    This is the first Monday of summer vacation for the following people in my life:

    1. My wife
    2. My sister and brother-in-law
    3. 90% of my friends
    All of whom are either teachers or band directors. I'm already starting to get the annual TAUNTING texts from my friends of them sitting by the pool/lake/beach, drink in hand, etc. And here I am at work. Why must they torture me on this day every year?

    But seriously, enjoy your summer, all you CF teachers. You've earned it. Just please....have a little compassion for those of us who are working today like any other day....

    TIA

    LOL. Not teaching right now, it's true, and I'm loving it. Spending all day working on my book and hanging out with the dog. God but I can get a buttload of work done when I'm not actually at the office.

    you should quit your job and then rack up unemployment while making her the breadwinner for the whole family. That'll show her not to taunt.

    but in six weeks they'll go back to dealing with the unruly kids for 8 hours/day and get to take their work home for another 3 hours.

    Man, sorry about your wife. Only a matter of time before she sleeps with one of her students. I think it's like 94% certain isn't it?

    This makes me sad.

    I'm dating an engineer right now, and I'm tempted to knock her up and pursue the stay at home dad life.

    It's really unfair to the kids because they are using pens that don't use company ink. Lol

    Easy solution - go teach. :D

    Today I snorkeld, kayaked, laid on dead mans beach and now we're having lunch. A whole week in the BVI does not suck at all.
