My week: what is it with bloody men?????

wet-cat

I’m actually going to start with Friday and work backwards because I have post-traumatic stress about it …

I left early for work and texted Husband from the bus saying: “Can you pack a light jacket for the eldest … is a bit chilly”

He missed the message and replied at 9.03am with: “Not as chilly as she is going to be getting out of the pool without a towel.”

Eldest is in the middle of school swimming lessons.

I replied: “You are kidding?????”

He replied: “Ah, no.”

I went a bit mental at poor Kahla who has the misfortune of sharing an office with me. My rant involved a lot of “what is it with bloody men?????” Because I would have DONE something about her accidentally being at school swimming lessons without a towel.

But I calmly replied to husband (very easy to be calm in a text): “Shouldn’t we have tried to get one to her via a mum?”

He replied: “Ah, yes.”

I swore a bit more and felt TERRIBLE for the rest of the day imagining the poor shivering creature. When I picked her up from school I made lots of “you poor thing” noises.

And all she said was: “It was fine, I just stood under the hand dryers in the bathroom.”

There you go. Quite the resourceful creature and a whole day spent worrying over nothing.

OK, as for the rest of the week …

>> I noted that I appeared to be self-sabotaging after forgetting EVERYTHING and HATING myself for it. Read about my angst here … and rest assured nothing has changed. I have since gotten the wrong weekend for a friend’s birthday celebration in the Hunter Valley and subsequently had to RSVP negatively to a Girls Night In function then rescind five minutes later and say I would be coming after all …

>> I gave up Diet Coke (again). It’s been five days and counting … Cheery iVillage Facebook followers said happy stuff like: “Watch out for that sneaky 6 week mark when you think ‘yeah I’m cool I can just have one and I’ll be fine….” And “I felt like I had a tumor for 4 days then I was fine,”
