Today's Iranian New Year. I know this because our school is OFF for Iranian New Year! YAY IRANIAN NEW YEAR!
Now I have all three kids sitting home today even though I still have all of my usual work to do for Fashion Police. Yeah, this is going to be an interesting morning.
I figure I need to keep everyone busy so I can work...you know...on my Fashion Police posts - not Mommy Lite stuff...that would be procrastinating. And I want to do my work because I am REALLY liking it! Last week got to call Nicky Minaj a Hot Troll Doll. (This job really has "me" written all over it!)
I figure I'll ask all the kids to do their school work. That'll keep 'em busy.
Livi and Ben have a big book report due - so that works well for me. That could easily take up a couple of hours if I really milk it and force them to be neat and spell correctly.
Ben finished his report this morning while I slept in. Okay. It bought me an extra hour and a half.
Livi is less industrious. She's the queen of procrastination. She's sitting on the floor of the living room covered by a big green chenille blanket when I stumble upon her.
Me: "Livi. Do your work."
Livi: "I'm in hibernation."
Me: "Get out of hibernation and do your work."
Livi: "But I like hibernation."
Me: "But you can't stay in hibernation. Do your work."
Livi: "Maybe next winter..."
Who am I kidding? I'm not getting anything done today. Nicky,...it's your lucky day.
