    Ok. The priority work is done so now I can play a bit... I got my paper done and I'm pretty sure I nailed it.

    Racing tonight. We're taking Brady but not Makenna. She's staying with my stepmom. Not sure if she'll be staying overnight or not, but I think stepmom is planning on keeping her. I'm not sure I'm comfortable with her not being home. I don't like my kids being away from home overnight - nor do I like being away from home overnight without my kids...

    A lot of fun planned for the races tonight. They're doing what they call "mechanic's night" where the drivers race their cars, and then someone from the pit crew gets to race it. I'm pretty sure Brad will let his dad race it, but no one else. He's still got a pretty big race coming up in a couple of weeks and he's not going to want the car wrecked. Might not even let anyone drive it simply to keep it off the track away from the other "mechanics" who are driving. After that, they're doing trailer races which is a lot like a demo derby. People round up old crappy trucks, get them running, attach some form of trailer behind it and then race it with the sole intention of destroying them. I've seen campers, hot tubs on hayracks, and boats in these races before. It's funny and it's kind of cool to watch stuff get torn up just for the sake of tearing it up. Makes an enormous mess though!

    So, that's tonight. Tomorrow, Brad is working. I was hoping to go to the farmer's market, but I'd have to take two kids with me and that doesn't seem like a very relaxing time to me, so I'll likely pass and go next week. Brad's also working on Sunday. Which is good. The overtime will be nice.

    Um... I think that's it... I'm rambling... lol

    Kids and farmers markets rarely go well together - unless you have very calm submissive children. They aren't in big supply.

    Yes, good job on the paper! You are fortunate to have a job that allows you to do other things while at the office. count your blessings

    The racing thing sounds fun - I've always wanted to run a race car around a track - only with NO other cars around me to crash into! And giant wheels on the both sides so if I get too close to the sides the wheels will just turn with me and there will be no crashing and dying involved. Have fun!

    The reason I'm allowed to do my school work at work is because work funds my education (huge benefit!!). Because they fund it, they consider it "military training" and therefore feel it in their best interest to also provide me with time, should I need it, to do the work. They are VERY big on education in the military. The last office I worked in REQUIRED everyone to either earn or work toward a degree while employed there. Military and civilians alike. And if you didn't pursue a degree, you were dinged on your evaluation. I started my degree working in that office and this office is just as accommodating (although probably really annoyed by it at times). I have done very little school work at home. And I do consider myself blessed in that regard. I'm very thankful of the Army for the educational opportunities it has given me. In fact, my admissions essay theme was everything I am and have is because of the Army.

    That's AWESOME, Jenn! What a blessing! HUGE benny from your job! My boss told me when I started working there that they offered $2500 per year toward educational pursuit for the "professional" employees. Which I was when I worked there from 2001 to 2007 --- however, I never took advantage of it cuz I knew he really couldn't afford it. He wanted to be able to afford it, but he really couldn't. So I never asked for it. Now - I'm just p/t so I don't think its available to me anymore. Not that I would use it - but I sure do enjoy taking classes. I could be a professional student if I was independently wealthy! What a great life that would be!

    Tomi, I could do the same - perpetually take classes for no reason what-so-ever other than to get smarter.

    Yeah, I was good at being a student too. If only they handed out paycheques for it.
