Since December 21st I have worked exactly 2 days and 2 hours. By work, I mean my paying job as a reading specialist. Winter break began on the 22nd of December and lasted until January 2nd.
As it would go, the Bug contracted a virus so I stayed home with her on Monday and then worked Tuesday and Wednesday as the virus proceeded to travel from Bug to the RedHead to my Monkey. By Wednesday evening I was sick, but Thursday morning I decided to tough it out and head to work. 2 hours into the day I was completely sick so I came home and I'll spare you the details, but I was out of commission for the next 2 days. Mother Nature then came and blessed us with snow and ice so I've been at home with my babies now for several weeks. It's a flashback to last year when I stayed home...a very tempting flashback.
We've stayed in pjs till noon, snuggled, had playdates, and I've been able to keep my house (more or less) clean and cook lots of yummy food like Chocolate Sheet Cake and Creamy Corn Chowder. I really miss being a stay at home mommy. They may have to drag me back to work kicking and screaming!
