Mischief managed ?


No, I don't have a magic wand but I wish I did and a time turner.

If I could turn back time
If I could find a way
I'd take back those words that have hurt you
And you'd stay

I don't know why I did the things I did
I don't know why I said the things I said
Pride's like a knife, it can cut deep inside
Words are like weapons, they wound sometimes
I didn't really mean to hurt you
I didn't wanna see you go
I know I made you cry
But baby

[Chorus:]
If I could turn back time
If I could find a way
I'd take back those words that have hurt you
And you'd stay
If I could reach the stars
I'd give them all to you
Then you'd love me, love me
Like you used to do
If I could turn back time

My world was shattered, I was torn apart
Like somebody took a knife
And drove it deep in my heart
When you walked out that door
I swore that I didn't care
But I lost every thing darling then and there
Too strong to tell you I was sorry
Too proud to tell you I was wrong
I know that I was blind, and darling

[Chorus:]
If I could turn back time
If I could find a way
I'd take back those words that have hurt you
And you'd stay
If I could reach the stars
I'd give them all to you
Then you'd love me, love me
Like you used to do
If I could turn back time

If I could turn back time
If I could turn back time
If I could turn back time, Baby

I didn't really mean to hurt you
I didn't wanna see you go
I know I made you cry

[Chorus:]
If I could turn back time
If I could find a way
I'd take back those words that have hurt you
And you'd stay
If I could reach the stars
I'd give them all to you
Then you'd love me, love me
Like you used to do
If I could turn back time.


I am so thankful for all the friends I have made in this virtual world. However, I let it intrude too much into my real life and I let my relationship suffer. I spent too much time away from him and it caused a rift.

We drifted apart and I neglected my husband.My dearest friend in the whole world. It wasn't just blogging and my blog in the last 14 months .It maybe goes back further to when I frequented pregnancy loss forums after losing Charlotte, then infertility/IVF and then pregnancy forums.

The last 4 years have been very difficult, first we lost Charlotte, followed closely by two pets (one of 4yrs and another of 12yrs within 3 months not significant but part of the big picture), my Dad was being treated for Leukemia and he died very suddenly 5 days before Charlotte's first anniversary. A more people M knew passed away in a short period and it shook him.

Then our IVF journey and Twins' pregnancy - though we received the greatest gifts imaginable. It has still been a stressful three years even with the joyous and awesome responsibility of raising them.

I think I searched for comfort and support from others instead of him. Maybe they understood me more . I wanted their acceptance and understanding - he didn't meet my needs. Maybe I didn't give him enough of a chance. We grieved differently . I never wanted this but I can see now it needed to happen.

My husband had no one. They say it is different for men - maybe - they just don't get the same support. M says looking back that when we lost Charlotte was when it started to slide and go wrong.

Though there is more to it than I understand or can explain here. M also thinks I was too controlling and he let me be, to keep me happy. I don't think he will again.

M is a good man , a very good husband and Father. The last 2 weeks he has changed dramatically and it is as if he has been through a fire. Our relationship has too.

Like in the Aussie bush ...

the effects of fire in regenerating the bush can be dramatic. Immediately after a bushfire, the landscape might be charred and barren, completely black and seemingly devoid of life. Yet maybe only a few months later, the bush is re-born. Bushes and trees have begun to re-sprout and flower, and seeds that have been released and germinated by the blaze are taking root.
We can't spend our time sifting through the ashes. We have new bridges to build. We have to focus on the future and try not to make the same mistakes again.

We are talking and trying to renew our relationship slowly. It is still difficult and uncertain. It's still hard to know where it will take us.

Like the new growth it might take some time.Though there is forgiveness. The scars will remain but the pain will lessen, I hope. I have written M twenty pages of thoughts and feelings (save the trees darling and come home). It has been therapeutic. I wrote the things I couldn't say out loud and others I did especially 'sorry'.

Our family business plays a big part in it all too.

I have had plenty of time for some intense soul searching.The entire experience has been painful but I am going to cope it whatever way I can.The Lord has been with me through some very tough moments and he will be in the future.

On the teen front - I have recognised that I didn't manage my actions and behaviour well in relation to him. I picked on him over the small stuff. There was some other big stuff too I could have dealt with better. I have to continue to work on this. He is oblivious to what he does. For peace sake I have to let go and reduce my expectations of him.


~ ~
Oh on mischief ... how do I manage it - I don't. I thought you might know .
H E L P !
My little buddies are so mischievous - they have scaled new heights and are destructing everything. It's been dangerous ...but they have kept me in sane.

