February 17, 2012

White Dog and the others sat around Steve with their Planners open. "I am SO confused," complained Nuka. "Yeah, dad why can't you just work a schedule like normal parents do?"asked YoYoMa.  "These changes are SO hard," summed Puff.

Steve was outlining his teaching/work schedule for the upcoming school quarter which begins in the middle of March. He hoped it would help the White Dog Army power through the remaining couple weeks of back-to-back late nights and to look forward to what was coming up.

"Are Fridays still our Saturdays?" Quinn questioned. "Yes, with the added bonus that Saturday afternoons are also Saturdays," Steve replied. "What?" "I have all day Friday, from noon on for Saturday, and of course, Sunday."

"Mondays I can be home until 2pm but then it is a long night. Tuesdays I am only gone from 1-5pm. Wednesdays from 12 until 6. Thursday I go in at 5 to teach another late night class...and then we start the weekend!" We were all looking confused at this point, including me.

"Dad, why don't you just do a calendar page for us and post it on the refrigerator door where we can see it?" White Dog suggested. "It might just be easier for us to keep track of."

"This doesn't go into effect until mid March, right?" I asked. Steve nodded. I looked around at the WDA and outside at the sunshiny warm day. "Then why are we still talking about this? Let's go to the Park!"

Lucky your Dad sounds very organised White Dog Army. Work is such a nuisance at times isn't it, but it helps pay for the treats! No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

I have to agree with Mom - no use worrying when there are sunbeams to play in! Happy Sunday, friends :)
