Toy trains and wooden tracks were strewn about on the living room floor. The couch cushions we stacked precariously to make a little cubby house, or as Daniel likes to call it, a “bug house.” A big plastic truck sat in the middle of the hallway. Daniel’s pants were laying on the playroom floor (he likes to take them off). Dishes were piled on the kitchen bench. I only do them once per day, and I hadn’t and that time hadn’t come yet. Crumbs covered parts of the dining table because I didn’t have time to wipe them up before taking Hannah to school.
At least I was dressed properly when the Telstra guy unexpectedly knocked on my door today though. Not like the time the mailman knocked on the door when I was brushing my teeth and only wearing a towel. TPG did say that someone would come today, but then we called Optus, and requested to switch carriers. I assumed the Telstra guy wouldn’t come. Even if he did, I didn’t expect him to come inside. How embarrassing. Normally it wouldn’t be so bad, but Daniel has bronchitis and wasn’t at daycare today. Or yesterday. He only goes two days a week. I let him watch movies all day and even put the train stuff in the living room. I normally don’t let them bring toys in there. That’s what the play room (a.k.a. the dining room) is for.
Today was his second day at home all day, and he was feeling much better. Yesterday he sat on the couch pretty much all day feeling pretty miserable and coughing lots, but today he was jumping around, dumping out toy buckets, making messes, and getting stir crazy in general. I couldn’t play with him very much though because I have to keep up with my uni work. The two days that he normally goes to daycare, I do my university stuff. If I don’t, I’ll fall behind, and there’s no way I’ll be able to catch up. Not with chemistry.
Needless to say, it was kind of embarrassing letting someone in the house when we were sitting on the couch watching a movie in the middle of the morning (I was watching my lecture on my computer. Daniel was watching a movie as he jumped on the couch and spread trains all over the floor) while the house is a bomb. Oh well, we have internet now, so I don’t care.
