One More Day

Today is Monday January 4th. Most people are returning to work today after the New Year's break. Most kids are returning to school today after a long winter break.

Not my kids. They are off from school again today. Not for snow. It was a scheduled day off. I can't answer "why?" I think it's a cruel joke by the school.

One more day and things will be back to "normal."

i'm in the same boat. our teachers are at school for a work day. i wonder what would happen if i dropped my kids off and sped away before anyone could stop me. because i've just about had it with the bicker twins.

I know one lady who is going to be celebrating TOMORROW--once the kids are back in school.... ha

Happy January, Cookie.
Hugs,
Betsy

Mine, too. But it's the college kids that are the most annoying--and they don't go back for WEEKS.

I want my house back. Who do I have to see for that?

Oy. I'm so sorry. My little one went back to preschool today.

I nearly didn't know what to do with myself in all the silence :) Hope the same happens for you tomorrow!

Mama Zen said...

Mine went back today (visualize my happy dance).

Hang in there!

Oh jeez... I hear you! Guess what day our School Board chooses for the first day of school? Give up?

FRIDAY!

Oy. Makes no sense at all.

Talon said...

Oh, no! That's insane! Or it's a conspiracy by severely hungover educators who need an extra day of recoup time.

I bet your counting the minutes now, Cookie!

And then it will finally be a Break for Cookie. Enjoy. :)

I read these comments and just laugh to myself because mine are grown, but wait a minute, our poor parents were so anxious to get their kids back to school and we had a terrible snow storm. No school and another storm on Wednesday. I am sure no school, I am sure it is really difficult to get sitters sometimes isn't it, for working mothers?

Mine have had 3 weeks off and go back tomorrow. Now I just have to get rid of my partner as well. Any suggestions?

Michelle said...

OH that IS a cruel joke. I'm so sorry. I actually wasn't happy to see them go, but more because that also meant I was back to my work schedule :) Enjo tomorrow!

What was the point of having that extra day off? Seriously.
