wow I have been so very slack about this blog so here is a quick catch up on my life right now…
Firstly, I’ve now been off my antidepressants for 3 weeks – I clean forgot to take them for a week and a half and then suddenly realised that I was still feeling good…great even…so I’m off them and its all good.
Which leads me to the next bit…I’m happy. Yes I have days when the kids drive me nuts, when I get overwhealmed by housework and knee high grass, when I’m stressed about money or broken down cars or life in general…..but overall I am happier than I can remember being in a very long time.
The boys are going along nicely although Brett seems to think the world has it in for him at the moment – I do hope that improves soon. He had a horror week last week but I have decided the best thing is to start fresh this week and hope we can improve things.
Lee and his son Ryan came on holidays with us up to Loxton and Adelaide for a couple of weeks. Was great to be able to introduce my man to my family – was even better to see that they all got on well (never really doubted that they would)!
I have finished another unit at unit (intro Indigenous studies unit) – still awaiting marks of course for the last two assignments but the first do I did well so should be all ok. I’ve also just (yesterday) started my new unit – Psychology of Wellbeing (positive psychology) which sounds really interesting and I am looking forward to getting stuck in (who knows maybe I can find something to help with Brett’s attitude to life in the learning materials). It’s my first level 2 psych unit so will be interesting to see if I can maintain my good grades.
This next couple of months I will be on a mission to get the house tidied and some repairs/maintence done too as we are looking at some massive changes to our lives….a new home and two additions to our family (Lee and Ryan). So hoping to see a big FOR SALE sign going up in a few months time – ideal time for the move would be at the end of the year as there is a good chance that the kids will have to change schools.
So there you have it life is good (mostly) and I am oh so blessed and happy!
