My kids are home schooled but take some outside classes. My 8yo has a full day of classes on Mondays, which started back today, as did gymnastics for my younger two. I was so NOT ready for this! We got out the door late, in part because I depended on my big kids to help with laundry which they didn't do well. I had nothing to eat and was absolutely miserable by the time we got somewhere I could get food that sounded decent. And as I was driving, I was thinking, "Hmm, I'm not sure a bagel is good because it's awful when it comes back up." :eyeroll I did end up with a bagel and juice and survived gymnastics, but couldn't find anything for lunch (and obviously hadn't prepared well enough to take anything with me!). By the time I found something I could actually get AND eat, I was throwing up in the car.
Which is pretty miserable, I gotta say, especially when there are people around (not to mention the kids) and you're trying to turn and contort so not to be noticed, meanwhile filling a to-go cup with bile. Yeah. Not fun.
In better news, a sweet wool diaper cover I ordered for the baby arrived today.
Has anyone else bought anything special for baby yet? I feel like I want to do *something*, yet it's still so early. My 5yo asked if it was for my 2yo, and I evaded the question. I'm really wanting to tell them so will have to do that soon. I think it will be easier. Besides, I need to see my MW soon and it will be hard to hide that since she comes to my house.
I came home after my DS's classes and crashed for a nap with the 5yo. Slept right through the mom's group I'd been planning to go to.
But the sleep was gooood. Much needed. DS slept pretty much as long as I did, too, so clearly he needed it! And we managed to get the garbage taken out tonight and cleaned up a little in the living room. Tomorrow is an all-cleaning, all-day kind of day. A friend is paying for maid service and it starts Wednesday, so we have to get ready!
I just hope I can manage to get the cleaning done. I've had zero energy for any of this for a loooong time.
