And boy I am excited. I actually really love holidays with the kids at home, but this one has been a doozy. My daughter is going into grade 1 and so excited to be going back to school that everything else in comparison is "boring". So I don't feel so guilty about looking forward to having some child free time.
My son is starting Kindy, so that is only 2 days a week, but 2 days that I will be putting my feet up until baby number 3 is born. Although I am a little worried about how I will react when he is at Kindy. The first day with my daughter I was fine. The second day it was like a wall of depression hit me and I was a blubbering mess ALL DAY and was at the gates waiting mournfully for her way before the day was supposed to end.
Anyway after weeks of rain and floods, I am exhausted after trying to fit in all our holiday fun into one week of sunshine. I have one more day of exhaustion to endure - the cleaning of the house once kids are out of it. I officially gave up last Thursday. I kept the living area tidy and ignored the kids rooms. However I also ignored any cleaning of bathrooms or floors, and I being an insane 8.5 month pregnant woman am getting twitches looking at the grime building up. So no matter my state tomorrow I won't feel settled until I get the job done.
Then Tuesday - to lie on my couch uninterrupted for at least 4 hours.
