Well it was back to work for me today (I work in a school and last week was Spring Break). So I am driving DD to the babysitter and I pull into the driveway and something doesn't look right. No truck in the driveway... the blinds are closed... and it is dark inside. I am thinking OH NO... they are not home but praying that they just over slept. Well no one answers the door and the neighbor says they are not home yet. They are still on vacation and wouldn't be coming home until tonight! WHAT!! I don't think they realized that even though the students don't have school today... teachers had to report to work (teacher work day). On top of that, I don't have anyone else to watch DD. My mom is out of town and DH's mom is in China on vacation. My dad was off today... but he is an alcoholic and I would NEVER leave DD with him.

So... I called my boss and she let me bring DD in for 1/2 a day so I could get my ordering done for next year (everyone in the district is supposed to order ALL materials we need for the next school year today). So I took DD with me for 1/2 a day and then I had to take 1/2 a personal day! It was CRAZY! DD was not a happy 2 year old. Plus, she made a HUGE mess in my room! Oh well... at least everything worked out... but what a day!

I'm sure it was a crazy day for you. I can't imagine bringing my 2 year old to work with me.
