Wait until you have teenagers who stay up all hours...

Needed something to do on Valentine's Day. Oh wait, I'm working that day.

Um, how about having your/his parents come over and sleep there for a night while you go to, I dunno, Disneyland and a hotel?

Just tell your mom, "Yeah, we'd really love you to come over because we want to try the Monkey Hangs from a Tree." When she responds, "Oh dear, I remember when your dad went through the sex-book-buying-phase of early fatherhood," run away from the phone before she gets into the details.

Oops, forgot to sign. That was me, TM from Jewlicious.

Sounds like I need to work for a major newspaper. The last book I got from MY employer was a book on the Rational Unified Process. This is not a recipe for wedded bliss:

ME: Honey, I brought a book home from work.
SHE: Should we send the kids to their friends' houses?
ME: Not yet. I have to create the use case diagrams.
SHE: (unhappily) Huh?
ME: Then I need to use an approved estimation process to determine how many resources need to be applied to the project.
SHE: (glumly) I was hoping that only two resources would be required.
ME: And of course, we need to monitor schedule slips and take corrective action if necessary. Honey? Do I hear Doc's voice on the TV?
DOC: Well I may just be a country doctor in the big city, but it looks to me like you're down and out about sumfin.

    ... but, y'know, it's kinda hectic. I blog when I can. Right now, my day's divided this way: keep kids from screaming (8 hrs); keep son from killing daughter (6 hrs); avoid diet (4 hrs); sleep (2 hrs); lay awake fretting (2 hrs); give up and Web surf for a while (1 hr); think about waking hubby for sex (1/2 hr); ponder my career options (15 mins); shudder, begin blog post (15 mins); resume efforts to keep kids from screaming ...
