Having the kids back in school has really increased my productivity. No longer do I have to let weeks worth of Keeping Up With the Kardashians build up on my DVR because the kids are home and therefore my daytime TV watching hours are gone. I am officially caught up on all of my back issues of US Weekly (did y’all know that Brad and Angelina finally tied the knot??!!) because I don’t have to spend my days playing 8,700 games of UNO.
With Lisa back (as long as I don’t mind her sans pants), the old blog is finally dusted off and we are able to get some real work done.
We had one of our first “blog meetings” in a while on Thursday.
Lisa: So, what is your schedule like for next week? Can we get together Monday and do that awesome post we have been talking about?
Ashley: Monday is out because the kids don’t have school.
Lisa: No, you are thinking of 2 weeks from now when they are out for school conferences.
Ashley: Yeah, they are out then, too. But they are also out on Monday for Fall Break.
Lisa: I had absolutely no idea! That certainly would have made Monday awkward when I pulled up to an empty school for drop-off.
We both decided that it made perfect sense for them to have a break, what with them being in school for 8 weeks already. Phew. That is a lot of learning. Time to kick back and relax for a well deserved break!
We totally complained to each other for an hour on the phone about how these random days off really are a buzzkill…FOR US.
