At the end of 2010 I used an app on facebook that took a random sample of my status' throughout the year and put them into a collage. I thought it was really neat to be able to look back at the day to day and so I've decided to record my status updates here. These are from January of this year. I guess for those of you who use twitter, this would be the same idea.
Cant keep doing this alone. What happens when I mess up? Who's there to take up the slack? Im just not strong enough to carry this whole load on my own.
Wants to Scream!
Is it bedtime yet?
The boys aren't allowed to play video games until after lunch so they're going around with a playstation controller pretending to control each other's movements.
I know I should be doing something...
What's with everyone having had a crappy sleep last night? At least Im not the only one
TGIF, have some sick little boys today...everyone of them is either throwing up or sneezing on everything. Somehow I dont think Im going to get through this without getting something myself.
It finally looks like winter in NL
I feel like I should be doing something just because the boys are gone for the night, but it's so cold outside that I just want to wrap myself in a blanket and read a book. I think Im a 27 year old spinster.
Now we're all sick :( Always happens when I haven't gone shopping in awhile and the house is already messy. Just gotta survive today...
Thankfully I was able to sleep last night but Im still feeling gross while all the boys are better and hyper. This is horrible.
this is worse than labour
What a day, even when Im sick! Old drama from years ago brought back again and an offer to go to Portugal for work.
Me: "Jamie, why are you in your brother's bed?" Jamie: "Because my brother's squishy."
Wishing this flu would go away....I was almost better yesterday and here it is back again
Woke up at 6:45 to my neighbour snowblowing my driveway...he didn't even have his done yet. And thanks to my daddy and brother, I now have snow tires on the van...just in time! It's amazing how many people have helped me out in the last couple of days.
is heading to Portugal in a month....craaaaaazy
wishing my body would get the memo...its been a week, get over this flu already!
not a fan of this whole being single thing
sitting here waiting for my belly to settle so we can get ready for church.
early bedtime tonight....these kids have been fighting me and each other all day!
After 8 days, Im finally feeling almost normal today! Yay!
Back from a movie date with my Micah...he's so grown up!
Looking at flights for Portugal...this is gonna wear me out! Its like 36 hours of travelling, there and back.
Mmm hot chocolate with rainbow marshmallows
Needs 50 word bio by tonight...help! Im terrible at writing about myself.
haha you can tell that my kids go to a middle class school...the principle sent home a pamphlet asking for donations to a silent auction. Suggestions? Flat screen tvs, a week at a vacation home in Florida or other destination, IPADS, netbooks...
Jeez only on a Friday! The doors were frozen on the van this morning and instead of waiting for me, the kids thought yanking on the handle would help...nope, it snapped off instead. We musta looked funny at that "middle class" school when the kids had to climb through to the front door :P
having doubts that I can learn enough Portuguese in 4 weeks...total words so far? 3
Mothering and Motherhood in the 21st century: Research and Activism, February 18-19 Lisbon, Portugal...so freaking excited!
Cant wait for girls night tonight! Great friends, great food and....glow golf? hehe...gonna be fun!
Putting the kids to bed and having a quiet night at home...feels like this weekend flew by!
Oh what a Monday! Toilet training 2 little boys, driving people around 4 separate times, baking 5 dozen cinnamon buns and trying to learn Portuguese...eek!
Freezing! Wish I wasn't scared to light a fire, that was always Jason's department.
I hope Jamie is feeling better for mom n me tomorrow...poor little guy had a fever tonight and went to bed at 6
The boys school is closing in 20 minutes because of impending weather and now I have to get all four little ones into the van and hope that Micah's class is back from his field trip...yuck
has no desire to get involved in church politics. It's sad but I feel like Im either being asked to pick sides, being very obviously ignored/looked down upon or getting asked personal questions that have nothing to do with those asking them. I go to church to worship, learn and spend time with other Christians, that's it. A very kind thank you to those few who have worked to make my family feel welcome.
trying to put together a menu plan for the kids while Im in Portugal is insanely hard...there's very few meals that they will all eat. Suggestions appreciated!
Ive done it! Roasted chicken with homemade fries two separate nights, cheese eggs, pancakes with bacon, frozen homemade soup (for 2 kids and frozen pizza for the others), chicken burgers or hot dogs and one night of take out....not too bad :) and wont cost me a fortune!
Saturday night seems like a crappy time to be writing about research activities facilitating community engagement and activism...
home with some sick little boys today :(

Eu sou perdido. Onde está o banheiro? Translation= Im lost. Where's the bathroom? hehe, should probably memorize this one
*I never want to forget the conversation from January 11, it still makes me laugh!
