Due to all this and having the time I took two weeks off from work. We will visit museums, go to Boston, go camping in Maine and just chill. I am so glad to have the time.
We went out to dinner last night and walked all over Boston, I miss living in the city.
Mathilda is 3. I can't believe it. She is a really happy sweet kid, very giving. Autumn was pitching a fit because Mathilda got the new red toothbrush and she wanted it. The next day Mathilda gave Autumn the red toothbrush, she said she'd take the green one and gave Autumn a hug.
It blows my mind. From working with some kick ass women who are in their 50s and 60s I know that life is what you make it and I will do that.
I am trying to write this with two giggling girls on my bed.
I think I have to go find out what they are doing.
- Current Mood: accomplished
I've also taken on the role of treasurer for our condo association. blech. Not happy about it, I'm learning to use quickbooks and deciphering the previous treasurer's notes.
I had to work two Saturday's in a row, and Dave is super busy so my parent's came over and watched the girls. We've been so busy juggling our schedules.
I honestly get jealous of those who can stay home with their kids-I think in my ideal world I'd work part time. However, this is not the ideal world and we live in a very expensive state so off to full time work I go!
Anyway, I took the week off, working Sunday the 23rd and Saturday the 29th but off every day in between. We had friends visit, went to see great Christmas lights, went to the Enchanted Village, visited family, had a very mild, no drama Christmas and just chilled. It was so nice to just be with the girls and Dave. We do not get enough of that.
Trying to get in the spirit of the season because the girls are so excited and we have done a few holiday things, I took Autumn to see the nutcracker and we participated in a holiday peace pageant at the UU church we belong to.
Dave and I are fighting, very stressed because of his work and now my car needs to be fixed, yet again.
I am such a joy today!
I saw Leonard Cohen on Sunday night and it was wonderful. He is such a gentleman and so gracious. He skipped across the stage and sang at some points on his knees. The man is close to 80.
Autumn started kindergarten today. As you can see, she was super excited. We had some snafus, no busing, just got the bill for the full day and owe 1300 on it already. However, she seems to love it already, although cried a bit yesterday at orientation she practically jumped out of the car this morning. I was a blubbering mess. I can't believe my baby is five and in kindergarten. It goes so fast.
Autumn is starting kindergarten on Thursday. I'm freaking out. I keep looking at pictures of her as a baby and cannot believe that she is five and just growing up. Mathilda has started her new daycare and I am happy with her. I'm pissed at the previous daycare though. We had Autumn there for two years, 27,000 dollars total. We pulled Mathilda out after putting a deposit down in the spring, I sent a letter at the end of July stating we'd not be enrolling her, we moved, needed a closer location, etc. Apparently they do not give refunds of deposits. This was half a month's tuition. 450 dollars. The director said we could possibly get the money back if someone else took her place. I am a little sick about this but hopeful that it will be filled. The director was also so rude about the whole thing. Seriously, I am sure others have pulled out in July, lives change!
Anyway, a brand new school year begins. I am hopeful it will be good.
