Man oh man, my work days are going by sooooo slowly lately. I worked on a big presentation my boss gave me the day to do and I finished it at 9.45 am. Umm ya. I’m a tad too fast on the computer for the older people. Lol

Anyway I’m moving next Saturday and half my house is not packed because ….here is my day
5.30-up, shower, get Trey’s breakfast, get him ready
6.50 out the door, bring him to daycare, go to work
8.30-4.30 work
Go get Trey at daycare, go home, make dinner, play with him, bathe him, get him to sleep in his .O.W.N bed. Ya fun. Tidy up and then it’s 9pm and I’m tired

Plus Thursday is his birthday so I have 24 cupcakes to make tonight or tomorrow plus 2 cakes to make for his party on Saturday (I hate store bought cakes so don’t suggest it-lol) I went and bought all his presents and the food and decorations and stuff on the weekend and the BBQ is at his dad’s since my place is upside down and Mikey has not helped at ALL!!!!!

He took a new shift at work from 3-11pm so he can’t go get Trey anymore from daycare and will not even be with him on his b-day and now his parents took night shifts too so when Mike is supposed to have him every 2nd weekend he can’t take him Friday night or Sat morning anymore since no one will be around.

I don’t know when I’m going to find the time to finish packing since my sitter is away this week. ARGH Monday is a holiday in Quebec so daycare is closed and he’s home with me, Has anyone tried to pack with a 2 yr old around? Ya not easy-lol I go on vacation for 2 weeks starting the 29th. I’m moving the 30th. Hopefully once everything is done, it will calm down a bit. I haven’t even had time to go to the gym in almost 2 weeks. Grrrrrrrrrr.

Ok that’s my rant for now. I could go on and on about Mikey and what a poop he is but I won’t. Wink

I got him a little tricycle, a diego activity center with crayons and stuff, 3 action figure villains from Spiderman (he loves them and knows all their names), a bowling set, some little cars, a spiderman and a diego t-shirt. My friend is getting him the car mat and some cars and another one is getting him a t-ball set. I will def post pics when I find time. Smile

And ya, I have to be out by the 30th because that's when I have my movers and the other guy is coming. meh

Wow!!! You sound like a busy woman! The good thing is from what .I know about you, you'll find a way to stomp through.

I hear you about finishing tasks at work and then having nothing to do. There are times .I would like to be paid by the job and not by the hour. I would have so much time off, and make good money!!!

It's sad when you have to have some one to take your child for just a night so that you can clean his room....LOL i have people take Mia for me just to take a shower and clean my home...it's sad.

Don't kill yourself tonight trying to get the whole house packed!! I hope things go smoothly for you though. Are you allowed to move things in before the 30th?
