|08:13 am - Floods- unexpected reaction|
The floods in qld have brought up stuff for me that I wasn't expecting. One of the mums on my face book mums group has lost everything. Because she is classed as a flood zone she has just discovered that she is not covered. This is horrible. She has list thing from when her children were born her ultrasound pictures (including from her miscarried pregnancies) photos of passed loved ones and her child hood. But one of he things that is really bothering me is that her children have lost everything. I know it sounds odd. But her children losing everything is bringing stuff up for me that I thought was long dealt with.

Oh. God. Those poor kids. I hope they get the counseling they need. We didn't. You didn't think to get grief counseling for the kids back then. We needed it. But we didn't get it.

April 28th, 2011
Clearly, the universe only has so much happy for any one person. I don't have any depression issues, I don't have any major health issues, so I have to put up with have person, after person, after person die.
Maybe it all balances out in the end, maybe I am still on the upper level of the scale.... But this makes death number 8 since I fell pregnant.
Leon Hogan (my Uncle)
Norman McCarroll (my uncle)
Neil McCarroll (my uncle)
Peter Green (my great uncle)
Peter Murray (my sister-in-law's father)
Jean Comora (Barry's Grandma)
Luke Teal-Sinclair (Barry's Cousin)
Peter Trimnell-Ritchard (family friend)
The really horrible thing is that I think there is another.... There is something wrong when you can't actually keep track of everyone who has died.... That is just not right. You should not be able to lose track of that.
Death can go get fucked. fuck, fuck, fuckity, fuck.

|09:47 pm - Fun.... :D|
Well, today was so much fun..... I have never before been able to go shopping without a budget. :-)
Today we bought:
New DVD storage shelves.
New Fridge (big side by side)
small cordless upright vacuum
nespresso coffee maker
I spent about 4,000.
I love my job. I got my bonus in December, I was good and put money aside. Even with a "surprise" car repair and an insurance claim to pay, I had the money for my day of fun.
July will be TV & home theatre system and new washing machine. After that, my bonuses will be for savings.

|10:41 pm - Writer's Block: Do-over!|
If you were given a life do-over card, would you keep it or give it to a friend? If you kept it, would you prefer to be born to the same or different parents? Would you want to keep your memories?
I know that there are many things in my life that aren't perfect, and that certainly haven't gone well in the past, however.... I really do not believe that I would use it.... At the moment I am loving my life... all the bumps, all the dramas, I wouldn't change the past because it would change my present.
I would definitely give it to a friend. I am just not sure which friend. All in all, I love my life, I wish my friends could say the same.

|11:28 pm - First day back at work|
Ok, so, another first about to come about since I had Hannah.
I go back to work tomorrow. It is my first day back since I had her. She is now just over 6 months of age. Monday was her first day of Day Care. It was tough for me. I bawled my eyes out for the first 2 hours of my morning after dropping her off. The fact that it coincided with the death of my Great-Uncle did not help at all. I have a funeral on Monday for him. He had Alzheimer's, and was getting bad enough that he could not remember Hannah from meeting to meeting, in fact, he had to be reminded a number of times over the course of a couple of hours who she, Barry and I all were, and that Hannah was ours. It was less than pleasant. However, he was over 85. He had a heart condition, and it was causing him to have fluid on his lungs. He had an operation to repair the valve in his heart. The family knew that there was a chance he may not survive the surgery, but they went ahead anyway. It is sad, but I think it is also the best thing for Aunty Lesliegh, because it means that she is not caring for him when he is so bad that he is unable to care for himself at all. So, yes, that is another first... my first funeral with Hannah.
So, tomorrow is work. I have to tell my boss that I need my first monday back at work off :-) Not that I am problematic at all.....
So, this week's first:
Hannah's first day at Day Care
My first day without Hannah
My first day at work
Next week we have
My first funeral with Hannah...
I will eventually have my first full week at work... but not until my third week back at work.

|02:32 pm - Flight of the Navigator....|
Picked up this movie on DVD last night. Sat down and watched it today. It was awesome. Considering it was an 80's sci-fi movie... it has almost no dated special effects. It stands up well. Is amusing to see a very young Sarah Jessica Parker.
Such a good movie. Glad I went to the effort of asking about it.

|08:50 pm - SUNBURN!!!|
I went to a picnic today (had an awesome time with school friends). I knew I didn't have sunscreen on so I made sure I stayed in the shade all day. I was under a tree...
I hate being whitey-mc-white....
I am burnt to a complete crisp.... Back, shoulders, front, arms, hands, face, neck, even my damn leg from sitting cross legged!!!
BUT I WAS GOOD AND STAYED IN THE SHADE!!!!!
EDIT: They need a emotion choice for "sulky"
