Overall I am finding it very tiring. Not just the hours that I am at work, but also the stress of remembering everything that needs to be done. Lunches to pack, clothes to lay out, medications to draw up, library on Thursday, news on Monday, don't forget the hats.... I'm sure you all know what its like.
Murray is doing really well with getting the girls ready in the morning. We have started using Skype so I can have a quick chat to them and see them before they go to school and preschool which makes a huge difference to my day. I need to SEE them, and see that they are OK otherwise I worry about them all day long (usually I leave before they get up which would mean not seeing them until after school).
Anyway, the summary to this waffle is that I / we are surviving me working more. Everything that needs doing is getting done, just in a slightly more dishevelled fashion than normal.
The following things may or may not have happened in the last week. If DOCS are asking, they definitely did not happen.
Audrey may have been wearing her pants backwards at preschool this week.
Emma may have gone to school one day with her shirt buttoned incorrectly, her collar tucked inside her shirt AND both legs stuck in the same leg hole of her cullottes.
Ashlea may have crawled down the front stairs, out the gate and half way down the driveway towards the road after
Audrey may have stripped off all her clothes after swimming and then done a nudey lap of the entire swimming centre while yelling out 'I need to do a wee', as her teacher and I yelled from the pool for her to come back.
So, you know, life as normal really. Just with less organisation.
