Where Im At

Posted on April 9, 2009. Filed under: Uncategorized |

On Friday and Saturday I delivered 370 catalogues with very little breaks throughtout the day.  I was pooped!!!!

Then on Monday I collected them all back in.  Again I was pooped!!!

Wasnt too bad nor too good a week order wise.

Yesterday was a fun day.  My course Ive been doing for the last term (10 weeks) finished.  I feel stronger and more aware of the signs of abuse and can and have helped others though what I have learnt.  With it being the last day yesterday we had a special morning tea/lunch.  We got certificates and a little candle each.  We celebrated, we cheered and hugged each other and generally had a wonderful time together.  I have made some good friends through it.  Other woman whom have been in similar situations to me.

In a couple of weeks time after the holidays (2 weeks starting tomorrow) Im going to do another course.  I will probably connect with some of the same women.  This one is about being assertive and managing anger without violence.  Something that did come out in the middle of the course Ive just finished was grief and anger.  I felt the ex had stripped me of my self confidence.  I am getting that back but some of those feelings were intense.

Another thing that I plan to do next term is get back into home schooling in a more regular, consistent and better fashion.  This term was about us holistically, recovering after the break up,  next term is about getting back into home schooling like we did last year.  However this time God is our headmaster.

Roll on school hols.  Roll on and over the mediation (sorting out custody of D3)  on the 15th please do pray or think of me.  Its a bit scary.  Only about another week till my dream, goal and action plan comes to fulfillment I cant wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I Have a Dream, I Have a Plan, An Action Goal . . .

to help me cope with anything

I believe angels

– but these angels are a different

type of one

A couple of nights ago I was sitting in front of the TV watching the late news.  I was thinking over some things Tracy and I had talked about during the day.  She thinks I need to get some me time (away from B13).  I dont agree with her and thats ok 🙂  She loves me unconditionally.

In this case the angel is a metaphor to me for a holiday 🙂

My dream, plan, goal is too try to save up some money (I may try to get some more part time work) and save up and go and visit my sister with the boys.  I havent seen her in such a long time.  Years and years.  She lives in the BOP.  Up North.  I have decided it would be neat to surprise her.  She doesnt read my blog.  I would love to turn up on her doorstep and say Hi sis 🙂

She has a very large family and I have decided it would make it more of a holiday if we stayed here. Their tariff isnt too bad.  We would stay for 3 or 4 nights.  The flexiblity of home schooling means we could go on a Monday and come back on a Friday morning.

As the lyrics  that I sang loads of this morning say:-

[I] can take the future even if [I] fail – this dream, plan, goal gives me a purpose and even if it doesnt come about because of $$ or lack of.  I will still be focusing on the future rather than dwelling in the present.   I feel like Ive been a bit bogged down – no more!!!

I believe this dream, plan and goal will bring me up when Im down 🙂  I will be able to push through the darkness and take another step towards my destination.

My Saturday

Posted on February 22, 2009. Filed under: Uncategorized |

After a restless night B13 woke me up at 6am.  I had to go and help him with his paperruns.  Both of our bikes are broken.  Hes going to take one of them to the bike shop on Monday. D3 is spending the weekend with his dad.

After we had finished them off we came home and had bacon & eggs for breakie.  Soon after breakfast I dragged took B13 out to a nearby street to collect $$ for Relay 4 Life.  Which hes going to take part in on the 7th and 8th of March.  Hes going to be doing his part at 5am.  If he can wake up.  He will have walk around a track for an hour.  We did reallly well 🙂  collecting the $$.  Just before we finished the stree we popped into a friend from church who lives on this street and refreshed on cold cold water from his fridge.  It was HOT!!!! outside.

After we had finished popped around the corner to see the beautiful loving supportive Tracey.  I am so blessed to have a friend like her.

In the afternoon B13 and I went to see Despereaux.  The ex was going to take him but then copped out.  I was pissed off about that.  I knew hed do that.  Still me made.  It was an ok movie.  We snacked on lollies and popcorn which we always buy beforehand at the supermarket.  Threatre food is always too expensive!!!


After the movie it was time for more walking.  We went and picked up my catologues from where I delievered them on Thursday and Friday morning  for my part time job 🙂

B13 cooked dinner when we got home and then we watched TV and settled down for an early night.
