Dear heaven, where did the weekend go?
I couldn't tell you what I did the last 48 hours, but I can tell you that I'm exhausted.
We did go house hunting. I think last month it occured to me that I would have to register Amara for kindergarten come January. And I FREAKED out. Our current school district is not very desirable. I love the house I'm in, but am I willing to spend money for Catholic school just to stay in our home? See, we're not as lucky as you Canadians with a good education system!
I don't think we'll ever find our dream house. Considering Dad2Amara is an architect, we could just build a house but trying to find a lot we can afford in a good school district is next to impossible. All the quaint century homes I like need a ton of work...more restoration and renovation than Mom2Amara has time for. And all the cookie cutter homes builders are offering make me seriously want to vomit. But I'll keep you updated on our search.
today's good:OMG, I finally went to my design-your-own-purse party and I'm stoked about my purse! Mine will be similar to something like this. The style is the same, and I actually did choose the apples but not with red, although now I wish I had!
today's bad: I am now without child care during the week. It's no secret I tend to differ with Grandma2Amara on how to raise my child, and I kinda hit breaking point last week. So now I am on the hunt for a child care solution. Any suggestions?
