First day. First entry. Why am I doing this? To see if I can maintain the discipline to write for one month and to begin to get back to daily writing with the vague thought that it will one day lead to actually writing something creative. A brain dead first day may not be the best start ever but that is ok. I am happy I have started. I am happy I remembered to start. This may be pure luck rather then good management but I will take what I can get! Final thought - so much harder then anticipated!
Today I slept in. I spent the morning in bed reading. I napped through one movie in the afternoon and then watched another movie. The girls were angels and played happily together all day. I ate yummy food. Lemon cheesecake. Chocolate omelette (which sounds odd but was strangely nice). I am thinking a nice glass of wine to finish off the night. Lazy day. A day of indulgence. Today felt like a holiday and it was fabulous! Tomorrow I am planning on being very constructive and after a day of rest it is actually exciting.
Argh! I can't believe I am writing this entry less then 8 hours after the last one! I am up early today, getting ready for a road trip and I don't know if I will get to use a computer again today. However I have followed the rules and I have slept in between writing yesterday's entry and today's. Maybe not as long as I would have liked to though. First learning experience gained this trip: get at least 10 hours sleep the night before your leave and finish packing before you go to bed. Wish me lots of luck!
We had such an amazing time down South visiting with the girls' great-grandparents. They are beginning to realise Nanna and Grandad are old and may not be with us forever. While I am sad in so many ways that they have worked this out, I am hoping it means even at this young age they will treasure the time they have with them. I am also loving the fact the girls love second-hand bookshops almost as much as I do. I can see this helping for a harmonious home for years to come! Like Mummy, like daughters.
I am thinking about "karma" at the moment, or as one of my friends put it "pass it forward". I just gave a friend a whole heap of clothes that are now to small for my youngest. They had to go somewhere and I was excited I had someone to give them to! Just got an email saying how much she appreciated it. She is a very new friend but she is one of those people who is always there to help out and I know she does that for everyone. It was nice to do something for her.
I went with my mother, (ex) mother-in-law and one of my friends to see "My Fair Lady" at a local theatre company. It was a great show. I had a couple of friends in their late teens come and baby-sit the girls. My rule is there can't be anymore baby-sitters then I have children otherwise it is a party at my house without me. The girls and the baby-sitters had a fabulous night. I love that these people value spending time with my girls and that they are real genuine friendships despite the age difference.
Usually I LOVE Fridays. I love the anticipation of it almost being the weekened. I love that we can wear jeans to work. Really what is there to not love? Today I had an awful day. I am not sure whether it felt better because it was a Friday (and everything is better on a Friday) or it was more upsetting because it was Friday and usually Fridays are an awesome day. I got back not very good results from some tests the doctor did and my car got broken into at work. This all made me sad.
