I am trying to avoid sending a snarly email to my sil, who is the sunday school co-ordinator. Me, I am the junior choir director. (director is kind of a fancy word for what I do, but whatever)

Last year there was no sunday school Christmas program, because sil didn't have the time, blah blah blah. Her thing was (last year anyways) that it would be nice if she could concentrate on the curriculum and organizing, and someone else could do the program. Last year I was moving and just had a baby, but I sent her an email yesterday offering to do the evening as a sunday school/junior choir, and I would organize. (I've done a few jr choir programs now, so I know how to go about it).

I just got a very wordy no, because they already have one song picked out . I know my sil, and I love her, her heart is in the right place, but she is not an organized person, and she has been so frustrated at the lack of help being offered. AAAAAAAGGHHHH, I am trying to make it easy for her.

LOL, in the course of typing this post I have typed 3 replies to her email, and erased them all. I am not being super rude, just a little snippy. I better sleep on this before I say anything. I will probably just call her so we can talk about it, so she can make me understand her point of view better. That just sounded much nicer than I am feeling right now.

It frustrates me when people decline help when it's being offered.

Man, this may be wrong-thinking on my part, but if she wants to do it by herself so bad, then let her do it! I think that's what I would do. Once she does it and sees how much work goes into it, she will probably surely ask for help next year! I'm not saying you should say it snotty or anything.....just, "okay, let me know if I can do anything to help you "

Ugh, sounds so frusterating. Sorry.

I agree with sleeping on it to cool down, our good Lord knows I should have done that many times in the past.

Also, I agree with letting SIL do it. Call her up and tell her you are there for her if she needs anything at all.

Then, surrender your frusteration and move forward from there.

I am glad I vented in here. I just replied to her now, in a very calm tone. Whatever, we'll see what happens.
