Hump Day...

...is about to turn into grocery day... from next week on I will be using my Wednesday's as shopping and organising days... It helps that Nathan has the morning off and works "lates" It meas I will be meal planning weekly and working on grocery lists - most probably over the weekend when I have everyone home and can work out their tastes for the week ahead.... Well that's the plan LOL - things are likely to change hahaha

Enough of plans, a little update *sigh* I just want life to slow down from time to time.. Right now I feel everything is on "full steam ahead" but I wish it was one "go slow and enjoy" I try to take time to smell the roses but feel that I get pushed in the back to go by faster... Probably makes no sense but hey, I probably don't make sense most days LOL Today I spent the morning at my friend Jess's having coffee with her and Lisa... It was really nice to be out of the house for something other than to run around but it's kinda frustrating knowing that there's so much to do at home.... I really have to find the time and energy to get on top of it - and as silly as it sounds saying that at the moment knowing I'm not going to be home properly until Monday next week - augh!!! We have Kahli seeing a specialist appointment about her broken nose on Friday and the Matthew (Lisa's son's) party over the weekend (sleepover) sooooo trying not to make excuses but, well.. it feels like I am but hey I'm not - HONEST!!!

As for update... yesterday we had two negatives... firstly Dommy was sitting on the lounge besides me at Lisa's drinking from his sippy cup when somehow (I still can't work it out) he fell face first onto the hard floor on top of his sippy cup :( my poor little man has a black eye, bruise on his cheek and a egg on his forehead :( I feel so bad.... there was no way I could have prevented it, well yes it could have been if I was holding him down or sat him on the floor - I was reparing a napy for him to be changed into... but I have to wrack it up to experience... I hate it all the same knowing I was sittig right beside him and he still hurt himself!!! I've got piccies (how surprising - not LOL) but Nathan doesn't want me to put them up onlie in case some smart arse decides to call child welfare - guess it pays to be over careful now-days :(

Second negative was Kahli was caught stealing at KMart again - by me this time.. she was caught last week stuffing lollies into her pockets by a staff member... yesterday I did a pat down at the door before the kids all left and she had jewelry in her pocket!!!! I really am at my wits end with working out what to do.. she's lying her little head off and trying to live in her own reality world where she is all but a Cinderella character.. being abused by her mummy and daddy and mistreated by her brothers, starved and neglected and made work for everyone - far from the truth but I'm almost too scared to get professional help for her knowing she is going to lie her head off and possibly get us into strife... I just don't know what to so any more :( I feel really frustrated because she has it in her to be a great kid... I wish she could express herself in a more positive way.... Nathan actually packed her off to do a little visit at the police station yesterday purely out of desperation to try and offset this behaviour somehow, but all they did was like a personal tour like they do for school - I don't feel confident it will do anything so I am putting into action the next stage in keeping her out of trouble - it's purchasing one of the toddler handcuff/lead thingies so anytime she is in a store with us she is connected to either a pram, hand or trolly at all times - she wont be able to be out of sight or run off at all... Will be hard for her being an almost 10 year old ad treated like a baby, but I just don't know what else to do **sigh**

Anyhoos, Nathan has just got in from his nightshift.. time to make a coffee/hot chocolate and ready for bed for some well earned sleep...
