I wasn't upset about this at all. Her husband is a decent enough guy, but she had no business being FRG leader. I think she just got drug into it because her husband was the CC. Then we got an email saying, "CPT New Guy is asking for volunteers for FRG leader." Greeeaaat.
This week, we got an email stating that one of Joe's NCO's wives (did you follow that?!) was taking over the FRG. Thank goodness! I was glad that she was taking it because she had been the secretary or something before. Our former FRG leader had ZERO experience with the Army, let alone the FRG. (Not that I had/have any either.) Plus, she works a full-time job as a nurse. Not exactly the ideal FRG leader. Anyway.
Today, the new FRG leader friend requested me on FB and then added me to the company group she created. And then began the onslaught of "can you help out?" messages. It's not that I don't want to help them. It's more like I offered my help when the CC's wife took over and she never told me what she needed. Now I'm volunteering at the museum 3 days a week (for 3 hours) and I'm the advertising person for the spouses' club on post. That's kind of a lot! It may not be a full time job, but I really do feel like I'm busy. Then I got this message from the new FRG leader:
"my husband suggested that I ask if you would like to take the co-leader position. He has had a lot of good things to say about both you and your husband."
Now the question is this: Do I step up and volunteer so it makes my husband look good - even though I've got a lot on my plate as it is?
I don't know. Supposedly, it's not that much work. Just 2 - 10 hours a week and filling in at meetings when necessary. That's it. =/ I did sign up to support my husband in his new career. I said I'd stand behind his decision and support him all the way, in everything. Is this one of those times? Is this one of the things I'm supposed to do to support him and hopefully help his career? It would definitely look good for him if I were co-leader of the FRG. He doesn't get any promotion points or anything from it, but we all know that these types of things make a Soldier look good. Plus, if he does decide to go officer (which will definitely happen if he decides to stay in the Army) I'll probably need the experience with FRG.
So, what do you think? Should I give up a day a week at the museum to support my husband's career and take the co-leader spot in the FRG?
In other news, because I was feeling crummy today [and didn't get to have dinner with the girls] I got to stay home and watch the Sooners play. Unfortunately, they made my crumminess worse by losing to Mizzou. *sigh* It could have been worse, though. At least we didn't lose to Iowa State
