Pre-Christmas – Rush, rush, rush
The next two weeks are going to go by in fast-forward mode – my calendar is full of notes, appointments and to do lists :|
I no longer have Wednesdays off work to run errands, spend time with the kids or cook dinners. In addition, I’ve decided to join the “12 days of CrossFit” challenge at my CrossFit gym and that means that I have to fit in a class every freaking day from this Monday until the 14th of December.
There are also various work/school/nursery related Christmas functions AND a costume hunt for my little “Joseph” for tomorrow’s nativity play (eek!! so soon!!!) AND Christmas presents going overseas that need to be wrapped and posted asap.
A cherry on the Cake of Busyness is my date with ink next week and MrBs birthday on the next day (not related in any way). The lollipops (sugar free) have been purchased for the first event (apparently sweets are needed to not pass out) and the second event has been sorted as well. Whew :|
All of the above means not seeing the kids much :(, letting them eat lasagna several days in a row (MrB made a big batch on Sunday) and hoping Oskar does his reading and his homework every night without much supervision :|
Despite feeling a bit frantic at times, I think in general I’m doing ok – I have written to-do lists for myself, delegated lunch prep to MrB (I leave before 6am for CrossFit) and homework supervision to mom (this will involve mainly hassling as she can’t really help due to the language issue).
Whew. I should be able to catch my breath on the weekend of 15th and 16th – these days are totally blank in my calendar :)
