Week in Review

Filed under: Home and Family,National Blog Posting Month,week in review — by my3boysandi @ 6:34 am





Dropped My Trier off at school drove over to where my current landlord lives. Finally found his house up some concrete steps. Gave the letter telling him of my ending the rental here to his wife who happened to be outside and asked her to give it to him please


Went to the supermarket and the Warehouse and packed my car up with boxes.




Brought some packing tape. Discovered how much of a mark up from the supermarket there is on such stuff!!! Let me tell you i didnt get it at the supermarket!!!

came home unpacked car and made a start packing did My Little Mans playroom and part of the kitchen/dining room


had an afternoon rest

Got My Trier from school seemed to have a 2nd wind and packed the linen cupboard up 🙂

Also put some more stuff on Trademe






took some papers around to our new landlord

posted a parcel off I sold some kiddies sandals on Trademe

Dropped off some school reports to the people doing My Triers assessment they want to see Mr Wonderful and I on Thursday

Packed some more boxes from the kitchen

I need more boxes!!!

Went and got some newpapers from a friend to wrap stuff up with

Although I was very tired I somehow got a second wind again and packed some more boxes until I ran out of them Must get some more tomorrow



While My Trier was at his private tutor this morning got some more boxes.

Then dropped him off at school and came home and packed them up

Mr Wonderful and I went and got the official assessment. My Trier does have mild ADHD. At the moment we are going to treat it though behaviour management. In the meeting it came out how much My Trier loves and adores Mr Wonderful as moving into together will be a wonderful thing for all of us. The physiologist was a bit concerned about my plans to home school My Trier next year till I informed her that the lack of socialization for home schooled children is just a myth.

My Trier has plenty of opportunities to mix with other children. With me being available so he does get led into peer pressure trouble.

Oh yes ive decided I am going to home school. Amongest everything else Im working and shall work on our exception to home school next year. My Trier is ok with this as he HATES school. It is very likely that My Little Man will go to daycare in the mornings so we can work without being interrupted. Im sure both boys will be happy and the little one might even become less clingy. Which will be good especially at places like church.


Anyway what else did I do today not alot of packing. But sorted out stuff like setting up meetings with the authorities, grocery shopping, got a rego for the car and sorted out my telephone line when we move. While I was and about I think God made use of me. I came out the post office and started walking in the wrong direction to the car. I thought oh well Ill go for a walk around the block to the car. Not long after making this decision an old blind man stopped me and asked me to help him with dialing a phone number in a telephone booth. He was a lovely old man. I was glad to be of service. Isnt God great 🙂

Also looked after the next door neighbours boys while she rushed her daughter to the doctors after she was biten by a white tail spider




I packed another box this morning

I feel like Ive packed everything I can till I can get into the spare room after this weekends garage sale and until the last weeks bits and pieces.

so instead washed some washing and hang it out to dry

sorted out what was in my big white storage box, packed some of it and threw out some of the contents


Mr Wonderful is having My Little Night for the night so I can garage sale again tomorrow




We had another garage sale and it was very worthwhile again

Im going to do it one more time next Saturday

Mr Wonderful sent me these photos of My Little Man enjoying himself last night at his house (he lives with his parents at the mo)

Helping his Nanny (Mr Wonderfuls mum)


Mr Wonderful had to go to the toilet in the middle of dinner when he got back My Little Man was eating his meat on the bone



Spent the afternoon with Mr Wonderful here at home when he brought My Little Man home


Church ok My Little Man joined in with the older kids and draw on a fish. He also drew on the other side of the paper too.

I find church very challenging with him as he wont play in the little kids playroom without me of his daddy

Daddy didnt go to church with us today

So he needs me there with him 😦

I remind myself it will get better one day

This avo My Trier is at his best friend from church’s house. His mums friend is taking the boys to youth group so I dont have to pick My Trier up till 8pm

Packed some more boxes sold some stuff I didnt need

went for a walk

After about 3 months of good walking I gave it up yet again

I havent walked this month except for 3 1/2 hours

If I look at this positively I can say I am beginning to miss it already so I suppose thats something



  1. What a busy week! Moving is daunting but it sounds like you’ve got a lot done. Looks like things are shaping up for home school next year!

  4. Wow, what a ton of packing you’ve done already!! What a busy life you’ve got right now!!
    I’m glad you made a decision for home schooling, you’ve been on my mind lately. A friends daughter is totally off the rails, she’s being led by friends and I was thinking a lot about how it’s so sad to watch that.

  9. Moving is never fun – I don’t envy you right now 🙂 That’s mainly because I’m still unpacking from our last move 😉 Hahahaha
