All I want to do is write. All I get time to do is work. 😦
It is coming towards the end of my first full month blogging. It has been a really intense month. Here’s a wrap up of some of the highlights and unfortunately the lowlights!
Good – I lost 2 kilos on my initial attempt at detoxing and healthy eating/living and have managed to keep it off 4 weeks later!
Bad – 3 days into detox I got sick and spent the last 2 weeks drowning in my own mucus – maybe that’s ugly ???
Ugly – Son No. 2 tells me he “might” have a problem with a prohibited substance – argh! That is definitely Ugly and any other descripitive word you can insert.
Good – I am finally rid of the mucus and can smell and taste my food again
Bad – I can now smell bad smells and taste bad things – having no sense of smell or taste came in handy when venturing into teenagers bedrooms.
Ugly – Having a total meltdown with Son No. 2 and screaming that I am going to go and smash my head on the driveway until I die – Parenting 101 – I was a champion that day! This was the day I stared at the edge.
Good – Realising the edge isn’t where I wanted to be and actually being able to back up from it.
Bad – Stephanie the cleaning fairy didn’t come two weeks in a row (public holidays) and being sick the house became feral – I mean feral. This didn’t help with the walk to the edge.
Ugly – teenagers’s bedrooms. I don’t need to say anything else. You can read my previous post on this if you dare. If you don’t have teenagers yet – you are in for a real treat.
Good – Stephanie the cleaning fairy finally came back and our home smelt sweet again and helped me back up from the edge.
Bad – she doesn’t clean the teenagers’ rooms – I don’t have the specialised insurance required for her to do this.
Ugly – Me having to get into those rooms and clean them up. There are just some things a mother shouldn’t have to pick up in a teenage boy’s bedroom. I’ll leave this to your fertile imaginations!
Amazing – My lovely children made sure I had a very special Mothers’ Day. They took me out for a picnic to a beautiful creek – it was really lovely. My girls bought me beautiful presents and gave me even more beautiful cards. Their words were very special.
AMAZINGLY GOOD – I have met some wonderful people on Twitter and through Blogging. I am truly surprised at this tight knit online community. They provide support, love, laughs, wit, occasional smut and good old fashion friendship.
Bad – I am struggling to come up with too many bads so this really should be classed as good. In fact I’m going to fill the rest of this blog with amazings.
AMAZING – my beautiful baby has returned – the feral who had been living in his body for the past 2 years has left and my boy is back.
AMAZING – I have learnt that if you have a teenager going off the rails, school is not necessarily the best place for him. Sometimes school can be the cause of it. Always think outside the square if the square doesn’t seem to be working for you.
AMAZING – he is not only back but he is happy. This is gold.
AMAZING – how supportive my Mike is when I really need him. This is also gold.
AMAZING – the edge seems an awfully long way away from here. This is pure gold.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone. Feel free to share some of the Amazings, Goods, Bads and downright Uglies of your past month.
