It's Thursday already................what happened to Wednesday

Yesterday was one of those days when I didn't seem to get much done but felt like I was busy all day, as I am sure we have all had days like that. It started when Kathy arrived to drop off Summer and then about an hour or so later my sister Sandra turned up to drop off Temika when she dropped her step son Zac at school. As it turned out Ed had to go and have a chat with the principal as Zac was having some kind of trouble at school.

Oh yeah before Sandra got here Natasha turned up to wash her car, she doesn't have anywhere to wash it at her place.

Just as Sandy & Ed were leaving mum arrived for us to go to the nursing home, then Temika decided to be difficult and not want to get into the car to go to the nursing home as we were dealing with Temika, Tim arrived home from work . Finally we were able to get going and went out to see nan, who was looking ok, not great but not too bad either.  

Yesterday I didn't get to have a nap, as when Kathy had left with Summer I was busy doing a bit of housework and then I had a bath and all in all just ran out of time, if I want to have a nap after Kathy picks up Summer I have to go straight to bed when she leaves but usually I am busy doing other things I didn’t get around to doing during the day.

This morning I woke just as Kathy was arriving to drop off Summer and I have already managed to a load of washing and pegged it out to dry, while Summer is napping I would love to vacuum but it would make too much noise and wake her and I don’t want that, so I am writing this instead.

Also yesterday Kelli & Daemon left in fact they left at around 4am, Jono picked them up and drove them to the airport, yeah, you read that right the airport, they, have gone to visit her sister Kirsty in Queensland for around 3.5 weeks.

Kelli said that Daemon slept the whole flight there which was good she was a little worried about how he would handle the flight and if his ears popping would upset him but nope, he was good.

Ok Summer has woken up and I have now vacuumed out, so the floor is looking much better, Summer did start to cry a bit while I was vacuuming out but she is ok now.

Oh yeah this morning I received a delivery of 5 boxes of gifts that I have bought from Chrisco and Hamper King so now I am expecting Tim to have something to say about all that I have bought but the gifts make up 90% of Christmas shopping and he likes that I am not asking for money to buy gifts.

Speaking of Queensland, tomorrow, Tim and I will be borrowing my parent’s motor home and be setting off for a trip to Queensland ourselves.  I will have to pack some clothes and stuff to take with us this afternoon.  
We are only going for a few days as Tim only has 5 days off work and he wants to go and visit his cousin who lives around Brisbane.

We were thinking about going to Dreamworld but it is going to cost us $150 for the two of us to get in and Tim was a little put off by the price so I said we didn't have to go there.
