My life has been a lot more stressful than normal, in the past week or two. First of all, the whole selling the house and school thing. Plus, the kids are out of school. Plus I've been working twice as much as normal. Plus, my days have just been busier. In order to keep my kids in check, and from dying from boredom, I've kept them busy pretty much all the time.
We've spent a lot of time swimming. Double benefit: sun tires them out, and they have fun. We also made a trip to the library, where the kids each picked out a stack of books. They've only had them one day, and are almost done with all of them. The books are fairly thin, but those are the books they wanted to read. And I'm not one to complain if they get up early in the morning, and read until 9am.
On top of the busier schedule, this afternoon has been particularly stressful. Joe lost his wallet. Or so he thought. So we had to change our bank accounts and switch over all the automatic payments. Luckily I found the wallet before too much damage was done. But at that moment I just wanted to curl up in a ball. 3 kids needed me. grandma needed me. And our financial well being was up in the air. Oh, and while all of this was going on, I was trying to cook dinner. I'm glad to sit for a moment and breath. I'm ready to have a few low key days!
