This morning I read Miss Cinders from Saturday Morning Ogre Mum and it really made me think about exactly where I am at this moment, so, while she has committed to make this a weekly post, I have said I will try for fortnightly, monthly or whenever I remember !!
Thinking about – whyI can't get the tax accounts to balance - they shouldn't be this hard.
Feeling - sad because I have had about 2-3 really good weeks where I have felt like I am coping so well. Yesterday it felt like it all came crashing down on me. I don't know if it was because we had such a great weekend or knowing that, sometime soon, A will be leaving for Townsville.
Watching - my weight on the scales daily and trying not to get despondent because the scales aren't moving despite having cut out sugar, wheat and dairy. I know it is due to the medication that I am taking that I am slowly weaning myself off, except for the next two weeks I have said I will continue with the same dosage as it looks like we may be having a 21st party for K after all and, with less than two weeks until D-Day, and A away (and, at this stage, we don't even know if he will be able to come home for her birthday) I don't think I can be cutting down without sending myself over the edge.
Making me happy - that the whole menopause thing seems to be coming under control. Tackling one problem at a time was certainly the right way to go about it.
Listening to – I would be listening to meditation CD's if I had a CD player that worked
Reading – Bridget Jones' Diary - a light, entertaining read that I took away with me on the weekend but didn't get to finish while we were away
Eating – new paleo recipes that I have found that are so yummy - why did I not do this sooner ?
Following – GC Suns as they continue on their journey, hopefully with more wins this year.
Looking forward to - 13th May when the 21st will be over.
Outraged by - the deficite that the government is now declaring.
Planning for – a rushed 21st party.
Waiting for – to hear exactly when A is leaving for Townsville. I am trying so hard to be flexible about this, and I know it isn't his fault, but honestly, they couldn't organise a p*ss up in a brewery if their lives depended on it. He has already been up there last week for 3 days. He came home because they had authorised his leave before they decided to send him up there. He was supposed to go back yesterday - the ute which was supposed to be ready on Friday wasn't ready yesterday - it's supposed to be ready today - and, depending on what time it is ready (IF it is ready) will determine whether he leaves today or tomorrow, or if the ute isn't ready today, then who knows when he will leave. In the meantime the work up there is piling up and he is fluffing around with stuff down here. His boss is away until lunch time today (on a boat cruise) so isn't contactable to find out, if he goes to Townsville now, can we fly him home on 9th and then back on 13th - so the longer we have to wait on that answer the more expensive the tickets are getting. I don't do patience very well and this is no exception !!!!!
And, because it is Tuesday, I'm linking in with Essentially Jess for #IBOT.
TFTD : One of the most freeing things we learn in life is that we don’t have to like everyone, everyone doesn’t have to like us, and that’s OK.
