I’m grumpy. Have a miserable cold and I was in bed at 7pm last night dosed up with NyQuil. Head feels stuffed with cotton wool and I am warm and feel fuzzy – but not the good warm and fuzzy:( This morning should have been more fun than it was. We headed off to the elementary school for our open morning to get ready for Monday when term starts. Last year I was hungover after my 40th – not good for meeting your kindergarten teacher for the first time – this year my senses were dulled due to cold medication…Not ideal for being bubbly and chatty and trying to remember parents’ names from the last time you met them. I’m sure they must all think I’m weird by now.
Plus I’ve been dealing with the transportation department for our school district. Lots of issues regarding bus drivers, times and routes – and somehow I managed to be volunteered as ‘bus mom’ for this year. I’ll be passing that baton on next year for sure:) So 20 or so calls placed with the Superintendent and the Director of transportation and guess how many returned calls – yup – zero. Useless. Not looking forward to that 6.44am bus stop on Monday.
Also Hugh is off today for ‘teacher work day’ so I am parenting 2 hyper children, solo, with a cold…brilliant. Tempted to sit them in front of Disney all day while I drown my sorrows online shopping…but no supermom here has agreed to take them to the pool…madness, sheer utter insanity – someone cart me away now.
Anyway tried to dress the part of the uber cool, urban mom this morning and probably ended up looking like mutton though I did the mutton test with MM and he passed me. Anyway as I said all the other parents probably think I’m weird anyway by now:) So I am wearing my favorite Zara cargo pants and a Zara top bought in the sale, with Tory Burch black patent Eddie flats and a necklace from H&M.
Wish me luck at the pool!:)
