Tomorrow I start vacation until after the first of the new year. Only, in will feel very little like a vacation since my duties will be trying to keep the house from being destroyed and small children in line.
There will be screaming from them and their parent – during the whole day, and sometimes even at night.
There will be endless cleaning up after people.
There will be a constant watchful eye on everything that is done because one is never sure if it will lead to disaster.
Truthfully, home is a dreaded place.
I know I could cancel my vacation days and just work and take them at another time next year, but I have told too many people what is coming and now not taking them will cause problems.
So, for the two weeks I will look for opportunities to hide, in the house and by leaving the house.
