Already Summer Vacation

Thanks to construction in the kids' school district. their summer vacation has already begun. Thirteen weeks of summer vacation, which is hard on parents' budgets, but nice for the kids.

I guess it really started on Saturday, but it didn't really hit me until today, when I didn't have to get the boys up for school before leaving for work.

Not that they slept in. The cat, Sukkie, slipped out of the door when Karen was letting the dog out, and so everybody was up trying to coax the cat in while I was trying to get out of the house for the long commute.

She eventually came back in, after I was already working.

Thomas is spending the night with us tonight. He joined us for dinner and brought along his laundry, so everything is fairly normal with the world.

My job ends in about two weeks, which is okay because day care expense shoot up when the kids have to go for the whole day, and so I'll be at home with them until I can find something new and, I hope, better.

Meanwhile, summer is underway. Should be interesting.
