The (un)ususal holiday weekend

The Boss Lady works in a different school district than the one that The Talker attends. And the two systems don't often agree on calendars. The biggies, like Spring Break in March and Christmas Break usually match up, but the other, smaller holidays often don't.

Tonight was one of those rare Sunday nights followed by a Monday off of school for The Talker and The Boss Lady. The Princess and I are always home on Mondays since her school is only a 4 day a week program. So we all stayed up late and partied like rock stars in our backyard.

We strung some half working leftover Christmas lights over the playscape and lit a fire on the patio. Some friends stopped by and the kids had a great time in their night time fantasy land.

And tomorrow we are carrying on the festivities by giving the dog a bath.

Like rock stars, I tell ya. Really old, boring rock stars.

Wow, that sounds like a really good time.

Our kids are out of school too, and we had a "Kung Fu Panda" Family Moivie Night (We still had not seen it - Waiting for a night the whole family was present).

A fire pit night sounds so good right now... Thhat's the "Cabin Fever" talkin'...
