memo: to my boss

i've been meaning to talk about accruing more sick leave. it seems i don't get any. i'd like to be able to take a nap while i'm sick. maybe not have laundry. and of course, sleep through the night. and while we're at it, i'd like some vacation time. just the standard week out of every year would be great. i'd like to take it all at once though, i'll even take my work with me, just as long as i'm not scrubbing toilets, making meals, or doing second grade homework. i'd like it to be away from stressful family.

i'd also like my work environment to be cleaned. i feel working with so much poo can be hazardous. as well as legos on the floor, capes on the stairs, and hotwheels in the dark. i'd like not to be known as "the tissue" or "the puke bucket" or "the bandaid"

i'd also like a raise. it seems the 7 year old decided to withhold kisses from me. since that is all i work on, i'd like him to resume payment for feeding/nurturing. he's not allowed to grow up and think i'm not cool. i'd like the 4 year old to at least look like he's listening to me. and i'd really love it if my 1 year old would snuggle, preferably during waking hours.

if you don't meet these, i'm sure it will be no big deal. i seem to work for free anyway. i just thought i'd ask.

aren't you the boss too? That's how it works around here-- boss and slave labor, all rolled into one.

Aw man. Sorry you're not getting the bonuses and pay raises you deserve. You seriously make me laugh.

I say eat some ice cream covered brownies and watch a movie. Bag the cleaning... it's over-rated anyway. ;)

Get well soon... ALL of you!
