So a few events yesterday totally broke the camels back regarding co- leading the choir and I just had it.
I am probably being over sensitive/over reacting... call it what you will, but it isn't worth my sanity so I told Father T that I didn't want to sing anymore.
Lets see... I have asked the other leader for the weekends he knows he will be away this summer like 4 times and he hasn't said anything yet! Sorry, but I as well as any piano player I need to find would like more than a weeks notice! Oh, lets not forget that there will be weekends when he will just take off.!!! *grrr* 2nd we are in charge of the inauguration mass in two weekends. We agreed that rehearsals needed to start like two weeks ago. Wait wait wait for him to let me know when he is free! COME ON! So finally I started spreding the word that regardless if he can make it, Thursday we will meet. Well, I emailed him yesterday to let him know and conveniently, he didn't get my email until after he emailed everyone in our choir (nevermind that it is supposed to be a combined choir) that they will get together tonight. Yeah, thats lots of notice!! (insert sarcasm here) THEN he casually tells me last night at the grade 8 grad Mass that he replaced Amazing Grace from the line up. HELLO!!! Do you think you can share that info with me??? (I still don't know what the new choice is) WTF!!! I have been telling musicians what we are playing and he hasn't given me the curtasy to let me know I have been handing out the wrong list???
It may not seem like much, but come on. He is NOT the only leader!! It isn't like I am 'vice' leader here. I am not only in charge when he is away. We are supposed to be a Team!! And he isn't a Team player! Anyway, after the Grad Mass last night, I told father that I quit and that I didn't want to sing anymore. I called him this morning to clarify and stupid me started crying again. (this would be the 2nd time I have literally cried to him) He understands my point of view and has encouraged me not to stop singing and that he and the Liturgy council want me to stay on board as Music Minister. (As a Co Music Minister, I make darn sure I am touching base with the other guy and include him!)
Anyway, thanks for the Rant!!!
