Freaky Friday

by Megan

We are switching places for the summer!

Let me explain.

My dad owns a software company called Event Rental Systems which sells a software he created called Party Track for Windows, which is used by party rental companies all over the US and Canada. What? You say you happen to own a party rental company? Well, then here is the link!

I’ve worked for him regularly since college, whether it was 5 hours a week or my current 18 hours. Right now I work one full day at their house (where he has an office) while my mom watches my kids, and then I squeeze in another 9 hours in the evenings during the rest of the week. It’s a pretty sweet set-up.
Daniel has talked about switching places before, with varying levels of seriousness, where he would stay home with the kids and I would go get a full time job. Well, I don’t want to do that, but I do look forward to that one day a week where I get a “break” from watching the kids.
So we are taking advantage of the fact that Daniel has summers off, and he’s going to stay home with the kids while I go to work 9-4 Monday-Thursday. I’ll probably go up to his school office to work (which is about a mile away), to get away from the distractions here. It just so happened that my dad wants me to finish a big project, so I will be easily filling up those extra hours with work!
Anyway, this is really exciting to me because we get the best of both worlds. I love staying home with my kids, but I’m looking forward to a temporary change, and Daniel is excited that he gets to spend more time with the kids over the summer.
Win. Win. Win.
