Life is not normal at the moment.
It’s all topsy turvy.
We do school from Friday through to Monday
and then, on Tuesday through Thursday,
I babysit my two year old niece,
take care of two family members
– their housework, cooking, shopping, doctors appointments and errands –
plus do various and numerous errands for my parents who are stuck in Melbourne,
after an unforeseen illness, which set off this course of events.
Last week, I did a full weekly grocery shop, three times, all on the same day, plus three hours of driving.
That’s just not normal.
Next week, I get to do the same thing again, with toddler in tow this time, and a ‘sit and wait your turn’ x-ray visit thrown in for good measure.
That’s really not normal.
Oh ‘Normal’, how I miss you.
Where’s the chocolate?!!
