Todays Turn

Hey Hows it going ? I hope life is treating you well !!

Me ?  Well , things are as usual. My days pretty much consist of taking kids to school and Kindy and doing the chores around our home. I spend a bit of time in front of the computer as well. I have a few projects in progress.  Have you been enjoying the Olympics ? I wasn’t really that excited before  it all started but I have been enjoying it.

Today I had my 2nd turn this month which I suppose isn’t too bad.  My daughter and I were on the way to school to bring my son home. We are very lucky that it isn’t even 5 minutes walk away. I don’t think we realised how good it would be when we moved here a few years ago. I can’t wait until next year with both kids at school.

Anyway, back to my turn. We had pretty much got to school and my daughter saw a girl from her Kindy. They smiled at each other, kinda said hello. Both myself and the daughters mother noticed. Anyway, just as this happened, I felt a wee bit funny. As with 90 % ( maybe even more ) of my turns these days, I know it is happening. I think we wandered about school briefly. I must have been a bit out of it, a bit lost. But my son said I was at his classroom as usual, like I am everyday. I can’t remember that. I can’t remember the walk home either.

As I said, I know when most of my turns are going to happen. I think when I say to my wife that I feel like I’m going to have a turn, doing that scares it away. Sound a bit odd  ?

So, the rest of the afternoon wasn’t much fun.  I never really enjoy the afternoons  that much .  I got dinner ready and sorted out the days washing.   I always look forward to my wife getting home . The main thing that used to bore me was the thought of entertaining the kids in the afternoons. Maybe I worried about it to much. They pretty much entertain themselves these days.  They don’t sit and watch T.V in the afternoons. They do this in the morning though. It fills in the hour or so before it’s time to leave.

 

So, that’s today and things at the moment.

Not The Best Day

I didn’t have the best day yesterday. It was the usual start. My wife left at about 7:15 for her 20-30 minute drive to work. Its always about then that the kids are sitting at the table eating their breakfast. I always have to tell them to be quiet, carry on eating , etc. Every day is the same. It can be pretty frustrating. So, it was that sort of morning, plus I had quite a few other things running through my head.

So, at 7:30- 8 am , it’s always brush teeth time. It’s always about 8:30 that we leave for our walk to school and then kindy.  At about 7:30 or so, the doorbell went. I went and answered the door. There was a Courier Man there with a parcel for us. I then remembered that he was going to be coming. .  But, that is the last I can remember of him.

Next thing I remember is walking along the foot path in my slippers. I eventually ended up back at home. The front door had been pushed towards been shut, but not completely. I went in and there was no one there.

So, I gave my wife a call. She said she was on her way home.  She also told me the kids were just down the street at my sons friends house. Sounds like I had taken off and the Courier Man was unable to stop me. My son asked the Courier Man to take them to his friends house. Well Done !! So, I got on my way there. Just as I got onto the street, our Neighbour arrived. So, him and I walked to their house. There were my kids !!

So, we came home again. Next thing ya know, about 8:30, my wife was home again. I wish she hadn’t come home for the day. I’m sure my parents could have helped us out. So, from there, she took our girl to kindy , and my son and I walked to school, which is not even 5 minutes walk away.

I rang the Courier Company and found out who had made the delivery. They told me so I personally rang the man and told him how grateful we were that he took care of the kids by taking them down the street.

So, I had a day with my wife at home. After lunch we ( including our daughter) went to the local shopping centre to do a couple of things.

So, frustrating for me !! Frustrating because it meant my wife missed a day at work. It just makes you feel bad because you messed everything up.

I felt ok this morning, and I was really. I was a little funny when I left kindy though. (after dropping my daughter there). I stood on the footpath and wondered how long I had until I had to be back, or some reason I was thinking I didn’t want to go to far.  One of the teachers came out to see whether I was ok. I said to her that it seems like there is several periods throughout the day, like there was when I was at school. EG: 6 one hour periods. At first I was dreaming I had to be back in a short time. But, I came right and continued on my way home. Apart from that, which only lasted a few minutes I suppose  I’ve been fine today.
