comittment to this troop TWO YEARS AGO - and it's silly to drive an hour for a GS meeting (and then drive home). I need to find something closer to my place.

I've comitted to four more meetings with the hope that we can find a new leader in the next month or so.
