What a Mess

Everything feels like a big mess lately. I started working. 4 mornings a week from home and 1 day a week in the office. I haven't worked since just before I had Charli, so nearly 4 years. That is a long time to not be working, I was kind of used to having my days to myself to do what I felt like when I felt like and now I have less than half the time I used to. I now understand feeling busy all the time, but I have to say that I am really enjoying it. It is nice to be contributing financially and also to have something to stimulate my brain.

The downside is that every thing feels like a mess. I am getting my work done, but because I am new to it, it is taking me longer than it would normally. This means that I feel like I am not getting anything else done. The funny thing is that I don't really think I was doing alot before. I had kind of gotten to the point where I was really lacking motivation, I wasn't enjoying doing the housework, not that many people really do, but I think that whilst it is not great to do it, it is lovely to have a nice tidy house and that wasn't even motivating me. It is possible that the house is now tidier than it was before I was working, but I feel like I am more out of control and busy than I was before. Oh well, I will get there.

Charli is very excited about going to childcare for 1 day a week and super excited about her upcoming birthday party. This will be her first acual birthday party and she wanted to have it at McDonalds which is fine with me and easy. Pretty much every day she asks me when her birthday is and how many more sleeps, only 32.

Paige is doing really well at school, enjoying doing her Wise Ones program and her reading and writing is improving dramatically. She has her school photos today so it will be nice to get them and see how much she has changed since her photos were taken last year. Sometimes you can really see how much she has grown up and changed and it is scary, going way too fast.

Well, I think that is about it for now.
