Soren took a turn keeping Troy and I up last night. In the end I climbed into his bed to ‘make warm and cosy’ as he begged me to, and then didn’t wake up until morning. I’m so tired. Please children, sleep tonight and let your mama rest.
Troy took the three little kids to their swimming lessons and I took Nicholai to Auskick this morning. I talked to Dad and then Elle on the phone while I waited, and froze because I’d had a shower just before we left and hadn’t dried my hair so it was like an ice hat on my head.
Today has just been a nothing kind of day. I tried to nap but kept getting disturbed, the children did childlike things, and I wondered if it’s possible to drag myself out of this hole. I can see the sunshine, but I just don’t know how to get myself up there.
I played the Sims 3 a lot. I’m finding it an escape, my little digital Sims world, and I’m now on to the fourth generation of my family. The kids like to sit beside me and tell me what to do with the Sims and they all seem to have their favourite characters that I’ve made.
I’m also going through my photos on my computer because I have printed out no photos all year. Considering how many photos I actually take, going through them to select ones I want to print is a very long and drawn out process. Although it’s fun too, so see what we’ve been doing all year. I’m amazed at how much Soren’s hair has grown!
I vacuumed the house this afternoon. The one thing I can say about letting your housework disintegrate to the level I had is that you really notice when you finally attend to it. It’s so much better. At least until Soren tips all the puzzles over the floor, which he just did. Thanks little buddy.
