Yes, I am more settled now. With the car back, my new sofa in, and my new driving schedule finalised.
After 20 days I am back to driving my car again, and it feels good. But it's funny, after 20 days I had forgotten where the ignition is, that the lights were not auto on, nor the doors auto lock, the location of the hazard light, etc. I had to re-orientate myself coz I had gotten too used to the husband's car!!
Also, my new sofa arrived. The old one was getting quite tatty so we decided to change it. And it took a month! And this time it's a RED sofa - auspicious for the new year!! Well, we couldnt decide on the colour. I wanted the usual boring black -(goes with everything!), hubby wanted a white one (which I violently objected to as it would be black even before the week is up with those kids around!) and the oldest wanted a mustard or orange one! Well we compromised and settled on the red. The display set was a white one, and we took the risk and opted for it. Now that it has been delivered, we are so pleased with it, coz it looks really good, and it makes our home less boring, esp with the black marble tiles!1
As for the new driving schedule - it SUCKS (please pardon the language!). Why? Because I never get home before 5pm EVERYDAY! Previously when my oldest had CCA in school, she would finish after 5 and hubby would pick her home. Now with a change in school timings, (short days are days where she has CCA and 3rd language and finishes between 4.45 and 7pm, and long days aren't that long. So I end up having to pick her everyday! Coupled with D and N finishing at different times on Mondays and Tuesdays, I am making 4 trips just for school each day, and that is not counting mandarin classes, tuition for my son and music lessons for the two girls. And my day starts earlier too sending the oldest to school everyday whereas the hubby sends the younger two!
I feel so tired just writing about it so you can imagine what it is like at the end of each day. Anyway, it's good that now I know what my schedule is, I can prep for it. Mentally I prepare myself for the worst and everything else will come out better :)
The weekend is almost here. yoohoo!!
