I stayed home today. I never stay home on Mondays. Monday is my big work day, when I go in and create the codes for all the new products, catch up on weekend-events, things that are out-of-stock, etc. But Hubs pointed out that I work more than he does and I had things to do today, so we switched and I stayed home.... I'm not very good at it.
- I dropped off my car at the dealership for a 15000 km tune-up. Turns out I was supposed to go at 6 month/8000 km, not 14 month/15000...... oops!
- I don't like the park. It's taken me 3 years of being a parent to realize, I don't like taking the kids to the park. I don't mind pushing them on the swing in my own back-yard for an entire hour, and I don't mind watching them make 12 dozen sand cakes at home, but it doesn't translate to the public park. I'm miserable there. BB had a tantrum because a daycare was using all the swings, and tryas I might to teach her about waiting her turn, all I kept thinking was that if we were at home, she could switch from swing A to swing B without even having to fight her sister for it. And when a little kid came over and grabbed her pail without asking and she protested, I packed her up and took her home. I should have been teaching her patience and sharing, but I didn't. I went home. In the end, she was in a terrible mood and needed an early nap, so it was a good move on my part, but that's not why I did it. I did it because I don't like going to the park.
- at 10 past the hour, I started freaking out because the carpool hadn't dropped off Dumpling yet and school let out at 1:30 and she should have been home by now, it doens't take 40 min to drive home from school.... But instead of panicking and calling the other mom, I called Hubs at work to see if it ever happened that Monday drop-off was late (since he's usually the one home on Mondays). He asked me what time it was.... 1:15 I said..... yeah, school lets out at 1:30, she'll be home in an hour! it's 10 past ONE not 10 past TWO......