This has been the hardest thing caring for them by myself 24/7. I have a renewed respect for single parents. I really DO.

I still don't know what else to say enough said already. I have 'blog writers' block' and my heart is still heavy. I will be blogging again more regularly as soon as things settle down but not as much as before.

Thank you again for all your messages and emails of support. They were much appreciated.

Handle with prayer

hi , it has been a while.

It's incredibly hard to write this post but just so you know where I am at.

Last week my husband and teenage son, suddenly and voluntarily left our home for an undetermined period whilst we sort out a few personal,grief and marriage issues.Plus my relationship with our teenager.

I've made mistakes.A lot.

It's been hard.

It is a long story.

It's too personal.

I am not sure how much I even really understand.

We are still talking and trying to work through this time as best we can.

Right now it's being compounded by 'outsiders' giving advice.

I feel very alone and isolated.

It is unbearable right now.

I just need time to focus on my little boys and resolving the difficulties in our marriage.It is all I can think about.

I trust my marriage is in the Hands of God and I will see a resolution in time.

Handle with prayer !

I just pray that This, too, will pass
!

Smiley Saturday

This week my husband was very sick (still is playing it up) and so were all the children but we still pulled a few smiles. It was also my birthday so of course lots of reasons to smile about that.
  • I received an unexpected gift from a family we helped .It warmed my heart they thought of me.The chocolates will be lovely ...except I will be restricting myself on my bloggest challenge.
  • I had lunch with two of my oldest and dearest 'school friends' .We discussed over lunch the fact we had almost been friends for 30 yrs OMG I am that old. We don't get to see each other as much now I have the twins and we don't talk . It was very special. I also got some lovely flowers and a plant.
  • S & J also got a present from my friend it was a action nursery rhyme book and CD - they laughed at mummy doing crazy actions .I laughed so much too.
  • I was being cheeky one day and squirted my little monsters with milk ... they squealed with laughter so much and learnt a new trick ...oops .A big boo boob.
  • Lastly , two more precious little babes Kai & Hamish were born safely to some of my friends from a pregnancy loss support group and that is the best reason to smile ever.

Tonight I went to a small fundraiser event night for another friend,G (40). I have known her over 20 years. She has been to Bolivia twice as missionary , a lovely single woman with a heart of gold and heart for God, the Gospel and the women and children of Bolivia. She is returning again in a few months to live there indefinitely.

Hearing the tragic stories of poverty but also the joy she brings children was heart grabbing. I cannot complain about my soft life...imagine being so poor you give you children to the orphanage because you are so poverty stricken you cannot feed /clothe or educate them.

Imagine leaving your children with burns in hospital for months and not being able to visit them because they are too far away and you are so poor. Though one little girl after her treatment was left at the orphanage so she could get clothes, toys and a better life.

I admit I was very teary. Shoes were given to small boy and then his mother had to sell them the next week so they could buy food. Young children left to roam the streets or attend mission cafes /centres because their parents had to work or for other reasons. Yet - the sweet looks on the childrens' grimy faces and beaming smiles made you want to gather them up and bring them to a safer place.

I came away with the knowledge we are blessed beyond measure and we have so little knowledge of the real dirt poor.

Thankful Flickr Friday - extra news

There is no Flickr Friday today but I still did a small one because ...I saw Leigh at Crazy Meezer has started the Bloggest Loser Challenge.*see credits below
  • The Challenge started on 7th July - I hope it isn't too late ...
Rules are easy, weigh in will be on Sundays, so the first week is a bit of a warm up, so you can jump in when you can. The challenge will run for 12 weeks, starting tomorrow, the 7th July.
To join in, just make a post about the challenge and leave a comment and I will link to you from the challenge page (work in progress) In your post let us know your goals for the challenge and how you hope to achieve them. You don’t have to reveal how much you weigh if you don’t want to…just how much you wish to lose and your loss each week
  • I have enjoyed being able to eat a lot while breastfeeding my gorgeous little milk monsters (it will come to an end one day) . I have a wider bottom half than my top half so I am keen to tone up and lose a few kilos ... because my jeans are too tight the weight is slowly creeping on. I am joining in to be encouraged and give encouragement too.
  • I want to reduce a few cms off my calves (?) and thighs too. Mainly, want to get fit.I plan to continue riding my exercise bike , reduce my chocolate/sweet white cr@p and chips intake and eat more vegetables.I will ride my exercise bike and walk a few times a week (pending the weather).
What do you have to lose ?
UPDATED

