Still yuck

Been up since 4.30 *sigh*
Hope this bug clears soon, still feeling queasy, but not as bad as yesterday.

Damien is feeling sick now, has taken today off work, will probably need tomorrow as well.
Bugger of the thing is that he doesn't get sick leave yet as he hasnt been working there long enough :(

I'm so jealous of him too, he gets to rest and sleep when he wants, but I can't do that, I have to look after Lauren. *whinge complain*

Firstly, Damien & I went and saw Pirates of the Caribbean -Dead Man's Chest today .. LOVED it!! Was so much fun :D :D

Lauren had a shower by herself tonight hehe, well Damien leaned in an washed her.
She asked me for a shower, and I didnt feel like getting in with her, so she had a ball in there by herself, she has only had one shower in the last year or so, with Damien last week.
She kicked & screamed when it was time to get out though ;)

Another week

Here we are at Monday again, however did this happen?!

We had a good weekend :) On saturday afternoon we went out ot the local botanical gardens they had an orchestra performing from 2-3, it was so nice to get out in the fresh air & sunshine, and listen to (mostly) good music :) Lauren stayed with us for maybe 15min listening, and then had enough, so we tag-teamed in chasing after her, she had a grand time walking around the gardens :) We need to do things like that more often, Damien was chuffed cause they played startrek & starwars music hehe

Didnt get any photos as batteries were flat, I need to get some more spares.

Got a heap of housework done on sunday as again the ILs were coming down on their way to the GC. So it looks like we will need to be out of here beginning -mid october. So best start packing!!
Might start sorting that spare room out first, so much crap in those cupboards, we have to decide what we are going to take up the coast with us, and what we are going to put into storage.

Looks like we will only have room for one computer up the coast, which will mean I will have limited time on it, which might actually be a good thing, might get some study and stuff done.

So today I aim to be productive. Yes .. I will!

Does my housework get so out of hand?
My list for today which I WILL finish!!!!
WOOOHOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! I will mop when Miss L goes to sleep, and she *will* go to sleep, she really needs it when she is sick, so might have to resort to taking her for a drive. Yayayayayay, it feels so good to get that stuff done, the house really needs a DEEP clean, but heck its being knocked down in 3 months whats the point ;)

  • Tidy study, put away clean laundry on floor
  • Clean bathrooms Just a surface clean
  • Tidy Laurens room, put away clean nappies on the floor, change the sheets on her bed
  • Tidy bedroom, change the sheets on our bedEven hung doona & blanket on line to air in sunshine
  • Tidy kitchen, do dishes, pick up the STUFF that is all over the floor
  • Tidy dining room, pick up the STUFF all over the floor, make it so you can actually see the dining table
  • Tidy lounge room .. again pick up the STUFF all over the floor
  • Vacumn all carpets & tiles
  • Mop all tiles
There! That should be achievable .. right?? First thing I need to do it get off this soulsucker!

I did everything on the list in the previous post, ILs came down yesterday, hence the list ;)

Ok briefly
We live in this house owned by ILs, we rent from them really cheaply. Its a fairly old house with some structural problems. They are going to demolish it and build a new house on the LOT for us to live in, with an area for them to live in (with bathroom, kitchenette etc) as FIL works in brisbane a fair bit, and at the moment it commuting to & From the Sunshine Coast every day.
THis is all good, very excited about new house.. not so excited about moving in with them for 7+ months .. it will be very helpful in saving money etc etc, but eeek!
I think we need to give it at least 3 months, if we really hate it, we will find somewher cheap to rent.

Oh and this is all happening in October, so I am going to have to start sorting & packing soon as I have a lot of crap hehe

To finish off some photos of Lauren *gasp* no way!
