The babies are finally asleep after a chocolate fuelled evening and late afternoon nap. We dropped our tall,lean manboy, D, off at my Aunt's to give
We had a few days away on the NSW Central Coast near a weedy fringed but serene lake. I didn't get much of a rest. I haven't water-skiied for 3-4 years but the boys did.The little terrors didn't stop and with a balcony to climb over , things to trash and a lake nearby I was on my toes literally but it was a change. They fell asleep in the boat.
I came home to over 130 plus posts in my Google reader and I just finished them all.Plus a few new updates today.
I promise I will catch up with you as soon as I get five
It took us 4 hours to pack for a three day trip. We got home last night .Today, we just through the unpacking after the trip stage of our too short holiday and then the Christmas and Boxing day mess we left behind on the 27th.
Well the DH did a lot of it. Three trestle tables and 20 chairs to pack away, rearrange furniture, washing, hanging it out,cleaning, washing the floor, and vacuuming. I 'd rather not mention the new toys
On a more serious note on the afternoon of the 27th after a few hours of braving the post Christmas sales my SIL (from Queensland) slipped on the embankment down the back of my Father in law's and broke her ankle in 3 places. The ambulance was called - and she was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment. Once there she was offloaded to a wheel chair and waited for ages to be seen and x rays ... then once the fracture was diagnosed she was transported to another hospital for surgery... at 2am in the morning But ...
There she languished for 3 days before they operated to pin and plate her fractured ankle~ yesterday. Her surgery was cancelled so many times for other emergencies.Understandably a few Caesarians. Only they starved her so many times and then had no food to offer her.
Today, she was discharged. She ( & her hubby) missed her flight home to Queensland (Sat) but hopefully with Jetstar's compassion she may get a refund. She will now be off work for 6 weeks. She also just spent 2 weeks in Cambodia on a Christian mission too.
So what will 2008 bring ... I have 42 resolutions one for each of my 42 New years and a rehash of my 43 things. Stay tuned ... if it doesn't bore you. It's a work in progress.
I still feel a little deflated ... the anxious and joyous anticipation of Christmas, barely 7 days ago - gone. The Christmas tree ... to go~ tomorrow. The excess of food ... gone - the chocolate ... NOT gone (I got an extra stash tonight at half price). The Sales ... do you think I am crazy who takes 1 yr old twins shopping. I can't leave them long enough because of breastfeeding and the fact DH can't do much with them awake. Heehee - I think he understands why I don't achieve much in a day.
So 2007 is really gone, gone and going in about 2 mins.
Happy NEW year to all my blogging friends and thank you to my faithful readers. I am curious to know who you all are.
I am committing to so many resolutions but they
My commitment to a new diet is strong but I am weak. It's really no wonder I feel accompanying 'mixed' seasonal emotions and a little defeated.
Bring in on - 2008 a new beginning.
I will do my 2007 roundup tomorrow and my New Years resolutions asap... I am open to suggestions except by my husband.
