One of my friends had to be taken to an inpatient drug rehab because of her problems. She was quite young back then, and all of us her friends never thought she would be able to recover. We thought that her life was surely over and she would just be stuck in that hopeless situation. We thank the luck stars that she finally got back on her feet, and managed to find a good life in the end. It just goes to show that perseverance is the way.
Mornings are quite glaring now a days. Of course, now that daylight savings is over, I wake up to the sun now. I need to get myself a set of Maui Jim Sunglasses to protect my eyes. They are always fashionable and of course will protect my eyes from the harmful UV rays. I am sure that I will love to have one or maybe two.
It’s finally here, our new home is really coming and I am very excited to shop around for new stuff to put in it. I am now looking at goedekers for kitchen appliance packages for the favorite spot of my husband. I am also on the hunt for good furniture that will suit our new home. I don’t to leave things to chance. I want to be sure about the stuff that I am buying.
I’ve always wanted to travel up to Sydney, but was having second thoughts about how to get there. We could try to drive there, but then I wouldn’t be able to enjoy much cause I will be the only driver. Of course, we could make stops along the way, but it still would be a very long drive. My mind was already set on making the trip so we decided to take a slightly expensive approach. We travelled by Plane to Sydney. We managed get cheap tickets for the flight. We also didn’t have trouble with accomodation. I have a cousin, who lives in the suburbs and he was willing to give us a couple of rooms to stay in for the whole week. The only problem that we had now was how do we get around the place. Public transport is not that easy to understand in Sydney. Unlike in Melbourne, Sydney is a bigger place and travel by public transport will take longer. We found a solution through thrifty car rental online. It was quite easy to get a car that suited us, and the rates were great too. I could not be happier with the result of renting a car up there. I would have only enjoyed our trip for 4 days, because I would have been resting for the first 2 days because of the amount of driving that I had to do. Like I said it was quite easy. We booked our rental online and even found the best rates.
Me and my kids just stay home today. The weather is bad and we need rest from the long weekend trips. Mommy just don’t last driving everyday plus the stress and pressure that my kids giving me. How hard it is to be a mother of three boys with an impatient father who doesn’t know how to drive and didn’t even bother to give at least less effort to learn. It’s just so tiring. It is really hard to be a parent. No wonder I heard some stories about couple get separated and mother leaving the kids with their Dad or Mum. Maybe they need to breath, away from stressful family life. Maybe their husband has a lot of shortcomings that a mother can’t handle anymore.
By the way, talking back about being home today. I just let my boys played their video and computer games. At least when you’re home, it’s less hassle handling your kids. Just feed them and cook what they want. Just like today they requested for sushi roll, lucky I still had some ingredients for tuna roll. Maybe until tomorrow, we’ll be just home. I just hope they will not complain and winge to me because Mommy wants to be stress free just for a day or two.
It’s time to bring out those burton snowboards again. The perfect time is here. I know that it’s not yet Winter; but these last few days of cold weather would surely bring in some snow in the Alps. I can honestly say that I don’t like the cold that much, but I like it more than a hot day. My family seems to agree with me on this too.
I don’t consider myself handy around the house. But I can proudly say that when it comes to fixing small things, I can manage. I know how to hold some of the basic tools and how a lock washer is used. I know that some ladies out there are afraid to even hold a hammer. Well, it isn’t that hard at all. But if there are things that I can’t handle, I’ve got my husband.
It’s amazing to see people who can play a lot of musical instruments. They can play violin harmonically and strum guitars incredibly. They can play the drums and even blow the trumpets crazily but in tune. I wonder if it cost them a fortune to learn that or they’re just really gifted with so much talent plus the singing ability. I wish I can be like them. It’s too late I know but I’m happy that I still can sing.
We’re living in a fully carpeted house in the meantime and for me it is very high maintenance. In the first few weeks of our stay here, I got allergies and my son had asthma attack. My husband bought our own carpet cleaner with shampoo and he does all the hard work of cleaning. He prefers to do it by himself rather than hiring a carpet cleaner because it cost a fortune. Fair enough anyway. It’s not easy to have carpeted house to be honest especially if you got kids, young kids in particular. Unlike floorboard that if you made mess, you can easily sweep it and use mop. I’m glad we didn’t choose to have fully carpeteted for our future house.
I know that my friend needs a deburring tool to cut into the stuff that she needs. It’s not very easy to do these things, but she just does it with ease. I wouldn’t really trust myself to do task that require sharp objects. This is the reason, I don’t do much kitchen work at all. Of course, my husband just want’s to do most of the cooking anyways.
