The Hidden Dangers of Being A Teacher

Having summers off is great, right?

Maybe, maybe not.

Being a teacher with endless hours of *free* time all summer long is great. That is unless your wife has the opportunity to spend endless hours browsing the internet and finds this post. Then she remembers that you happen to have 20 feet of unused vinyl rain gutters sitting in your basement.

24 hours later you are cutting, sanding, leveling, and installing new shelves in the kids' rooms.

All while wearing you wife's "Breastfeeding Does a World of Good" t-shirt.

This is, of course, 12 hours after you had to move the digital antenna cable to a different place on the roof and then move the line (which involved drilling holes in the side of the house) because your wife thought it would be a good idea to rearrange the living room.

And if that's not enough, while you are completing said projects, your wife is sitting at the computer again.

Blogging about all of it.

*LOL* Love it! I finally got my window screen fixed today and most of the grass cut and we're rearranging our living room too! The cutest part was the breastfeeding shirt though. It really is a 2-person job right? You need his support too. Anyway, just wanted to let you know I thought it was cute!

great idea - and how about putting a short one next to the 'reading throne'?

Great job, Tim! And great idea, Heidi! We just rearranged our living room, too! It must be in the air.
