Day 202: Kindergarten, a lot of administrative running around, tennis

Yesterday was a pretty busy day. I hardly stopped, and on top of a poor night's sleep, I was pretty exhausted by the end of the day.

I started the day with a yoga class, because a few extraordinary things had popped up on my schedule, meaning this was the only time I could get to a class this week. It was a beginner's class, but it was nice to have a slower pace for a change, and an excellent way to start the day off.

I drove to Sarah's place to pick up Zoe and take her to Kindergarten, and made a bad choice for the route, and the traffic was particularly bad, and we got to Kindergarten a bit later than normal.

After I dropped Zoe off, I headed straight to the post office to get some passport photos for the application for my certificate of registration. I also noticed that they now had some post office boxes available (I was a bit miffed because I'd been actively discouraged from putting my name down for one earlier in the year because of the purported length of the wait list). I discovered that one does not simply open a PO box in the name of a business, one needs letters of authority and print outs of ABNs and whatnot, so after I got my passport photos and made a few other impulse purchases (USB speakers for $1.99?!) I headed back home to gather the other documentation I needed.

By the time I'd done that and a few other bits and pieces at home, it was time to pop back to get my yoga teacher to certify my photos. Then I headed into the city to lodge the application in person. I should get the piece of paper in 6 weeks or so.

Then I swung past the post office to complete my PO box application (successfully this time) and grab some lunch, and update my mailing address with the bank. By the time I'd done all that, I had enough time to swing past home to grab Zoe's tennis racquet and a snack for her and head to Kindergarten to pick her up.

Today's tennis class went much better. Giving her a snack before the class started was definitely the way to go. She'd also eaten a good lunch, which would have helped. I just need to remember to get her to go to the toilet, then she should be all good for an interruption-free class.

I dropped Zoe directly back to Sarah after tennis class today, and then swung by OfficeWorks to pick up some stationery on the way home.
