Brain, I command you to work!!!

Trying so hard here to stay on top of it all... It feels like the ground is crumbling under my feet.

Called the MCHN to reschedule Thursday's appointment, only to find that the appointment is actually TOMORROW! Ok, so no need to reschedule, per se. Only it makes tomorrow more busy again... Two things on tomorrow, two things on Thursday + shopping for Erik for the trip and packing because we're leaving the house at 6am on Friday...

Ari is very restless today, so here it is 12pm, and I'm still in my jimjams. Jayne is bringing Bryn and Sienna over in an hour, so I really need to take a shower and get dressed. I know I need to do this stuff, but my brain isn't working...

Thank the gods Sienna is coming over, Bryn will be so happy and they can play and keep each other company while I try to organise myself. Dave is home today, as he was yesterday, even though he's supposed to be finishing up at work this week (yesterday, actually, or today). There is some sort of infestation at working which needs fumigating, so he isn't able to go there to finish up. I wonder if Mercury is in retrograde at the moment, rofl, things seems to be going backwards, not forwards... Ok, just checked, and Mercury is not in retrograde atm, so can't blame that but HERE is a REALLY interesting article about Mercury retrograde which tells how MR mirrors an exact point in history when Mercury travelled the exact same path and similar events occurred. The 2009 MR mirrors the 1930 MR - which was, of course, the time of the Wall Street collapse and the beginning of the Great Depression...

Anyhoo, there is a prime example of how my brain is doing that irretating scattered thing right now...

Ok, better take a shower...

12 Things Happy People Do Differently - a self-reflection...

A few days ago a Facebook friend posted the above poster on her wall. I believe she got these points from this blog which she enjoys reading, and the bloggers on the Marc and Angel Hack Life blog derived their discussion of these points from this book, available on Amazon - you're welcome! I have to admit, I haven't read the blog or the book I've just mentioned but wanted my readers to have access to the sources of the poster for their own reflective purposes.
The New Year will be upon us in but a few days and I thought this a great opportunity to do a little personal assessment on how I'm playing the happy game. I'm often not very happy at all - I don't need to be happy all the time, let me just say that up front - I personally believe that life is a balancing act and those who seek euphoria often will also often feel desolation because in all things there must be balance. The great riches of the few on this planet come at the personal cost of the many as is …

The symbolism of elephants...

Just recently I've been seeing and noticing elephants everywhere!

A few weeks ago I saw the Samsung Elephant Ad, and watching that led me to watching a video with an elephant painting (seriously, you have to watch it to believe it!).

Then last night the boys told me they were having a free dress day at school to raise money for 'Mali the Elephant' - who turned out to be a paper maché statue which the children will paint and then show around the council before it comes back to the school to stand outside the performing arts room.

Then this morning I followed a link from Twitter to Toushka Lee's blog and read this post about an elephant orphanage in Sri Lanka.

This morning the Grumpy Old Man did another driving test and unfortunately didn't pass. We've booked his next test and are looking forward to that now. About ten minutes before he walked in the door I saw this poster on Facebook...


At the time, I didn't know if the Grumpy Old Man had been successful or …

Alone... And Stuff...

Do you ever just need to be alone?



As the boys are growing up, we have more times when the house is quiet. The youngest will be asleep. One will be reading, one will be playing on his computer with headphones on, one will be painting and there is stillness.

Sometimes, even that is not enough.

Sometimes I crave being alone, with no possibility of someone suddenly realising they have to tell me something important or ask me a question or even just crash about in the kitchen.

Sometimes I crave S P A C E, lots and lots of space, being able to walk from room to room without encountering another soul.

This is how I felt when I woke up this morning, so instead of getting ready for work, I decided to stay home. Get up, but not go anywhere, no hear the sound of my own voice, or anyone else's.

I think this might just be part of getting older. After a lifetime of chasing after other people and trying not to be alone, my mind and body is full of thoughts, experiences, feelings, and busy-ness …
