In an effort to save a little money, we took Moose and Squirrel out of daycare for the month of December. My company TopFive shuts down for two weeks at the end of the year so by WFH the last working week of December, we can save a good chunk of change.
So far it has been a rough go because this week I happen to be on a work assignment with our offshore group in Mambi. They can only work with me from 8 to 12 CST and that is when the kids are most feisty. I really should have moved my laptop down to the basement for some of the calls.
This is basically a beta test of whether I can get enough work done to see if we can change to a part time Daycare or not. We really like the one we have but there are less expensive ones closer to home. Close enough to walk to which means my mom could drop off and/or pick up the kids and remove that stressful burden from Nightingale.
When I WFH sans kids, I usually get a few things done around the house. With kids I get one task completed each day. They want to be constantly held and if you leave their vicinity they get upset.
Monday was fixing the broken handle on the upstairs toilet. This broken handle caused a few cascading problems such as me breaking a glass container and also the toilet flooding and causing a plaster/drywall seam to split in our dining room ceiling.
Tuesday was laundry and today my goal is to organize that garage wall I put together back in May.
