Tim has been away for a week now and I always find it fascinating how I respond to him being away and also how the kids respond to him being away. Let’s talk about the kids first. I remember when I first became aware of how each child reacts to the absence of their father. I think Iraina was one and a half Continue reading “What The Kids Need When Dad Is Away”
Hello Friday! Boy, am I glad to see you! It’s been quite a week and even though it was a tough one – we’ve made it all the way through and have had a great finish. Last night was awesome people! If you haven’t figured out yet, then have a read about why I’m so amped.
A few weeks ago I wrote about the different Mom “me’s”. It’s honestly the craziest journey to hold all of the “me’s” together and somehow put up some form of ‘normal’ in each scenario. All of this ‘holding together’ while trying to actually discover what each part means and whether they should actually be up front in this current “scene” in my life’s play.

Every time I think about writing about being Tim’s wife and what we do, I honestly sit and have a debate about how much do I share and what do I keep private. You know? It’s this toss up between being too familiar and private or too much information or should I share a lot more? I have this debate because as much as I love to write and record what my thoughts are and what’s happening – it’s not just my life here, it’s Tims’, my kids and those closest to us.

Today, my hubby goes in for two procedures to be done in hospital. I honestly feel like I go kind of numb when I have to deal with any of my family members being ill. But I really kick into auto pilot when it’s Tim. Paper work needs to be sorted, medical aid needs to be aligned (thank goodness we have it, it would have been even more overwhelming without it – I applaud those that cope without it and brave the queues and financial implications without it). Kids need to be taken care of, I can’t lug them to the hospital with us Continue reading “Monday = Hubby in hospital “
So yesterday my hubby and I marked 12 years in our marriage belt. I honestly feel like I’ve been married for longer, but 12 still feels really good to say. But what’s really awesome (and wasn’t planned at all this way) is that we share our anniversary with my grandparents who have been married for 62 years. 62 years, just let that sink in a bit…..
