…..I had a fight with Child2. About clothing. We usually fight about that hoodie that he wants to wear everyday.
Well this morning he insisted on wearing the BLUE boxer shorts. The same pair that he wore yesterday. He even went to retrieve them out of the dirty laundry. I gave him a different blue one to wear. HE wasn’t interested because the one I gave him doesn’t have a picture on the front. I am generally quite relaxed about stuff like this (goodness me,
I allow him to wear that same hoodie every single day) but I was NOT going to give in and allow him to wear dirty boxers. I dressed him while he kicked and pinched and bit and scratched and and and. Then I walked away because I didn’t want to lose my nuts – really, I was ready to pinch him and bite him back!
Then he followed me and cried for nail polish. I told him that there was no time for that and that we could do our nails after school. Of course that wasn’t good enough. He cried all the way to school and gave me a headache. I put the music LOUD. He cried even LOUDER. When we arrived at school he ran straight to Sheila. Apparently I am the bad guy now.
Gosh, he has such a hard life, his Mommy even MAKES him wear clean underwear. Poor kid.
So. To make myself feel a bit better, I went out and bought nail polish. Yellow nail polish from Rimmel called 280 sunshine. My DH asked me this evening if I’m trying to get in touch with my inner canary. I told him I’m trying to find my inner sunshine.
I also paid some bills. No, this did not make me feel better because I now have no more cash left until pay-day. Sigh. Thank goodness it’s temporary.
I collected something FABULOUS at the Post Office. Don’t you just love when a fellow blogger and beautiful friend spoils you and your kids?
I went to Pep and bought another 6 of those blue boxers with the picture on it. I do NOT want a repeat of this morning ever again.
And I made a few lists. A shopping list (am going to attempt to make Red Curry this weekend – have you made it before? Do you have a nice, easy recipe?), a to-do list for the month of October (I’ve posted it a bit further down), a Christmas gift list and another list of things I still need to do before the end of 2012.
This is what I’m planning for myself for this month:
Read one NF and one other book. I put Millenium Trilogy on the back burner for now – will start it next month. Am going to read a Dorothy Koomsom instead.
Buy yellow paint for the lounge.
Blog about ADD/ADHD for 31 days starting just now.
Three dates with DH.
Two friend dates.
New summer uniform for Child1.
Make sure that Child2 has enough clothing for summer and if not make some more lists and go and put some stuff aside at Edgars for my Mother to buy. She offered to buy him summer clothing. Isn’t she divine?
Clean desk and re-organise craft supplies and knitting stuff (wool and needles.)
Dump A LOT of thin clothing – I am probably never going to be a size 10 again – may as well move on already.
Go and see dressmaker about work pants and a possible outfit for a wedding in December.
Crochet. One granny square doing the single stitch and another granny square doing the treble stitch.
Do you have anything interesting on your to-do list for this month?
So after dinner we pd nails. HE chose the 280 sunshine (new one that I bought today) AND a black and we had to alternate the colours on each nail. He’s now sporting a Maya the Bee look on both his toe nails and his fingernails. He’s very proud of his paint, even though my DH is quite unimpressed with me for giving in to “this nail polish nonsense.” I told him that it’s only nail polish and not a bra already! Sigh.
Anyway, this was my Wednesday. What’s happening in your life today?
