Yep, this is the week our schools take off so we can all sit around and think about how cold it is outside. The time off doesn't really apply to Son19 since the colleges keep right on having classes and his job keeps right on expecting him to show up. But the rest of us are getting a break in one way or another.
My wife took the opportunity to go visit her mom again - who just finished her second round of chemo and is slowly recovering.
I'm sleeping late, catching up on my Netflix movies, spending far too much time on the internet, and reading a lot. I know, I know...those of you who are working this week can just go ahead and hate me! :)
But no one knows how to celebrate a week off like Son16 and Daughter13. I have managed to convince them to shower and change clothes at least once since school ended last Friday. And they have eaten most meals. But if I really want to see Daughter13, I have to take the book out of her hands (she is totally hooked on the Guardians of Ga'hoole series) or try to find her over her DS.
Son16 will either be found building new robots and castles and anything else that comes to mind with Legos, or he'll be hiding behind his own DS.
The best way to tell them apart? By the games they play!
