Hurry Up, Abe ... George is having a Global Teleconference

What is your opinion:

Presidents Day. Bank holiday. Hallmark holiday. Teacher holiday.

My opinion: Bank holiday, which has been taken and run with by the school systems.

Some schools are having classes today because they have used up all of their calamity days and are over. Not our school system. I have lost count, but I think we have used our allotted five.

So ... yet another day home with the kidlets. And I am extremely fortunate (yes ... you heard me ... FORTUNATE) to have this job where I can stay home with them. Now, don't ask me WHY the president of our organization has chosen today, of all days, to speak to us in a global teleconference. At noon.

What will be discussed? Only the president knows. Honestly, I think it will be a waste of my time. But I need to learn to respect authority better. I don't do well with it, and I teach my kids the same thing by living that kind of life. So I guess I should pay the respect that things deserve...

But still ... two things happening today that I think are unnecessary. And those two things will meet in the middle at noon. Luckily my phone will be on mute so they won't have to listen to my kids. But then again ... maybe I should take it off of mute and someone can keep saying "whose kids are those? That poor person has to WORK with those kids at home? She needs a 100 percent raise to be applied retroactively for five years."

One can dream, can't they?

Oh yeah.... and my first weigh in .... lost 3.9 pounds!!!!!

Yeah, I wish our school system would have used today to make up for a snow day. I think we're 2 days over.

Congrats on the weight loss. Woohoo! That is an excellent start.

Oh man, a conference at noon. Isn't that perfect timing? I mean, even if your kids weren't home and even if you worked in an office...noon? As in, when people get the heck out of the office to eat lunch? If it were me I'd MAYBE tape it for listening to later. You know kind of like DVR for telephone conferences.

No one messes with MY lunch hour...no one. LOL!

Weight loss, whoo-hoo! Congrats!

I think you should let them hear your kids in the background! They'll be thinking, wow, that woman is the epitome of multi-tasking! What's that? Do I hear her knitting too? Give her a raise!
