Its been a while since I last posted about this particular aspect of my life. To some extent I have been living by the 'if its not mentioned, its not there' philosophy. What a shame it doesn't work!!
Today has been a mare of a day. I had to go with my hubby to WINZ, which was a stressful enough scenario (had to time feeds, sleeps etc and actually leave the house to make the appointment on time - none of which are easy for me). We manage that, and then discover that they have written down the wrong date yet again and in fact we aren't due for another week! If I could have climbed over the desk, I would have quite happily clobbered HER into next week!!! So home we trot and hubby packs himself up and heads to Auckland (quite important as he is yet to find a job since April!) to look for work. But I was in such a state by then, with a very assertive baby on my hands. There were a few tears to be had.
I had my occupational therapist come round this afternoon, which was good, but I would have much rather buried myself in a hole as sit there and discuss 'strategies' to help with my stress levels. And I have to go to the doctor on Thursday, lucky me!
To top it all off, monkey was being a nightmare tonight, so I just left him to it and pottered at the back of the house. BAD, bad move. He completely destroyed his birth certificate, so tomorrow I need to get another one sorted out - can't organise a passport for him without a birth certificate. My word for today....GAH!!!!!
