They’re Home Again

The kids have a four day weekend. I’m not sure why the school does this, but they start on the Monday before Labor Day, go for four days and get four days off. Maybe it’s the district’s way of easing them into school.

You may find this hard to believe after I rejoiced and sang praises and danced in the streets, but I’m really glad they had today off. It could be that I missed them while they were at school and I’m just so happy to have them here with me. Or it could be that I’m tired of getting up so early and welcomed a day to sleep in.

But the real reason I’m ecstatic they have today off is because we’re hosting wine club tomorrow night and I need some slave labor to clean the house!

What? Is that so wrong??

    Nothing wrong with a wine club at all. 🙂

    It is always good for kids to do chores. Builds characters. Makes them independent. That’s what I tell my kids anyway. 🙂

    LOL – hey, it will make them want to get back to school that much quicker. Have a good holiday weekend, Jen!

    Having kids clean house? Pffff…it’s the least they can do for all the messing up that they, (read Jericho and Judah), do to it!

    Slave labor is an Excellent thing!!I was reading your treatment notes. Funny. My dr. just changed me from Femara to Arimidex to try to relieve hot flashes!! I’ll have to watch the joint stiffness. Sure don’t need more of that!!!

    I thought that was the reason people had kids. 🙂 Have fun at the wine party!

    Read that. Laughed out loud. Read that out loud to husband and teenage daughter. Watched teenaged daughter roll her eyes because it sounded so familiar to her. Laughed out loud some more.
