sorry for the melodrama....
just another of the wildly swinging emotional pendulum moment that is living in this house...
sometimes i just lose it....
i kinda have it back now...
THE CAVALRY ARE COMING!!! ......... TOMORROW!!!
Have organised help and it arrives in the morning....
I know that there is something for me to learn from all this.... and am busy trying to work out what that is. Hopefully will have some more answers tomorrow arvo.
I think that this is just a foothill on my way down the other side of the mountain.... If i can just make it over this one, then i think i am just about home and hosed. ..... for now..... hmmmm
Sometimes things are a little too close to be able to see properly. Sometimes i think things through too much, and think myself into total confusion... connie confused... thats me.
rambling rhonda you can call me now....
bye for now

I promise that I will get back on later and blog something real.
For now, I just got this email from Edgar J Winter Astrologer.. and here is a message that might affect a few of us Mary's (and others)... I think it kinda explains it eh...
If you are about 42 to 44 years old the Eclipse of 13 degrees Virgo on Sunday 4th March is sitting on the space that Pluto held during those years at your birth. You have lately been in a cocoon and now you are being urged out to become a butterfly! Some of you might alienate others and at times you will feel antisocial perhaps resisting change too much. You need human comfort and intimacy and positive self affirmation from others. Miracles can occur to you this next 6 months and whatever stationery feeling you may have experienced recently this is a prelude to a miraculous rescue by higher forces.

How many times does something have to come up for me - for me to be able to transcend the rubbish and move on..... obviously some thing i considered an asset of my personality is a liability.....
am dealing with loss..... loss of trust..... trust that was only recently regained.... misplaced?? I dont know.... Is this my shit or theirs..... more pondering obviously necessary.
On another note - have finished proof reading Helens book.... YAY - good to have it finished for her. I have to say that I am very impressed and cannot wait to get a copy of my own in my hot little hands. This is more a reference book - not something you can read and put down, but will keep referring to it over and over again. Look out for this one, highly recommended. And i am not just saying this because she is a friend of mine - if i thought it was ordinary, i just wouldnt mention it.
I dont have any upcoming work on the horizon that I know about... so am a free agent for the time being.... ahhhhh, bliss......
am very tired. time for bed. It annoys me now that the girls are teenagers, that they stay up later. I used to use this time after all the kidlets went to bed as a winding down, me time. Now they stay up late, I am staying up later and later just to get some peace. Hmmm, might have to start locking them in their cupboards earlier each night, no matter how hard they complain....
how do you like my chances, you other mothers of teens....
Why do banks charge a fee on "insufficient funds" when they know there is not enough money?
Why does someone believe you when you say there are four billion stars, but check when you say the paint is wet?
Why do they use sterilized needles for death by lethal injection?
Why doesn't Tarzan have a beard?
Why does Superman stop bullets with his chest, but ducks when you throw a revolver at him?
Why do Kamikaze pilots wear helmets?
Whose idea was it to put an "S" in the word "lisp"?
If people evolved from apes, why are there still apes?
Why is it that no matter what color bubble bath you use the bubbles are always white?
Is there ever a day that mattresses are not on sale?
Why do people constantly return to the refrigerator with hopes that something new to eat will have materialized?
Why is it that no plastic bag will open from the end on your first try?
How do those dead bugs get into those enclosed light fixtures?
When we are in the supermarket and someone rams our ankle with a shopping cart then apologizes for doing so, why do we say, "It's all right?" Well, it isn't all right, so why don't we say, "That hurt, you stupid idiot?"
In winter why do we try to keep the house as warm as it was in summer when we complained about the heat?
How come you never hear father-in-law jokes?

One girl also started Year 7, she is in the CAPA class (creative and performing arts), i think the first thing she informed the class was that she is loud. I am so glad that she told them that.... they would NEVER have figured that out for themselves..... hmmmmmm
Another girl into Year 9.... now it all starts to get a bit scary for me... a 15 year old.... in my house.... hmmm .... i can remember being 15..... (note to self - find patience, tolerance and strength before August this year)
I feel that this will be a good year for me. Last year seemed to be a year of reconnecting and mopping up. Getting ready so to speak. Well I am ready now - I have been freed up in so many ways - EXCELLENT. I even read a book yesterday, bliss. Have a project in mind for an artwork for my wall - got inspiration while in the shop Blue Star Elements in Darby St. Love that shop.
Some things on my mind today are:-
- Should I pursue a career in proof reading books. Am enjoying doing Helen's book.
- How much it would pay... would it be worthwhile, reading interesting books would be fun, not so fun if the book was boring as batshit.
- Where is my friend Cindy??? What happened to the blog addiction that she was supposed to have?? Her last post was titled "Bludging".... was that a sign of things to come... COME BACK CINDY!!!
- How do you console a child who gets a Year 9 elective that she didn't want?? Phone calls to the school has not resolved the matter. This is a course she will now have to do for two years..... Build a bridge??....
- Why am I so tired all the time?
- Why does Lisa think the name Jennifer suits me. I think it sounds stuck-up and posh - neither of which i am. I have only been called Jennifer when I am in trouble. Am I in trouble Lisa?? lol
A little while has passed since i started writing this post. The full moon is alive and kicking around here. We had a major meltdown...... Teenage hormones in full swing. Mother hormones in full swing. Sometimes I wonder why I bother.
Might do a Thelma and Louise. Anyone wanna come???
Will just crawl back into my corner now...
Catch you later....
