What do you mean my kids are out of school again? We just went back on Monday and now they are out again? WTF is that all about? I have things to do, laundry to wash, floors to clean, bridges to walk...... I can't be having to step over 3 kids under foot moaning about, "MOM! I'm bored!" I just can't. It has to be grounds for munchkin homicide!!!
No, really though, why are we having more time off right after winter break? I would think the conventional wisdom of the educational system would be to have the kids in for as many days as possible. I even got a note from Juniors teacher saying he missed a few more days of school than she was comfortable with and to try to keep him in school more during the spring semester. (Some of these missed days were because of her not heeding my warning about Junior sitting next to other sick children. He caught all manner of plagues!) So with these lofty goals in mind, I am at a loss for why we are not sending our progeny into the school tomorrow.
So I get up and look at the school calendar I have on the fridge and I see the little date circled and I check the key to see what it says the day is significant for. It is "Professionals" day. Hrmmm..... They are taking the day off to celebrate being professional. If they were a little more professional, they'd be in school teaching my children so I can go out and get a decent pedicure, or at least clean the house and put it in some semblance of order! It is bad enough that HHH is home with a bum ankle, but now I have 3 other, smaller humans who are all, "MOM! I'm hungry!", "MOM! She won't die so I can play!!", "MOM! I don't wanna do chores!". Hmph! Stupid school.
So that's all I got for today. I'll be walking the bridge w/Ms. M cause HHH will be watching all the kids. See... I knew he'd come in handy!
