I am the ward party princess, a calling I don't love.
In July we had a breakfast/bike parade planned for the fourth. Unfortunately there was a scheduling mishap and another ward had the same plan. We both found out about it on Sunday, the fourth being a Tuesday. Well I worked with the other activities chairman and it turned out okay, not great, but not bad.
As a result we wanted to check our dates for the rest of the year and make sure we wouldn't have any more conflicts.
Well, that resulted in several e-mails back and forth, giving dates and times and places and information. I was asked for more details several times (which was new to me) but kept giving it.
Finally we got an e-mail for the building coordinator in BIG RED LETTERS asking for more specifics on the dates we wanted. And I wrote a smartmouthly reply to David (who is in our ward and working with me on this) but accidentally sent it to Sis. H. YIKES!
this is what I wrote to David, but sent to her.
My goodness but she’s a bit of a pain in the neck. We need all the room, we don’t want anyone else in the building during that time. Just kidding.
Let me think for a minute and I’ll send you a reply with rooms needed.
Is our conference pot luck okay because I need to start advertising that.
Thanks so much!!
this is what she sent back to me.

This way the proper persons our kept informed. I will get back to Bro M as to the request made. I have already confirmed some of them
then I wrote this, with a very red face and feeling ridiculous for not checking and mean for saying it in the first place.
I am mortified, I am SOOOO sorry. I thought I was sending this to David, and we joke all the time. I didn’t mean anything by it. I am just trying to get our dates set up and it seems to be taking a bit of time and being a little difficult. We had that big mix up at our last activity and everyone is just trying to get things lined up without mishap for the future.
Again I am really really sorry!!
she nicely wrote back today:
Yes i understand. That is the bad thing about emails because they can so easily be forwarded.I try to have a protocol just to keep things all straight. And even I have my mistakes
lesson: don't say anything mean and
double check when you send out an email.
