I’m Mom’s (88) caregiver, mother to two teen-agers, and have an “almost-full-time” job. Oddly enough, that part of my life works well. My problem is the annual fall onslaught has begun inviting me to participate on committees, attend events—the list is endless. My answer to all is “no thank you” – I just need a better way to say it.

Try this: “Thank you for asking but I promised my family I’d refuse additional obligations this school year and spend more time at home. I’m happy to refer to you to (insert a name and phone number) who might be interested. All best wishes, Wendy.”