52 Blessings to be Grateful ... TWO A new birth S

  • My friend T's little Kai, was born today safe and well . He is the cutest little guy born @37 weeks and weighing in at 3kgs or so . I saw him when he was barely two hours old. A VB with no drugs ...but the gas . I saw T in the midst of a contraction 5 mins before K was born and she almost ripped the mattress apart. I knew she was close.
  • T's daughter ~Charlie~ was stillborn 3 years on 9th July ...so 2 days ago was the anniversary. T was in hospital ready - as in moments - to have c/section and they found there was no heartbeat. The c/s was canceled and C was born sleeping the next day a VB so as not to cause scarring for future pregnancies. They say it better that way emotionally too ... as if there is a no better way to give birth to a dead baby.
  • T & I met later at a pregnancy loss support group.Today at our support group there were 5 of us (& social worker) ...4 of us having given birth to living children after our first babies died during pregnancy.There was a little girl 2 weeks old and a boy 6 months old present.
  • We were all teary talking about what it meant to go through a subsequent pregnancy after the loss of a baby and our hospital experiences. 3 of us had our 2nd (3rd) babies earlier than planned by emergency c/s due to various complications .
  • The 5th mum's little boy died 3.5 years ago and she is now 29.5 wks pregnant - hanging in there by a thread ( she has a stitch in her cervix) with a precious little girl. At her baby shower on Sunday she had us in tears saying how this baby girl is a long time coming and we all knew what she meant. A day she never thought she would see ...she is in our prayers.
  • T also has a little boy 22 months old so we were pregnant together for a while in 2006 and our little guys attend playgroup together. I am just so glad Kai is here safe. We all are.

Sat morning Update :
  • Another friend C, from my pregnancy loss support group delivered Hamish this morning after a quick labour -she is even in the same hospital as T. Thank God for another safe arrival.
Apologies if the formatting was lost when you read this something in Blogger in draft completely stuffed all formatting.It has taken me 1.5hrs to fix this and still didn't work till I used bullet points. I still have no idea why - I can't see or find the HTML code causing the error.

Well I just spent 20 mins checking and I can't either. I've read more than 13 of them. I just skimmed the list and picked these quickly because I have had a busy day and I am stuffed for what else to blog. ..yes I am honest ! I really wanted to check it is an authentic list but it is still an interesting one.

7 Wuthering Heights - Emily Bronte

36 The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe - CS Lewis

40 Winnie the Pooh - AA Milne
41 Animal Farm - George Orwell

Old



The prompt is:
HEADS - Anything starting with the letter O

Here I was straining my shrinking brain for inspiration and then it hit me right between my wrinkled and bushy brows ...

OLD
I can't believe it didn't click earlier ... being my birthday and all.
I don't really feel older and I am certainly not wiser but maybe a little wider LOL.

So, yes I had a quiet day with a big surprise . My sister who I get along with though she still likes to bait me and tease sent me my first birthday message ( a first for a while too) and it started so soppy (so NOT my sister - ever ! we have always have since her our teens - a love hate relationship )

...Hope you have a lovely birthday filled with love & happiness .Don't let those candles burn 2 long its becoming a fire hazard.

I had a quiet day - as quiet as you can with three drummers -the teen man is on school holidays so he played a LOT today.The Brothers loved it.

A special online friend sent me a lovely cup with the word HOPE on it .I was a nice surprise and she rang me too.

Tonight , the Tool man, S , J & I went out for a quick dinner ...how else can it be with twin toddlers.

I am feeling old but I am glad to be here to celebrate, albeit quietly.It really just means another trip around the sun.

I ask myself what have I done the last 525,600 minutes and 1 extra day that mattered ?

What will I do this next year that will matter ?

I don't have the answers but I feel blessed every day I wake up ...especially next to my little birthday presents from 2 years ago.

Monster Monday 2

Okay so we are one week into July and I am a little late .
I have been reviewing my goals for June. I can't believe it is half way through 2008 ... it is also my birthday tomorrow ..well in 30 minutes.

The Planning Queen (sorry can't get her link working right now) reminded me today as I was attempting to catch up on my google reader feeds.

Good intentions Goals For July

Blogging

  • BLOG 365 continues .
  • Continuing my goal to have my posts up by 3pm (a few days successful ) and trying to use Blogger scheduled posts (ahead of time) for days I am busy. Stuffed this up by not checking the date and I had three posts spit out in one day unintentionally ...ooops.
  • Find a new comment system (if it’s possible) check out blogger indraft with new wordpress style inline commenting .
  • Design a new header for my blog Undone - to do in July!.
  • Continue commenting and connecting with new people during International Comment Leaving Week … see the link in my sidebar - leaving a minimum of 5 comments a day on new blogs and returning one visit (I return almost all ;) )

Health - crunch time - eat healthier foods and home cooked meals


Eat less of this I'll cross cake off the list ... after my birthday okay !

