Yup, it’s that time of the week again, linking up for #listmania10.
This weeks topic was to write an A to Z of Now, so here goes:
A is for Anniversary. Hubby and I just celebrated our first wedding anniversary.
B is for my Babies. I have a gorgeous 2yo girl and an 11week old bubby boy.
C is for Cleaning and Cooking, all the boring stuff that there’s just never enough hours in the day to get it all done.
D is for Dog. Thinking about getting another dog. We have a very spoiled 12yo Hungarian Viszla, who seems a bit lonely since our other dog, Phoebe, died. I’d like to get another dog but I don’t know if I’m ready to put myself through all that again, especially right now with a small baby. Maybe I’ll wait till next year?
E is for Equality. Something that’s in the news all the time and makes me so mad that we live in such an ‘advanced’ society yet we can still treat people differently due to their sex, religion, skin colour or sexual preference.
F is for F…., a word that I say far too often. I’m going to have to find an alternative before my little Miss starts repeating it!
G is for Garden. I’m not very good at gardening, plants don’t seem to survive all that long around me, but I’m learning and I find it very soothing to get outside and get my hands dirty.
H is for House/Home. Such a huge focus of our lives right now. It will be a huge relief to get finished just to be able to stop stressing about it.
I is for Indigenous Rights. Another thing in the news that makes me mad. Something that should be common sense but when politics gets involved it becomes something else. Just change the bloody constitution already!
J is for Jammin’, by Bob Marley and the Wailers. The song that’s on my Ipod right now.
K is for Knitting. Something I don’t have time to do anymore. A pity, because it really relaxes me.
L is for Love. “All you need is love…”
M is for Music. I love my music. I really start to go a bit crazy if I go a few days without listening to any.
N is for Night. There’s always so many things I plan to do at night, after the kids are asleep, but by the time that finally happens, I’m usually ready for bed too.
O is for Outside. Little Miss always wants to go play outside, sometimes I need to just go outside and do what she wants to do, everything else can wait.
P is for Patience. Something I don’t have nearly enough of most days. But I’m trying.
Q is for Quiet. Another thing I don’t have nearly enough of. On the rare occasions that the little ones are both asleep at the same time, I try to grab a few minutes to sit down and enjoy the peace and quiet.
R is for Routines. Something I’m not very good at,especially sticking to a bedtime routine, but it does seem to be good for the kiddies, so I’m trying.
S is for Stress. I stress over everything, the weather, the kids, the house, everything. I need to learn how to just take a deep breath and let go.
T is for Television. I never used to watch hardly any t.v. but lately it seems like it’s always on. (Especially ABC2, the best friend of a toddler’s parents!)
U is for Underwear. There is nothing pretty about maternity/nursing bras. And I refuse to go spend a small fortune on one just because it’s got a bit of lace on it. I can’t wait to go back to regular, pretty bras.
V is for Very Cute. I can always count on my little ones to do something cute to make me smile.
W is for Windows. The rest of the windows for the house should be getting delivered today.
X is for eXercise. Right now, for me, it’s a choice between exercise and sleep. I choose sleep.
Y is for Yes. I feel like I say no to Miss Snugglebug about a million times a day, so I’m trying to find more things I can say yes to.
Z is for zzzz’s. With two little ones, there is a serious lack of sleep around here at the moment.
Ok, that’s it for today. We’ve got a big week coming up this week, going on a 7hr round trip tomorrow to pick up a slab of redgum that’s going to become our kitchen bench, then it’s Easter, and there’s a couple of birthdays coming up too. Hoping to get another blog post up by the end of the week, but I’m not sure if I’ll get time.
Till next time,
