Things I know

Things I know today about stuff

  • You never know what is going to happen. Doesn’t matter how much you think you have covered all the loop holes or possibilities – anything can happen.
  • A teething baby sucks. Jack’s been teething for weeks now. I can see the flippin teeth but they just will not come out.
  • It is always good to have a friend who can change your break pads.
  • Your happiness is your responsibility. You can’t make someone happy if they don’t want to be.
  • I love rainy days.

  • I eat when I am tense!
  • Despite the curve ball we were thrown this week (again) there are some awesome things happening and it will all work out – I KNOW this.
  • I am giddy with excitement about trying on wedding dresses at the end of the month.
  • I will never get used to my mom being so far away. It sucks – a lot!

Things I know about the end of the year

  • I know that the children feel the end of the year “burn out” as much as us adults do.
  • I know it’s a time people feel unappreciated, unloved and a little “klein-seerig”
  • I know it’s the time where my desk gets piled high with school books the kids have bought home.
  • I know money is always tight.
  • I know as much as it’s nice to re-unite with family – this in itself can cause tension.
  • I know no matter how much sleep you get you are- still tired – physically, emotionally, mentally.
  • I know it still remains my favourite time of the year :)