Ride this - 30 mins a day minimum 5 days a week - so far this is one habit I am keeping up with and sticking at - some days I miss so I ride 1 hr the next .It has been tough LOL but I am enjoying it .
Photography - still on my undone list but a long term plan to learn more - maybe Jenty will share some tips. I have to wait for a new camera before I do anything.

Money
I aim to continuing
  • explore a few blogs about reducing grocery spending and start my own price book (not started yet)
  • Track our spending more carefully - starting now.
  • Review what we have been spending the last few months - underway too.
  • Stick to my Buy Nothing Challenge as much as possible
  • Check the guide of cost/hr of various electrical appliances …take the time to switch off a lot of appliances.
  • wear more clothes ... stop laughing ...it's not just to save money on heating the new neighbours are moving in soon and their kitchen /outdoor eating balcony overlooks our kitchen and the dining table we keep our clothes on ( folded of course). We keep the curtains open to let the morning sun in.

Planning and Productivity

  • Finish organising this and sort my filing cabinet and system out ... half done !

  • Start 2008 tax early this year after finishing end of financial year stuff.This is a must do else we have huge tax bill to pre pay and they leave the quarterly pay as you go high all year till we do it
  • Review and rewrite my 43 things and draft my 101 in 1001 days. I want to start on my birthday... I forgot about this so I will list 10 things for for 101 list tomorrow.
  • Make new to do lists and charts- I found this excellent link to a create your own custom styled schedule and task list for kids and adults. It has every theme imaginable - all the cartoon characters (Like Thomas,Sponge BOB, DORA, Sesame street ,Princess and animals etc) you chose your own pictures and you add your own task/chore list... then print it off. I love lists
it will hopefully help me ...
  • Leave earlier to get to appointments, playgroup and church on time -still working on this .
Growing our own vegetables -The seedlings of chinese cabbage ,cauliflower and something else ? are still alive but someone killed off my 3 tomato seedlings from seeds planted by moving them .I have to start again -so they are ready for Spring.

Have you got any short goals or long term plans ?
What are your goals for July ?

One last thing ... I am trying to get to bed by or earlier -some days I succeed ...

Another thing the Planning Queen reminded me of is catching up with friends and this is definitely a high priority on my list.

Smiley Saturday

I never run out of things to make to make me smile though the last few days have been rough.The whole week busy and stress filled .Both the little Brothers, the Tool man and even the Teen man have been unwell. I feel exhausted,emotional, overwhelmed and spent (without the retail therapy joy) over lots of things.

Yet, whenever I am feeling cranky and prickly with the world and how unfair things are I remember how blessed I am. Except don't ask the Tool man because he often cops it before I remember (LOL he does NOT).

Last night, S was awake crying and thrashing about most of the night - inconsolable, feverish 39 c, coughing his lungs up, snotty nosed, with a little chucking and lots of screaming. We gave Nurofen and Dimetapp, lots of cuddles . In the end I had to suggest the Tool man go to the spare room to give us space and so he could get some sleep because he still to go to work today.

I must have dropped off to sleep finally .Then I woke in a panic because I couldn't find S (clinging to me)- then feeling around in the dark I noticed he'd dropped out the bed and was sleeping curled up in a ball on the carpet. Amazingly he didn't cry when he either fell or got out of bed. Who knows? he can Jump climb on/off, in/out so he would have got back in if he did (does that make sense)

I had to pick him, because I couldn't leave him there, for another few rounds of thrashing , tossing and screaming till day break.

We got up after 7.30 or so. He had shower with Daddy and clung to him, screamed when taken out shower, screamed and kicked as I tried to put nappy on /dress him as if in pain.Then I took back to my bedroom and he nursed with difficulty, coughing and spluttering and went back to sleep at 8am till 11.30.

I was so worried about him I stayed in the room - gave me the nudge opportunity to clean my windows/window tracks , ensuite window and blinds too.

I had to hang washing on the line in between and J wandered around outside calling for S - made me smile .He was so sweet .When I was in the room cleaning J kept going to poke check on S( he wanted to wake him of course) in between trashing everything else and emptying cupboards.

S finally woke and was a bit happier and brighter. I was so relieved .I worry so much about my babies when they are sick. He played a little but was still very quiet. Then J went to sleep. I nursed S again and he went back to sleep for another 2 hrs. After he had a little play outside then played drums with Teen man he had another sleep before dinner. Tonight he still has high temperature, cough, runny nose, red rimmed and watery eyes but not screaming -yet.

