Go to work and let them fend for themselves? We always have outings and friends that fillled the time!

Having older kids makes it different.

Thanks for the laugh Ramona!!! I didn't take any time off this holiday season. I wonder if that was intentional? :0) We've had company all this past week. Not directly at our house, but at the girls' Gma's house. Her son and his family came for Christmas. Their four and two year old are wearing me out and I barely see them. But school and college can not start fast enough. Unfortunately, college doesn't start back up till the end of January. SD19 is being a stink! She's being all. You can't tell me what to do and I can do whatever I want and just plain jerky! It's getting really old really fast! DH called her out last night and it got loud, but he didn't back down once. I was very proud of him!! We will see how the rest of the weekend goes.

I like my kids home as welll. With me working part time, dh working when he can and often a goofy schedule, the kids school, sports and the rest, having the holiday from the kid's activities is a break.
