This was an old page, that I was reminded about yesterday, and when I went to look for where it was, I realised I had never shared it. It also sums up perfectly where I have been for the last week and so I thought I would use it for this post (despite the spelling mistake that is especially irritating to a spelling nazi, but I embrace that too :)). And it gives me somewhere to point someone too, so it is especially perfect!
Where has the last week gone?? Much of it has been taken up with a houseguest that has been here for over a week now, and is still here for a little while I think. And he has brought some challenging issues with him, as much as we love him dearly. The oldest friend of my beloved, friends since they were 6, and drifting at the moment. I think I can safely say he is drifting, if not quite a drifter!! :)
And I missed out on my dream job because my level of Maori language was not fluent, which still seems gutting when they were apparently more than impressed with what other skills I had and I had provided a solution, yet now when I think about it, it feels so long ago since the initial heartbreak when I first heard and the box of tissues I used up. Maybe the decision was for the best with the benefit of reflection and perspective. The difference in a week!
Yesterday I found out I had another interview, which was unexpected and gratifying at the same time. Not quite a dream job, but perhaps that is better. Though my confidence took a knock last week, and I had a moment yesterday.
I have had so many posts written in my head, and now I have time, I am filtering what to leave for another post (besides the two saved to drafts which were started, if not finished!). Because there is also a tonne of catch up photos for ICAD. Which I have done everyday, despite other demands around me. Even on the days when I really wanted to sink into the couch and not move.
The children have both had at home days in the past week. Only a few more days until the last day of term, and Victoria had a Mental Health day on Monday (which I saw coming last week, but with all the days off she has had this term with her asthma I was hoping she would last) and Sebastian is home with a cold today. I woke up with the same cold, so I have allowed us today to be sick, and then it is to go tomorrow, because I have things to do and an interview on Friday.
I have felt really bone tired all week. Especially yesterday, but I haven’t let myself get stuck there, I automatically think it is my thyroid and keep on going, making sure I have had the correct dose of my thyroid tablets in my head. Now I am sick, I see the tiredness was probably a sign, but now I always self diagnose it as my faulty thyroid. I coughed once this morning and felt a popping my throat where it immediately began throbbing. When I heard Sebastian cough about three minutes later and then give a little moan I knew he was home today as well. I also wonder why it is that the children always get sick when my beloved is away for work. Considering he is away every week, I guess there is a good chance of that happening, but I wish their bodies would plan better to account for my maternal limitations. :)
And on for the ICAD reveal :)
