what the!

its funny how life sneaks up on you and says - hey where are your priorities.... well ... obviously mine caught up with me this week. I have been a naughty blogger, a bad mother, and totally irresponsible person who can't look after her own self.

The past few weeks i have been throwing myself in to get a heap of grants done, school P&C work , working with some teacher aide relief work {love this}, running children here there and everywhere & waking at stupid hours of the morning to see DH off to work {he is loving the new job} .. that i really have not looked after me - i have the toothache from hell. Because i have put it off and put it off I now have an abcess under my tooth which means repeated sessions in the dentists chair at over $1000 or one very painful visit of $80.00 to get the nasty little bugger pulled out. I am tending towards the $80.00 value pack - as it would be cheaper to get a plate with a new tooth and as its in the back of my mouth i am more inclined to feel at ease... except for the pain of it all.

As for the neglecting parent thing .. well miss chicken hurt her ankle a couple of saturdays ago and we have been icing it and strapping it for her ... but she is still limping - some of this is for the sympathy vote - and she is not helping herself by making silly decisions to run around on it and hurt it again... but i have finally gone and got it looked at and she did herself some ligament damage... so hopefully she is on the mend with a little help from the physio man.

Its my little big brothers birthday tommorow - he had a party last night - we had fireworks - they were great and i got some great shots.... but .... i had the camera set on monochrome - what a dufus i am.......

I haven't really done any scrapping of late... today is the first time in a long time i have had a chance to scrap - i did Scrappydi's smile album finally and now its ready to move on to thenext person... and tonight i have done two layouts - but no pics as i am still working on them.


The new PC that i crave for is looking good -- dh is almost convinced and we may just have the new one before the end of the month- i think i have to bat my eyelids more. The Retreat i am going away on is nearing and i am so looking forward to it too.... so excited to get to scrap all weekend...

I took a quote from one of my fave Bradley Trevor Grieve books - "the book for people who do too much" - this books absolutely cracks me up - i think its cause i need to really take some of the advice in it and slow down... but life is for living so here ya go....
" The bottom line is that peo0ple who do too much end up doing too little of what really matters."
Have a great 5th of May everyone.... i am going to!
