The Laziest Over-Achiever around

I've decided that if I had to pick a title for myself that is what it would be. "The Laziest Over-Achiever." It has a nice ring to it if you ask me. Actually, I think I should write a book about it, except that I'm too lazy to do it, plus... I don't read.

This whole back to school time has been busy, too busy. It goes against everything us lazy people believe in. First we have back to school night, where somehow I ended up signing up for 2 committees and girls scouts. While there they also tell us about Parent/Teacher Orientation the following week (you mean I have to go back to the school?).

Luckily that is on Thursday, because on Tuesday I have New Scout Leader Orientation (Oh, did I forget to mention that on a whim I said I'd be the Assistant Daisy Troop Leader), Wednesday I have a Townhome Board meeting (because while I was sitting at home twiddling my lazy thumbs I decided that the lazy people of the townhomes needed some quality representation). Sooo that leaves Thursday open for my Orientation on how to be a Parent. I wish that they had this orientation when my children were born, I feel like it is several years past due.

Lately I've been feeling kind of guilty about calling myself lazy. I know that legally I am a card carrying member of the laziness club, but if I keep up this whole "volunteering to look cool" bit, I will have to drop out, I guess that really isn't a big deal though because us lazy people are too lazy to have meetings for our club.

Well, I guess I'm done rambling now, so I will go. But I thought I should put in a few disclaimers.

  • I started this post a few days ago, but was too lazy to post it, soo that's why the days with my meetings have come and gone.
  • I didn't have any pictures of me being lazy, because well... lazy people don't take pictures of that often, SO I thought that I would add in a few pictures that I have been too lazy to put on here before.

Two cute little girls, looking cute. Their hair was much cuter at the beginning of the night, but this was the end result.

You are certainly the most over achieving over achiever I know. Would you please cut it out? You're making the rest of us look bad. :P

No, I still think I'd consider myself Lazy, I've just had a momentary lapse in judgement.

I am the opposite. I have not volunteered for ANYTHING at school. And I decided that is totally okay. Someday I'll be room mom, but right now I'm just mom.
Have you done scouts before? This will be Julianna's second year as a Daisy and she really loves it. (I'm resisting the urge to sign up as a leader, because last year her leaders were nice but very disorganized.) I prefer to remain slacker mom.

I'm right there with you. Lazy can also sometimes be fun.

Holly, I grew up in scouts, and my mother was always volunteering for everything, so I think I was just assuming that it was what I'm suppossed to do, I obviously wasn't thinking too hard.

That is not the list of someone who is lazy. Sorry to bust your bubble.

The Wehrmeister's said...


But that is what makes me an Over-Achieving lazy person.

Jen, you could redeem yourself by not showing up to any of your meetings, or you could go & just not really help.
