SSSSHHHH....We're Playing Hookie!

We surprised W. this morning by letting him sleep in. I know it's only 8:00 am, that is sleeping in for him! We decided to let him take the day off from school and we are taking the troops to the boardwalk for some sun and fun.

Mr. Schmitty's hours have changed at work. Some upper authority figure needs to justify his job and is stirring the pot in different departments. Mr. Schmitty applied for the department he is in because he wanted to have better hours and he wanted to have holidays and weekends off to spend with his family. Now, out of nowhere the carpet has been pulled out from under his feet and he'll be working one of two shifts and 10-12 hour days. It's basically going to suck for all. He'll be exhausted and working then sleeping all the time. The kids and I will never see him. And I am going to LOSE.MY.MIND with the world's most stubborn hard-headed whiny adorable children.

So, that brings us to today. The weather is gorgeous. School is almost out so how much work could W. possibly miss? I've spoken to my neighbor who will have her daughter bring home his work.

The Schmittys need a family day before this crazy work schedule goes into affect.

I'm off now to slap on the sun block, pack some snacks and drinks for the car, oh and a DVD for the ride, and I gotta find my Dramamine! W. and I just L-O-V-E those roller coasters. I just don't like puking afterward.

Ciao!

My mom used to show up at school occassionally and pull me out part way through the day for a "doctor's appointment". We would go shopping and out to lunch and do all sorts of fun things together. I hope you guys have a wonderful time together today!
