It's Tuesday! Hurrah! I've been waiting for this day for weeks. The day when getting this god foresaken house ready for open inspections is finished. The day when we can pack our bags and forget about lists and chores. The day when tired, sick, cranky, shouty mama gets left behind and happy, relaxed, chilled out mama gets discovered.
Before we get on that flight tonight, I have a list as long as my arm to get finished. I may need to put the kids in straight jackets in the mean time. Their fighting has been out of this world the past day or so, they both have war wounds to prove it. I'm hoping some time away will calm everyone down.
The past few weeks, it's felt like the universe has thrown everything at me to make this time even harder. Agonising back pain, ear infections, gastro. Here we are on the other side. The house isn't as perfect as I'd hoped and there are plenty of things I wished I'd managed to get done, but I've done my best.
Now it's time to forget about the house and time for a week of thinking about beach, pool, sleeping, eating out, Easter eggs, reading books, playing, having fun. Bring it on.
Have a happy Easter all. Have a safe and happy extra long holiday weekend. Eat plenty of Easter eggs and Anzac bikkies. I'm sure I'll post while I'm away. x
