Thursday Recap (2)

Friday 11th was the last day of dress up week at Riley’s Daycare so I sent him dressed up as a Raccoon again 🙂 Soooo Cute!!! And I went and had my eyes tested, nothing eventful happened there.image

Saturday’s are housework day, so when that was done we went to a friend’s house for a BBQ dinner, where Riley had fun playing with another little boy, it was great they ran around and wore each other out.

Sunday is my funday! I pretty much stuffed around all day, drew some stickmen, played with riley, read a book and then watched Masterchef.

It’s just another Manic Monday; Worked, did some stickman drawing and then watched Masterchef.

The dreaded Tuesday, my first day back at TAFE in eight years. I was freaking out, over whelmed, and most of all missing time with my little man.

Wednesday – hump day – half way there day; Worked, did some stickman drawing and then watched Masterchef.

Then we come to today Thursday 17th, Yay! Riley’s swimming lesson day. We used to go to swimming on Tuesdays but as I am back working Tuesdays swimming had to be moved, hence we had a new teacher, new place in the pool and new classmates. Riley really did not cope with so many changes all at once. Normally Riley loves his swimming lessons, but today he was very clingy and even had a cry – poor bubba, but he will get used to the changes.

I’ve got TAFE again tonight – I also need to get used to the changes 😐

Life Lately

I haven’t had time to post much lately, things have been rather hectic.

I’ve lost many hours and been through a great deal of stress trying to get everything organised for my son to start day care next week. So I’m already upset at the fact that I’m losing my baby boy to strangers, then I get dicked around by the government over child care rebates – NOT HAPPY JAN!!! Anyway I got it all sorted today finally, but DAMN why does everything have to be so hard!

I’m constantly on edge at the moment and it’s really starting to get on top of me – I NEED A BREAK – but as a mum I’ll never get one again. Just when I think I’m at my lowest point, in the darkest frame of mind I’ve ever been in, I get lower and it gets darker, I’m swinging like a god damn chimpanzee.

I did have a high light on Tuesday, it was my son’s first swimming lesson. I was really nervous, but Riley seemed to have a good time. He loves the water, he was one of the few babies who didn’t cry. When he was supposed to be floating on his back he kicked his legs and when he was supposed to be kicking he was just staring at the ceiling or watching the other babies – Yep that’s my boy easily distracted and doesn’t do what he’s told (sounds just like me all the way through school).

Tomorrow is February first so I’m going to get back on the band wagon with the 365 post challenge, I haven’t managed to do it for a few days now.

Also tomorrow I’ll be attending a day course on creative writing run by the Hunter Writers Centre. Really the last thing I feel like doing at the moment is going to a course in town, I’d rather stay in bed for a month straight in a dark quiet cave, but I know I’ll enjoy myself one I get there. I hope! I’m going to have to try a shut the real world out for the day.
