I’m having a moment….

…..I had an icky week, last week, and that’s putting it mildly!!

Minimal housework was done (I don’t just “clean” my house, I DETAIL it), no clothes were washed (well, it was raining) and the ones that were, weren’t folded or put away, dinners were bland and very uninteresting and I cried just about every day.

Varna’s Dad passed away, Silvia is undergoing her last bit of chemo, Zia Uliana is going in for surgery to correct her irregular heartbeat, Uncle Ron arrives in Brisbane to have tests before going for surgery.

Hmmmm, wonder why I was bawling like a nutter every day, especially when I dropped the kids off?????

But now that seems to have passed.

I’m getting photos developed today for the multitude of challenges and CC in the coming weeks.

I have this BTP item that is slowly (read : s-l-o-w-l-y—-) coming together in my head.

There are very few dirty clothes in the house.

I have the Paper Crafts Festival to look forward to this Saturday (all day with Zina – noice!!).

And Michael says I’m a much more relaxed person lately??!!! Don’t you just love husbands? They always see things that you don’t (unless it’s in the pantry or fridge or sock drawer…..)

AND THAT’S WHY I DIDN’T BLOG ALL LAST WEEK….. if I don’t feel good I don’t share – I HIDE and appear extremely vague to others. It’s a minor character flaw but I think it’s always been a survival tactic but from a long time ago, and it’s about time I grew up and dealt with things instead of hiding. (Note to self: ASK!!) Although, having said that, I did try to call 2 of my sisters when I was really low but neither were around!! Bloody typical.

On a lighter note, here is why I like to stay home and look after my family, so we can capture nutty moments like this:

Rainer wouldn’t wait for dinner so he grabbed the box of cereal and hid outside on the path leading to the clothesline. A little while later, Knucklehead (or was it Chingohead) the friendly possum arrived to clean the rest up.

I completely forgot to mention that Kerri and Leisa at SBC sent me a gift certificate to say Thanks for working on the DT. I always thought it was MY job to say THANKS to them for asking me and giving me such a cool chance to work with product I’d never choose in a pink fit!!! Lovely thought though. Spent it immediately…enough said.

Must do an Ali Update entry…she’s been a little slack lately…..working on another book??? Excuses, excuses, excuses…..

  1. I have days like this too:( and I have to talk myself into dealing with issues head on and not hiding away because that is just so much easier to do but actually sharing my feelings helps wonders and works…..especially if you have wonderful friends or family.Sounds like you have alot to deal with at the moment with your family, but always remember to work on yourself too:) it is easy to forget that you are important and put yourself last. So I hope this weekend at the Paper Fest you will let your hair down and have a bit of YOU time!Take CareBrenda
