Reality Bites

Posted by MANDI at 7:30 PM
The ironing is done, school clothes are sorted and put away, school bags (and pencil cases) have been checked, cleaned out and restocked. Yep term starts tomorrow, and with it, I start an acting position that involves higher duties and more work hours for the next five or so weeks.

In a strange quirk, both kids are looking forward to returning to school. Poor #1 was sick with the flu the last week of term and through most of the holidays while the rest of us have had varying levels of head colds over the past couple of weeks so the holidays have, for the most part, been necessarily fairly quiet. The promised play-dates didn't happen and there were no sleep overs (apart from at Nan and Pop's while Hubby and I ran away for a couple of days) so I think both #1 and #2 are pretty keen to see their friends.

I've got a couple of meals in the freezer for this stint but haven't done nearly as much as I would have liked. I guess I'll just have to spend next weekend getting a bit more sorted out.

And the hardest bit is that tomorrow morning I'll be sitting at my desk reading through what needs to be done earlier than I woke up this morning. That's gonna hurt. It's gonna hurt bad.

I don't want to go back. I'm not ready! My ironing is not done, I don't have childcare for tomorrow, there are no meals in the freezer, my marking is not done...
I hope your term starts of better than mine is looking! ;)
And now to try and sleep.

We will be getting up earlier than normal, coz you are both going back to work. The ironing isn;t done, however we have nearly emptied the freezer as planned and I need a little girl to help me cook a slice tomorrow.
