Stress

My VOLUNTEER position as a co-director at Emily's school has been stressing me lately. My partner is driving me batty. We are such opposites that I find it difficult to work with her. She seems to oppose everything, like it is a reflex. I know deep inside she has good intentions for the school. Emily most likely will remain in preschool another year, being a fall baby. So I would consider doing this job again. But I don't think I can do it with her. I sometimes worry that she could find this blog and read it. But I need to vent. I've tried so hard, to make it work. For the most part we've (or should I say I) learned each other's ways. I am a rule follower and believe other people should be as well. I am an easy going person and can go with the flow, but when it comes to running a business I believe going with the flow isn't always the best policy. Thank you for listening. I just needed to vent a bit. There are only a few months left before we have to decide who will be on the executive board next year. Can I survive??

**UPDATE**
One thing that drives me crazy about here is scheduling a time to do something. I am usually the flexible one. It always about what works for her timing wise. She just called to try and reschedule a meeting and wanted to have me meet with her and take Emily along. I am so like NO, Emily is always going to these meetings. I am not taking her to a meeting tonight with 5 adults-3 of which are her teachers- how productive would that be. UGH. Not sure why this is bothering me so much lately. Hoping it is PMS.

Have a big glass of wine and take a deep breath!
On a serious note, it does feel good to vent and get things of your chest.
Hope you are feeling a bit better now.

Can you broach the subject with her? Maybe she doesn't realize she is being so difficult? It might be GOOD to bring it to her attention!
