They should send all of the staff wives on their own retreat to recover from their staff retreat. I think a full week's vacation all expenses paid should cover it, don't you?

christie walker said...

I feel the same way about coffee. If I havent had my coffee yet you askin' for it.

And yes all you staff wives/mothers should totally get a vacation, when they return home.

Kurt said...

we are your vacation

Heidi said...

Yeah.

National Lampoon's Fountain Valley Vacation.

Kristi said...

heidi...kurt is grumpy too without his coffee. yikes. :o)

Connie said...

Heidi & Laurel...

...the wives retreat has been done before...we can do it again....just say when....

(..this comment posted by Connie-who is sitting at JFK awaiting a flight home from a fantastic week in New York...
I guess saying... "wish you could have been here".....would be a little mean right now....)

Let me know....I'll go anywhere...anytime...

RE: connie's post...

can i go to that retreat to? or do i not get to play with da' ladies?

VikingMom said...

I dunno Kristi...you kinda switched over to the dark side. We might have to have a meeting and decide your fate! :)

The last time we had a wives retreat Aaron was 1 month old. Where has the time gone?

johnsonandjohnson said...

I MISS coffee, well coffee with caffeine at least. November 11th is going to be a good day. Bittersweet, but that's where the caffeine will help!

Kristi said...

um...yeah....but please recall that 9 times out of 10, i am also left home alone with the kidz. and for that i need another retreat!

Heidi said...

Kristi - you're an enigma because you're a staffer (dark side) and you're a staff wife (sunshine and light side). I think a wive's retreat would be incomplete without your smiling little face.

Connie - I think we should all go to New York. Seriously. I need to go back to New York. I love it there!

VikingMom said...

Kristi...that is a good argument about the 9 out of 10. Maybe we'll just dock you for an hour or two. Let's say the retreat starts for us at 2 pm...for you it won't start until 3. :)

Okay, fine. You're in. No docking of time required.

Heidi said...

Well Laurel - we can let her in - but let's not go nuts here... I think docking one hour would be appropriate given her strong ties to the Dark Side.

Consider that hour to be a time of cleansing.

VikingMom said...

Hee Hee! I can see it now. We can all go out to a nice restaurant right off the bat and make her wait outside until her hour of "cleansing" is over. Kristi would look so sad with her face and hands smushed up on the window like a sad little kid.

Is that too mean?

discomommy said...

What do I have to do to get an invite?

Heidi said...

Consider yourself invited! We should go over a holiday because you have the best holiday traditions. I'm still in awe of the leprechaun pee.

Kristi said...

you guys do realize that i am hanging out with boys, right? granted, they are your boys and you'd rather be with them. HOWEVER, do any of you have any idea how bad your boys smell when they are put together in a room (specifically Billy and Matt W.)???? When I walked into their room tonight, I almost passed out. It smelled like a mixture of cat pee, dirty underwear (the kind with streaks in it), a can of tuna left open, and oh...i dunno, a sippy cup of old milk that has been sitting in a hot van for 8 days.

That's punishment enough. I'm joining you at dinner. The end.

Billy said...

Oh, my gosh...

I am so embarrased and only partially to blame. Very descriptive Kristi, thanks.

For the record, if you do go somewhere I would meet all of you for Bingo Night.

VikingMom said...

Billy dear, this is a retreat for the women. You've worked your way into our concert night: now stay out of this one!

Heidi said...

Billy - you and Kurt will be busy watching the kids. No Bingo for you.
