Funny Kind of few Weeks ...

It's been a funny kind of few week's here at home. By funny I mean that the girls and I have been really up and down with the emotions. Adam will be thanking his lucky star's he has missed it all.

So many drama's going on at the moment, my head is spinning and I really hope it's going to stop soon. The girl's are finding things really tricksey and stressful at both of their schools, this has been my main headache. I have had many conversations with teachers and meetings too, trying to work out a few issues and have more meetings to look forward to too.

Typical isn't it, the shit always hits the fan when Adam is away. Ad misses it all and I can even picture him sighing with relief and a little smirk on his face cause he has dodged another one!

My darling girls have been doing anything they can to avoid school. Not just the normal "I don't want to go" to school thing. It's much more intense, they are both very teary and sad and really dreading going to school everyday, that is every day!! In a way I don't blame them with the situation they are both in and I am now questioning whether I have them in the right schools or not. Not that there is anything wrong with these schools, we love these schools, it's just the circumstances have changed now.

There are plenty of other headaches but another one I have had is mainly the stories coming out of India from my dear husband. All the sad stories of the incredible poverty, crazy people waving machine guns in his face, water tanks on the Baldur been filled up with putrid water with dead rats in it, yep the boys have all been sick a few times and bloody Skype not working when we really need to talk to each other.

The past few weeks have been really tough though, normally I can cope fairly well and just get on with it. I guess we are in unknown waters at the moment so I'm tripping out just a bit. Not to worry though, we are getting back on track. Adam has been home for almost a week, can't believe it. Why is it that when he is away the time drags out and when he is home it seems to speed up? What's with that! 

The girls and I went to pick him up from Brisbane airport which was an adventure all on it's own. They both did great as we had an hour and a half wait till Daddy finally got through customs.

Jaimee was getting a little embarrassed that her sista set up camp on the floor while we waited. What ever makes the kid happy I say, so I just said to Jaimee "no one knows who we are so who cares"!! She was sort of ok with that.  

We moved from one side of the fence to the other to get just that bit closer to the doors trying to will Adam out. You wouldn't believe it but the little tv ran out of battery, "freak out", thank god for the big sista with an iPod.

First thing we had to do was stop at McDonalds so Adam could have his large big mac meal fix and Madison found a friend too.

We had a really late night, home by 10.45pm into bed about 12.30am, the girls were very excited to have their daddy home, me too. So after we got to check out all the treasures Ad had brought home from India we was ready for sleeping.

The next day Madison had it all planned out, she needed to fit in as much as she could with her dad just in case he went back to work. We took the Indy dog for a walk down to the park. Poor kid, wouldn't go anywhere near the play equipment as there were a lot of little people (under 5 year olds) there. So we sat and chatted to the ducks at the pond for awhile.

We then had to go op shopping, the kid is learning so fast. My little Madison was so desperate to get to the beach but we were all exhausted and the weather turned nasty. So we had a fair few meltdowns but that's ok.

Jaimee and her friend Connie, don't cha just love chics with scooters!

Love this Pic, Walking home!

It's so good to have Adam home! Even if he was a bit stinky from India :) Don't worry, the India smell is starting to wear off, haha!

We are heading off to Byron Bay tomorrow. A beach holiday for the girls, we are all so excited! Looking forward to some sunshine and a good book maybe even a glass of red.
