Monday musings of the frantically busy kind
Well, work should hopefully be easing off a little soon, just a little, but I do hope I'm not tempting Murphy...
Today I had my last 8:00 am meeting and enough of us on the committee moaned about it that it's now been switched to 11:00. YES! I don't know what possesses people to make meetings at 8 am!
So we had to go through the whole rigmarole of the school thing again, applying for Grade 1. I can tell you I'm so over forms... and I didn't even complete the forms :)
We have to hand them in tomorrow and we don't have certified copies of two of the requirements, ones the school provides, so I hope they'll still accept them despite that!
In other news, I've been spending a frightful amount of money at the hardware store, on paint! I nearly fainted when the man said R1300 a tub. Seriously? Yes, seriously. So I hope and pray I love the colour when it's up and on the wall.... otherwise I'm going to have to grow to love it because a painter plus all that paint and supplies = A LOT OF MONEY.
I know we've just come back from holidays but D and I are heading off again soon to celebrate our 20-year anniversary. Yes!
Years ago, when I imagined 20 years, I considered a vow renewal on the beach, then a party at my old work campus, then a big trip but then I left that job and now I hardly have any leave, but just watch out, NEXT year, we are going to have to do something super awesome.
I can't imagine how some people always seem to be taking leave? I'm always happy to take unpaid leave...
Still, time away is always good and it will be a milestone for the kids too - first time they've slept out for 2 consecutive nights :o
Kendra had her first solo sleepover the other weekend and had a BALL! Spoiled by Granny. They both loved it.
Connor was devastated at first but then he told me about 4 things he wanted to do that were special for him (one of them was having a walk just with me - I know, my heart melted), and we had a lovely evening. I made him his favourite supper and we had lots of fun.
And that's me - basically caught up!
What's happening in your life?