On to other smiles ... Of course this was their birthday week so we had lots of smiles and fun. They aren't really clued up on birthdays but they enjoyed the party and all the visitors. They like their new toys and books too.

I haven't had much time to blog or visit many blogs this week but a few things that made me smile ...
Dogs and Cats @ Gills Jottings
The multiple, multiple cute kids photos taken of Quints (yes that's five toddlers) , quads and triplets at the Farmhouse kids wheat field by Tanya
An award by Jane @Kidzarama


and Arte y Pico Award by the fearless and fabulous Lilly @ Lilly's Life
I am humbled once again . Though I need to write more about these awards so give me time.

Even if I have some issues to deal with mostly my life is still pretty good. As long as I can limit myself focusing on the things that make me cranky or bitter or sad and the prickly but annoying small stuff that doesn't really matter much in the bigger picture I can keep smiling amidst all the chaos. I am blessed and thankful beyond measure.

Flickr Friday -Umbrellas

~ A very fitting choice by Kate @Lazycow designs ...

1. Summer Fun, 2. When it rains out come the umbrellas even on the boats, 3. Brolly on the ground, 4. Umbrella Blues, 5. day 228: sunshine and showers, 6. Bali Paradise, 7. P4080415.jpg, 8. il mio augurio, 9. Cycling through the rain


It was very cold today (ok I am whinging a little - we don't get cold enough for snow - boo). I didn't even have to persuade the Brothers to leave their woolly hats on.

As soon as I finished putting 3 loads of washing on the line ... it started to rain.

The line we installed under our new awning is broken ...it was old 2nd hand and the knob is broken.I called the Tool Man home to fix it.He did eventually.

Then the sun came out and he said the sun is shining. So I left them on the other line. So wrong ! Then the rain came down.

I love umbrellas - I wish I had a big one for my clothes line. Those with rotary (like umbrella shape) can get them.

So what do you call it an umbrella or brolly ?

Whistle while you work

A little randomness ...bloggy flotsam
  • Thank you to all the wishes for S & J's birthday .It has been a busy,well busier week with cleaning up after the party, the end of financial year stuff I have to finish as well as regular end of month stuff for the Tool Man 's business.
  • My little screwup the other day was - I wrote a few posts in advance because I knew I would be busy .Then I forgot about schedule posts posting automatically ... so please go see my Alphabet you ...it was fun but I think only one person saw it.
  • Yesterday I learned how to organise and sort my, almost, 2000 emails (read) in my inbox in Outlook Express. I found some gems in there too. I will share some later.
  • I still have just as many on another hotmail account and over 200 unread emails there.Sorry, I will get to you.I hope you can sort just as easily using hotmail.
  • I am missing you all .I feel very overwhelmed by 101 (slight exaggeration) jobs to be done and I am trying to return comments. Please bear with me.
  • Also, S & J have been unwell with a cold , runny nose etc. I am thankful they are still happy enough when playing though very needy. It is just a bit harder when they both want me at same time.I feel bad they have to wait a turn.
I also found this quote and forgot to use it Tuesday for their birthday.
You were born together, and together you shall be forevermore... but let there be spaces in your togetherness. And let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Kahlil Gibran
  • With all the work I have to do I found this the other day ...now it is playing over and over in my head.
Thanks to Amelia
  • By the way I hope you are finding the comment box okay ... it will appear under the post with previous comments above it.I haven't had much of a chance to see how it works properly ...
  • Do you like it ?Does it make leaving comments easier ?Please tell me what you think if you are using on your blog too .
  • I am using Blogger in draft to compose my post and it is very different ...not sure if I like it as much.There is no spell check either.
  • The formating isn't working right I'm using bullet points
  • Forgive me it this doesn't make sense because I am very sleep deprived -worked on business stuff till1am last night, woke with the Brothers' a few times and up early today.
I just realised that it's Thursday Thirteen and I've posted 13 random things without even meaning too.

Less Word Wednesday



I decided to make an impromptu cake at 6pm last night because we had the boys Grandpa (lives 5mins) and Aunty K (over 1000 kms away down from Queensland) coming over for dinner to help celebrate.
Even though we had the big cake on Sunday. It was banana choc cake ...mmm.

All they wanted to do was gobble the Smarties from the top and grab the candle.

I also wanted each of them to have a turn at 'Happy Birthday' being sung to them alone.
As twin they will always share a birthday but it is good to let them have the limelight alone for a few minutes.
