Oh, you ladies are just so darn smart, telling me to knock on wood after I declared this would be a “normal week.” I am kind of wishing I had!
Tuesday morning, I got out of bed, bent over to pick something up, and wrenched something in my back. So, while I’ve still been making good on portions of my to-do list, anything that involves lifting or bending in any way has posed a bit of a problem.
So, no, not very normal. Good grief.
And then Eamonn came home today and asked me if he was going to work with Neil for Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day. We’ve never done it before, so I didn’t even know it was that time of year, but his teacher had mentioned it and he was excited about the prospect.
After discussing the pros and cons of the whole thing with Neil, including the BIG con of potentially having the Bicker Brothers show up for duty in his small cubicle, Neil said this was fine with him, but only one kid was invited. Eamonn, being the first to have asked, got the honor, and will be spending the day watching Neil do things with SQL. (*yawn*)
Hey, I think programming with SQL can be fun, but watching it? not so much.
And that leaves Aidan. Aidan is going to be going to work with me. Except I usually don’t leave the house for my job. I don’t want this to just turn into an aimless day off from school for dear Boring Office Guy, so I’m putting the boy to work. Finding and posting the day’s crafty links on Sulia? His job. I plan to teach him how to properly sand crochet hook handles, too. Maybe he’ll love it and I can outsource to him permanently. Wouldn’t that be great?
And then, not to ignore the home management aspect of my job, I’ll probably have him do a load of laundry and unload the dishwasher, since I have been having a hard time with those things due to my back.
I was kind of skeptical about Put Your Kid to Work Day at first, but I have to admit, I’m coming around…
