    No Work for the Wicked

    I have been working my proverbial ass off lately (oh how I wish that was literally true). There is so much work to do that I spent many hours trying to focus on what needs to be done first. You know how you feel like you are never getting anything done? So irritating!

    I decided tonight at 6 pm that I'm taking tomorrow off. I'm not going to know what to do with myself. I may take the girls to see Pirates of the Carribean since we haven't seen it. It's supposed to rain so any outdoor stuff is out. Who knows, I may just stay in bed all day.

    The State of Michigan made a new law that states that public schools cannot begin before Labor Day. The tourism industry was missing out on two weeks of prime business.

    It was crazy because our school district, the fourth largest in Michigan, didn't know what they were going to do. There was no set schedule for the school year set until this summer. We didn't know when the kids would go back.

    Part of the problem is that because of teacher's contracts some schools could choose their starting dates until the contracts run out.

    This will mark the first time public schools have started after Labor Day since the early 80's. I always hated going back to school in the summer. We weren't allowed to wear shorts and there was no air conditioning. It totally sucked.

    So, tomorrow I will spend some quality time with my little chickadees before all hell breaks loose.

    Have a great time tomorrow. I have been so busy with school. It has been all work and no play. Well I made up for it by going to an almost rained out Lugnuts game (minor league baseball), drinking plenty of beer, meeting the spouse of someone that I work with (she is super and her spouse is every but as super),, meet a bunch of new people and drink more than a few beers. Ah, I needed that. Back to the grind for me tomorrow.

    You have a super day playing hooky tomorrow.

    I hardly ever take day's off during the week, but when I do I can always manage to have some fun.

    I used to be part of the minumum staffing level, but not any more. YAY Now it come's down to either me or my boss have to be there. We just check with each other first.

    Have fun and stay out of trouble. I know, come take me out to lunch.

    Manny said...

    Starting Monday I have to be at work by 7 and I will get off at 3:45. That's almost like having a day off.

    Manny said...

    I wish I could play hookie today.

    You're lucky!

    Manny said...

    Not me, I have to work. I'll have people in my face all day long just trying to drain the life right out of me.

    Manny said...

    I will have to send a few of them away because they will just want me to do their job, but I WILL NOT!

    I will ask them "Why have you brought this to me when your part isn't finished yet?" They will sulk and walk away.

    It's wierd having been promoted from with-in. I didn't feel sorry for them before and I certainly don't feel sorry for them now.

    Manny said...

    You can start your day by drinking coffee and reading all the laim comments I left you. LMAO

    Manny said...

    Please don't get mad, I'm just feeling playful.

    Manny said...

    It's Friday!!!!! I am doing my "happy Friday nekkid dance" right here and now in front of my puter.

    Manny said...

    I get to wear jeans and tennis shoes.

    Manny said...

    I hurt my right foot and it's all swollen so I will be able to wear tennis shoes for a few days anyway.

    My doctor gave me a slip that say's so.

    She also gave me some sweet pain pills.

    Manny said...

    When I was coming up we never started school before Labor day.

    If we had then I would have thought it sucked.

    Manny said...

    Nor did we get the day off just because someone famous farted.

    Manny said...

    OK I'm done now.

    Have a fantabulous day off!!!!!

    Laugh, play, joke.

    Go to wal mart, take a $10.00 item to the laway, and ask them how long you can keep it in there.

    Go to a jewelers and start humming the theme from 'mission impossible".

    Buy yourself a nice OSU Buckeye jersey.

    gab said...

    They did that here to..no school before labor day. Good idea I think. Oh wait that means they will be with me longer. LOL anyways enjoy your day off.

    Nonny said...

    I think it's dumb for any kids to go back before Labor day. It's totally senseless. We never started school before that when I was young.

    You totally deserve a day off. Pirate 2 is really good. Plus you get to watch Johnny for almost 3 hours!

    SignGurl said...

    BG~ You're such a good girl *pat, pat*

    Savage~ Sorry to hear about the rib. That sucks!

    Barman~ You party animal!

    Sass~ I'm glad for them too.

    Navel~ Did I ever tell you that I love a man that gives a girl what she wants?

    Manny x 13!~ Are you off your meds again? Why, oh why, would I buy an OSU shirt?

    Gab~ Good luck with the grandkids.

    Nonny~ I'm psyched for 2.5 hours of Johnny! Masterbation fodder, you know?
