Re: I need my garden!

Kitty: It has been such a gray, yucky day here...good thing I had work
to do inside at church getting the place spiffed up for Palm Sunday
celebrations. That really helped my mood a great deal...decorating with
palms, ribbons, banners, etc. I have this really cool desert scene set
up in front of the church that is representative of Christ's 40 days of
temptation in the desert on his way to Jerusalem. The church is all
decked out now in beautiful crimson reds and shades of purple...I have a
group of kids doing all the readings, ushering, and bringing in of the
gifts for Holy communion tomorrow for the actual Palm Sunday service.
So, I've managed for a good several hours to forget about the problems
with the cookie money and focus on something positive and beautiful. Not
my garden but close enough.

Zem, I don't know Melody's exact position and what the chain
of<br>responsibility is, but as a far-out-there parallel, look at the
World.com<br>CEO, Ebbers or Eggers or something like that. He said he
wasn't aware of<br>what the accountants were doing. But he's in charge,
he's responsible. (And<br>in his case, I'm sure he did know)
Additionally, Melody may or may not be<br>technically responsible, but
it's obvious, she feels responsible for having<br>entrusted that
responisbility to this woman.<br><br>She has a mess on her hands and is
going to have to go over everything to<br>find the $700 - it's most
likely some sort of bookkeeping error. But when<br>all is recounted and
recalculated, if $700 is missing, it is that woman's<br>fault and she
should come up with it. If she won't, the girls are going to<br>have to
wash cars or do something to earn the money to pay off their
debt.<br>The Council is just going to have to wait for the money. The
point being,<br>it isn't Melody's fault, but it is a debt of the group
that must be paid.<br>If the one at fault won't fix it, the group, not
Melody, will have to pay<br>it. But still, Melody will be sitting under
that grey cloud, wishing she<br>could garden.<br><br>Kitty<br>-----

is resolving the discrepancy your problem? Seems to me
that<br>if<br>&gt; somebody is responsible for a job they are also
accountable for correcting<br>&gt; the mistakes. I was well passed
middle age before I could truly let go.<br>&gt; Life is much better
now.<br>&gt; zem<br>&gt; ----- Original Message ----- <br>&gt; From:

&gt; You guys know how just the oth

er day I was saying I wished I could get<br>&gt; &gt; away with doing
less sometimes and let other people take over doing some<br>&gt; &gt; of
the stuff I do? Well, my first real foray into delegating and
not<br>&gt; &gt; being so much of a control freak has been a complete
and utter<br>&gt; &gt; faillure!!!!!!! A couple of months ago it was
time for the annual Girl<br>&gt; &gt; Scout cookie sale and the job of
being a Troop Cookie Manager is huge!<br>&gt; &gt; Takes a lot of time
and energy. So when one of the moms practically<br>&gt; &gt; begged me
to let her take over doing this, I thought to myself &quot;I can
do<br>&gt; &gt; this...I can let this go...&quot; Oh my goodness...the
mess I am now left<br>&gt; &gt; trying to fix just makes me wonder what
in the heck I was thinking.<br>&gt; &gt; Somehow her collection efforts
have come up about $700 dollars<br>&gt; &gt; short...money our troop now
owes to the local girl scout council and<br>&gt; &gt; which was due to
them yesterday...a fact she only apprised me of at 8<br>&gt; &gt; a.m.
yesterday. Hmphhh...I am so stressed out ...I need my<br>&gt; &gt;
garden!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And it's icy cold and rainy here...times like
this<br>&gt; &gt; I could almost wish I lived someplace with no winter.
Aww,<br>&gt; &gt; anyway...thanks for listening...<br>&gt; &gt;<br>&gt;
