Oh Joy. The kids are out of school for a week. It’s day one and I’m already exhausted and my ears hurt.
Let me tell you why. I currently have eldest spawn one in the garage playing guitar. My computer is on the other side of the garage wall. He is an fucktastic guitar player, but he is incapable of playing at a normal decibel, so my walls are shaking. It’s not horrible when he is playing his regular music (thank God, he plays classic rock, so I love his taste), but the vibrations that run through my house as he plays are a little crazy. Right now, he is playing with effects pedals, so it sounds like I have whale song throughout my house.
From the other direction is my youngest spawn playing Modern Warfare with 2 of his friends. So I have whale song, vibrations, bombs and boys.
And this is only day one.
I need a drink.
Plus, since the hubs and I work at home, we tend to “work on each other” when the kids are at school. Being quiet and secretive is nowhere’s near as much fun.
Then there is the food. A week with kids and friends (boys) popping by all week means lots of crap in the house. Also, we have Passover (OK, that’s not too bad, Passover food isn’t anything great) and Easter. My husband fills those baskets with every kind of chocolate he can find. Guess who eats it? Me.
Maybe I need a few drinks. It’s 5:00 somewhere, right?
How are you spending your break?
