School Days Are (Almost) Here Again!

In 2 days time, Emily, my oldest, starts Kindergarten! However, with the move this weekend, I have had little-to-no time to do school shopping. Sure, I've picked her up a backpack and a "first day" outfit. But I still have things to get her, and with time running out before Thursday, I need to get my backside in gear.

I had planned to go today with Emily after her trip to the dentist for 2 cavity fillings, however, my mother who usually is here by this time, decided that she is coming over later today, since she is staying the night. This is so that I can go to the movies on base and relax for a couple hours with friends. Her not coming earlier sucks for two reasons:

1. I have to take Kaity to the dentist, which I did not want to do because she will distract me form keeping Emily calm, and...
2. I have to take Kaity shopping afterwards, which will totally suck because it will be distracting to have to watch her when I am trying to bargain shop and find Em's size for things.

The real problem with Mom coming later is I didn't find this out until about an hour ago, when I was calling to find out what time she wanted me to pick her up. This of course, has put a crink in my plans...Sure I can go tomorrow, but I hate having to cut it so close...Not to mention I already have cleaning the old house on the agenda for tomorrow morning...Yet again, my schedule will have to be changed. I hate that!

Well I should go. I am gonna get the kids lunch, get Em to brush her teeth, and head to the dentist...After I beat them for driving me insane while trying to get ONE blog entry in 3 days!

....And even more fun times? Blogger is being a pain in the ass, and not loading pictures for some bloody stupid reason...Will my torment never end???

Probably not. On her first day of school, it's going to be a little gut-wrenching.

Chana said...

How fast kids grow up. Once they were just babies and now they're going to school.
Just passing by from Dr. John.

Catch said...

Dr John sent me...Cissa wait till they are older!!! THEN they will drive you nuts! lol. I can read your blog now...is it ok if I link to it?

Dr. Cissa Fireheart said...

Phoenix- gut wrnching for who? me or her? I'll be having a party...a cleaning party of the old house hehe

Chana - the movie was hilarious. Kevin Smith Rocks. Life is busy, but it makes time pass by quicker while Hubby is away...

Friday's Child - it's scary how fast they grow. I can't belive I have a Kindergartener....I still feel like I am in high school sometimes!

Catch - absolutely you can link me! I know it will get worse as they get older...but by then they will be more self-sufficient, and that will be easier for me in some ways. I look forward to not having to pick them up and tie theri shoes, get them dressed, etc.

I remeber how hard it was to take the two boys with me for dr. appointments, when they were young, and shopping was no picnic either. I am feeling sorry for you. The bright side is if you survive you will have a night out tonight.

Once when Betty was called for jury duty I sat in the balconay and held a squalling Peter. The judge said" whose kid is that" and excused her. Being a parent has tasks that never end.Nor do problems with blogger for that matter.
