The truth and the light at the midnight oasis

The Truth
  • My plans to stress less haven't worked. I feel more stressed then ever before and I have cold sores to prove it.
  • It was a relief for my husband to finish his 6wks of radiotherapy. The oncology team of Drs decided that he wouldn't get any extra benefit from chemotherapy. WE hope radiation did what was intended .That is all.
  • It's now a 6 month wait till the next, first scan.
  • Two more things that will help me to stress less are
The truth is seriously I'd like to use it on my teen (mute function) and to a lesser extent on the other three ;-). It has a multitude of uses ...
  • More of this LOL ...
  • My time is still swallowed up these days just doing regular things. It seems lately I haven't even 5 mins to actually sit down and think of something that others would like to read.
  • No promises but I hope be doing posting more regularly once normalcy reigns in my life again.
The Light
The light at the end of the dark , lonely road tunnel is still visible. I keep holding onto the Light of hope.
It that fails I'll get a brighter light. I know we must also believe in ourselves and our unlimited potential even when things do not go as planned. I wish I had someone to talk too. Midnight Oasis
We are out of town at the farm midnight oasis . It's kind of relaxing.
A retreat ...
Camping with all the comforts of electric cooking facilities, heating, hot water , shower and a flushing loo (...but not in the caravan).
Our shed 'home' is still a work in progress . Nearly everything we are using is scavenged recycled.

At night we put the camels to bed in the caravan which is very comfortable in the meantime.

I'm not sure who still visits so please say hi & raise your hand in the comments. I don't think I have that many readers hanging around.

Why do I bother to blog at all ...I do it for myself as record of the bits and pieces, snippets of times going by , places and people.
I am glad there is no rule ... of how frequently.
I accepted that I''ll never go back to what I had before.
It's a relief to feel less pressure , now I just blog when I feel like it...or have the time ;-)
Just as well I'm not taking up someone else's space by being here.

So tell me how are things going at your place ?
Is life treating you kind?
Can you still see the light at the end of the tunnel?
Are your days flying by so fast you only see a blur ?

hahaha favourite song is playing it's a marvellous night for a moonlight ;-) ...kthxbai

Hey, Trish (((hugs))).
We've rediscovered our own little oasis in Central Victoria and it's a pleasure to destress there :)
Thinking of you and your hubby, fingers crossed and best wishes for you both xxx

I am guessing that no chemo is a good thing? Hope so!

I am interested in the camels that sleep in your caravan.

@ Jayne - thanks xx It is a good place to de stress long as the teen behaves !

@ Mum-me - Yes it is a good thing mostly.
It is a reference to the song ...they talk about camels LOL and cactus ...we have cactus & cows/kangaroos ...I'm still looking for the camels.

I'm still here! I'm not blogging these days either, just got other priorities getting ready for fourth baby to come and sleeping/resting while I still can. :)

I had a rocky few weeks end of second trimester, beginning of third, with a couple of complications and feeling generally stressed and sick and awful, but we've made it to 37 weeks and the baby seems to be healthy so I'm just grateful now. But it gives me some (small) idea of what you and your husband must be going through.

I'm glad you posted - it reminded me to keep up the prayers I promised you. Say one for me too?

@ Marilyn - I was only just thinking about you recently wondering...I knew you are due in August.
Added you to my middle of the night prayer list.
I hope you have a few spare minutes to let me know when you gorgeous bundle makes their entrance to this wonderful world. (hugs)Happy birthing !
