I got a load of dishes done today and a load of washing. I spent about an hour trying to declutter my computer desk. It's looking a little better. Got rid of some rubbish. Paid some bills. How depressing to spend about $1000 and only have a few receipt numbers to show for it? No clothes, nothing new, well except for my new, ugly brown registration sticker!
I got a text message warning of extreme weather conditions tomorrow. I know it's going to be a total fire ban, but I really feel like it's a bit of overkill. It's so dry around here, so I know we're at risk, but the black Saturday fires has really shaken everyone up. People are keeping their kids home from school. It's going to be in the 30s and really windy. I have to decide if I'm sending 4yo to kinder. I will be. I might stay with her. I was supposed to do kinder duty last week, but with being sick, and having no car, I decided not to. They said I was welcome to stay any time. At least we'd all be together if something happened.
I don't want to think the worst, but after we had a fire on the highway at the end of our street, it's kinda shaken me a little.
I've backed up my computer files, so if I have to flee, I can just grab my external harddrive.
I still haven't put all the photos together. I think that's due to a bit of denial and the thought that it's such a big job.
Ken came home in pain. He got himself stuck on the front doorstep tonight, he couldn't get up. He wont be at work tomorrow. But as he is in so much pain, I'll probably be looking after him. I wont get any help with the girls. Selfish thought, but I am finding it so hard to do it all on my own. even the little things he does around the house are a help. loading the dishwasher, or even watching the girls if I need to go out. I was going to go boxing for the first time tonight, but there was no way he was going to be able to get the girls to bed. I have decided to cancel my gym memberships, just for a few months. It's pointless paying money when I can't get there. If Ken's having a good day and I can go out, I can pay casually at either gym. Once he's back on track and I've got my mojo back, I can join again.
It's 10:20pm, past my bedtime.
