your lordship's leather sandals

The best thing about school vacation is there’s no school! There’s no homework. No forcing people into bed right this minute, and back out in the morning like strips of bacon. There’s no math test or Latin vocabulary. No long-assed parents’ night. No has everybody got lunch money? No piano lessons or gym clothes. It’s as if part of my superego has gone to sleep, or is off jet-skiing in the Caribbean. I get up in the morning and close the shades so no one will wake up!

My beloved Sandra, elementary school Principal, informs me that she and the teachers feel much the same way.

And as a parent and a teacher . . .

I have to say having your kids on vacation is just as good as being on vacation yourself, probably because a big part of ONE of your jobs doesn't need doing.
