Well, today's been okay. Hahaha. So far I've been to work, come back, finished two articles, rummaged up another (so I didn't have to write a third), tried for an hour and a half to get Oceana to sleep (75 mins of crying... GEEZ!), and made scones. Nope. I'm not supermom. I'm coping. Thank you! Hahaha. I managed to bake, but ignore the dishes, aren't I talented? Shhhh....
I guess the issues brought up are a bit rough, because everyone has their opinions. Some of the suggestions are great, but won't work for the moment.
I'd love the kid-swap. That would be perfect. But I just moved 6 weeks ago. I used to kid swap - well, more like Oceana-fobbed-off, because I don't ever remember watching Margo's kids - but I am in a new neighborhood and church. We don't have the youth group anymore - that's back where we used to live, an hour away. So while those girls would have clammered over one another to come play, two hours of driving to retrieve them isn't worth it. Especially at $2 a litre for gas. No, I'm not kidding. That equates to about $6.40 USD/gallon for gas. I wish I was kidding.
The only other people I know who have kids - I don't know very well. The people I know very well are pregnant. Late pregnant too - so you don't send your crazy 2 year old to a 9 month pregnant woman and expect her to still be awake or alive for that matter in 3 hours. In the future, we're hoping that the office will have a nanny or we can have a nursery in the office, and then share the childcare in the office - as there will soon be 4!!! kids with both parents working for volunteer organizations, and another whose mum will be working with us (Dad works crazy hours, so I expect Baby D will be at the office, as his dad probably has to sleep strange hours).
Housework. Well, I'm sure I'm not the only one who fights that one. I'm not the only one who does a LOT of housework. But I refuse to discuss that "housework sharing" subject on a further on here.
For the time being I'm gonna have to learn to work from home. I just had two deadlines in two days and then had the meeting I had planned fall through because our director had a blood pressure flare up overnight - so no meeting.
On that note. I'm off to deliver chocolate and scones to the office (chocolate for my husband, scones for anyone else) and then take the car in for its inspection. How exciting. Oh, but it is - the inspection place is walking distance from the department store... :)
