Office Memos

My poor husband Spike works and slaves for this family with little or no glory. I remember the days when I was stuck in front of a computer all day, dreaming of my half hour lunch break huddled in a back room with an energy bar and celeb gossip magazine. You couldn't pay me enough to do that again. But Spike has a good attitude about it.

Today was one of those rare times when working in an office actually is like an episode of the t.v. show, The Office. Spike's law firm is on an upper floor of an office building that has a bank at ground level. A few minutes ago my darling Spike was working away at his desk when a memo came across his screen from the office manager. It read:

If you're going to the bank this morning, please wait until we get an "all clear" from the building. The bank is being robbed.

Hopefully that will get him through the rest of the day until he gets to shut off the computer and come home. Hang in there, buddy!

For all you long distance family members who pine for my lovely girls, here's a video of Cher from Monday. She's spent about 10 hours a day doing this ever since she learned on Monday.

HOLY CRAP! Do you think the robbers knew they were screwing with getting a good defense from the guys upstairs?

Love the video, especially how hard she is working to get up that slide. Don't forget to breathe, Char! (to quote all those silly exercise videos)

Ok that memo would help my day go nicely back in the day of sitting behind the desk!

I love Cher-- what a cutie!! What a cute mom too! So encouraging and so patient with Pixie in the background!! :)

Emma said...

She is so cute. I especially love the panting. You are the coolest mom to have a slide in their room!

i think the office manager was preparing to rob the bank and wanted to keep the number of witnesses to a minimum.

HA! If that happened on The Office Dwight would have gone down and attempted to save everyone through some elaborate plan that involved duct tape and a marble and two straws. And ended up locked in the vault.

And Cher is a cutie. I love it when kids learn something new and then do it for the next three days non-stop.

Wow, I need a bottle of Purple after that. I think I just let go of all my antioxidants. No seriously, I would pee my pants and hid under my desk. Glad everything worked out okay!

You can really appreciate that show if you work in an office. All kinds of bizarre things happen (and bizarre people). Its me thinking "this kind of thing would happen at Dunder Miflin" that gets me through the day.

Your baby is adorable.
