Too much stuff to do

It is a long school break for the kids ,, my Primary school kids have 6 weeks off while my High school girl have 8 weeks off, aside from going out with friends , she is also working 2 -3 times a week .. We are also almost finishing building the house and hopefully will be moving by the end of January ,,, but there are still heaps of stuff to do ,, overwhelming and making us feel lazy to do stuff.. I was looking at the kids room and checking out which are the things to be purged ,, although we already purged a lot of stuff before we move in here in the rental place ,, I still feel that I still need to do some more purging ,, like for example ,, do we really need to bring the sports trophies of my kids to the new house??? Before I almost forgot I still have the baby cot and changing table in the garage ,, which I told myself that I will put on Ebay ,, but never had a chance to do it.... I promise myself that I have to be inspired and start working and moving my butt so I can can accomplish things .... Yes starting the year 2011

Opening of gifts

It was a really hot day here in Oz on Christmas day ,,,  Christmas morning , the kids woke up early , really early!  they went to our room and woke up too ,, really excited and nagging us to go down and check out the gifts that Santa left for them....
We have to get out of bed and dash downstairs to check it out ,, True enough !!! Santa passed by !!
Yippee as the kids gleamed with excitement ...  Ok Santa's gifts first and my boy was wo happy and the expression on his face was priceless as he opened the gift , there was his sought after Buzz Lightyear from The Toy Story 3 movie ,, yes ,, Santa checked his letter and the elves did a great job ,,,  my lil princess on the other hand received a dress up trunk , then time to unwrap the gifts from Mummy and Daddy ,, boy had a toy hunting binoculars  which he loved ,,,  Thomas the Tank Mystic Island rescue and some bits and pieces of small toys ,, girl received a Fur real play set and a Bratz doll ..  yes its been such a good Christmas ,, kids are spoilt and had a great fun,,,  so what's in for next year?????

Late shopping

On the eve of Christmas I went to the shops around 3 pm ,, yes I consciously went to the shops that time to avoid the traffic,, hard to park , Oz heat , rushing and frantic people ,, and that is the best way to shop when most of the people are exhausted and on the way home.. There is also heaps of SALE the last minute sale when most of the retailers put their items futher down ..
I still have to get something or my hubby's grandparents,, browsing through the chocolate items, Organic Food Gift Baskets ,, wine section and plants ,, choices choices ,, lots of them and all wrapped up ... But I ended up getting them a box of nice chocos..
With kidsin the trolley I walked briskly and went to the grocery to buy some ingredients for our cookies for Santa , done shopping in a flash and I was glad that I went there at that time of the day ...Merry Christmas everyone!

No need to worry yet

Yeahh,, its the time of the year again .... Festive season means a lot of parties, get together and merry making,, and it wouldn't be complete without drinking and eating ..
I was 5 kilos lighter last year because we were going on a holiday ,and I went into healthy diet before the said holiday so that I would look good ,, yeah but now ,, I feel frumpy and I really needed to loose that extra 5 kilos,,, but hey its holiday ,, I guess I shouldn't worry about it for awhile,, don't think about cleanse colon ,, lemon detox, diet pills , Zumba, gym, booth camp , power walking ,, wheeww,, just typing these words makes me feel exhausted already ...
They say enjoy and be merry ,, Tis the season to be happy ,,, well blow up the diet and go pig out ,, worry about it later ... I just couldn't be bothered yet ,, so just Enjoy it and have Fun everyone...

Need to access

I have things to do before the end of this year ,,, first of all I wanted to go to the our local doctor to get a referral for my boy to go to the pediatrician so I can get the Item 135 for kid's with Autism .
The new items are available to treat children under 13 years of age with autism or any other pervasive developmental disorder, such as Rett's disorder, Asperger's syndrome or childhood disintegrative disorder. Consultant psychiatrists and paediatricians will also be able to refer children to eligible psychologists, speech pathologists and occupational therapists for assistance with diagnosis or contribution to a treatment plan, and early intervention treatment.

This is done here in Australia and can be accessible for kids who have Autism, there are heaps of stuff to help those who have disability ,, just need to seek and learn more about it and how they can help ,,, I dont know how it works in the US ,, I was looking at the ssdi Social Security Disability Insurance and how it works ,, anyway ,, its good that there are ways to help those who are in need ..

So I make sure that my boy can continue his Speech therapy and gain confidence through the said process...

Fun...


Today I have to ring up our local doctor to make an appointment for B1 ,, its just a normal appointment to see the doctor before the year ended... B1 has no troubles going to the doctor ,, he likes having his ears checked by using welch allyn otoscope , check his mouth and listen to his heart .. just the non invasive procedures... kids like that ,, they know it and get used to it and sometimes play doctor at home ,, but when it comes to taking medication ,, having needles injection ,, now way !! but unfortunately ,, I cannot get an appointment ,, it was fully booked and the doctor will be on holidays and will be back on the 17th of January 2011 .. So I have to go to another doctor for an appointment .. ahh such a hassle ...
Anyway,, today the kids are having so much fun dressing up ... Bought them Mr and Mrs Santa costume and a reindeer nose and antler for my car ,, they are so cute and they had a ball ,, dancing and having their photos taken.....

Feeling my age....

Being forty and getting cranky ,, I think that is what I am .. Another milestone and some new maybe some new surprises in life....
Being cranky is no good ,,, but I try my best to avoid things that make me feel that way,,, I should be happy because Im in good health and also my family ,, even my mum who is 78 years she has a High blood pressure but is taking a maintenance medication for it ...
My hubbys grandma who suffers from arthritis needs some maintenance too.. I checked the web www.treatmentsforarthritis.net to find out more how she can manage it ... But that is the aging process ,, bodies tend to fail and show some weakness,, that is why I should always feel happy knowing I am in good health and that is what I am wishing for ...
