Miscellaneous Ramblings

Only 1 day and I will be another year older!
It won't be anything special as we have school to do, hubby won't be home till night then he has to go out to a soccer game in the city, and hubby has hidden the presents and neither the kids or I know where they are.
Apart from that, the house is starting to look good. Miscellaneous things are begining to find homes, keeping the white tiles white is becoming easier now that I have worked out how to use the steam mop and found an extension cable, etc etc.
School work is being a struggle though. Miranda is going well with hers, though Jadeen just can't concentrate with hers. She is smart and picks up things easily but is lazy and wants me to 'help' her with it all when she has shown she is quite competant with certain work on her own. I have slowed things down a little, in order to fit in all the extra stuff that has happened lately (insurance issues and fish tank issues). I guess we shall see how tomorrow goes and maybe we will find time for some art & craft this week.

On mothers day I received a huge canvas, I am still trying to work out what to put on it. I have plenty of ideas, not enough time and hopefully enough paint.
I also want to redo the kitchen table.
We bought the kitchen table about 8-9 years ago and it was a plain wooden table. I had once painted a chess board onto it, then cleaned it off and painted it all black with little pink butterflies (and butterfly trails) on it. It was called 'erratic butterfly flight'. Now I have some fairy posters, a heap of miscellaneous household paints (from trying to touch up the previous place) and some varnish. I want to try and incorporate those onto the table but am yet to find a time.
On top of all that I have a undecorated box I want to paint and decorate but haven't yet found the time.

I think I am underpaid and am due long service leave. I don't think the government is going to pay up though. Maybe they are waiting for me to have worked 20 years instead of 10.

Now that I have had my 5 minutes to myself, it is time to go make dinner, do the dishes and try to get the kids to bed so that I can watch 'LOST' at 8.30pm.

Hmm, maybe I will take another 5 minutes, until I hear the kids complaining that they are hungry.
