this week mark had a work trip for two nights. i know it does not sound like a big deal … and honestly, it really isn’t … but for some reason the wheels fell off my wagon & i’ve been on struggle street ever since he left ! now, don’t hear me complaining, i just want to share this because the sequence of events is really quite funny & i know that come tonight we will have a really good laugh about it. this has been my week thus far:
- turned up to an early morning dr appointment for the kids (which was hard to get to so early with the kids) only to be told it was booked for tuesday not monday ;
- we then decided to have a baby cino to feel better about ourselves, but as soon as we ordered, the little man had an accident (due to the shopping centre loos being so faaaaaarrrrrr away !!!!) – this never happens, so it meant we had to go straight home to get a change of clothes;
- we were then late for joey’s music lesson & only had half a lesson (we love music!);
- after music, the kids then locked themselves in the car & it took the NRMA 40 minutes to get them out. two positives: joey is a champ for pressing the ‘small button’ when the keys were finally handed to him; and, the Honda CRV is IMPOSSIBLE to break into … yippee.
- went to the dr appointment (again) and discovered the kids are a lot sicker than i thought & we were referred to some specialist pediatricians – bummer;
- we played in the park with friends in the afternoon only to leave slightly too late & got held up in traffic right on dinner time – my bad.
Tuesday night/Wednesday morning.
- the baby decided not to sleep from 11 pm to 4 am. i had no control & honestly did not know what to do?!
- finally some good news, i took a load of rubbish to the tip (yes! i love that kind of stuff…) & had a baby cino / chai with my dad = relaxing.
Needless to say, i am on struggle street & i need to get off !
Overall, i am thankful for this experience – it’s times like these that you realise that you are surrounded by some pretty amazing people. seriously guys – you have been sooooooooo awesome. thank you for calling me, texting me, fb’ing me. i loved all my OS messages on fb at 4 am this morning – yes ! to globalisation & reaching friends in foreign lands when you feel alone & need them. thank you !
mark always plays this version of cornflake girl by tori amos for me … i have found great comfort blasting it through our stereo these last three days thinking of him & how he will come home and fix everything. come home mark !!
i wish i could play the piano like she can … wow.
