Today is the observance of MLK’s birthday.  That means no school for the kids. Since it’s a holiday for me, that makes me the designated kid watcher.  The wife is working today ,but she works from home. That gives me the particular challenge of not only entertaining the kids, but keeping them out of my wife’s hair while she works.

The current plan is to renew our zoo membership and take them out for a while. The problem is, there’s a caveat.  They have to clean their rooms to go.  I hear industrious noises above me while I type, so there’s hope.

Of course, my kids are notorious room non-cleaners.  So the question is, how far will they get.  I’m thinking perhaps I might look the other way at crap shoved in closets today.

The perfect is the enemy of the good.
