Funny you should ask................

Its been a bit of a funny week for me, coming to the realisation that I really don't have that much time left for me to continue on my baby making dream. The one thing I do know for sure is that I need to be at my best, health and fitness wise if it is ever to work. I know I hear allot of 'it's OK about being big, I've known heaps for women who are bigger than you that fall pregnant easy', the fact is I am not one of these women. I am the only one in control of my future. I am going to do training for infant adoption but I CAN NOT give up the hope that I can have my own baby. So the plan for me is to do as much exercise that I can possibly manage with the ailments that I have and not create anymore.

So far I have locked the dogs (also known as my babies) from our room at night so that I can get a restful night sleep. It also appears to my Osteo that some of my issue with my wrist may be the way I have been sleeping since I have had to share the bed with the babies and I am vying for room. I am known to sleep with my hands above my head and sometimes under my head. Girls got to put them somewhere and there is nowhere on the actual bed. the osteo believes I could be causing some stress to my wrist by twisting it and putting pressure on it over night. As it is always sore first thing in the morning. So far so good except when you don't except that you have limitations and try to pour 8 kilos of dog food into a container using 1 hand, the sore one! OK may have been stupid and I may have to go back to the Osteo before my 3 week appointment to have the ligaments put back to where they should be but hey, someones got to do it right?

I must admit I had a melt down with Dazza the other week and set up some ground rules for the house and so far my plan is working. I told him that I can not do all this on my own, I need help, so the rules are like this:
  1. If I cook, he washes the dishes - that's every night
  2. I do the washing and ironing, therefore he must sweep, vacuum (3 times a week) and wash the floor (once a week)
  3. He must clean the bathroom sink after using it - I clean the rest of the bathroom
  4. He wanted the new fur baby, he is to feed all the dogs, morning and night
  5. I feed the cats - morning and night
  6. He takes the bins out - when I tell him - otherwise no bins out because he forgets!

This is it so far, but he is letting me add to it all the time. it actually looks Dazza heavy but I don't mind.

I have been going through my 'To Good To Be True' cook books and think that I really need to be making a plan. Money all of a sudden is tight again but I'm not letting it faze me. It's funny my star's advised that 'Credit cards are not free money, you do know this, don't you?' I find it really funny because in the past I used to think of it as free money hence why we have always been in bad debt. At the moment we do not have any credit cards but we are still paying them off.

Dazza is going to go for a new job AGAIN, but this one he thinks he really wants. It will be a supervisor role, they repair Connex trams, but the training is in Germany. He first said that he had found a really good job but I wouldn't let him apply because he would have to go to Germany for training for 2 weeks. I told him I don't know why he would think that I wouldn't let him go, it would be a great chance to visit Germany, a country that we would never go on holidays. So he called the company and they seemed impressed, he was to send over his CV, which I did for him and they are still impressed. He will meet with them later this week so fingers crossed. Oh the only bad news for me is that he has now found out that the training will go for 6-8 weeks in Germany! For those who know me, this is disastrous for me as I can't sleep when he is not here. Last time it was when he worked nights, imagine how I will be with him out of the country!

Anywho, it's off to check on the banana cake in the oven.

I forgot to tell this story that happened yesterday.

I went to the laundromat early to clean my king size doona and on the way back noticed that our church and primary school had crime scene tape around it with 2 white vans backed up into the primary school yard. I thought straight away that someone had maybe topped themselves but later found out in the Tattslotto agency from the young girl working there (her father is fire brigade) that someone had planted a LIVE bomb in the church to go off today Sunday. The 2 white vans where the bomb squad disarming it. She knew because her father was called to the scene as a firey. It is ridiculous as I was considering going back to church this Saturday night. Do you think someone is trying to tell me something? Dazza wants to know who plants a bomb in a Catholic church? Obviously someone who is not Catholic or has a huge grudge against more than 1 person. Thankfully it was disarmed and no one ha heard about it at all.

Thanks Sue for your comment and offer of help... I'm not sure what else I can do to save energy now. I turn off all the lights and everything at the powerpoint when I remember. My biggest consumer of electricity is my hot water and my fridge... Not sure what you can do with either of these... Not much really I guess.

How are things Sue?

Have a great weekend
